for those of you who are not connected with me on good ‘ole facebook, let me catch you up: a few weeks ago before the first presidential debate, i posted “what do you think presidential candidates do before a debate? do you think they eat their favorite foods and listen to their favorite music? i hope so, and if it were me, it’d be raining #cheezits and #beyonce would be on full blast.” that was part one, and part one was a hoot! a bunch of my friends responded to this prompt and i decided to take action. this evening i gathered all the suggested snacks and enjoyed them in the comforts of my hotel room. cheez-its? check. kit-kats? check. cheetos? check. the only one i wasn’t able to get specifically were the dunkaroos suggested by courtney. the hotel airport shops seem to not carry them! so, in their place i had the on-the-go nutella/breadstick combo. quite tasty, if i do say so myself!
now, i had every intention of eating these things while actually watching the second presidential debate; however, my flight from lax to sacramento was wildly delayed. as such, i spent those couple of hours on the plane, sipping chardonnay in first class. i mean, if you’re going to be delayed, i suppose being delayed in first class is doable. #freeupgrade!
anyway. in addition to the favorite foods part of this question, i also put together a special #debates2016 playlist on spotify. per the suggestions of my amigos, it is a delightful mash-up of beyonce, britney spears, rihanna, marc broussard, miley cyrus, and girl talk. girl talk was a new group to me, and i very much enjoyed their hip hop remixes in between marc’s touchy feely ballads, especially his Christmas album. give me more of that “holy night”, marc!
now, with one more presidential debate scheduled for wednesday, october 19th, i want to get the people involved. i want you all to give me more of your snack and song favorites that i will happily consume and listen to in a couple weeks. this menu is going to be of the people and for the people, just how it should be! so, please be part of the fun and see how it all turns out!
p.s. if anyone feels like recommending a jimmy john’s #9, i’d be just fine with that. 😀
