Favorite Fall Snack

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

It is fall, candy corn is in all the stores…and eating it seems like an ok thing to do on occasion. What is better than plain candy corn? Candy corn and Planters dry roasted peanuts mixed together. Never had it? It is a great sweet/salty combo (best enjoyed with exercise and plenty of water)! Enjoy.

We All Make Mistakes…Even McDonalds

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I was just about to write a post about how excited I was that McDonalds is starting up their Monopoly game and when I went to go to their web site to get some details – I got the generic Apache page (indicating a web server issue). While I am still excited about Monopoly – this gives me a chance to talk about making mistakes. When I think of McDonalds, I think of a well oiled machine. All processes and procedures are well documented and implemented millions of times every day – thus the consistency we all appreciate. There are… Read More »

Last week I did some browsing and found something really awesome (for the Chipotle fans out there) – an iPhone app that will find the nearest Chipotle(s) then allow you to place an order using the iPhone app. The application is call Chipotle Ordering and is a free download. No more waiting in line or carrying a paper filled with Amy’s weird requests. I am super excited with this look forward to quick and easy Chipotle visits.

Pumpkin Seeds

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I love pumpkin seeds and I absolutely love the fall because I can get some pumpkins, carve them, and then cook and eat their wonderful seeds. I have also been suckered into trying off-season pumpkin seeds from just about every company that makes them…and they all have been a huge disappointment in some way or another. (Too salty, stale, no flavor, etc) A few months ago while at Whole Foods – I decided to try their pumpkin seed hearts in bulk. The only downfall with these are they are only the hearts – so you do not get the enjoyment… Read More »

A Saturday With Ben!

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Someone that I worked with for eight years came to town this past weekend for a meeting and I was fortunate enough to meet up with him on Saturday. It was quite interesting to me that I felt as though he never left – we just picked up where we left off. (Except for the fact we were both working different places and happy working) A big thanks to Ben for a nice Saturday, his chauffeur services, the dinner at Lawry’s, and the wonderful picture I have hanging in my office! Rock on!

Jappler Recommends: McDonalds' Online Monopoly Game

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 4 Comments

If there is one thing I absolutely love about McDonalds (besides their superior Coke mixture) I love their Monopoly game. I even dreamt about the game a few nights ago that I pulled off Park Place and Boardwalk from the same Coke…and won $246. With that said – the excitement of pulling off the little game pieces from my medium Coke and putting them onto the board is usually enough to make me smile. I happened to have a pile of pieces at my house (maybe 6) and decided to go online and check out their “online Monopoly game“. When… Read More »

Trader Joes' Guarantee

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 2 Comments

Today I went into a Trader Joe’s to pick up some beer and the the guy at the checkout reminded me that if I did not like the beer I was welcome to bring it back for a full refund. I told him I was very impressed with their customer service and he told me it was to promote customers being more adventurous. I have been a Trader Joe’s for a few years now and even more so after tonight. I love that they want their customers to be more adventurous with their choices. Cheers to Trader Joe’s for making… Read More »

moxie and tax day.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Well, as 2005 is my first year as a small business owner, I am learning something new everyday. On Monday, I learned the importance of having a really good accountant, as he called me and gave me a heads up on the fact that my 2005 taxes were due today. Thankfully he prepared an extension letter and sent me the details of what I would need to do to make sure I would not be penalized. I had met with my accountant earlier this year to learn QuickBooks and to get to know him before tax time…thankfully that paid off…. Read More »
