McDonald’s iPhone App

I ordered using the McDonald's app for the first time today. I chose in-store pickup. I stood near the counter and waited. I saw my number come up on the board. I saw my number move up to the top of the list. A little while later I looked up and my number was gone. I got in line at the register. When I got to the head of the line I asked about my order. The cashier said she had walked around the dining room calling my number. I asked if they could get my order now, please. She said it would be just a few minutes. I said, Okay. A few minutes later they had my order ready. The cashier offered a free dessert for my trouble.

Next time I'll be careful to choose table service. The tables at this location are labeled with a number to make it easier for the server to bring you your food.

Around the world by human power alone

The extraordinary story of Jason Lewis’ circumnavigation of the earth by human power alone is now available in a version for “young adults”.

Read more on his blog.

The adventure spans three books: Dark Waters, The Seed Buried Deep and To the Brink. I read each one as they became available for e-book and I couldn’t believe it was over when I finished the last page.
