Illinois Wesleyan omelette omelet

Illinois Wesleyan omelette omelet

Back from 1993-1997, the best omelettes in the world could be found at Illinois Wesleyan University’s food court cafeteria salon, Saga, or technically known as Marriott Bertholf Commons. It is my wish to be able to recreate these famed omelettes. I have had no such luck in recent weeks. If anyone knows what egg ingredient […]

Previously I blogged about my wish to have a life-size wire-frame moose Christmas light decoration. I’ll take this life-size 6.5 foot resin moose. Who wants to give me $2,900 to buy it? Oh and shipping someone’s gotta pay to ship it from Louisiana to Illinois. www.GrocerySurvey.net $100 gift card

inside Google

Visit insideyoursearch.com for a parody of how Google works. It’s clever cuz they flipped the Google homepage to give you Google’s perspective, but the rest is just weird. I’ll save you some time. It’s an old lady who whizzes around an old library with old book shelves, an old globe, an old ladder, and an […]
