Pizza Hut

My son wanted Pizza Hut last night, so we went into one of the sit-down restaurants. The guy comes over and takes our order, then never brings us our drinks. I had to get up and go get the guy and remind him we wanted them. Then he kept coming over and asking if we wanted refills (big-time overkill). When we were ready to go, we asked him for two ToGo boxes for the pizzas. He brings two tiny boxes made for those single personal pan pizzas (the look on his face while he was trying to figure out how to fit two large pizzas in two tiny boxes… I will never forget that look). I was specific this time and asked for two large boxes to fit two large pizzas. He never showed up with them. I had to request them from another waitress, who kept apologizing profusely for the other guy. Apparently she knew he was an idiot. It wasn’t like they were busy. I think along with us there may be been two other families in there. That was the worst waiter I’ve ever had. No exaggeration.

If you ever go out to a sit down Pizza Hut and you get a waiter named Brian, run. Run and never look back. Or better yet, stay away from that nasty restaurant all together.

Android Security

As long as you do three things before downloading an app, you don’t need antivirus apps slowing down your phone and taking up valuable space.

1: Only download apps from legal reputable sites like the Google Play Store.

2: Read the comment section. People will scream if there’s something funky going on with an app.

3. Knowledge is power. Read these two forum threads:

Android permissions explained, security tips, and avoiding malware.

Galaxy S4 Case Reviews

I agonized over what cover I wanted for my new Google Play Edition Samsung Galaxy S4, so I ended up buying more than one. I also bought a really pretty battery cover.

First one I bought was the Elago Slim Fit in Camo Green for $9.99 (I didn’t bother with photographs). I do like it, but it doesn’t feel like it offers much in the way of protection if I accidentally drop my phone. Plus it shows fingerprints on the back, which to me seemed hard to wipe clean. I also found the side button holes to be a pain in the butt. I feel like I need to use my fingernails to get down in there just to push the buttons. Pretty all in all, but not something I will use every day.

This was my second purchase and is what caught my eye on Amazon and what led me to my third purchase: Tonyyan Flower Embossed Battery Cover Housing for $1.99 + $4.99 shipping = $6.98. One might think that because it was made and shipped from China that it would be cheap. It’s anything but. I’m extremely impressed with the artwork, the detail, and the fact that the battery cover fits like a glove. I ordered it on Aug 15th, but not sure when it was delivered since I just got home yesterday after being on vacation… it was in the mailbox. This battery cover is stunning, and since I love Asian designs I will more than likely purchase a few more of these.

My third purchase was the AmazonBasics Protective TPU Case in Frosted Clear for $5.99. Not much to say about this one other than it’s perfect for showing off my new battery cover. Hard to explain how this feels because it’s slick but sticky at the same time. Has a nice lip around the front edges so you can place the phone face down without the glass touching the surface. The buttons on the side of the phone are easily pressed with this case, too. I really like this case and would recommend it to anyone who loves TPU cases.

Now on to the photographs!
