“Which Panda Express locations in Dallas have Hot and Sour Soup?”

thumb-appetizers-hotsoursoupThat’s what I just Googled. I found nothing but outdated Yelp results, all of which made me insanely #hangry.

Most people would move on. Normal people. Not me. I really want drive-through hot and sour soup. So I continued my search.

Make… soup…? No thanks.

Apparently mandarin chicken and pork have disappeared from Panda Express. A hot issue! But not my issue. I decide I’ll create a movement.

I’m shocked to find there’s not already a change.org petition on this. Aren’t other people equally as bothered by the elusiveness of hot and sour soup in Dallas?

This isn’t a new issue for me.  As you can see below, I’d already tweeted @PandaExpress… and addressed my tweet to the Panda.

Yes, the date is November 2012.

Today I’m still in search of Panda Express Hot and Sour soup. Whenever I see one, I’m always tempted to pull in and check. But I’ve done the walk of shame out of the drive-through so many times, I’m not sure I can handle that kind of rejection again.

So, Internet blogosphere, if I may ask one thing of you, I ask that you kindly let me know if you ever find Hot and Sour Soup at a Dallas area Panda Express. I would be ever so grateful.

Buy Other People’s Designer Closets

I mentioned once before that I was obsessed, right? Well, it’s getting worse. I found this live auction app called Tophatter, which conducts lot auctions for Coach, jewelry and name brand cosmetics for way less than retail. They had me at Coach.

TopHatter

Some auctions start at $5 for Coach wristlets; others start at $1. Even the high end auctions are reasonable– an auction for a Coach tan  leather bag (retail price $385) started at $50 and sold for only $70. The app is free and you’ll get $5 free if you join using my invite code: 12ce76. I *might* have already used my free $5 credit  that I received when I joined within the first hour I was on the site. So really, I only paid $65 for that gorgeous tan pebbled leather turnlock hobo bag with the supple blue satin lining. … Yeah, justification… that’s the ticket.

Sell Your Closet

Dresses at Twice

I’m a bit obsessed. What started with selling a few gently used items around the house on Facebook sell/swap groups has progressed to all out clean out mania. Now I know there’s so many better options than Craig’s List or eBay. One great option is the site Twice.

Twice is the product of two ex-Google guys who grew up wearing second hand clothing. Since its launch in March 2012, their inventory has grown to 20,000 pieces and they’re still expanding. If you sign up now for Twice, you’ll receive $10 free credit. Here’s how it works:

Twice

Step 1: Clean Out Your Closet

Download a free shipping label, or request a free shipping bag to send Twice your clothes. It’s the easiest way to clean out your closet, and you’ll even earn a few bucks while doing it.

Step 2: Let Twice Do the Work

Once they receive your clothes, Twice will carefully review, measure, and professionally photograph every garment. You get paid upfront, plus they pay for shipping — it’s basically the easiest thing ever.

Step 3: Get Paid and Buy More!

They sell top brands are labels like J.Crew,Anthropologie, Ann Taylor, and more for up to 90% off retail.
