Burger King, KFC, & skumfiduser

La versión en español está después de la versión en inglés.

Some shots of our day at Marbella’s La Cañada shopping center last week. We looked at iMac computers at the Apple store and “dined” on chicken sandwiches at Burger King. I spent a few minutes walking the aisles of the gift and novelty shop, Tiger, which was filled with novelty items for Halloween. My favorite was the set of Speak No Evil, See No Evil, Hear No Evil skeletons. After lunch, San Geraldo spotted KFC across the way and was convinced I hid it from him. He loves it; I hate it. There was also a place called Brooklyn Burger. Burger King was okay for a change, although the fast food was prepared in slow motion. I wouldn’t mind a burger right now. Today is clear-liquid diet day. Still, I’m not feeling desparate enough for KFC.


Algunas fotos de nuestro día en el centro comercial La Cañada de Marbella la semana pasada. Miramos computadoras iMac en la tienda de Apple y “cenamos” sándwiches de pollo en Burger King. Pasé unos minutos caminando por los pasillos de la tienda de regalos y novedades, Tiger, que estaba llena de artículos novedosos para Halloween. Mi favorito fue el conjunto de esqueletos Speak No Evil, See No Evil, Hear No Evil. Después del almuerzo, San Geraldo vio un KFC al otro lado del camino y se convenció de que se lo escondí. El lo ama; Lo odio. También había un lugar llamado Brooklyn Burger. Burger King estuvo okay para variar, aunque la comida rápida se preparó en cámara lenta. No me importaría una hamburguesa en este momento. Hoy es el día de la dieta de líquidos claros. Aún así, no me siento lo suficientemente desesperado por KFC.

• In spanish, a “flower pot” is “una maceta” and a boob is “una teta.” So these would be “macetas tetas.”
• ¿Macetas tetas?
• Do you remember how I read this wrong a while back (click here). I read it as scumdiffuser. In Danish, skumfiduser means marshmallows.
• ¿Recuerdas cómo leí esto mal hace un tiempo (haz clic aquí). Lo leí como scumdiffuser(difusor de escoria). Skumfiduser, en danés, significa malvaviscos (nubes).
• An XL skumfidus (marshmallow, singular).
• Un XL skumfidus (malvavisco, singular).
• Summer sale at Natuzzi. Normally €1,340 this end table can be yours for a mere €670. See more from Natuzzi here. According to their website, they will “give your home a touch of sophistication and chic luxury.” What do you think?

    1. Jim:
      There’s a La Cañada in Los Angeles County, California, too. Jerry’s sister thought it was pronounced like Canada. I think the end table is made of 18K gold and has been painted to look like ordinary metal and wood.

  1. A couple more days of this diet and you will look like the three guys in the box. A bit of a pricy table,

    1. David:
      The table isn’t even original. Available all over town for a lot less money. But then you couldn’t say you bought at Natuzzi.

  2. I love all your pictures and the different selection of items. I’m with you I can’t stand KFC. I used to love the original recipe chicken but when I read an article of how they raise and treat their chickens and abuse them I haven’t ate there since it’s been at least 10 years.

    1. Mistress Borghese:
      I have never ever liked KFC. It’s all SG would eat whenever I would go out of town.

  3. KFC also fell out of favour with me years ago — and hearing Stephen Colbert refer to #45 as “The Notorious KFC” last week was the cherry on top!

  4. I like the table, though it wouldn’t do in our home, and I wouldn’t shell out €670 or even 649.25USD.

    I cannot remember the last time I had fast food. It was literally sometime last century.

    1. Bob:
      I’ve seen the table in every furniture store in the area. For anywhere from €69 to €279. If we had bought the table when we arrived in Spain in 2011, given the exchange rate at the time, it would have cost $1,005. It’s truly a bargain now. Should I order one for you?

  5. There used to be 4 wise monkeys, the fourth saying was ‘Do no evil’ and it’s hand(s) was on it’s genitals. It was deemed inappropriate so was removed … ? by the woke brigade!

    1. Karen:
      And I understand the fourth monkey could be seen either covering his genitals or crossing his arms.

  6. Having spent two days in the hospital some years ago after getting food poisoning at SG’s fave place, I would have to agree with your assessment of the joint. 🙁

  7. €1,340 for that crap “table”? Even €670 would be a joke! Looks like something you’d pick up (if you really wanted something that tacky) from IKEA for about twenty quid…

    I’m with you on KFC, but Burger King is simply disgusting. Jx

    1. Jon:
      The table can be found all over. Different materials, I’m sure. Like maybe stainless steel instead of 14K gold. But who cares? I used to like Burger King AND McDonalds. Now, they’re simply a last resort. But, KFC… never.

    1. Sassybear:
      I’m still tempted to go back and buy those skeletons. The theme would actually be fun thing to collect.
