have coupon, won't starve

i'm a scientist. so, you can trust me when i say this. it is one of the fundamental laws of nature that when one is broke, and one receives coupons from Subway in the mail for dirt-cheap sandwiches, even if one is not a sandwich person, one will eat the aforementioned sandwiches, and like them.

yes, it's true. i generally don't like sandwiches. this will surely come up again, but i think it's something we need to address right off the bat. people usually think this is a silly position, but i think that a sandwich is only as good as its contents, and so why not just eat what's on the inside, and eat more of it, and not clutter it up with all that bread? (i'm also not a bread person, but that's a more complicated stance that we'll discuss another time).

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanyway, this coupon was for a 6-inch sub for $1.99 with the purchase of a 32-oz drink. THIRTY TWO OUNCES. DO YOU PEOPLE HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MUCH SODA THAT IS?! i do now. the only really noteworthy point i have to make is that i found it hilarious that i ate my sub on the subway. i think alanis morisette's songwriters need to hear about this.
julie's rules for ordering at Subway:
  1. order whatever type of sub you like on any kind of bread. this makes little to no difference.
  2. order cheese, even though it's not good.
  3. have them toast your sub. this is where the cheese is critical.
  4. get as many of the veggie toppings as you can. anything that you can tolerate and don't viscerally hate, should go in there.
  5. two words: spicy mustard.
  6. it's also a good idea to ask them to sprinkle a little oregano and/or black pepper on it before they roll it up. i usually forget to do this, but it does a world of good.
seriously, i'm not some kind of subway fanatic - it was just a pretty solid set of coupons.

See, I also don't like sandwiches, but it's because I believe you shouldn't complicate perfectly good bread with schmutz.

Granted, this only holds true for high end yuppy sandwiches, but I suppose my general feeling is that the combination of bread and filling never improves either.
