Chipotle Roseville

Dear Chipotle,

It has been almost two years since I have last written you. During that time, a lot has changed in my life. I have matured, had minor success in my career, and I have upped my Chipotle intake to 3-4 times a week.

One thing that has not changed in my life is an ongoing travesty that has been overlooked for far too long. I am talking about an injustice for the ages; a lone tarnished mark on an otherwise flawless canopy of a “burrito heaven of a metro area”. I am speaking of the disappointing lack of a Chipotle in the Roseville, Minnesota area. Zip Code 55113.

Here is a map of the Chipotle restaurants in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis and St. Paul) metro area.

I don’t like to talk about work on this website for two reasons; 1) it’s not very exciting and 2) I am unemployed.

Well, I guess technically I am employed, but the extent of my employment is debatable. For the last year, I have spent most of my time sitting in my bedroom, chatting on MySpace, and collecting paychecks under the guise of being a computer consultant. It’s freaking awesome.

Awesome as it is, there is a major pitfall to being self (un) employed; no corporate perks. It’s great being self employed because I earn 100% of the profits made by the my company, but at the same time, I incur 100% of the expenses. Naturally, I try to spend as little as possible in order to take home as much profit as possible.

This means that I don’t really get many opportunities to do things in excess. No frills, no conferences, no strippers, no filet mignon, no 18 year old scotch and no staying in the presidential suite at hotels.

I didn’t realize how much I was missing out until my recent trip to Los Angeles.
