Epic Meal Time

Image
BACON!

One of my buddies from college came to visit Grant and I a week and a half ago and showed us this insane website called www.epicmealtime.com. The site features videos from some guys up in Canada eating ridiculous food concoctions. I am linking one of their videos called Fast Food Lasagna because I think it is a good intro video into the others.

These guys come up with some of the most unhealthy and insane dishes. Most of the time they end up in the fast food drive thru window line causing mayhem. If you haven't heard about these guys you really need to check them out.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the best part...

THEY PUT BACON ON EVERYTHING!!!!!

(this post is for you bacon lovers)

*Warning* They normally bleep out the curse words but I have noticed on a few episodes they sometimes miss. Just a heads up to all the P's out there.

What a Beautiful Morning

Image
"What a beautiful morning!" is what the man at the gas station said to me this morning. When I got out of my car at the gas station the man filling up on the other side popped his head around and said to me, "What a beautiful morning! It's finally cooled down and the weather is great." I agreed with him and then he said to me "Do you have a job?" I answered yes I do. He immediately said to me, "So do I! I just got a new job." I congratulated him and then he shook my hand and said "Thank you, thank you. I just got a job washing dishes. What a beautiful morning it is to wake up and go to work." I found this so inspiring. The man was older and he must have been out of work for awhile. The economy is still pretty rough for a lot of people and a lot of folks are still out of work. I wanted to share this moment with everyone because it reminds us that every morning is a beautiful morning to wake up. I know I will remember this moment e…

Last day in Chicago

Image
Grant and I have had a blast in Chicago this week. It's been a nice easy going vacation. we walked through Millennium Park, Grant Park, Navy Pier, The Shed Aquarium, Magnificent Mile, The Theater District, Northwestern Campus and all through The Loop.


We also ate at some amazing restaurants. Our first night we ate at a restaurant right next to out hotel called Eatt. This place was delicious! we both got the meatloaf. the meatloaf has a piece of Texas toast on the bottom a huge slice of meatloaf wrapped in bacon and on top of that a massive pile of shoe string onions. the meal looks like a heart attack waiting to happen but surprisingly not greasy and was the best meatloaf I've ever had (yes it competes with my moms).


On Wednesday we took it easy and wandered around the city. we made out way down to the Cloud Gate and then over to Millers Pub. This should be a stop on any trip. Millers has been known to serve all sorts of famous people and used in movies. The food is good a…

PSN FAIL!

Image
I'm sure millions of people are blogging on this already but I feel the need to put my two cents in. Grant and I were already annoyed by the recent PSN outage but when we heard this week that are information might have been compromised we were furious (and still are). Yesterday Grant went ahead and canceled the card that was on the account which was a huge deal since we are about to leave for Chicago next week and will now have to wait on another card. Luckily we have my card while we are in Chicago. Grant also went ahead and changed all the passwords on our accounts. If you have not done these things yet I suggest you do. I have heard reports that no ones credit card information was compromised but I have also heard reports of people saying theirs was.

What really bothers me about the whole thing is how PSN has handled the situation. News was slow moving to get to PSN customers about the potential leak of information. They waited a week to release that information and then only r…

I Hate Trains

Image
This morning for the 2nd time in a row the train blocked my way into work. This has happened many times in the past and I have changed the time when I leave for work and it doesn't seem to matter. It seems there is always a train! This morning the train crossed in the middle of the morning rush hour. I don't understand why there is a train running in the middle of Jackson and the Jackson area during this time. As I crossed the tracks I noticed that there was another train waiting to cross as well! 2 trains running during rush hour! That is insane!

Winter weather in Mississippi. Wasn't it just 80 degrees?

Image
Looks like crews are prepared for the ice. This was taken in the parking lot of MS braves stadium this morning around noon. Electric company trucks were lined up ready to dispatch and crews were setting up tents, bringing in generators and catering trucks. Thank you to the workers who go out in the weather to keep us warm and get us back up and running. There is a lot of ice on the roads and cars had a nice glaze of ice that have been sitting out in the weather this morning. In Flowood there was already some accumulation of ice and snow at dogwood festival. The sidewalks were also developing a glaze of ice. Here in Mississippi we aren't prepared for this kind of weather. Should be an interesting evening.
