And The Best Thing in The Universe Award Goes To…

29 May

I know I’ve deemed far more than one thing the best thing ever.

To quote William Blake, “The man who never alters his opinion is like standing water, and breeds reptiles of the mind.” 

In order to prevent mind reptiles, I am, once again, altering my opinion about the best thing ever. 

The best thing ever is Prancercise. Period.

You Might Be Impressed

17 Nov

Tonight, I made oatmeal cookies from scratch. I dumped trail mix into the batter. You might need to try this recipe. It’s pretty damn delicious.

It’s the time of year where warm, fresh cookies are highly apropos. 

I also just returned from Bali and can’t stop eating fattening American fare. 

Jonathan Rockwell is going to weep when he sees me. Seriously. 

Zombie Infested Race of the Day

25 Sep

My brother, Zach, just turned me on to one of the coolest things evah:  A zombie infested 5K obstacle course race!!!

The event is called Run for Your Lives. Here’s the lowdown:

Protect your brain and run for your life. This is one race where your legs giving out are the least of your problems. Run For Your Lives is a first-of-its-kind event, one part 5K, one part obstacle course, one part escaping the clutches of zombies — and all parts awesome.

Runners will navigate a series of 12 obstacles throughout a 5K course in an attempt to reach the finish line — all while avoiding zombies. At the end of this adventure race, you get to celebrate survival (or zombie transformation) with live entertainment and music, local celebrities, vendors, food, and of course, beer!

Lazy Cakes Evening: Mission Aborted!

11 Aug

Well, so much for my Lazy Cakes evening experiment. 

I just realized I didn’t include a link to the Lazy Cakes site in the last post, thus, I Googled ‘Lazy Cakes’ so I could get the URL and edit the post. 

Lo and behold, my Google search revealed new info released last week: Lazy Cakes have been deemed unsafe by the FDA and are in danger of being seized from shelves if their manufacturer, HBB LLC, does not recall the product! 

According to a NY Daily News report, “Michael Roosevelt of the FDA said the agency is not aware of data that establishes the safety of melatonin for use as an ingredient in foods. He cited medical research that has shown concerns about potential reproductive, cardiovascular, ocular and neurological issues as side effects of using the drug.”

Melatonin is what puts the lazy in lazy cakes, by the way. 

The original Lazy Cakes web site has been disabled. Now, the product name has been changed to Lazy Larry, complete with new web site

SCANDAL!!!

Look, I’m not a huge fan of the FDA, but I think I’ll go ahead and skip this experiment, regardless. 

Borrrr-ing!

I just read Rabbi Shais Taub‘s Huffington Post blog post, Was the World Powerless to Stop Amy Winehouse?, and I’ve gotta say, he presents quite an interesting point.
