Flip-flops have made their return. I’m not exactly a “flip-flop” guy, but when the weather calls for it I have no other recourse. Thankfully, I work in an environment that allows such fashion statements.
Three Body Parts Of Which I Am Proud
Genetics have not blessed me in all areas, however these three body parts make me proud
1. Calves – More than any feature of my body my calves, which are large and well-defined, have garnered unsolicited compliments.
2. Eyelashes – Perhaps the only thing girls in my high school wanted from me; they are long and full.
3. Feet – Unlike most people who exercise regularly (well, there was a day when I exercised regularly) my feet have not suffered from calluses or destroyed toenails. This is why I have no problems wearing flip-flops to work.

Last night I rammed a can of Bud Light up a chicken’s butt (the only thing I’d ever do with a can of Bud Light), schmeared the chicken with spices and then roasted it for abuot an hour. Damn it was good! The potato pictured was also baked to perfection. The only failure was the baking of the onion which was stuffed with garlic cloves. I believe that it was Meat Loaf (another fine dinner suggestion) who once said that “two out of three ain’t bad”.
Because I was feeling frustrated with my D50 and lazy this photo was taken with my Pentax Optio s5i point-and-shoot. I think I need to clean the D50′s sensor because I don’t think that my exposures are what they should be. I am having to bump my ISO way up to get satisfactory shutter speeds even when I am shooting wide open in what I believe is decent light. Suggestions?
On tonight’s menu: I am making Jambalaya
Are You Serious?
I couldn’t believe it when Aaron was determined to be physically unable to continue on Hell’s Kitchen. Was it something about him fainting for no reason whatsoever (again)? The fact that he was around long enough to see show number three was more than a crockful of shit to me. What’s even more bizarre was that he seemed surprised, or was acting surprised, by the decision to can him as he received a call in a hospital bed!
If I didn’t know better I’d think that Ramsay was going to have aneurism by making this series. I do believe that he made the right decision in last night’s episode by booting Joanna — the woman who stated that she didn’t care who she had to fuck over to win. And why Jen decided that it was okay to pull pasta off the top of the trash, wash it, “recook it” and then attempt to serve it still confuses the hell our of me. What sort of chef does that?!? Didn’t she see that Seinfeld episode with George and the eclair?
CD Pick Of The Week
If I was from Jersey (which exit?) then today’s pick would be a slam dunk — Bon Jovi, Bon Jovi, Bon Jovi. However, I’m from New York so I am required to make fun of the Bon Jovi-loving, Camaro-driving, residents who hail from the state on stop south of my home state.
If I follow the critics over at Metacritic then my choice is not that much harder; according to them today’s best is “Icky Thump” by the White Stripes. My other two possibilities today are Polyphonic Spree’s “The Fragile Army” or The Mooney Suzuki’s “Have Mercy”.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – Frustrated although now LMAO because I just read a spam email sent to me which said “The owners of big penises are the owners of the world.” Oh, if it was only that simple…
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing R.E.M. — “Wolves, Lower” (Have I ever mentioned how much I still love early R.E.M.?)
