I find this site amazing and kind of scary: Fancy Fast Food. Someone takes a fast food meal and re-processes it without adding any extra ingredients into something fancy.

Turning A BK breakfast croissanwich into a really good looking quiche is just...wow. I mean, I know that the food there is evil incarnate and filled with god-knows-what kind of preservatives that are probably causing cancer and birth defects, but it's still amazing to see the transformation you can make with it.

It doesn't make me want to eat fast food, oddly enough. Because I've seen the pictures of the 12-year-old McDonald's Hamburger that didn't rot. Seriously. It looks almost the same as the fresh one. If that doesn't scare the crap out of you, nothing can.

Good morning!

Today is the first day this week I haven't gotten up and gone walking/jogging. Lately, I've been doing it at, like, 6:45 in the morning. But that's because Andrew leaving wakes me up and so I just stay awake. Plus, it's been very cool in the mornings (in the 60's!), so I figure, make hay while the sunshines.

Also, saw a cool meme via [livejournal.com profile] desperance. 100 Foods That Every Omnivore Should Eat At Least Once.

Here’s what you to do:

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.

The 100 Foods List )

I actually struck out more things than I bolded. I think that's because I don't eat seafood, food that's painful, and I don't feel like "scotch with a cigar" should count as a food. I might try Scotch someday, but I will *never* smoke.

When you have a grandfather who's become a respiratory invalid due to years of smoking like a chimney, you just can't do it. I also struck out the "bottle of whiskey that costs more than $120" on a general principal of "fuck that, I can get drunk off the cheap stuff".

I don't tend to believe that just because a food is very expensive that it's automatically better. Especially since I've tried escargot, and frankly, it tastes like rubbery, salty chicken. I can have actual chicken for about a fourth of the price.

But I also am amused that "funnel cakes" make it onto the list, but fried oreos didn't. Trust me, before you die, you *must* have a fried oreo. Nutritionally speaking, it's batter dipped evil, but it tastes really good.

Mr. Softie is trying to KILL ME WITH THEIR ICE CREAM. It's like they're trying to push me towards a diabetic coma or something. Is it weird I almost typed that out as comma?

They were out in force yesterday. I saw the trucks twice between the park and my office.

They know I don't need ice cream, but there they are, with their cheap tasty cones and their siren song of "you know you want it, don't you deserve a little frozen goodness".

Resistance is looking futile. *headdesk*.

Come on, it's October. Isn't it time for the roasted peanut guys yet?

I don't even bother resisting those guys. A buck for roasted peanuts on a frosted day? Hell. Yeah.
