Fair Food




I've been entirely too busy the last 2 months.  Only got 1 workout in during that time frame, but I'm turning over a new leaf (I got a workout in today).

I DID manage to make it by the Tulsa State Fair last night.

As part of the ritual, I ate as many weird foods as I could stand.

1)  I ate the greasiest, nastiest cheese curds on the face of the earth and they nearly made me sick.

2)  I ate a donut hamburger.  A glazed Krispy Kreme donut with all the hamburger stuff on it (patty, lettuce, pickle, bacon, etc.) and then topped with a maple Krispy Kreme donut.  (It was very good, but difficult to eat.  I had to smash it down to fit in my mouth. I was afraid icing was going to get in my eyebrows it was so messy.)

3)  I ate chocolate covered bacon (and it was wonderful!).  The best part about it was the excellent dark chocolate it was coated in.  It would have been great even without the bacon.  It came in a cardboard container like Chinese take-out and they kept it so cold that frosty mist came out when I opened it.  It was great!

So the next time you go to the fair, if you're not sick when you leave, you didn't do it right.

Imperial March on 16 Floppy Drives

Best use I've seen yet for old floppy drives.

And here's another one doing the same thing with only 3 drives.  I think I actually like this one better because it does so much with so little AND you can see the internals.

Dukes Autotrader Mini-Movie

I had caught quick pieces of the Dukes of Hazzard Autotrader commercial(s), but I don't watch enough television that I had see it in it's entirety.

Apparently, Autotrader produced a 2 1/2 minute "mini-movie" that they split into 3 commercials.  All 3 commercials and the consolidated mini-movie are on youtube, but the mini-movie is more fun to watch and has a few more details that they cut out of the 3 commercials.

It's pretty cool.
