Well another year has gone by, yes yesterday was my Birthday (yay Bastille Day). I think I’m starting to feel the 32 years I’ve been around, as will be witnessed by what I’m talking about this week..
First, let me just say, that I love fried foods. Moz Sticks, Provago Wheels, French Fries, Donuts.. it doesn’t matter, I’ll eat just about anything fried. So, what better way to merge two of my favorite things, into one. I found a “Fried Twinkie” recipe on the interwebs and thought I’d try it out. I’ve heard these are supposed to be the bomb-diggity, so why not.
Okay .. Let me just say, this was the WORST food for you ever. This thing, I’m sure, would kill a rhino! The batter was good, the gooey-ness of the twinkie inside was awesome. However, the heaviness of this thing I could tell was just choking off my arteries. It was a pretty good treat.. but the recipe called for making 6, and no one else would try them, so I felt compelled to eat three of these things… needless to say I was sick for the rest of the night!
Next, can I just say that I used to LOVE wrestling, when I was a kid. WWF, WWE or whatever it’s called now, I can see kids enjoying for entertainment value till about their 20′s (past that, I dunno). I myself, do not consider myself a sportsman by any means either. Loathe most of the normal sports (basketball, baseball, bad-mitten, what have you). But let me just say if you EVER get the chance to see a bout of roller derby, DO IT. This was the most awesome thing I’ve ever seen in my life. These girls were good sports and they worked HARD at what they do. You wouldn’t think that skating for 20 minutes at a time is very taxing, but just go watch these girls work out. It was the most entertaining thing I’ve seen since ABC’s Wipeout. And our girls trounced the Chicago Crew by 70 points. I’m definitely hooked, and think I will be getting tickets for every bout that I can!
Finally, on the gaming front, I finished Ghostbusters (on my birthday) on the casual “portion” of the game. The game was pretty awesome, and I will have a review coming here soon for that, but I would suggest it to anyone who liked the movie, was just as funny. Good to know that Aykroyd has not lost his touch!
It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve talked to everyone, I was in the hospital last week (sun – wed) with BPPV. My type was what the therapist coined: “Extreme Horizontal Vertigo”. Basically I had vertigo spells when I turned my head either left or right, and they would last for more than 2 minutes. If you’d like more information on BPPV, jump here.
So far, we haven’t gotten any re-occurence of the BPPV, however they say that it’s a 10% chance that I will have it flair up again this year.
On a more positive note, more info about my world. I have sent the Kindle back. It was too much money for not enough return. Don’t get me wrong. I’d recommend it to people, I thought it was a great device, however I guess it just wasn’t the right time to get an eReader for me.
On another positive note, we had our Insurance adjuster out to see the damage caused by the storm, we have gotten a check to fix the work and we should be getting that going pretty soon, however we may be displaced for a couple of weeks during renovations. Seems like most of the house will be replaced after this.
And on a closing note, I’ve started to do some modeling again, I’ll try to show some pics when I get them finalized.. nothing big.. nothing major.. just some “tests” to make sure I remember how to do this stuff.
