Fair Food Fundamentals

Every year My family and I go the North Carolina State Fair about 5 or 6 times... yeah it's that big of a deal. The main reason is all the fantastic food. My list is as follows:

- deep fried snickers bar.
- cattleman's association steak sandwich.
- corn on the cob.
- turkey leg (must be eaten first in order to achieve maximum consumption).
- chocolate covered strawberries (at least 4 times... a visit).
- NC State ice cream.
- funnel cake (although I don't really like these, they are a classic).
- Al's fries (con mucho vinagre).
- party in a pita (there is no more of an explanation).
- milk (so simple, so necessary).
- 1lb of candy from the candy castle.

P.s. thank you Raz Darnell for the idea :)

Commercials That Drive me Nuts

I watch way too much TV... and although I have a DVR, I a lot of time forget to fast forward and end up suffering through the commericals anyway. So here are some particularly annoying ones that have been playing lately... well not really that lately.

WHY does the announcer person in this commercial have a fake Russian (or the general area of the world) accent??! How is that "manly" or "boy-ey"?... whatever is supposed to attract boys. What do squinkies even do? Apparently stick to massive amounts of hair gel, and... be squishy? I don't UNDERSTANDDDD.

This one drives me (you're gonna love my) nuts in a GOOD way. "Stop having a boring tuna stop having a boring life"... regular tuna = your whole life is boring... get with it people. "Fettucini, linguini, martini, bikini" because those last two are nothing without some good grated cheese. "We're gonna make America skinny again one slap at a time"... sounds brutal but hey, when you have an opportunity like this why wouldn't you ask about the foldable cutting board??

These are the worst commercials ever. These are the ones that make me remember that I'm not fast-forwarding. But once I realize that I feel like I can't fast forward because it's even more cruel to the animals. It's a terrible cycle. I understand that commercials like this are supposed to evoke emotion and junk. And maybe in any normal person it would but (as I have been told) I am a stone cold robot and the only emotion coming out of me is hatred for the guilt they are making me feel. But, I pride myself in the fact that I have never succumb to these terrible commercials

For your enjoyment:


Okay just one more I swear:

Alright alright! I'm done!

My TV is Back

School has been back in session for probably about 3 weeks-ish, and while the homework started flowing and we got our laptops back it did start feel like school. But now it feels completely familiar because all my TV is back. Yeah, the stuff I think about all day long instead of Lincoln, functions, and step changes. It makes fall seem real, even though it's still 90 million degrees outside, I like to pretend cool weather will come eventually even though freezing cold just blasts us sometime mid-November.My TV shows are what keep me going, having a new one to watch almost every night is what keeps me going during the day and contemplating the one from the night before keeps me awake. I really probably wouldn't be passing school in general if it weren't for television. That's a bit backwards but it works.

Parenthood starts tomorrow, Survivor premieres Wednesday, and eventually Lie to Me, House, The Amazing Race, The Big Bang Theory, and Dancing With the Stars (my viewage of this particular show solely depends on the cast) will come back. I can't wait!! :D
