fried twinkie

I confess that I was defeated by this monstrosity, encountered at the Santa Cruz boardwalk in San Francisco.

    You wander around enough county fairs, and you will find that just about every thing you can find in a 7-11 will be deep fried.

    is it wrong that this idea actually appeals to some primal part of my psyche? I live in wisconsin, actually, so i think i have a religious obligation to seek out more at the next fair – in the spirit of scientific exploration, of course. and a fair degree of masochism, but that’s why I bought a Wii Fit.

    So… I guess a deep fried Snickers bar would be pushing your envelope?
    My county fair just opened today. Think I’ll have to take a wander through it next week. Never know what new and amazing concoction I might find!

the NFL, concussions, and domestic abuse #WhyIStayed #WhyILeft
A lot of my friends who aren't into football have remarked upon my newfound interest in football as being somewhat out-of-character (true, at first glance, but i'll address that later) and also critiqued the sport for all its attendant social problems. Of those, the two main ones are domestic abuse

13 years after 9-11
I honestly don't have much left to say that I have not said already. But it is worth at least remarking on this, the anniversary of the attacks, that the global challenges facing the world today have almost nothing to do with terrorism or Islamic fanaticism.
