Billy Currington

I am pretty sure he said it best - " ...beer is good and people are crazy. "

 A couple of cold beers can bring people together. Let's start handing out beers and making new friends, swapping stories and life events, getting some perspective and input in to what makes us tick as humans.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. The longer my hair gets the more people have to say something about it.
2. Fucking Martell never having root beer shots or a grilled cheese in his life is absurd.
3. Blow me is a perfectly good retort when someone says something you don't want to continue having a conversation with.
4. That fucking rain on Saturday was insane.
5. I am not sure what beaches Governor Baker has been too since this shit started but no one is wearing masks on the beach.
6. I do not understand how people love the Eagles so much.  Take your hotel California and shove it up your ass.

8. Now that we are onto Phase 2.1 what are you looking most forward too? Where y'all gonna be eating at?

This is what I learned this weekend:

2. The Pig roast was a success.

11. Martell needs some Midol, he hurt his back mowing a lawn for the first time since high school.
12. When do they try to cancel July 4th?

Monday, May 18, 2020

Quick question

What the fuck are we doing? Like honestly?

The average age of death is 82.
There have been 74 deaths under the age of 50.

I get it, if you are immunocompromised, have a propensity for getting sick or just old this is not an ideal world we are living in for you. But millions of people on unemployment, small business' going under, and people having to use all their life's savings to keep their family afloat is not ideal either. 

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Little kids love to watch UFC, only when there is blood.
2. Congrats to Mario and Ash on a bouncy baby girl.
3. Mother nature is so fucking bombed - hot, cold, tornadoes, fuck it snow.
4. Is it a problem when you have to have a conversation about whether 36 beers is enough for 2 people?
5. Fuck your zoom meetings.
6. Doesn't look like I'll be getting a puppy any time soon.
7. Speaking of puppies Jeffery is looking for an English lab.
8. Looks like Florida is going to have it's best summer tourism ever.
9. Chrissy is alive and well.

10. Guess we are all waiting for 11 am to see if Governor Baker will let us out of our cages.
11. I don't know if I like pizza or burgers more. 
12. Taco bell still brings the heat. 
13. Why is it so difficult to find a baby hog for sale?
14. Broccoli slaw is better than cole slaw. Don't @ me!

Monday, May 11, 2020

So

Are we ever going to go back to anything resembling a normal life?

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. It felt great to be able to watch UFC live and be like a regular Saturday night.
2. Yo, sauage pepper and onion pizza from Rags is fire.
3. So basically this is Covid 19 season? Winter, spring, summer, fall and covid 19 shut down the economy season.
4. I dont think Kung Fu Dave is handling isolation well. He is down some conspiracy rabbit holes.
5. If you are looking for your Michael Jordan rookie card fix look .
6. I am really sick of these zoom meetings and seeing people sitting at home like donkeys and I am at work like an asshole.
7. Grub hub, Uber eats and all these delivery services seem to be killing it and gouging people. They charged $12.59 in fees and a fucking 25% tip on an $88.88 pizza order. Are we keeping small businesses afloat or lining these companies pockets?
8. Support your local breweries during this time. If they can't open their tap rooms, and bars aren't open to pour their kegs that is 2/3rds of their business. Buy some swag, get a 4 pack and do your part to help out.
9. When the $600 bonus runs out for unemployment and people passed on jobs while the country was reopening. It's gonna be like real life musical chairs.
10. Fucking fences are expensive as fuck.
11. One week until baby Long is here...so exciting.
12. People setting up secret haircuts from their barbers and hairstylest is where we are at now?!
13. My favorite part of covid 19 season is all the people snitching on other people. This person is not wearing a mask, these people are not social distancing, and (my favorite) people are visiting my neighbor.
14. The second favorite thing about covid 19 season - all the other genders out there are not being effected by death. It is just the females and males in the world.
15. One thing that's never going to happen again is blowing out of birthday cake candles, right? No more little kids spitting all over the cake?
16. How does Joe Martell not know who Len Bias was? Or that Ace of Cakes made Dave's wedding cake?

Stay safe out there guys and gals. If you aren't one of them you should be good.

7. The rum is done love.
8. When do the beaches open up?

10. 1 year olds are like Energizer bunnies.
11. What do you miss most during this?
12. Jeffrey out here with the Peleton. Kids gonna look fire.
13. The NFL draft was good television.
14. Julie Nickerson is alive, just had her 1 year anniversary with her Beau.

8. Wait, we are surprised that they are saying this didn't come from eating a bat but rather from a BL4 lab in Wuhan?
9. Oh yeah, I got into the baking game during this - pecan date bread. It's a bit dense but the flavor is good.
10. Guys, you can either just let all your hair go or you can shave it all down. There really isn't an in between.
11. So the Cape didn't want people flocking to their vacation homes now they want to re-open everything. Man this virus really fucking with people.
12. Code 8 was worth watching on Netflix.

Does anyone have any good suggestions of things to watch?

No money no money

I thought this was supposed to save us all money? I'm spending more than ever. Stocking up on beers, going to the supermarket to get food to make, and always at the Home Depot. Money schmoney.

This is what I learned on the west coast:
1. I'll take 82 degrees in February any time.

Wendy's breakfast

Well I gotta admit I was a little hesitant about this review. Not because I was nervous about trying something. No it's because the doors were closed and only the drive thru was open. I don't like to eat it my car. So I was just gonna say fuck it but then I saw the picture for the breakfast baconator and I was sucked right back in! And let me just say I'm glad I was. Holy shit, this was hands down the best fast food breakfast sandwich I ever had. Wendy's definitely learned from the trash they tried to roll out a few years back in their first attempt at breakfast. The menu looked like it had quite a few options. Couldn't really take it all in since I was in a rush with people behind me. But they had a chicken sandwich on a biscuit. A few egg sandwich choices with different bread options. I knew what I was ordering once I saw the picture but I still wanted to see what else they had. 6 strips of bacon, a sausage patty, and a fresh cracked egg, need I say more? Not sure of what type of roll it was on but it was decent. Didn't add anything to it but didn't take away either. Even the frozen potato wedges had good seasoning flavor. If you follow @Wendy's you know they went private last week and they have been bashing the competition ever since. If the other items on their breakfast menu are half as good as the baconator, we could see McDonald's being pushed to up there game!




KFC review

Gotta give credit where credit is due. When every other place is going keto friendly or trying to make meat out of plants. KFC says fuck that. Let's give the people what they want. And the fat kid in me loves that! They come out with a chicken sandwich where there are donuts for the bread. The donuts themselves are just ok. Nothing great but not horrible. They are a Krispy Kreme knockoff. But being warmed up helps and being drenched in a glaze sauce is key. This matched with the classic KFC breast just pairs well. People rave about chicken and waffles, and I can't say I blame them. The way the syrup just goes so well with the chicken. Well I gotta say the glaze goes even better. I give it a solid 7.1.


Chrissy coming through with the blazing food review.
