**make sure you watch the video and click the link on the page I’ve linked to. Seriously.

I don’t know if I could eat that, but I’m willing to try. No one likes a whiner or a quitter. Time to bust a gut. 

 

Maybe to celebrate APRIL 5TH!!!!!!

Yesterday, JV brought the website This Is Why You’re Fat to my attention. It’s one of those awesome part freak show, part dare and part siren song corners of the world wide web, that successfully manages to ooze equal amounts of daring courage and inspiring self-loathing. It’s basically the kind of thing I can obsess over for hours. JV is a genius.

 

This Is Why Your Fat claims to be the place on the Information Superhighway were “dreams become heart attacks.” Certainly, many of the dishes featured on this site live up to this promise.

Take for example this 7 lbs. burrito:

3lbsburrito
Filled with potatoes, eggs, onions, and ham, then smothered in lots of cheese (processed, no doubt) on top and smothered in red chile sauce. I would sooooooooooooooooooooo eat an OJ sized breakfast burrito. 

Or, these Krispy Kreme Bacon Cheddar Cheeseburgers:

Pretty self explanitory… 

Or this doosey, The Double Bacon Hamburger Fatty Melt:

fattymeltMade from 3 grilled cheese and bacon sandwiches, used as bread. Then filled with two 4oz beef patties. Oh yeah, I’d let that fatty melt all over me!

I would gladly eat all of these things. Gladly. Even that donut one. I’m not kidding.

In fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve already (very willingly) consumed concoctions that would rival some of these examples of extreme gastronomy. Oh yes, I have eaten several MAXIWICHES!!!!!!

Two Ways to Get Yourself Going.

2006_3_211Since I lead a slovenly life, I often like to reward myself whenever I manage to do any little bit of work.

Today I managed to write a little bit (though, not nearly enough) and thought that I deserved a little treat. So I made myself a nice drink. 

This would, I reasoned, provide a necessary recompense for my little labours and encourage me to continue working long into the night (I’ll keep you posted on this front…). I opted for a Perfect Manhattan— since I was out of Champers and couldn’t make my favourite, a French 75.

I strongly recommend imbibing one (or both) of these concoctions to help get you over the week-day-work-day-blahs. Both are delicious, both are real pick-me-ups, and both can easily be made ahead of time and kept in a flask or pitcher so that they can be enjoyed at (or under) your desk. However, please be sure to pour fresh champagne into your French 75 base. 

The Perfect Manhattan was either invented at a bar on Broadway in the 1860s or at the Manhattan Club in NYC in the 1870s (via Wikipedia.) and it differs from a regular-ass Manhattan through the addition of dry vermouth to the standard whiskey and sweet vermouth recipe. It tastes crisper and cleaner that a standard Manhattan, which can sometimes feel a little too heavy and sweet. It’s a great drink to have in the early evening as you’re finishing up some work, or after a nice dinner.
