I Eat Buzzard Eggs!

September 22, 2011

The autumn season has to be one of the best times for a blogger. There is so much to write about: the holidays, weather changes, annoying kids packing the public transportation system, and the list goes on and on. It obviously is my favorite season. Just like Easter, a big reason is the reappearance of the chocolate eggs. I love the Cadbury bunny…oh wait, these eggs are different. This are Halloween eggs!

Yummy Babies

Russell Stover stole the egg idea from Cadbury but put their own spin on it. The inside is not eggactly the same as Cadbury eggs either. It has a chocolately or marshmallow inside, rather than the yellow inside the easter egg. (more…)

Spooky Stories: Halloween is Coming! (via Write, Read, Watch)

September 18, 2011

Sounds promising and I may even write a story during the month for the blog.

Spooky Stories: Halloween is Coming! So this week, all those changes I talked about are going to be in effect. Also, I've created a Facebook fan page, which I would like to get people to start following and enjoying so that we can talk and get chatting together about writing. Finally, during the month of October, because I love Halloween, I will write some short stories to Scare Your Pants Off.  It will probably be stories involving zombies, vampires, hobgoblins, werewolves, trolls, … Read More

Crappy Meal!

September 15, 2011

My son is a very picky eater, but like most kids, he loves McDonalds. Since he eats so little, he gets fatty food until his appetite can stabilize sometime in the future. What a sweet deal this is because he gets to eat those french fries that he loves and prefers them more than anything else. Sometimes I go to the drive thru only for him. For the record, he does eat healthy foods, but the fast food actually balances his diet. What a lucky kid.

Anyway, so the other day I’m in the usual drive thru ordering the usual Happy Meal with McNuggets, but this time is different. When I fish out the fries, I get this:

Fries

What the hell? What is this? Have I grown to giant size without realizing it? I go back in the bag and I pull this out:

apple slices

Apple slices? Are they serious? For a moment I thought I got the wrong order. However, I remember watching a news report about McDonalds trying to make their Happy Meals healthier for kids. I assume this BS started because of the lawsuit against McDonalds for making someone fat (duh!), and because of that movie, “Super Size Me.” Really.

What really grinds my gears is that people forget that this business is McDonalds, not Whole Foods. Why the hell are people looking for healthy food at McDonalds? You go to the Golden Arches for McNuggets or the Big Mac. Maybe a salad. Maybe.drink

What’s worse is that most people interviewed were happy for the change. These people have bigger problems if they are bringing their kids to McDonalds for healthy meals. Go home and freaking cook something. Stop being lazy. Even if both parents work, time can be set aside to prepare dinners.

I don’t eat at McDonalds often because it’s bad for me. However, I don’t expect McDonalds or any other fast food chain to change their menu because I think some choices are bad. If I shout louder than the majority, does that mean I can ruin it for everyone else? What kind of douchebag would that make me?

A big one.
