Miscellaneous Miscellany Monday: 6/13/2011
1. Just a little heads up: I’m going to be sporadic with blog post this week since, you know, Lisa and I will be starting Operation Co-Habitaton in a few days. I started packing up my apartment over the weekend, which as any guy knows is code for “my girlfriend is forcing me to throw away stuff.”
T-Shirts – gone.
Tupperware – see ya.
Vintage Star Wars poster – over my cold, dead body. Non-negotiable. It’s staying.
While we’ve had to compromise on a few things, all in all, things have been going fairly smoothly. I get to keep my baseball cards, and she gets to keep her Sex and the City dvd collection. It’s a win-win.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the weather is going to be cooperative this week, but looking at the extended forecast for Boston, it doesn’t look promising. Oh well, we’ll get it done nonetheless. Wish me luck!
2. An avid reader (Juliet) of my blog sent me THIS link a week or two ago, and I had been meaning to post it at some point, and I figured today would be as good a day as any. Anyone looking for a good LOL this morning, should definitely click on it (sorry, I couldn’t embed the video).
3. HERE’s an interesting article from the New York Times on the U.S.D.A’s decision to switch the tradtional Food Guide Pyramid into a more relatable dinner plate. Cool, I get it….it’s definitely a step in the right direction, and I really like that the objective is to cover half your plate with fruits abd veggies.
But, in the grand scheme of things, I still have to question their actual guidelines. I mean, corn is still considered a vegetable. Really?
Is this going to be easier to follow? Tough to say. I think it would be in our best interest to follow this guideline instead:
Short. Simple. And to the point. You’d have to be a complete moron not to understand it.
4. And lastly, can someone please tell me whether or not this can be considered a form of child abuse?
I don’t even know where to begin with this one. I always love it when someone posts a video like this, and automatically “disables” comments. That there should tell you that you shouldn’t be posting it in the first place.
