Random Crap – 4/11/12
You guys are wayWAY overdue for some random crap.
1) Today is the last day to enter for a nice rack. Yes. YOU can win a free nice rack
t-shirt. Goodness, that sounds gimmicky. I should sell old cars.
They come in both mens and women’s for the record.
I don’t know if it would be inappropriate for dudes to rock, but I’d high five a guy if I saw him wearing one.
I’m pretty excited for this one.
3) I effectively created the tri-wizard tournament of meat. I didn’t actually taste it because I’d already eaten dinner and wasn’t hungry (I needed to make lunch for today)… but my whole apartment smelled like heaven.
You see, between my rides from VA to NJ and from NJ to VA this past weekend, I listened to approximately 13 hours of Balanced Bites podcasts. Whether or not I liked the podcasts , (I did like them, but maybe not for that long) it got me wanting to eat all kinds of weird foods I don’t normally buy. One of them was liver.
Ick. Raw liver looks so gross!! It feels yucky/slimey too. I get the heebie jeebies just thinking about it.
So yes, as pictured above, my tri-meat contestants were locally scored bacon, beef liver, and ground beef. I diced up the liver and bacon as small as I could then mashed it in with the ground beef. Additionally, I added some random spices from my cabinet I cannot, for the life of me, remember. I think one of them was curry powder… it seemed like a good idea at the time.
The final product? Tri-meat burgers!
Yup, I saved the extra fat to cook in later. I really want to eat one of these now. Damn it. I just finished breakfast. Why didn’t I have one for breakfast? Shame on me.
4) I feel like there has been a recent uproar against the ‘strong is the new skinny’-esque memes. I’ve considered chiming in, in my little corner of the interwebz at Hey Joob but I’m pretty sure I won’t contribute anything that hasn’t already been said. Plus I kind of sort of did it in this post.
Instead, I’m going to link you to a bunch of articles and see what ya’ll think. I would love to see your thoughts in the comment section. Ready…set….debate!

Now I need to go shower and get ready for work. The lightbulb in my bathroom went out yesterday and it’s an awkward light that I can’t figure out how to get to the bulb. This means I need to shower in the dark until I call my landlord.
