September 16, 2009

- I’m very happy that Jordan won Big Brother, but I’m not going to devote an entire post to it. To be fair, she really didn’t do much in the game, but she won at the final HoH when it mattered the most, and made the right decision on who to take to the final. I’m kind of bummed that Natalie won second place, and the $50,000 prize, but it’s better than her winning the half-million. I didn’t like the format of the finale, with the jumbled mess of everything that they had to do…it just looked like everyone was confused at all times. The pre-planned jury questions were ridiculous, and it changed the show that they weren’t able to speak freely as they questioned the final two, as they had been able to do in previous years. I wanted Natalie to have to deal with the fact that her “allies” couldn’t stand her anymore. Oh well, Congratulations Jordan…it’s tough to be upset about a feel-good story winning the grand prize.
- It’s been one month since I’ve had a Coke now. To be fair, I have had a Coke Froster from Mac’s after Lucas and I went for a nice long walk the other night…but I don’t think it counts.

- I’m already wearing out my new Jet album. Now the new Muse album came out yesterday—and it’s great!—and a new Weezer album next month, and the Foo Fighters Greatest Hits in November. Throw in the movie release of Where the Wild Things are next month (it’s only one month away!), and it’s shaping up to be an exciting fall. If you haven’t seen the amazing trailer for Where The Wild Things Are, check out my March 30th post. And how awesome is the cover of the new Weezer album?
- I was flipping around on TV the other day, and I came across Criss Angel’s show. I’m sorry, I’ve seen it before, and it’s just all so ridiculous. If you’re watching this show and actually believing that these ‘illusions’ are taking place in front of real people, I’m afraid I have very little hope for you. There is no way that these idiotic tricks are done without camera trickery and editing, and there is about a one hundred percent chance that anyone who is participating in ‘the trick’ or is one of the spectators…are all paid actors. It is absolutely idiotic to think anything otherwise. This is why this moron doesn’t do a live show, because he can’t do his “illusions” without the camera or the paid responses. And don’t even try to tell me that his show in Las Vegas, Believe, qualifies…because even though he stars in it, he doesn’t do magic! It’s all theatrics with Cirque Du Soleil. And do you know why he doesn’t do live magic? Because he can’t!

- I’ve mentioned a number of times on the blog here, how I love Swiss Chalet. Let’s be honest…who in their right mind doesn’t? I had dinner the other night at Swiss Chalet with my friend Norm, and when he plopped a giant pile of ketchup on his plate for his fries, I asked why he would choose ketchup over the always-delightful Chalet sauce. Norm proceeds to tell me that he likes them mixed together…so much so that he sometimes POURS THE KETCHUP IN THE CHALET SAUCE. (I’ll pause for you to get past the involuntary gagging and partial vomiting that most of you are experiencing right now.) Now, I have to ask, why on earth would you mix these 2 things together? I actually asked him later in the week, and his response was “I really enjoy the ketchup and chalet sauce as it swirls together forming a heavenly blend of two great tastes.” Yes…he actually said that. First of all, you can’t group ketchup and Chalet Sauce together as both being ‘great tastes’…you just can’t. Second of all…never mind…I can’t even talk about this anymore, it’s just so disgusting.

Meagan said...

Dev (Devena) said...

mmmm.....Swiss Chalet...I love Swiss Chalet - thanks for putting that in my head when I can't leave work to get it....now I have to think of it all day and have it for supper; ketchup is not an option with the dipping sauce....Cheers.

Rob said...

i hate dogs

Sean said...

THANK YOU Meagan and Devena for confirming the insanity of the Ketchup-Chalet Sauce combo...I'm still gagging.

galileocan said...

OK...yep...I'm the guy who has been much maligned on this blog, due to my wonderful discovery of how good ketchup and Chalet Sauce taste when mixed together. Did anyone yell at the guy when he dipped his chocolate in peanut butter creating the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup? Like..NO. Listen....thousands of people pan fry liver and onions every day. Although it makes me and the cat want to hork up a few furballs, that doesn't make it WRONG. It's just a taste preference. Before you "Condiment Cops" or "Sauce Snobs" make your judgements, why not try my concoction, the next time you're at The Chalet. If you end up not liking it......well......you can kiss my royal ass. :-D

Sean said...

For the record...Reese's Ketchup and Chalet Sauce Cups would be a HORRIBLE seller.

Just sayin'...

galileocan said...

That's fine. Have it your way. Apparently there's some guy named Sammy who will be more than happy to have dinner with me sometime...see this link, Paragraph2. Thank you very much Sammy. http://www.redflagdeals.com/forums/showpost.php?s=14931ca5411f3fbcff806d6e038e23a7&p=1060841&postcount=7

Sean said...

Good god...how hard did you have to search to find ONE guy who posted FIVE YEARS AGO that he likes ketchup in his Chalet Sauce? Sammy could be dead now for all you know.

Weak.

And "Have it your way" is Burger King, not Swiss Chalet.

Sean said...

And thank you for specifying that it was in paragraph 2. I never would have found it otherwise. Whew! :)

galileocan said...

And thank YOU for specifying that "Have it Your Way" is Burger King. Never would have figured that one out. Phew! More weak. As if Sammy was the only one who supports me. Actually the STAFF of Swiss Chalet are on my side as well. See the post from Oct. 4th

Thanks Evelyn.

Ok Norm, let's be real, my friend...

You've spent all night searching online to back up your sick habit...and you've come up with 2 people in the last 5 years who agree with you.

I had 2 people in 3 hours this morning agree that it's disgusting.

Keep trying, but you're flailing...and your water wings will soon be out of air.

:)

Laura said...

Sean said...

Norm, please stop posting under fake names.

:)

Just Kidding. Laura, you need to meet Norm.

galileocan said...

Laura...I don't who you are, but I know that you're a girl with amazing taste.
