Dunkin' Donuts Truck

Dunkin' Donuts Truck, originally uploaded by macfixer.

I shot this while gassing up my car one morning on the way to work.

It's no Oscar Meyer weinermobile, but the 'box-of-donuts-and-an-iced-coffee' delivery truck is mighty sweet.


I don't have a lot of free time this weekend, but if you wander over to "Five Things" you'll notice 2 new posts.

St. Patrick's Day Parade

Columbus Day Parade, originally uploaded by macfixer.

Look at this nightmare of a picture: The tuba (actually a Sousaphone, but does that make me look any less of a total dweeb?), the mullet, the total lack of interest in the girl behind me. No wonder I ended up in a career with computers!

edit: Found out it was St. Patrick's Day 1988.

Special Shoutout...

This goes out to my good buddy Mac over at "Here I Stand..." (which you should totally check out). Like some crazy Kung-Fu movie of my youth, this is "South Park" vs. "The Simpsons" vs. "Family Guy" -- and they all get equally skewered. Friggin' sweet.

Anything For Money

So, in true "Office Space" tradition, my boss is having me come into work next Sunday. Unlike most weekend trips to work, I am actually going to get paid overtime for this one.

To paraphrase an old punchline, "Now that we've established what kind of guy you are, we're working on the price..."

What The Hell Am I Eating: Lay's Crab Spice Seasoning Potato Chips

Crab Spice, originally uploaded by macfixer.

So, I was in the mood for a bag of potato chips on the way home from work (my commute is quite a long drive, I’m told ☺), and so I stop at the local 7-Eleven for something… I’m not sure what, yet, but I want potato chips.

Passing by the usual flavors, I decide I'm in the mood for something different. So I grab what appears to be the solitary bag of Lay’s “Crab Spice Seasoning” Potato Chips. I’m not sure if the fact that there was just one bag meant that there was some sort of run on this flavor, or if there was little faith from the delivery person.

I grab a bottle of Gatorade’s Propel grape to wash it down with and cannot wait to scurry to my car and try this stuff. I mean, come on… it’s got a frickin’ crab on the bag!

I open the bag and am treated to the site of a slightly reddish orange colored chip. Not quite the color I was expecting (then again, what color would you use for crab flavor?). The taste was more “Old Bay” than, say, “by the Bay”, but they were quite good.

Here’s the thing. Old Bay seasoning does not taste like crab. Old Bay is sometimes used to season steamed crabs, so I guess that’s where they get the idea. Why didn’t Lay’s just license the spice blend? Because Herr’s already beat them to it.

Was it good? Would I do it again? Maybe. If I wanted a mouthful of Old Bay spice, I’d grab my bottle of Old Bay on the spice rack at home.

My McKid rating: OK
OK Kid

I thought he looked kind of metal, but apparently all he thrashes to is "Itsy-Bitsy Spider" -- how tame.

The Gang, Christmas 2001

The Gang, Christmas 2001, originally uploaded by macfixer.

This is a picture of my whole extending family, circa 2001. The only person you can't see is Byron, who is taking the picture.

I miss the days when my grandma was a little more together. My poor dad has to take care of her on a daily basis.

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for...

Well, I know I've mentioned it before (way back in April), but I needed to get some stuff together on my end... Today, I'm available at one easy-to-remember address. I bought the domain back when I was unemployed, thinking it would make a cool company name. It was inspired by a shirt I had bought for my friend's wedding. My wife asked me to describe the color, and I told her 'Deep Mustard'. Sure enough, the domain was available, so I snatched it up.

From there, you can access this blog, Five Things (my other blog), my Twitter 'tweets', and my Flickr pictures.

More to come. Stay tuned.
