Catch Up and Food Fun

October 26, 2009 Leave a comment

First I need to make a confession: I Nathan M. Landry am completely awful at completing the Fitness Friday challenge. I’ll keep trying, I won’t give up completely…but I’m awful at it.  It isn’t that I’m lazy, I just have such a random schedule that I don’t have a reliable good time to do it… unless I just woke up early, but that’s crazy talk.

Unfortunately, because I’ve been so ashamed of myself for not doing fitness friday, I haven’t posted anything else and believe me there has been a lot to post.  With that said we’ll get right to it.

Firstly, the Boy Scouts is going good. I’m beginning to get the basics down. It is definitely keeping me busy. 

Next, I recently co-signed a lease for a condo. We have the keys, my roomie is already moved in, I’ll be moving in at the beginning of the month. It’s pretty exciting, even more exciting is the fact that my roommate has a number of swords I get to play with, including but not limited to, a Braveheart sword! This is a legitimate 4 or so foot long sword, it’s so large in fact that you can’t fully swing it without hitting the ceiling.

I won’t be moving in until november because I’m currently house sitting for a couple.  The house is huge, they have a hot tub (that is broken unfortunately) a trash compactor, a tree growing inside the house, two dogs that apparently hate it when I type because they keep stepping on my hand, and a doll that is too frightening for words:

I haunt Nathans dreams when he sleeps.

"I haunt Nathan's dreams when he sleeps."

Other than the doll and other awkward creepy things in the basement it’s fun, and did I mention the T.V. is massive?

The final thing I’m going to touch on in this blog is a plug for the most amazing show that everyone else probably already knows about:

Awesomeness in video form

"Awesomeness in video form"

In case you are like me and haven’t ever heard of Man Vs. Food, let me give you the low down:

Adam Richman, a food enthusiast, tours the country looking for “Americas greatest ‘pig-out’ spots.” He finds different challenges such as one the challenge home to Denver where if you can eat a…


7lb Breakfast Burrito!!!
7lb Breakfast Burrito!!!


He then takes on the challenge and samples other hot food spots. Some of the things he’s eaten so far are: 

  • a slice of pizza the size of a baby
  • a 3.5 lb cinnamon roll the size of a cake
  • a burger even larger than a red top burger (which is really big)
  • possibly the worlds hottest ramen noodle soup
  • hot wings drenched in sauce made from Habanero peppers
  • a burger featuring ghost peppers (something like 5x hotter than Habanero peppers)

I would highly recommend this show, and believe me, I hope one day to conquer the burrito mentioned above.

Until next time,

I’m Nathan and You Stay Classy World Wide Web.


The Happidy Haps (A.K.A. – What Is Happening)

Although I’m fairly certain most anyone reading this knows me personally, unless I become famous over night, or it’s actually months from now and my blog has gained a massive following and someone is going back through the archives to see where it all started… I digress… Although I am fairly certain most anyone reading this knows me personally, I feel like I should put an update on here of my life.  After all isn’t that what a blog is? I believe it is derived from the roots “b” and “log.”  “b” Of course being short for “what be happening” and “log” being a word referring to a written account of something. Thus a “blog” is really a “written account of what be happening.”

And now that I’ve explained all that I’ll write an account of what be happening.

First off some quick blog business: Fitness Friday is going to be pushed to saturday…but only this week.  This is because I am going to do day 2 of my 3 day workout after I’m done typing this, then I’ll do day 3 saturday so I can talk about my first completed week of studliness.  Also if I posted it on Friday it would be like two posts in one day which is madness.

Now on to my life:

I have started working as a District Executive for the Pike’s Peak Council Boy Scouts of America.  Basically I work with volunteers, and recruit kids, and raise funds for the Boy Scouts.  Here are some of the high points and low points of the job:

High Points

  • I get to interact with a lot of different people
  • I get official business cards
  • I get to work with an organization I believe in
  • I get an awesome Boy Scouts uniform
  • I can go in late sometimes
  • I have sweet popcorn hook-ups


  • The hours are a little weird
  • Dave calls me a Brownie

Over all though it seems like it’ll be a great job.  I’ve only been at it for a week but I’ve learned a lot and look forward to learning and doing more.

Also a friend of mine and I are looking at places to live, the future home of Mr. & Mr. Nathan and Joe…we’ll be in separate rooms of course.  It’s been interesting, I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t shed a few tears over the process.  Not a whole lot to tell there, we may be closing in on an option but no one knows for sure…unless you are someone from the future reading the archives then you probably know exactly how the whole situation pans out… If only I knew now what you will know then.

Those are the two biggest developments in my life right now but as an added bonus I’m going to give you a few things to mull over, I’ll call them “things I’m digging.”

Things Nathan Is ‘Digging’ (aka – Things Nathan is Enjoying/ A Fan Of)

  • This Season of How I Met Your Mother
  • The Season Premier and the Wedding Episode of The Office (the 2 episodes in between were let-downs)
  • The New David Crowder *Band CD
  • This Site
  • More specifically, this product on that site:


Seriously I want a pair of these. I wonder if they come in my size.

  • My Gal – this is where you can all say “awwwwwe” and I can earn me some brownie points!
  • Treasure Island, that’s right I’m reading it, I found an old school copy at Goodwill for cheap and it’s awesome

That’s all for tonight I hope you found this “written account of what be happening” interesting.  I trust the many bullet points I used were a good way to disseminate information.

Have a wonderful morning/day/evening (please use whichever is applicable to you in reference to the time you are reading this)
