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

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.
