Fake it, don’t make it : Brekkie of Champions!

I stumbled onto a brilliant breakfast by being almost out of Grape Nuts.  So, here it is:

1/2 Grape Nuts
1/2 Kashi Cinnamon Harvest Cereal
1 small bananna sliced
soy milk

Do it up!  DEEEEE-LISH.

Oh Messy Life…the annoyance factor…

Certain things really get to me.  Some are understandable, so less so.  I realize that I’m much less of a crank about most things now than in the past, so that’s good, but over the last few days I’ve been seemingly pelted by things from local and national media that have annoyed me…a lot.

It started with seeing a video for the band All American Rejects the other day in which the drummer is wearing a Filth shirt.  I remember seeing that and being really put off by it a year or more ago.  Maybe I’m just completely wrong, but I am hard pressed to find a band that fits LESS with the alterna-video culture than Filth.  Filth was the band, remember, that tossed razor blades out into the crowd at a show at Gilman.  Seeing that video always rubs me wrong.

Much, MUCH more than that, however, was Good Morning America this morning.  Here is a link to the story I’m refering to:


This story was such a pile of crap.  This guy went from eating 5,000 calories a day to eating 1,400 a day, and he did it at McDonald’s.  Over the last 6 months this guy lost 86 pounds.  They showed his vanity plates on his car that used to say “OLDNFAT”” and now his new one that says “MCFIT”.  There was NO mention of ANY exercise at all…simply diet changes.  The article (and the story on the program) made a point of saying how this “flies in the face” of Spurlock’s “Supersize Me.”  NO IT DOES NOT.  This guy is eating salads and apples.  Spurlock was eating burgers and supersized fries.  It is nowhere near the same thing. 

This kind of dodgy reporting is simply irresponsible.  It pisses me off.
