[VIDEO] The Place, NYC: The WORST Restaurant Advertisement Ever Made

article-2134039-12BB9BE4000005DC-337_634x356

While I hate to bash anyone who is trying to promote their business and way of providing income for themselves, I can’t even lie about  this advertisement being bad. I have no idea whether the food is good, and to be quite honest, I don’t care. This video ad seems like five minutes of a very bad movie that was intended to be “like” a documentary. Not to mention, the lead (or the male customer who comes in with his wife) is CLEARLY gay. Sure, it seems like a great place; But it was too hard to even think about whether I wanted to go here when all I cared about is asking these people what they were thinking when they agreed to take part.

“blueberries……..licorice”

That shit cracks me up, every time. I’m assuming that the intent of this video was to be so awful and funny that it went viral. And if that is the case, this was a genius marketing technique. Either way, great sketch ha.

[VIDEO] Kinect Grocery Cart: Shopping Made Easy

IP-shoppingcart

Whether you know this or not, I am a huge fan of technology. Some people may fear that technology makes us lazy, less socially available, as well as a variety of other issues. While I do agree that some technology has made it easier for us to be lazy and or avoid human interaction, I think it’s up to us to not just accept that and find ways to interact socially as well as not submit to laziness.

Another reason I like the technological advances that are being made is because it broadens our horizons and advances us as a race. If technology is the basis for most everything, then most everybody is going to have to have at least some understanding of how these devices and programs work. Someone who may not have cared before, may have to now and will have to use parts of the brain they didn’t care to use prior. Also, as the population continues to grow, making simple tasks more convenient is going to be helpful when in crowded places that would normally have lines. When you’re in a small town, lines are something that move quickly, but in a place like Los Angeles, New York, and Japan… lines are horrendous. For this reason, I think this way of shopping is genius:

(And just because things don’t work 100% of the time doesn’t mean they’ve failed, it means that they need improvements… as do most things)

[VIDEO] Bella The Dog Eats Standing Up…Take A Look

YouTube -

This is our cute dog Bella. She was diagnosed with congenital megaesophagus soon after we found her at 4 months old. Megaesophagus means that her esophagus is enlarged and lacks the muscle mobility to swallow food while horizontal. This is her “Baileys Chair,” which she needs sit in while eating and for 10 minutes after she eats. She eats soft dog food with a little water mixed in. She is now seven months old and doing great!

Thursday 4Play! Theme: Roommates

As we all know, living with roommates is a pain in the ass. Hell, living with anyone is a pain in the ass. These people have taken it upon themselves to use wit and written communication to avoid a ridiculous fight about simple matters.

Don’t Have Sex With People Who Have Different Allergies Than You…

When you start thinking about sex and who you plan on screwing that night, whether a one-night stand or good friend, you might want to take their allergies into consideration. And if you have allergies, don’t have one night stands or let your significant other know about them, because it is possible that you could die if you don’t take such measures. In fact, you could still die, so maybe just stick with people with similar allergies, or at least someone who won’t eat them due to the fact that they could KILL you.

A young woman, 20, and her boyfriend has planned on getting romantic, after he had a handful of brazilian nuts. She explained her extreme allergy to nuts and asked him to take necessary precautions before they hooked up.

The man brushed his teeth, rinsed his mouth out, washed his hands and scrubbed under his fingernails, according to science-technology website io9.

But what happened next has alerted scientists to the fact that the nut proteins can get into the seminal fluid.

The doctors at St Helier hospital in Carshalton, Surrey, had believed this was a normally contracted reaction to kissing or skin touching, until they were told about the extreme precautions that were taken, and have now determined that it can travel through sweat or saliva.

It is the first recorded case of an allergic reaction to Brazil nuts through intercourse.

To be absolutely certain, doctors brought the man back in and took two semen samples – one before, and one four hours after eating Brazil nuts.

They then performed a test on the girl, where they give a small injection with a needle covered in semen underneath the skin.

The tests proved that this nut did not break down during digestions, and were therefore able to travel through the immune system. Luckily the girl is alright, but the couple has been broken up. He probably realized that every time he ate nuts he’d have a hospital bill to pay for and she just wasn’t worth that kind of money.

Being a Failure

A nice beef stew for dinner.

So I was doing well on the Master Cleanse, up until last night. I came home to a friend of mine, Kevin, who was cooking some AMAZING food. It smelled delicious, looked delicious, and I wanted more than anything to take a bite. So I did. First I started off with trying a carrot to see how my stomach reacted, but then  I just dove right in. There was a salad with mozzarella balls soaked in flavors, baby tomatoes and shrimp. Next there was a delicious sausage with pineapple, mushrooms and onions. And I don’t even know how to describe the cheesy potatoes, but they were delectable. He also had a cheesecake as dessert with ice cream and fruit that had been soaked in raspberry Vodka for days. Ultimately, I could not resist. I portioned myself and only took 2 sips of wine the entire evening.

Today I’ve decided to not go right into eating regularly, so I’m having Orange Juice diluted with water. Later tonight I play to make a soup with cabbage, squash, onions, carrots, zucchini, etc. Mmmm.

I’m glad it’s Friday and I can finally put some substance in my body. Sure, i didn’t make it the full length of time that I attempted, but I did make it a good 3 days. Although, not great, I still feel like I did a good job and I don’t plan on move hastily back into my normal eating patterns. Labor Day weekend, aka 3 day weekend and I am so excited :)

Day 3: The Master Cleanse

The Master Cleanse

I’ve made it two full days on the Master Cleanse thus far. This morning, I woke up though, and realized that I only had enough maple syrup to make 8 oz glasses of me “lemonade”. This isn’t a huge deal seeing as I can go to the store and buy more, but the idea of going into a building full of food seems quite difficult at this point ha.

Quite honestly though, last night was probably the most difficult night yet. A few of my friends and I went to Bingo at Hamburger Mary’s and EVERYONE there was ordering food and drinks like no other. Seeing drinks coming and going, plates filled then empty was like pure torture. I was also exhausted, but thankfully the entertainment was amazing and I couldn’t be stopped from having a good time :)In fact, last night I happened to win a game of bingo and was able to do my prat falls in front of the entire Flipping Out cast, Sara Rue and the rest of the crowd at bingo. I always get a kick out of making my friends and everyone else laugh at my embarrassment, so that was pretty awesome. All around a good night, with good people :)

I’m doing pretty good so far today, but just wondering how long I’ll be able to last. My friend is coming over tonight to cook us dinner, and I want so badly to be able to enjoy it! Hopefully my will power will keep me strong enough to resist (although I’m doubting it at this point).

The Superbowl

I find it incredibly entertaining how many posts I saw today on Twitter, Facebook, etc in regards to the superbowl. It’s not so much the fact that people are interested that was so entertaining, but rather the idea that it seems that the amount of people who care, greatly heightened the day after. Along with that, they alllll seem to have been rooting for The Saints, who ironically, won.

I mean, half these girls who are acting like huge fans have never watched a day of football in their lives, the Superbowl included. Watching some of the commercials, the halftime show, or getting drunk with “the guys” does not, let me repeat, DOES NOT give you the right to claim you WATCHED the Superbowl. And why do you care to post about something that you don’t even care about? Does it make you look cooler, because if this is so, I have severely hurt my chances of being considered cool.

Why not talk about how delicious the food was or how amazing those margaritas tasted on a beautiful Sunday afternoon? The things all of us DID actually enjoy? No. Instead you comment on how great “your team” did, but when I turn around and asked the score, you simply couldn’t remember.

SO PROUD OF THE SAINTS FOR WINNING THE SUPERBOWL!! WHOOOO!
