People actually pay to eat this ...

OK, some of this is just vile.

Cuitlacoche, or corn kernels infected with black spores.

Bun Dae Ki, or silkwork pupae. Yum-O!

Potted Meat, the perennial favorite.

Balut, or Cambodian embryonic duck. Served in the shell for maximum presentation quality.

I Don't Want To Watch, But I Can't Stop Looking

This is one of the strangest things I've ever seen on the web.

I don't know what to say about it, other than it involves paddles, a cat, and mutual consent.

Princesses on Ice

No, I'm not talking about Ohio State's hockey team although I can understand if you thought I was...

I, LM, and L-dawg are off to Nationwide Arena tonight to see Disney's Princesses On Ice. Lauren is a lot more excited about it than I am. At least we have Club level seats, so it won't be too far to get a beer where I'm sure I'll meet lots of the other dads who are at this show. I hope they have beer. Please let there be beer.

It was either this show or Elmo Live! I opted for what I'm hoping will cause the least amount of homicidal and/or suicidal ideation. What I won't do for love.

I hereby take the NO POLITICS ON SPORTSLINE vow..

It's that time again, when we United States citizens exercise our right to self-determination by voting for the people who will represent our interests in government. The Great Experiment continues...

...but not on this board, not by me.

I appreciate political thought, discourse, and commentary (particularly if it's partisan and heated), but for me this is not the place for it.

THEREFORE, this is the first, last, and only mention I am going to make of any politically related topic on these boards. I'm not going to post on threads that are primarily political, and if someone commits a threadjacking I'll leave and move on.

I can get politics and news analysis anywhere. Here, I want to read about sports, post about sports, and learn more about what other people think about sports.

And of course random weirdness and fun, trivial topics. Just no politics for me here.

Weird Parent Conversations, part 2

LM: Honey, come here!! Check this out!!

Me: What?

LM: Look at the size of the booger I pulled out of her nose!

Me: Whoa! That's like a grape!

Lauren: No! That's MY boogers! Waaaaa!

LM: Until you're eighteen, they're MINE, and I'll take 'em whenever I want.

Me: That's right, listen to your mother.

Without wireless, I couldn't... sitting in the throne room taking care of "business" while taking part in a conference call for work (wireless VoIP headset, softphone) and writing this blog entry.

Life is good.

I broke into the Top 1K?!? CBS is nuts...

After hovering at 98 rep for months, all in one day I broke the 99 barrier and Top 1K all in the same shot. What gives? Laurensmama is the sports nut in the family, most of what I know I learned from her. Plus most of my posts are (any admins looking now?) non-sports related.

Must be that slobbery love letter I sent to Dennis Dodd...

Some of the worst words you can hear, Part 1

"Honey, you need to get the plunger."

You know nothing pleasant is going to follow.

**UPDATE 8:08pm** And nothing did.
