A running rant about bad television, crappy products, horrible service, mindless politics, corporate and government ineptitude, moronic media, marketing overload, public idiocy, stupid entertainment, etc. Here's what's annoying me today:

Far from "Fantastic"


This is some disgusting shit. We're not big into packaged foods, but somewhere along the line someone grabbed this from the health food aisle at the supermarket: Fantastic Foods Vegetarian Pad Thai. After a weekend of insanity, bailing out our flooded cellar etc., and home alone for dinner, it was just the kind of night to reach for some prepackaged meal, and shove it in the microwave. Or in this case drop the plastic container in a pot of boiling water for three minutes. Yuk. What shit. Little squares of something that was supposed to be tofu, I guess, but tasted like leather. About 12 noodles with no taste. Three bites and into the trash.

I would have been much better off, eating the three-week old real Pad Thai leftovers from our yummy local Thai place, that was buried in the back of the fridge. Or, I guess in the time it took me to cook, eat, throw away, and then blog about this crap, I could have gone down to the Thai place and ordered a fresh order or the real thing.

Last night I returned from running 5K, spinning for 45 minutes and an abs class. I still took the time to put the kids to bed, grill a fresh filet of halibut, steam brown rice and sauté spinach for me and my wife. All the while, our basement is flooded and laundry requires the use of Hunter boots. You need to have better time management skills my friend. You also need more Chardonnay! Life is to be enjoyed. Don’t miss a day during this time in your life with young kidsand anyone reading this blog soon can see that you are loosing your mojo.

abs class?! put the kids to bed? cooked dinner? do the laundry?! I can see who wears the pants in your family! Sounds like you don't have a job and you're just a kept man.
