Today I Tried Burrito Boyz

Today I finally tried Burrito Boyz, which had previously been highly recommended to me.

I had a large steak burrito and it was delicious.

It was far and away better than the one I had previously at Fresh West.

Honestly, I think Fresh West was just having an off day or something. That steak burrito wasn't anywhere near as good as the chicken one I'd had from them previously. Perhaps some day I'll give it another chance. Not before having another chicken one though.

I definitely recommend Burrito Boyz for a tasty, filling lunch. Just ensure you have somewhere to go to eat it or that it's nice enough outside to chill on the sidewalk and eat on the go. There's really no room in the place amongst the lunch crowd to sit and eat, despite the existance of some bar stools and a little countertop. For Lunch!

Now here's something new.

I'm starting to post a bunch of ramblings about what I eat for lunch.

This is blogging at its finest. I have no reason to believe anyone should have any interest whatsoever in what I eat for lunch, but this is my world and I don't make anyone read it.

So now you get to hear about my lunch. Lucky you.

You'll find the link over on the right at the top of the Weasel's on the Web section.

WTF Is This??

Last week during lunch, the topic of the McDonald's Filet O' Fish came up.

Who ever orders this thing? Is there a McFish market that we're largely unaware of? Might the thing taste good?

It didn't seem likely, but the fact remained that I'd never tried one and it seemed a bit rash to denounce it as a waste of menu space without ever actually eating one.

I decided that the next time I was in a food court for lunch with a McD's in it, I'd try the fishburger for better or worse, so at least I could say I'd done it.

Friday was that day. I did it. It sucked.

I give them full marks for presentation though. I think it was the first burger I've ever got from a fast food place that looked exactly the same as it does in the pictures. It was perfect, right down to the glassy smooth bun. It didn't really look all that edible, really. It looked like a plastic toy of some sort. Not so much as a crease in the bun. A perfect square fish thing in the middle. A little bit of the tartar sauce hanging down the side. Not really appetizing, but perfect none the less.

As for the taste… well it tasted exactly like what you'd expect a McFishBurger to taste like. Pretty much crap. I don't think I'll ever be cooking up fish at home and think that the perfect thing to top it off will be a piece of processed cheese.

In the end, I still can't figure out how it's stayed on the menu all these years while such greatness like the Arch Deluxe has gone the way of the dodo.

So then… why am I rambling on here about a fishburger? Well I've decided to try my best to have something different for lunch every day from now on until I run out of options at the various establishments I go to.

Every day. Nothing the same. And you'll hear about it here.

I know. You're moist just thinking about it. Exciting times, these are.

So Friday was McFishBurger day.

Yesterday, I was at KFC and ordered the Spicy Big Crunch combo with the poutine. Cost damn near $10.

For $10 I can get the killer burrito from Fresh West, so with that bit of perspective, I realized again why I never get the Big Crunch combo with a poutine at KFC.

It's delicious. No issues there. It's just not worth the couple extra bucks you pay over a Classic and poutine combo. The burger is a bit bigger… but for those extra 2 bucks you could add another 2 pieces of regular chicken. The Big Crunch is not two pieces of chicken bigger.

So there you have it. Get the classic combo with the poutine and add a piece of chicken for a buck. It'll be cheaper and more filling.

As a final aside, KFC at this point has the best fast food poutine I've had. I'll be sure to post here if I come across a better one sometime during these lunchtime adventures.

Intellectual References That Make You Look Stupid

This amused me.

In an article on the PS3 launch in The Star, the reporter had this to say:

Like Halley’s comet, you only get to unbox a next-generation console every four or five years.

I'll bet he thought he was being clever.

Of course, Halley's comet only shows up every 75 years or so… which makes the reference pretty much completely irrelevant and off topic.

Maybe he should have used the Olympics or World Cup or something a little more in line with his intended time span.

Maybe he meant that Halley's Comet is actually into video games and drops by undetected every few years to pick up a new console.

Stupid people amuse me.

I call shenanigans!

10 sexiest Canadian men alive my ass!!

I may be no George Clooney but I'll be damned if I'm not gonna make a list including all these yahoos!

Who the hell are these people?? I've only actually heard of 3 or 4 of them!

I think everyone should write letters to the editor declaring that NotWeasel is sexier than the whole lot of them!

Just don't tell Holmes. That dude could probably kick my ass and frankly, I'm kinda hoping he might just show up some day to fix my shower.

Woot for Choice Wording!

I just thought I'd point out that if you go to the Blogger search page and look for lovenest, this little palace here is the first result.

I don't know how long that will last…  but in the meantime, I say welcome to all the amourous drifters that are just passing through here hoping for something much more arousing and far less caustic.

You've come to the wrong place…  but hopefully find entertainment none the less.

If you're disappointed, comfort yourself by knowing you couldn't afford the rent here anyway.  This nest is out of your league.


I like my life.

This past weekend I was sitting on my sofa looking around, wishing my wife was home from work and just thinking about how great my life is.

Looking back to what my life was like 15 years ago or so, just getting into high school with the whole world ahead of me, I think I've now got everything I ever wanted out of life.

For all the hustle and bustle of trying to get ahead, get a better job, get promoted, buy this, save for that… it's nice to be able to sit back and realize that even if nothing ever changes, and this is as good as it gets, I'm quite content.

I have a good life. I have a wife that loves me. I have good friends. I have a roof over my head… that's somewhat mine… and all is well with the world as it pertains to me.

Thanks God. You da man!

People With Uber-Lame Lives

If your commute to and from work is the best part of your day, you've either got one seriously kick-ass ride or your life is uber-lame!!

I mean, I have days where I absolutely hate being at work… and I suppose that on those days the drive both in and home is generally more enjoyable than actually being there… but that doesn't hold a candle to actually being at home and able to do whatever I feel like.

Here's the article.

Those people seriously gotta STFU. It's studies like that which are going to keep the powers that be from trying to reduce my commute times because they think I'm happy as a lark fighting our way through rush hour traffic every day!
