I have always had a love affair with Waffles.
Ever since I was a little lad that had enough teeth to chew I remember munching down the criss crossed bready treat. My mom used to make me a bunch and then cut them up and put them in to a big plastic bag in all of their buttery/syrupy glory. I liked them best when they had a second to marinate in the bag and become a kind of primordial slop that I shoveled in to my mouth on the way to school.
Waffles and I grew up together. I was that kid in the Ego commercials screaming “le go my ego”. I probably couldn’t enunciate things properly because I was stuffing my face with a stack of Ego’s at the time. I don’t discriminate either. I’ve expanded my waffle horizon to include all of the beautifully checkered bread stuffs of the world! Currently my go to waffle has been the multi grain Kroger brand and it’s as beautiful and faithful as the Ford Model T. It always delivers just the right amount of crispy juiciness that I’ve come to expect from a proper waffle.
I think its not secret that the key to this deliciousness in the form of texture and taste delivery are all wrapped up in the waffles revolutionary design. The butter spread and syrup can pool up and hide in its evenly spaced craters and deliver equally satisfying deliciousness with every bite. The waffle is simply BRILLIANT.
SO in conclusion, if you are not eating waffles I don’t really think that is a wise decision. Re think your breakfast and if you don’t have room for a waffle in your breakfast than consider making room. And, you don’t even have to eat waffles in the morning! That is one of the greatest waffle misconceptions! Don’t forget that waffles go well with chicken dinners as well! They could just fill that emptiness you feel in the middle of the day when you reflect on your lackluster existence.

Formula 1 is the most exciting/intriguing current motor sport in my opinion. (I am a bit of a gear head which you’ll find out if I keep making posts and if “you” whoever “you” are decide to read them…) I think that there a number of reason for why it is the most exciting/intriguing motor sport today. Here are a few that come to mind:
– The drivers race on tracks that have RIGHT handed turns.
– There is a ton of history and prestige within the sport.
– The teams race on tracks around the world in various weather conditions.
– The drivers experience more g’s than a damn astronaut.
– The cars are like spaceships that have been grounded and equipped with wheels.
– The key to a winning F1 car is not just in the driver but rather the entire team including the driver. The pit crew must have blistering fast stop times. The engineer must have all of his maths done accurately. The mechanics must have the car put together in the most precise way. The strategist must always be watching and adapting the teams overall race strategy to try and gain that crucial tenth of a second. Most importantly all of these areas of an F1 team must be cohesive and operate as a unit.
I’ll stop there but if you’d like some actual F1 facts I have found a list:
The whole reason I even got on this subject and thought it worthy of some type is because I very much want to go to the Circuit of Americas. For those of you who do not know this is the new American road course that hosts F1 in the United States. The course is in Austin, Texas and tickets last year were around 1,000 buckaroos. This year I’d like to use what little tax refund money that I receive to go to this race. I was trying to find some ticket prices to see if this little dream of mine could even leave the ground but it turned out to be an exercise in futility. The Circuit of the Americas’s organization has not yet release prices for 2013. I signed up to be notified via email the moment that ticket pricing becomes available but that was the best I can do. I did check else where on the world wide web but didn’t find anything. It seems that for now I wait, save my refund money, and hope that the tickets will be less than 1,000 dollars this year.
Here is a fun video of Vettel putting his foot down at Circuit of the Americas..
This must be short. Hello to the internet. Hello to other people on the internet. I now need to walk my dog and get to class. Is “being on time” being at least 5 minutes early?
