The Bacone

The Bacone
A bacon cone filled with scrambled eggs and country gravy topped with a biscuit.

Sorry if this is becoming the bacon blog.  I just can’t help myself sometimes.  I know that Sarah and don’t have a wedding registry but I think if we did this would probably get included.  I probably need to write a running post now just to burn the calories I gained just thinking about this.

Movie Quote Friday (Bros edition)

April 24th, 2009 · 7 Comments

Today’s movies all feature famous bros.

  1. When do I learn how to punch?
  2. Bro A: What, you’ve never run an errand on the clock before?
    Bro B: No, I happen to take care of my personal business after work. When the taxpayers aren’t paying me to protect them.
    Bro A: Give me a break. You’ve never stopped and bought yourself a cup of coffee?
    Bro B: I bring a thermos.
  3. Hey! What’re you kicking me for? You want me to ask? All right, I’ll ask! Ma’am, where do the high school girls hang out in this town?
  4. Bro A: Hey, are those lizard?
    Bro B: No, they’re Italian. I’m gonna fuckin’ buy these.
  5. Let me tell you something my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane.
  6. It was actually about 1 and a half I think. It was 1 and a half, I’ve got a great Polaroid of it, and he’s right there, must be 1 and a half.
  7. Bro A: You want me to drive?
    Bro B: No, you’re supposed to be suicidal, remember? I’LL drive.
    Bro A: Anybody who drives around in this town IS suicidal.
  8. Three pitchers of beer, and you still can’t ask.
  9. You know, I’m getting kinda tired. I could use a foot massage myself.
  10. No, I’m serious. This is a serious exercise. It’s like an SAT question. Which one is going to get to the hundred dollar bill first?

Movie Quote Friday (Hawaii edition)

April 17th, 2009 · 6 Comments

Tonight, one of Sarah’s coworkers is hosting a wedding shower for her and two other coworkers that are also getting married. It’s a luau themed shower so I can only assume they are roasting a whole pig. Anyways, all of today’s quotes or movies feature Hawaii in some way.

  1. Are those sad tissues or happy tissues?
  2. I didn’t ask for a shrink – that must’ve been somebody else. Also, that pudding isn’t mine. Also, I’m wearing this suit today because I had a very important meeting this morning and I don’t have a crying problem.
  3. Sir, are you telling me that your only real flight time is at the controls of a video game?
  4. I’m a people person, very personable. I absolutely insist on enjoying life. Not so task-oriented. Not a work horse. If you’re looking for a Clydesdale I’m probably not your man. Like I don’t live to work, it’s more the other way around. I work to live. Incidentally, what’s your policy on Columbus Day?
  5. Good luck with your layoffs, all right? I hope your firings go really well.
  6. His destructive programming is taking effect. He will be irresistibly drawn to large cities, where he will back up sewers, reverse street signs, and steal everyone’s left shoe.
  7. My shirt size is medium husky
  8. My father left home when I was 5. That’s why I’m named Jack, as in, “Jack tell your mother I’m just going out to get the paper.”
  9. Sir Galahad. You’re Sir Galahd, Don Juan, and Casanova all rolled into one.
  10. Well, you can tell Lt. Dickinson from me, he couldn’t hit a bull in the butt with a bass fiddle.

Movie Quote Friday (Easter Edition)

April 10th, 2009 · 5 Comments

Ok, I’m tired of being RandBall’s lackey.  This week’s quotes all feature movies that either involve, Easter, rabbits, or possibly Jesus.  As usual, your job is to name the movies in the comments.

  1. 28 days… 6 hours… 42 minutes… 12 seconds. That… is when the world… will end.
  2. A: Hey Sol, do you ever wonder at what point you just got to say fuck it man like when you gotta stop living up here and start living down here?
    B: It’s 7.30 in the morning dawg.
  3. [making a toast] And my little sister Chrissy, for teaching me that life is nothing if you’re not obsessed.
  4. A: Who’s Harvey?
    B: A white rabbit, six feet tall.
    A: Six feet?
    C: Six feet three and a half inches. Now let’s stick to the facts.
  5. Well, you see, I didn’t know where your office was. So I asked the newsboy. He didn’t know. So I asked the fireman, the green grocerer, the butcher, the baker, they didn’t know! But the liquor store guy… he knew.
  6. Please! What kind of Mickey Mouse orginization would name their team The Ducks?
  7. You know what? There is NO Easter Bunny! Over there, that’s just a guy in a suit!
  8. I imagine that right now, you’re feeling a bit like Alice. Hmm? Tumbling down the rabbit hole?
  9. Aunt Clara had for years labored under the delusion that I was not only perpetually 4 years old, but also a girl.
  10. A: I hate my name. What kind of name is Jesus anyway?
    B: It’s biblical.
    A: Yeah, no kidding.

It’s that time of year again

Beer Mile

I love this event.  I sometimes think about doing it more than once a year.  This year, I think I’m really going to push myself and see how fast I can do this.  I think I can do it under 8 minutes but under 7 would be fantastic.  Drop me a line if you need the info.

30 Rock Sandwich

If you don’t watch 30 Rock, this post is probably meaningless to you.  Turns out the sandwich that was so coveted by everyone on 30 Rock last season was from this place.  It’s real.  Now I want one. Does it have bacon though???

Bacon Item of the day

April 1st, 2009 · No Comments

In what appears to becoming a major staple of this site, I present the back item of the day.  Today, it’s squeeable bacon.  I think I like this idea.  Like I really want a BLT but don’t feel like I have the time to actually cook bacon, it’s Squeez Bacon to the rescue.  I’m thinking this could also be good for french fries.

I don’t understand why the pigs are raised in the US, only to be made squeezable in Sweden, before being shipped back to the US.  This doen’t sound very efficient.  Someone try this and let me know how it is, or buy me some and I’ll report back on it.

Update: Damn it!  This is probably fake, isn’t it.  Too bad.  I love this idea.

I bet that was enough to catch your attention. I’ve been going through a bacon craze lately. This was passed on to me via my future pseudo-sister-in-law and it seems like a great idea:

smells like bacon

I’m not sure if I would want to smell bacon all the time. I’m afraid it would either be way to distracting or else it might ruin it for me. I love where their head’s at though on this one.

Minimalist Running Shoes

March 23rd, 2009 · 1 Comment

Today was the first real run in the new kicks. I’ve read a couple articles about getting closer to barefoot running to force better running form but it was the book, Brain Training by Matt Fitgerald, that made me finally make the plunge. With minimal cushioning in the heel you’re forced to land on the midfoot because otherwise it hurts. Time will tell if this makes any difference in the long run but I have to assume that it’s better running with a more natural stride.
