True Confessions of a Krispy Kreme Addict

I love donuts! I mean really love donuts. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, the very best are Krispy Kreme chocolate covered creme filled donuts. Their sugary goodness call my name whenever I drive past the Krispy Kreme or walk by theme in the grocery store on my way to the milk section. To resist their siren song is damn near impossible, for they are my downfall.

It's true that I know they are "bad" for me. They are full of sugar and fat, but that's what makes them so good! My addiction knows no bounds for though I am partial to the chocolate covered creme filled variety, I will gladly scarf the wonderful goodness of the traditional glazed, the jelly filled, and make it a point to try the donut of the month whenever possible.

And, like a crack dealer on a street corner, I have designs on addicting the younger generation. I will be that uncle who takes my niece and nephew to the Krispy Kreme and returns them to my sister on a mad sugar rush that will surely cause the destruction of the house and laugh with glee and my sister goes insane yelling at the children to "Stop that!" and "Put the bird cage down!" I have even vowed that my dear niece shall have a chocolate covered creme filled donut of her very own on her first birthday (complete with candle, of course).

"What about Dunkin' Donuts," you ask? Ah, I remember the days of my youth when Uncle Bob would bring me a dozen assorted "Munchkins." Such was the beginning of my donut addiction, but none can top the tender goodness of Krispy Kreme. Just pass the milk and watch your fingers!

Carolina Renaissance Festival 2007

Just got back this evening from the Carolina Renaissance Festival in Huntersville, NC. It was awesome! I'll share more later when I'm not so tired. I uploaded pics to my Picassa web album which you can view by clicking here. I tried several times to upload them on MySpace, but I kept getting I/O errors even when trying to do them one at a time, so I'll try again later. Besides, I'm still waiting on Roxanne to get the pictures she took off of her camera so I can upload them as well.

I also have a video I took of a Bagpiper, but I'm going to have to trim it a bit as it was a little to large to upload on MySpace.

That Just Sucks!

For the first time in four years, Roxanne and I both have a shared weekend off that coincides with one of the weekends that the annual Carolina Renaissance Festival is going on. Of course, it just figures that Lowe's Motor Speedway, which is in the same vicinity as the Festival, is hosting the Bank of America 500 that same weekend so every hotel in a 50 mile radius is booked and/or outrageously priced. I had considered just driving up and back in the same day, but it's about a three-hour trip one-way, so I don't think that would be plausible (especially if we go in full Renaissance garb). Mayhaps we'll get lucky and we'll have another shot at it before the Festival ends on November 18.

Oh yeah, I should probably mention that the Festival opened October 6 and we were planning on going on the weekend of October 13-14.

Double Bloggin' (the future of my internet rants & writings)

Well, I finally went and did it; I sold out and created a freakin' MySpace page. I guess what I'm going to have to do from now on when I feel the urge to blog is to write it out in Edit Pad and then paste it into MySpace and into Blogger. So, I'll be double bloggin' from now on. I feel so ashamed, LOL.

Getting better (or just lucky) @ Golf

I managed to break 100 on Saturday for a round of golf... I shot a 97! Ok, so the course was only a Par 60 so I was still +37, but I only lost 4 balls to the water-hazard-gods. ff34d
