Gently Down the Stream!!

This video wasn't taken in Midland/Odessa but I could easily see it happening here.  Also can I just say how much I love the internet?  That 7 second video was posted just yesterday and as of writing this has already been viewed over 61 thousand times!  It reminds me of the time somebody uploaded a 5 second video of a waffle falling over... that video has now been viewed over 2.8 Million times! Thanks Internet!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  To celebrate I did some googling and the following are my top 5 favorite St. Patrick's Day Fun Facts.

1. Saint Patrick wasn't originally called Patrick.  His birth name was Maewyn Succat (Remember this was Celtic England over a thousand years ago) but he changed it to Patricius when he joined the priesthood.

2. Saint Patrick is credited with driving the snakes out of Ireland but historians now know that during his life Ireland was in a Minor Ice Age and snakes straight up hate cold weather... #Science.

3. The World's Shortest St. Patrick's Day Parade is in Hot Springs, Arkansas.  It is only 98 feet long.  Last years Parade Grand Marshal was Jim Belushi... nobody knows why.

4. St. Patrick was once put on trial, whatever his exact charges were have been lost to history but his punishment was to "return the gifts that had been bestowed upon him by wealthy women"

5.  St. Patrick had a nephew who would also eventually become known as St. Auxilius.  Patrick was sainted for bringing Christianity to Ireland, that whole banishing the snakes things, and other miracles like turning a walking stick into a living Tree.  Auxilius was sainted for (and I am paraphrasing) "Helping St. Patrick carry his stuff around"

I used to not be a fan of Gordon Ramsay.  He was just another guy on TV yelling all the time.  I honestly thought he was just a guy who got famous in Europe for playing soccer and decided to become a chef and the idea was so novel they gave him a reality show... and then another one, and another, and then some more.  After typing that sentence I got curious just how many shows Gordon Ramsay has had, so I googled it and found out he has had at least 24 shows and/or cooking specials in America and The UK combined.  That is a lot of shows, and I pretty much didn't watch any of them.  But there is a reason he has had so many.  The guy can cook... like really really well. There is a reason he has been awarded 15 Michelin Stars (Michelin Stars are apparently like winning Best Actor, Best Film, and Best Director all at once... but for a chef)

I started to come around when some of his TV stuff went viral.  Like when he ate rotted shark with another British TV host. Or when he awesomely described to a blind chef what their dish was like.

But then I became a huge fan when I came across his youtube cooking tutorials.  And it has completely changed the way I cook some very basic things.

My favorite is his scrambled eggs.

Or when he makes these epic pancakes...

Or when he makes the perfect steak (the fat frying on the side thing I do all the time now)

Now if you will excuse I mysteriously became starving and have to go eat something.

Hey, I love animals.  Animals are awesome.  I watch nature documentaries constantly.  I like every picture of an animal I see on Instagram.  I wouldn't change a thing about animals.  But... what if animals were round?  Have you ever asked yourself that question.  I hadn't until I'd seen this video.  This video, which is really just a commercial for some animation conference, both raises that question... and answers it at the same time.  Thanks Internet!


And if your next logical question after watching that video was... But... what if meerkats were also round?  Then do I have the follow up video for you!

You might not have realized this but for over a year now I've been dealing with some serious stuff.  Stuff that caused the whole range of emotions.  There was Anger. Depression. Confusion.  And I wish I could say acceptance but there was no acceptance.  They had stopped making my favorite Ice Cream flavor. 

My favorite flavor was Ben and Jerry's "Jimmy Fallon's Late Night Snack."  It was delicious.  Potato chip clusters covered in fudge in vanilla ice cream with caramel swirls.  It was good... really good.  It was named after Fallon's then show Late Night.  But then, and you may not have heard about this because there was no fanfare and Fallon has kept a low profile online... Jimmy Fallon started hosting a little program called The Tonight Show

Way to go for Jimmy Fallon... but in the process I lost something precious... I lost Late Night Snack.  And ever since I've had to settle for my second favorite ice cream. Cookie Dough. 

But now it seems Jimmy, Ben, and Jerry have hears my lonely ice-creamless crys in the night.  They have just announced a new Ice Cream.  It's called.... drumroll.... "Tonight Dough"

and i quote... "The Tonight Dough is chock full of the stuff people love… a double-double flavor with two ice creams, two cookie doughs and a crunchy cookie swirl"

Ben and Jerry even went on The Tonight Show to help announce it.

And even better all the proceeds will be donated to a children's charity.  So now all I have to do is taste it...
