Buy a Baboon for $1k … WTF?

March 1, 2012 | Filed Under Fun | Leave a Comment 

I just saw this infographic on pinterest and immediately went WTF!

You know, I don’t really want a baboon, but for $1k… that’s a steal man. I should get a baboon to scare away the coyotes who’ve been picking off my chickens.

Seriously, some of these animals are pretty damn enticing to me… a Kangaroo for $3k? And a two-toed Sloth?

Preparing For Tough Mudder

February 29, 2012 | Filed Under Fun, Health, Sports | Leave a Comment 

So today’s the day. My brothers and I are going to do Tough Mudder together in exactly 2 months. And that means it’s time to start training.

What am I going to do to train?

1) Continue three 20 minute P90X sessions per week (my normal routine)
2) Play soccer once a week (again, my normal routine)
3) Jog 3 miles twice a week, pushing up to 4 miles the week before the race.

That’s it. I sort of dread #3 because I hate long distance running. But I’m going to need the endurance to make it through a 10+ mile obstacle course race.

Food Experiment – Pumpkin with cinnamon, Bailey’s and roasted pecans

I love sweet potato casserole. But it’s always made way too sweet for my tastes and usually with corn flakes or some other off-limit food.

Today I’m going to try to make something similar:

1 can of pumpkin
1 handful of roasted pecans
10 shakes of cinnamon
1 shot of Bailey’s
5 shakes of Pumpkin spice

I’ll let you know how it turns out.
