I'm not going to take the first part of this blog to fill you in on the recent tragedy in the world. You've seen the pics, the vids, etc. What I am going to do is take a second to point out the good in the world, It's during these horrific events, that some of our greatest societal moments occur. The best of humanity is shown when the worst is present. I'm talking about the marathon runners that crossed the finish line and kept running to the nearest hospital to donate blood. I'm talking about the people who live around the finish line that gave food, drinks, shelter, phone charging stations, etc. I'm talking about the bars and restaurants that opened their doors and provided a place for families to rest as they waited to hear word from their loved ones.
If we dwell on the negative, live in fear and stay angry, the bad guys win. I refuse to let that happen. Do situations like this lead you to be a little more cautious...at least immediately? Of course. But, I will not change my plans. I will not put off doing something out of fear. What I will do is spend my extra time thinking about the good in people. The good that was shown by the people of Boston, the first responders and marathon participants. Those that perished would not want their legacy clouded by anger and hate. That hate is what perpetuated the evil-doers into their actions in the first place. Let's really piss off the bad guy and rise above!
Made it into my first Brewers game of the season last night and let me tell you, it was delicious! Nope! I'm not talking about the cute boys...although how do those pants make the players butts look like that? I'm talking about all of the food I inhaled. I'm not much of a sports person but I love the bevs, the snacks and the friends at a Brewers game!
Last night I tried two new things - Poutine and The Food Network's Brat Mac N Cheese. AAAAHHHHH! SO YUMMY! Poutine is a Canadian dish that has fries, gravy and cheese curds - all of the major food groups. I will be indulging again! But the best...THE BEST was the Food Network stand. It can be found in section 222 and offers various, gourmet mac n cheeses. My friend, Susan, tipped me off to this dish and I owe her my life. I don't generally eat meat but this brat mac n cheese may be the greatest thing that's ever happened to me. EAT IT ASAP!
What's your must eat dish, snack, food at the ballpark?
I'm sure, by now, you've heard we have a brand spankin' new KISS studio. It's fancy...or it will be. I love a good construction worker like the next lady, but we're spending a lot of quality time together and we may be getting a lil sick of eath other. We have a new control board, new mics, sparkley new decor and the carpet is stain free (until Wes gets back from vacay). It's going to be awesome. However, right now, as I type this blog, the fumes from whatevs they're doing on the other side of the room are making me loopy...more loopy that usual. This should be an interesting show...Whhoooooooo!
