Me Eat Meat.

Not Beloved GirlfriendThis weekend I did something really naughty, something I haven't done in over eight years...

I had a hamburger.

This is kind of a big deal for me as, for a variety of what I feel are very good reasons, I quit eating meat beginning in 2005. Since then I've had, by mistake, exactly one bacon-wrapped shrimp and a couple of stray pepperoni slices buried deep in pizzas ordered by one otherwise well-intentioned girlfriend.

The reason for the break of my meat-fast had to do with Beloved Girlfriend's recent shoulder surgery. She's healing nicely but she's been in a lot of pain and therefore has been scarfing a lot of heavy-duty drugs that make tend to her nauseous. After a week of watching her pick at her plate I loaded her in the car and shlepped her over to Five Guys as I heard they make a damn fine burger. And who doesn't love the burgers?

She chose a cheesburger and, purely out of moral support, I ordered one, too, and it was a tasty little sumbitch. They make them from scratch and slather them with all manner of scrumptious morsels like fried mushrooms and grilled onion. The fries are much like home-made and are almost comically mountainous, even the "regular" size.

I'm very happy to report that BG devoured her meal and put a serious dent in the fries. Yay!

As we were fighting over the crumbs one of the ladies who work the front counter walked up to our table and asked if we enjoyed our meal. She was delighted to hear this was my first burger in eight years but a bit crestfallen when I told her that I wouldn't be back for more. However, I will be back for a sack of them bodacious fries.

The next night BG had pizza and ice cream so I think she's finally over the hump.

Oh, That Mitt.

broken tax systemMitt Romney isn't so much a "vulture capitalist" as he's more of a Grim Reaper. Listen to him talk about harvesting companies once Bain Capitol has fattened them up. (And see Robert Reich's video, below, on how this process works.)


Is Mitt still lying his magic underpants off? Yes. Yes, he is.

"The best part of Ryan saying he didn't have time to explain Mitt's tax plan is that he was on Fox News, a 24/7 infomercial for Romney/Ryan." - a tweet by LOLGOP
