In an effort to distract the three people who might care from the fact that I haven't posted the pictures from the last day robyngoodfellow was visiting, I'm linking to something even better than the Vin Diesel or Chuck Norris lists...

heeheee... I was just snickering loudly enough to have a few of my esteemed coworkers popping their heads around like, What the... XD

Oooh. Yummy. Definitely miles better than the bottle o' Vault Zero I'm staring down... although I'm not sure which would be worse to be laughing into one's nose. XD

Probably the Vault. Is that an energy drink? And do those really work?

Oh, well... kind of... I mean, it's basically - I can't remember what that stuff was called, Coke's version of Mountain Dew that replaced... yargh, can't remember what that was called either... >_< *fails* Ah!! Mello Yello!! Okay, so Vault tastes like the stuff that mostly replaced Mello Yello - since I did still see that a few places after the other came out - it just supposedly has more caffeine. Doesn't have any of the other energy drink stuff, just more caffeine. *shrugs* Sometimes the regular energy drinks'll make me feel kinda sick, and coffee always really screws me up now if I have more than about a quarter cup (shakes and headaches and feeling like shit in general... it actually makes me feel MORE tired - although, anything espresso-based is fine, maybe because it has about a tenth the caffeine of regular coffee?? Or maybe there's some chemical in drip coffee but not in espresso that's screwing me up, I dunno), so I drink this when I'm sleepy but also feel like crap already so don't wanna risk the other stuff. XD
Energy drinks, eh, they're just coffee for non-coffee drinkers, to me. *g* Some of them taste really good, some are horrible. Sobe Adrenaline Rush and Kronik are my favorites for flavor. Peachy and grapefruity, respectively. ^_^b

Sobe' Adrenaline is peachy, huh? Good to know...

The alternate show title was the best!
I still want to paint my mixer like his. I need to find some good paints though.

If they were smart, KitchenAid would partner with him to make a special edition would like that...

Okay, now We have to come up with some...

Just as the French Revolution mob came for Marie Antoinette, Alton showed up, saying "Okay, LET THEM eat cake!" and started passing out samples. The crowd was instantly pacified, but poor Marie ate two pieces and in mid tastegasm was decapitated by her own tongue.

I concur on these facts.

He's possibly the coolest celebrity on the Food Network. His picture is in the icon I used for this post. Lots of good info here...


If you like cooking AT ALL, if you ever see a video of his show Good Eats in a store, rent it. If you don't like it, I'll refund your rental price.
