Now here’s a deal Herman Cain could really get behind.
Just when you thought you’d heard it all, Pizza Hut goes and does something like this.
That’s right. For just $10,010 *plus tax* you get everything you need for your proposal.
And yes, this is serious.
But hurry, these deals won’t last. Offer ends Valentine’s Day.
Thursdays are all about Party on the Patio, and if you didn’t get a chance to here these guys live, you are in for a treat my friend.
Ladies, let me first say Ross Cooper is as adorable as he is talented. If you don’t have plans tonight, you should come to Ozona and see him. He’s a local musician from A&M and his sound is a mix of blues, rock, and country alternative. It’s like everything I love fused into one person. Yeah the podcast is long, but totally worth taking a listen to.
And listen to Charley make this week’s drink of the week. Thankfully he’s a better bartender than historian.
Make your own version of Charley’s refreshing Drink of the Week here.
Meet Ioana Spangenberg. Although her name is a mouthful, I don’t think she’s ever had one in her life.
And no, this is not photo shopped. Iona quickly nabbed the nickname the “human hourglass,” as her waist measures at just 20 inches. To put that into perspective for you guys, women’s pant sizes usually begin at 24 inches and it’s just 5 inches larger than a CD. A CD!!
The Romanian-born model claims that her waist is natural and not due to any sort of no-carb, no-fat, rice cake-only diet. Iona told The Sun, “No one seems to believe it, but every day I eat three big meals and I snack on chocolate and crisps all the time. I just have a small stomach. It’s a bit like having a natural gastric band – if I eat too much, I feel sick.”
She also told the paper that her waist used to be 15 inches when she was a teen, and that nobody wanted to date her because of her small frame. “Someone could put their hands around it, their fingers would touch and they would still have extra room.”
Now, I am from the school of thought that women should be proud of their bodies no matter how curvy or thin they may be. The problem with Iona is she looks completely emaciated- no part of her looks healthy. Barring a serious health issue, I don’t see how this is her legitmate body.
And the scariest part? From some comments I’ve been reading online, people would be willing to self-mutilate themselves to achieve a similar look.
Iona represents a completely unattainable body image and weight loss goal. Our society is quick to throw out the word “fat,” but seems hesitant to say a girl is too skinny.
I’m calling a spade a spade. This girl should not be modeling. She should be tied down and force fed lard.
What do you think? Maybe this really IS natural? Do you think she should be modeling?
If you haven’t already noticed with the lovey dovey propaganda popping up at pharmacies or the Hallmark commercials taking over entire networks, Valentine’s Day is coming up. But instead of dreading the day, why not see it as a challenge?
Sure it’s a drag, but let me give you a little insider female info: If she says she doesn’t want to celebrate Valentines Day- she’s lying. I know because I say this. I’ve never had a decent Valentines, so even though I tell someone I don’t want them to go through all the trouble, I really do. And no, I’m not usually the girl to say one thing and mean another, I just know that if I were to not receieve anything, I’d probably be mad. And no one likes an angry ginger.
Your girl wants to be surprised, and this is your big chance to do it.
So guys, it’s time to make her friends jealous and to move beyond your usual halfhearted purchase of a box of chocolates from CVS. I’m talking give her the Best. Gift. Ever.
Sure this made up holiday is an especially difficult one to navigate, but don’t let your genuine attempts turn into disgusting cliches. Help me help you.
Tell me about the absolute best gift you ever gave your girl for V-Day.. or ladies the best gift you’ve ever been given! I’ll post the most creative/awesome gifts to the blog just in time for the holiday.
Just in time for Super Bowl (no one cares about) Sunday. I hate when people use this phrase because it doesn’t really make sense if you think about, but I could care less about the big game. I’m in it for the commercials, free booze, and the snack foods my friends only prepare for times like these.
Speaking of, if you’re hosting a party, here’s an awesome appetizer to try. These could quite possibly be the coolest cupcakes I’ve ever seen, and if I had any baking prowess, I’d be all over it.
Buffalo Chicken Cupcake Recipe
Makes 10 cupcakes
For the cake:
•1/2 cup hot sauce (I recommend a hot sauce that is typically used for Buffalo chicken. Frank’s is the classic choice. I used Bella’s Medium Wing Sauce.)
•1/4 cup unsalted butter
•1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
•1 cup brown sugar
•1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons sour cream
•1 cup flour
•1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
For the blue cheese buttercream frosting:
•2 ounces crumbled blue cheese
•1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
•2 cups powdered sugar
To make the cupcakes:
1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. In a medium-sized saucepan on medium-high heat, heat hot sauce and butter until butter is melted.
3. Add the blue cheese and mix periodically until blue cheese is melted.
4. Remove from heat and mix in the sugar.
5. In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream and egg.
6. Once the hot sauce mixture is cool enough to touch, mix the sour cream mixture into the hot sauce mixture.
7. In another small bowl, mix together the flour and baking soda.
8. Fold the flour mixture into the hot sauce mixture.
9. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full.
10. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
To make the blue cheese buttercream frosting:
1. Mix blue cheese on high speed until smooth.
2. Add the unsalted butter and mix on high speed until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes).
3. Slowly mix in the powdered sugar until fully combined.
4. Pipe or spread onto cooled cupcakes.
The Buffalo Chicken Drummette on Top of the Buffalo Chicken Super Bowl Cupcakes
Just before serving, top the cupcakes with buffalo chicken wings or buffalo chicken drummettes. Imagine the frosting as a sweet blue cheese dip and go to town.
This girl is a genius!
Oh yeah, and Tom Brady is overrated.
