Death In Box – McDonald’s Dinner Box

McDonalds Dinner Box

I was driving in this morning and a new billboard caught my attention.  It was a McDonald’s billboard talking about their new “Mickey D’s® Dinner Box” for only $9.99.  Seemed like a good price so I figured when I got to work I’d check it out.  Not because I would actually buy it (I’ve documented my issues with fast food here) but just cause I was curious as to what actually goes into this fabulous … Continue reading

Taking A Closer Look At My Former Fast Food Obsession

Fuck McDonalds

I’ve got plenty of vices.  I love beer.  I’m big fan of whiskey and I make every excuse (legit or not) to not work out nearly as often as I should.  That said, I’ve had one vice that’s proven the most difficult to beat: Fast Food. Kicking my fast food habit has been more difficult (in some ways at least) than when I quit dipping.  Thanks to the folks at KillTheCan.org I’ve got that one … Continue reading

100 Facts About Me – Or At Least 50

Twitter Logo

There’s recently been a hash tag topic on Twitter called #100FactsAboutMe.  The idea is to tweet 100 facts about yourself (I suppose).  One afternoon I decided that this would be a great idea cause let’s face it… people want to know all about Chewie.  So… without further build up here’s my list: I’m part of the @clevelanddotcom Twitter Twenty! #CLE20 I live in Cleveland but I’m a Steeler fan. In my defense, I grew up … Continue reading

Things That Piss Me Off: The Napkin Dispenser

Napkin Dispenser

OK… I’m trying not to eat a bunch of fast food these days but on a rare occasion I’ll actually stop through the drive through and on an ever rarer occasion will I step inside the store.  One question: What the hell is up with the napkin dispensers in these places?  I’m looking for 1 napkin… maybe 2.  Invariably I reach in and one of two things happens. I scrape the hell out of my … Continue reading

Getting The Most Out Of An Unconventional Weekend

G & C Munching On Some Ice Cream

It’s Monday morning and damn if we didn’t just have a great weekend – though a little on the weird side.  At this point I’m a little sunburned and a little chafed (damn you protective webbing on the swimsuit… damn you to hell!!!) but man was it fun. Friday: After work and dinner on Friday night, we needed to take Mom’s truck to the Nissan dealership so they could work on it Saturday morning.  After … Continue reading

Pick Up A Burger And Watch “Super Size Me”

Super Size Me (2004)

If you’re like me you have eaten your fair share of fast food.  Actually… if you’re like me you’ve eaten more than your fair share of fast food.  I think it’s safe to say that we all understand that this stuff isn’t “good” for us but until you watch this documentary by Morgan Spurlock you may not know just how BAD it is for you. To make a long story short, Spurlock wanted to see … Continue reading

Try Some Cinnamon In Your Eye

Toy Story 3D

The last couple of weekends have been absolutely crazy so I was really looking forward to some quality family time this weekend and ability to knock some stuff off my honey do list.  I had planned on taking Friday off but due to some unforeseen circumstances that didn’t work.  Luckily it was a terrible day weather-wise so the scolding I received wasn’t TOO harsh.  (sorry again hon) Saturday started out very nicely.  We decided not … Continue reading
