Summer Vacay

Friday, January 30th, 2009

I’m heading up to New York for a few days so I won’t be updating the blog until I return, but I’m sure there will some great stories when I do!

Prediction: Cardinals 30, Steelers 28

The Shameless Carnivore

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

I love eating meat.  Actually, I love eating, period, but meat is at the top of things that I love to eat.  Give me the 24 oz. Bone-In Ribeye at The Palm any day of the week (seriously, give it to me as I am too unemployed right now to afford one myself) and I am a happy man.  Throw a serious helping of horseradish on that steak and I’m even happier.

Up until a few weeks ago I would have considered myself a Shameless Carnivore but since then, I have read the work of a man who has quickly become one of my heroes.  His book, The Shameless Carnivore: A Manifesto for Meat Lovers, has changed my way of thinking about eating meat.

Fun Facts!

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

I’ve been pretty curious to know how many people actually read the blog, so this afternoon I decided to check out some of the trackers that WordPress provides.  Amoung the findings:

  • Since January 1, 178 different people have visited the site a total of 626 times
  • Most people read the site between the hours of 12pm and 2pm.  I guess this shows that everyone is using their lunch break constructively
  • People in six countries have viewed the site (US, Canada, Australia, Sweden, Switzerland and Italy)
  • 13 people have visited this site from Google (the best is someone Googled “Unisex Bathroom Stories” and found this site that way)
  • 62% of visitors use a Mac.  Very interesting
  • 56 visits have lasted over an hour.  That is dedication!

I would really like to get the number of visitors higher.  If we can get 250 unique visitors by the end of February I will post a surpise for everyone that I know they will love.  And, yes, it will include nudity.  So spread the word, tell your friends, paint the town, whatever you want!

The challenge begins…….NOW

We (Don’t) Want Your Blood

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

I used to donate blood all the time in college. Every six weeks, or whatever the length of time they would make you wait between givings, if I remembered, I would donate. In fact, one time, I even donated Platelets, which, if you’ve never done so before, is a one hour procedure that, I can only assume, feels like doing heroin (there were a lot of commas in that sentence, sorry). After I graduated, for whatever reason, I stopped donating. I decided, in honor of Barack Obama, I would go and donate this afternoon.

If by together, you mean me and you minus me, then I would agree

Video for the Day

Kind of cheesy, but this song has been in my head this morning, so I youtube it and this video comes up. Enjoy…

Scott Reviews Restaurants v1.0

Saturday, January 17th, 2009

I have a lot of free time on my hands.  There really isn’t much to do during the day, while everyone is at either work or school, other than go to the gym and do the occasional errand, like go to the dry cleaners or post office.  Being that my days in Atlanta are numbered, I recently decided that I should be going to all of the restaurants that I haven’t had the chance to go to in my nearly seven years living here.  I figured here is as good of a place as any to provide you, my faithful reader, with some reviews.


IKEA? More like, IH8U!

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

I have a love/hate relationship with IKEA.  Actually, its more like a eh/despise relationship.  When I was little, I remember going to IKEA with my parents (at Potomac Mills Mall…what a drive that was!) and they would put me in the ball-pit while they shopped.  Obviously, the trauma has not worn off.

Nearly all of my apartment is furnished by IKEA, so I can’t 100% hate on it, but out of the 10 or so pieces that I have from the store, only three are still in perfect working order.  Now, I admit, I am somewhat to blame for these pieces falling apart: the majority of my IKEA construction took place the day after I graduated from Emory and I was basically operating on no sleep.  The majority of the blame, though, falls on one person, and what a tool (pun!) this guy has turned out to be.

The blame falls on the IKEA Man.

My Apartment’s Man Maid

Monday, January 12th, 2009

I have a confession to make.  I’m about to come clean (pun!) on something that I have hidden from many people for a while.

I have a maid.

Not only do I have a maid, but I have a man maid.
