So this is what South Carolinians eat!

From 2008 02 03 Ki...

Paul and I were making our monthly junk-food shopping trip Friday (recall my post about Rice Krispie treats from January) and this time we stopped at Super Walmart, since it was across the highway from the number-five-choice-for-dinner Japanese joint, Osaka. While Paul stocked up on such junky fare as bottled water and Odwalla bars, I mostly browsed...and found these!

Piggies in Pancakes...ON A STICK! When you're too lazy to even use a fork! So I guess it's a breakfast corndog?

'Nuf said.

PS: Neither of us bought those piggie things, but I found Stauffer's Valentine's Day shortbread cookies...they're heaven!

It's Been a Hard Day's Night

From 2008 01 31 Pi...

I took some pictures of the boys last week attempting to get something good for a Valentine's Day gift. For fun, I made a collage out of the shots and I was reminded of the Beatle's album: "A Hard Day's Night".

Ironically, the movie was on IFC tonight. The Beatles were so cute when they were, oh, 20 years old!

*okay friends, name the film!

Okay, I'll have to admit I wasn't too thrilled with Eli Manning's draft stunt in the 2004 draft. As many of you know, I have this...THING...for Kerry Collins. Not really a crush, it's not like I have lustful dreams about him (he's married too!), but let's just say that I'm happy when he does well, and get pretty pissed when he's not doing well -- whether in his football or otherwise.

If I remember correctly, the San Diego Chargers had picked Eli first, then traded him to NY for Philip Rivers (Go Pack!) and the opportunity to be #1 pick the following year. I remember news footage of a less-then-happy Eli holding up Chargers jersey, and an absolutely-thrilled Eli with the Giants jersey. Something like that. Remember, I'm just a girl, so I've probably fouled up that entire explanation.

Kerry Collins, the NY Giants starting QB, ended up leaving the team and going to Oakland for the 2004-2005 year, where I believe he was 2nd string to Drew Bledsoe at first. I didn't find any of that very fair, and I directed that disappointment towards Eli. Dave doesn't think I'm being fair. He's probably right.

Tonight was the most exciting Super Bowl I'd seen in years, though. And Eli was certainly deserving of some of the glory! As you've noticed, though, I posted a picture of another key to their win tonight: Plaxico Burress, a former Steeler! Caught the touchdown pass on their last score. He was amazing!

PS: I just read that Kerry Collins has a 1500 acre ranch about an hour west of here, in Asheboro, NC. Cool!
