It had better come with some killer fries...

Honestly, I should probably just change the name of this blog to "One Meal Only" or something like that. Most of the interesting things I find to post lately are about food.

Since a few months ago I introduced you to "Baseball's Best Burger," which appealed to no one, it's time for a follow-up. I now present "The $100 Burger," brought to you by some swanky resort in Florida, long recognized among cognoscenti as a bastion of burgerdom.

I guess rich people just can't find ways to spend their money fast enough. But, gee, they're giving a whole $10 a pop to Make-A-Wish. I wonder if a kid who makes a wish to eat at that restaurant would be allowed in? Hmmm.

Get your Pollock on

Hi kids. Thought I'd just go crazy and do yet another post in a mere week, as I found something that tickled me and it seemed like a good thing to share.

Check out this site and make like Jackson Pollock on your computer screen. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to change colors (left click), but once I did, I had a lot of fun splashing my "paint" around. A simple click on the refresh button gives you a fresh, clean "canvas" to torture with color.

I even printed out a couple of the results that I particularly liked (right click and select print), and they turned out pretty well. I may have used an entire cartridge of color toner, sure, but we all have to suffer for our art.

Signed prints will be available in the lobby.

Well, slap me twice and call me Sally!

I can hardly believe it myself, back here again in a mere day. But this news couldn't wait. Being the Krispy Kreme fan I am, I had to share what I just learned:

Friday, June 2nd is National Doughnut Day! Stop by your local participating Krispy Kreme and get a free Krispy Kreme doughnut of your choice!

How is that for an offer? No just hoping for a hot original glazed off the line, but a guaranteed freebie. The Web site says it's "to express [their] appreciation for [our] support." Given that I blog about them pretty much more than anything else, shouldn't I get two? Seems fair to me.

Anyway, if you go, please feel free to come back and share your tasty experience. One chocolate iced kreme filled coming up!
