IKEA food plus Bourne Ultimatum

I don't know why I always think this is a good idea, but everytime I go to IKEA, I end up in their cafeteria/restaurant coveting their delicious array of Swedish and American food. They have such amazing offerings like shrimp salad for $3.99 and Veggie Lasagne with side for $3.99. And then there are the side offerings of delicious heart attacks such as curly fries, mac n' cheese, and grilled cheese. Well needless to say, after ordering curly fries on my last visit, and being allowed to sample the mac n' cheese, I have been eagerly awaiting my next trip to Sweden in America hit that cheesiness up! And yesterday I did! World, I will conquer you afterall!

Ok, so I order this mac n' cheese, and being in a hurry, I ask for it to go so I may walk around IKEA eating their food. And instead of walking and 'taking care of business' in the store like I planned, I instead, end up munching a couple bites of food in three separate living rooms, actually enjoying their display livingrooms as if they were my own, feet up, food out, and leaning back like a cholo. Sure my elbows weren't up, but they were moving from side to side.

Now IKEA food is pretty all right for being in a furniture store and costing pennies on the dollar (do they import the food from child laborers in China?), but man, eating that much mac n' cheese with nothing else almost killed me. And that, my friends, was how I spent my Thursday afternoon.

Now to the evening portion of the program, cause you know that's when I let loose and get crazy! That's right! Movie time! I saw the Bourne Ultimatum and was honestly soooo impressed! It was really loud in the theater, to fully submerse you into the chase scenes - and there were aplenty! This is the third in the spy trilogy which began with Bourne Identity and continued with Bourne Supremacy. And may I just say, the Bourne Ultimatum totally doesn't disappoint when it comes to action and excitement! This movie was pretty hot. From chase scenes on foot to car, the action was non-stop and really fun. When previously Jason Bourne was asking, 'Who am I', and the second one 'Who killed my girlfriend and who wants to kill me', the third is more revealing. Jason Bourne comes home to discover who he is, and how he got to be the way he is now. The story delivers, but the action is totally where it is at for this movie goer. The film had fun plot twists, amazing superhuman action, and awesome stunts. This one is totally worth the $15 at the movie theater.

Yahoo! project and more

Hello one and probably one reader!

How are you doing? Well I have been incredibly busy working here and there, but mainly focusing on spending time with my family. You see, I have a very close knit family and my grandmother has decided to move up to Denver - and that move is taking place tomorrow. So I have been hanging out at her home 9 hours a day for the last week or so. I am trying to get in as much grandmother love as possible. :)

and in the midst of all this family stuff, I forgot to announce my latest special on HGTV, 'Hot Grills, Cool Patios 2007'! It premiered this Sunday, and I am sure it will replay for you to tivo. It was at this convention that I got EXTREMELY ill, like death bed ill with the 'Reno Stomach Flu' as the ER doctor so kindly called it, that not only comes with all the sumptuous symptoms of the flu such as the night sweats, menopause heat flashes, loss of appetite, inability to focus and talk, sore throat, runny nose, congestion that could block a semi from passing on the freeway, but it also comes with a dose of nausea and diarrhea, the latter of which, I am proud to say, never hit me. If there is one adjective out there that describes me, it's KLASSy, people, klassy.

So the funny thing is I just remember being so ill on that shoot. All i can remember is not being able to hold sentences nor thoughts together, let alone string together words to form actual intelligible sentences, but there I am, on TV, looking and sounding all right. Unless you know me extremely well, my voice sounds pretty clear when it needed to be. Not to shabby master producers and editors on the show. Not too shabby.

Anyhow, I just completed a little video for Yahoo! Videogames where I take you inside the ultra-exclusive VIP launch event for the highly anticipated Madden 08 videogame. Man up boys, it's time to get your game on. Ooh rah.
