Shopping for Kitchen Gear

April 27, 2012 // Posted in Gadgets, Home, Living, Shopping (Tags: , , ) |  Comments Off on Shopping for Kitchen Gear

Okay, it is time for me to do some fucking shopping for my kitchen. When I set up my place, my mom and dad got me lots of stuff, but I never really went out and bought much myself. I have found that I really like to cook and I am in desperate need of stuff to do that. I am going to go buy a bunch of new gadgets as well as pots and pans. I want new pots and pans first though. I also need a small roasting pan so I can make stuff in the oven. I might  even get some corning wear as well. I know that I am going to need some mixing bowls with lids and such. I need some good tupper ware to store food in and so much more.

I have been putting aside money for this for a while now and have save up quite a bit. I didn’t realize just how much until I checked the account I set up for it. Now I can really go hog wild and buy all new stuff. Some of it I can get cheap at Walmart, but others I plan on paying a little more for.

So fucking full

OMG I am so fucking full. We went to Joe’s Crab Shack to eat and pigged out for hours on blue crabs. I absolutely love blue crabs. I don’t know why, but they are one of my favorite things to eat. I also love Alaskan Snow crab legs as well, but there is nothing like sitting with friends and picking blue crabs for hours. It’s about atmosphere as well as the food, and the company you eat with. You have to go to a place like that with people who love to eat blue crabs as much as you do. If someone doesn’t like to eat them, they get bored and it kid of ruins the whole experience when they keep asking if you are done yet so you can leave.

Fortunately for me, I have some great friends that love it as much as I do and we had a lot of fun. Pitchers of beer and mound of crab legs to pick and lots of really good conversation make for a wonderful night. Now that I am home, I am just trying not to move too much because I am so stuffed. I know that I am going to sleep really good tonight, that’s for sure.

Music festivals

I fucking love the music festivals that go on every summer. They are just about to start this year and I cannot wait to go. Memphis in May begins soon and we are all going in one large group. This is one of my fucking favorite festivals out of all of them. We have decided to camp instead of staying at a hotel since two of my friends have campers and the rest of us have tents to sleep in. I will take my tent, but since it is just me, I will probably not have to use it. That is fine, because I have some friends who don’t have a tent and they will more than likely use mine.

Camping will save us money on a lot of food and such. We can make breakfast each morning and dinner at night. The only food we will have to buy will be lunch where ever we happen to be at the time. Since the festival is about music and art and stuff, there is no telling where we might be. I am so stoked to be able to go this year, because last year I didn’t make it to this festival. I cannot wait!

Gator tail for lunch

April 9, 2012 // Posted in Eating Out, Living, Outdoors, People, Vehicles (Tags: , , ) |  Comments Off on Gator tail for lunch

I am so going out to the Everglades today for an airboat ride and some gator tail. There is a place called Coopertown that has been there forever. It was the first airboat ride ever out there and is still owned and operated by the same family. I have been going there since I was a little kid. They make the absolute fucking best alligator tail there is and their frog legs are to die for as well. It seems like a little spot in the middle of no where, but it is so much fun to visit.

Sometimes I take the regular boat tour with all of the other tourists, but every now and then I take an all day tour on one of their private boats that is much smaller and faster. They take us out to different spots on the private tour that are much farther out. There is one place they call the Duck Club. It is a hunting camp with a house on it and it is very peaceful and pretty to visit. I make sure I take lots of pictures when I go. I really enjoy taking pictures of the wild life out there and I always see something new when I go.

 

Fuck yea

Finally the water is warm enough to swim here. I fucking love to go to the creek to swim and hang out in the sun with friends. There is a rope swing and a swim hole that is just deep enough to have fun. I make sure to pack chips and sandwich stuff in case we get hungry as well as soda’s in the cooler to drink. It is not easy to get to the swimming hole we go to. The banks are really steep and getting up and down them can be a pain but are totally worth it.

There was a dog there this past weekend. She stayed in the water trying to catch fish the whole day while we were there. It was so cute. Every now and then, she would go to a shallower part and try to catch crayfish. I have never seen a dog do anything like that before in my life. She must have lived nearby though, because she had a collar with a tag on it and around five o’clock she left. If she hadn’t had that collar we probably would have taken her home with one of us. She was so sweet. I hope she is there next weekend if we go.
