  • One of the local stations plays a lineup of Boston Legal, She Spies, and the "new" Outer Limits at like 1AM on Mondays. I'm there every week.
  • McDonald's Steak Egg and Cheese Bagel - I don't even want to know what the nutritional information for one of these is.

Some of mine:

 

-Gibbles Cheese Curls - Heaven in a bag but man I have to force myself to stop eating them.

-Showgirls - awful movie? Yes. Fun to watch? Yes.

-Mcdonalds Sausage, Egg, and Cheese biscuits - Agreed on not wanting to know the nutritional information and I've almost completely stopped eating fast food in the past 6 months but I can't help but get one of these every other week or so.

Oh boy. Here we go.

 

- Blind Date. For some reason I love this show.

- Rip Rolls. Evil little sour chewy things.

- Hot dogs. Ketchup, mustard, Hebrew National. Done.

- Real World / Road Rules challenge. I love hating those kids.

Meh, if you can limit yourself like this, then you are doing better than 98% of America. I've seen Super Size Me and read Fast Food Nation and pretty much avoid fast food...but dammit, once a month I need me a fat, juicy Whataburger and fries. For you yanks, Whataburger is a Texas-based chain with locations throughout the south. When I'm out west, I go for In-and-Out Burger...mmmmmmmmmm.

I've seen Super Size Me

It's the documentary that all but put me off of fast food completely. When I worked for Sprint, I ate at Mcdonalds every other day due to it being the easiest and quickest method of getting food for lunch/dinner since I had to be at work for 12 hours a day. As soon as I left, I had to go through a detox period of trying not to eat the stuff and it was difficult for me.

 

I then sat down one night to watch this little documentary my wife rented called "Super Size Me". Afterwards, I pretty much couldn't look at a french fry or a Big Mac in the same way. I almost vomit at the thought of any fast food anymore. That biscuit sandwhich is my only remaining vice.

 

I can't say that I miss any of it either.

It's a really great film, and I think it's really had an impact as evidenced by your story. I have never been huge into fast food, but like I said, it's a once a month thing MAX for me now, and even then I'm very picky as to where I go. I refuse to support McDonald's since a) their food makes me feel like I just ate a chemical factory, my stomach tells me so and B) I don't care to support their business practices and philosophies at all.

 

I highly recommend reading Fast Food Nation, it's an entertaining read and really makes you see how much McDonald's has damaged the American beef and potato industry. Now, I'm surely no vegetarian, but there is something to be said about eating meat from ONE animal as opposed to THOUSANDS, and the freshness and quality of said meat.

 

I learned among many things that Jack in the Box is one of the safest places to eat since they are very stringent about checking their meat for disease ever since one of their restaurants in the northwest killed a bunch of people with ecoli (remember that?) Not that their food does much for me tastewise, though. In-and-Out Burger is a fantastic chain, I wish we had them in Texas. They pay their people very well and give full benefits, and as such have very low turnover and are very profitable...they expand very slowly, organic growth, as opposed to opening thousands of locations like Macca's so they maintain their standards and quality. And best of all, they buy the highest grade beef, bake their own fresh buns in the store each day, and the fries are made from hand-peeled potatoes each day. It really shows, the food is just heavenly.

 

Sorry to hijack the thread, this is just a very interesting topic to me and one I enjoy discussing. ;)

Movies:

 

1. "Men at Work" -- Every single time this movie is on, I have to watch it. It's stupid as hell, but I find it funny in spite of itself. Favorite quotes:

 

"There are some things in this life that are sacred, and one of those is another man's fries!"

 

"Aww, somebody threw away a perfectly good white boy."

 

"You will swing for this, I shit you NNNNOOOOOTTT!"

 

2. "Roadhouse" -- I have no good reason to watch this movie, but dammit, if it's on, I'm watching.

 

Food:

 

Jack in the Box Tacos -- They are only tacos in the academic sense, but after midnight on the way home from a night of drinking, there is nothing better. And they are ALWAYS 2 for 99-cents, you can't beat that!

 

Music:

 

Just about anything with horns. Huey lewis...Hell yeah! A good horn section in ANY band and I'm listening.

 

 

Carlos.

Hahah...I personally never liked those things, but I have friends who are the same way...their favorite late night drunken stop. I've never understood how they could legally get away with calling those tacos.

 

My favorite drunken late night food is Taco Cabana's queso and fresh tortillas. Ohhhhhh so good. Which is funny, because I never go there for any other reason, their food is absolutely forgettable.

Movies:

 

Kung Pow: Enter the Fist. On Metacritic it has a 14/100, and is ranked #36 on the worst scores list (Rollerball being at #37, Glitter at #32 and the Dungeons and Dragons movie at #33 - to give you an idea of its critically acclaimed neighbors on the list).

 

I know it's bad but it was somehow amusing anyway...the movie was intended to be bad, after all.

 

 

Also K-Pax. Much maligned but I liked the concept, and the way the movie left it kinda open-ended.

 

Food: Taco Bell. We eat way too much taco bell. Chicken Baja Chalupa, Spicy Chicken Burrito, or the standard greasy taco. :D

 

Music: I confess a guilty liking for Jewel, wore off from my wife. My wife said Jewel was her favorite singer, until that pop album came out (what a pile of crap). I took a liking to a lot of her songs as I heard them over and over through the years as my wife played them. Same thing, with Damien Rice.

 

Book: Piers Anthony's Incarnation of Immortality and Phase books. I know Piers writes some repetitive junk (Xanth books past about book 6 or so) but I have a liking for a few of his series. This lingers from childhood when I read them in 6th/7th grade.
