So Vin, what have you been up to?


I am little red from all the sun over the weekend. And my next hurts. I've been sleeping in front of the fan on full blast. And I alternate between my bed and the my couch as the air conditioner is in the living room. I had a bizarre dream but I couldn't remember most of it. It was something about a chicken and fluorescent light while shopping in Costco. Odd. I did have trouble sleeping but I do feel refreshed today. I took three Advil to relieve my neck pain. The rest of my body does feel sore as I began to work out a little bit finally. I did some push-ups and sit-ups. But I got dizzy after 50 push-ups. But they are all baby steps. I have to lose my gut for this bikini weather.

Not too much more going on. I am on vacation for 8 days starting Friday. I am going to wedding in Maryland. Then kicking around NYC and Jersey City for a few days. I'll probably lounge in my parents pool for a few days too. I also have a stack of movies to watch: Superbad, Before the Devil Knows Your Dead, The Air I Breathe, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, In A Lonely Place and The Family seasons 1, 2 & 3.

Also, there is a restaurant in Manhattan that serves Haggis and Blood Pudding. A friend of mine who is Kenyan is a seasoned vet at eating Haggis. So we may go next week and wash it down with some good Scotch. Yummy. Hmmm, I may go a Yankee game to on vacation. But I will probably grow my beard out and wear a conductors hat so I will look like Micky-T come July.

And...Ahh....no that's it.

Cinder-single,

Haggis is pigs guts. Blood pudding is harden pig or lambs blood in a sausage. Any questions?

Doc said...

Dude, for someone who brings up haggis all the time you don't even know what it is. ROTFL !!!

Micky-T said...

Blood pudding sounds awesome Vin.
I grew up with blood sausage, squid, eggplant and my mom cracking open bones and sucking the marrow out. I still do occasionally, suck marrow. One time coming home from school, there was a big pot on the stove, I always went right to the stove to see if there was something I could pull out right then, I lift the lid and there was a complete scull of a deer. Eyeballs, brain and tongue was on the menu. Nothing I could pull right out! Ha! [truth]

So, seriously are you planning to wear a bikini? Because well there is just something not right about that. Have a grand vacation though, we all need that once in awhile!

Micky-T said...

blood sausage = blood pudding = black pudding = black sausage = boudin noir
Notes: These eggplant-colored sausages are made of pig's blood mixed with fat, a filler like bread crumbs, and other flavorings that vary from region to region.

I kinda felt they were one and the same.

Wisconsin state epidemiologist James Kazmierczak says "you could live on a diet of deer brains and never get sick."

New I'd find something!

Doc said...

I am not sure I want to keep reading... YUCK!

Micky-T said...

Sorry Doc, I'll stop now!

I did find some good vids and pictures though!

Karen said...

Vin, after Friday I am on vacation until July 7th. I cannot wait.

I am just putzing around home and spending some time at my dad's shore house. I am really looking forward to having time to just relax.

Karen said...

Ummmm Micky T, We are NEVER having our blogger bbq at your house. YUCK.

The Mountain Cat said...

Sassy, Yes. I have this little two piece that is dead sexy.

Micky-T, I want you around if I ever get lost in the woods.

Karen, I am chilling next week in my parents pool in Ocean County. This will be the summer of The Mountin Cat!!

Doc said...

This will be the summer of The Mountin Cat!!

FYI - He says that every year... LOL!

Miss Merry Sunshine said...

Fucking gag...

Oh and I'll save you 2 hours of your life...go ahead and skip Before the Devil Knows Your Dead. It drug on forever and Ethan Hawke needs a sammich.

Micky-T said...

I was expecting much, much more...
Yuck and Gag and Gross!

Hey my momma and her momma grew up in a small Sicilian village on top of a mountain. You think they're picky about their food and wasteful. NOT!!!

As American as Apple Pie said...

And you people pick on me for cheese curds? NASTY!!!

Lu' said...

Haggis looks like some big critters nuts, ick. Hey Mt Cat, did you ever answer Dice's question about some one who might be interested in taking her to a Yankee's game and Coney Island. Hey she rocks and is great fun.

aaaaPie I could see cheese curds coming out of the Haggis. I think I;ll go puke now, HA! WAIT, I THINK I SAW THEM BREATH!

The Mountain Cat said...

Lu', who is Dice? When? where?

leapofaith said...

I've been MIA for a bit and the first post I come back to read is this one...started out funny - just typical Vin that I get to enjoy Mon-Fri! ...and in the end, I'm just grossed out. Blah! :-P

(LOL!)

Jay said...

They let you take vacation days? That's crazy!

Chow down on the Haggis dude. It's delicious!

Matt-Man said...

Ick...Go heavy on the Scotch and light on the Haggis. Cheers!!

Charlene In AR said...

ya'll are too funny! I've been a silent reader for a few months. Finally couldn't stand it anymore and had to start a blog

Mike said...

mmm haggis... Are you going to St. Andrews to eat it? BTW, they'll serve it without the brain and lungs since theres an FDA (USDA?) ban on eating those parts in the US.

Anndi said...

I may never post another funny comment ever again in the fear of being kissed by a haggis eaing mountain cat mouth....
