Hot Cheetos & Takis

About a month ago, I heard about a rap song and video that some kids made over the summer that went viral on youtube. The song is called "Hot Cheetos & Takis". I watched it and pretty much forgot about it, although I never knew exactly what the kids meant by "Takis". Well this weekend, I figured it out when I happened to see them at Walmart. Takis are a kind of corn chip snack, the kind of thing you see down in Mexico. I bought a bag to check them out.
I also picked up a bag of Hot Cheetos in order to really experience the snack that these inner-city kids loved so much.
So what are Takis like? Pretty awful. It's like a Frito rolled into a tight tube and saturated in greasy chili powder which is overpowered by an oily, fried aftertaste. Takis are bad, and the people who make them should feel bad.
So when you combine Takis with Hot Cheetos as these kids do, the snack you get is pretty much (bad) x (2). These things don't go well together. They are largely the same thing! I'm left wondering who the parents are letting these kids eat this crap! Let's hope their next hit single is "Capri Sun & Apple Slices". Here's the video in case you haven't seen it.

Circus Day

We won box seats for the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus and had a grand time.  It was all there... trapeze acts, lions, tigers, elephants and even house-styled cats!




 The kids had a great time and so did we!

Happy Labor Day!

Here's some art Jack made earlier this Summer to help celebrate.   He did this, as if you couldn't tell, completely on his own.  Gluing the flag, drawing the picture of himself and his friend Brandon.  I forgot what they are supposed to be holding... sparklers perhaps - or maybe cups.

He now declares that he wants to be an artist when he grow up - in lieu of becoming a garbage man...

Fish Tacos!

It's easier than ever to get a good fish taco in Lincoln. A Southern California joint called Wahoo's Fish Taco has opened in downtown Lincoln. Erin and I had lunch there recently and enjoyed the meal.
It's hard to see the fish under all the toppings, but there was plenty under there. It was some kind of grilled white fish. I got mine cajun seasoned while Erin had the tasty original.
I also noticed recently that yet another fish taco shop called Fuzzy's will soon be opening downtown. Let the fish taco wars begin!
