Chocolate Covered Bacon: Update

As per my last post, I have made chocolate covered bacon. That is, I made bacon, and then i covered it in chocolate. Not that hard. It turned out quite good, and I shared well. It went over well with others, except Rick, who thought it was too weird. Odd given how close his country is to the land of deep fried mars bars. Oh well, at least he tried it.

X covered Y

Where X = Chocolate, and Y = Bacon.

That's right, chocolate covered bacon. C'mon. It's good! I have been mentioning it to people lately, and no one seems to understand or have heard of this. Chocolate covered bacon! Bacon is good, chocolate is good, not such a stretch of the imagination to imagine that chocolate covered bacon would be good. In fact, I submit to you the possibility that chocolate covered bacon is, in fact, even better than the sum of its parts.

If you are brave and open minded, then let me know, and I will make for you chocolate covered bacon.

Yes We Did.
I know it's cliche to say, but awesome. I'm actually proud, for the first time in my short life, to be an American.

However, amidst all the hope going around, I have to admit some reservation. Not doubt in our new president-elect. I like to think that I have realistically high expectations of him. Though after the past 8 years, he could do a piss poor job and still be amazing.

No, my reservations are actually about my fellow Americans. Yes, we elected an African-American to the presidency, that's pretty awesome. And yes, we elected a person who represents change and hope and finally has the attitude that I can say represents me, as an American, well. However, I don't think it represents as many Americans as I'd like. Many people voted for him because they doubted McCain's ability to turn the economy around. Well that's nice and all, but that's one of the weakest of the many reasons to vote for Obama. Of course, also, many people did not vote for Obama. He won in a landslide, but still 47% of America did not vote for him. Quibble about percentage points, but that's half the country. And that half of the country is still very angry. We are still not a united country, not as united as I'd like.

Just look at proposition 8 in California. It makes me pretty angry. Now when a gay black man... or say, a gay black woman is elected president... Whoa.

Hey, Hope is in the air. Change is on the way.

Howie the dog

As promised, a follow up yesterday's post (read below), here are actual pictures of Howie with mom and siblings:
Howie is the black and white one that looks like a slug (that is, we don't know which is Howie), the litter has three males and one female. Howie is sure to be one of the males.

Howie! Coming to a my house near you

Erin and I are getting a new puppy (not an old one, that wouldn't make sense). Next week we (and maybe you) will be installing a fence in our yard for the puppy (probably going to be named Howie, after the duck). The breed is a Havanese, which looks something like this:

Just kidding. I don't even know who that girl is, but I bet she's tiny. Seriously, a Havanese looks like this:
Kidding again, that's actually MacGuyver. Okay, Havanese:

Which in motion, looks like this:
Of course we won't let Howie grow his hair out like that, we'll keep it short like this:

But Howie will come to us as a puppy, which looks like this:

and in motion, looks like this:

Howie will be black and white. When we get pictures, I'll put them up here. We get full custody in 8 weeks, which is the week of Thanksgiving!

Despite what Erin says, Howie's namesake:
Howard is the one on the right.
