Cheesy Fun in Mystical New Jersey!

402734_3062580411882_938763727_nI love cheesy. Always have, and the cheesier the better. There are an abundance of cheesy things to do in NYC but there is one that is just a bus ride away into the mystical land of New Jersey.

Not too long ago we actually did the most cheesy thing you can do in the tri-state area. Ridiculous amounts of beer, grog, giant souvenir glasses filled with frozen rum and vodka drinks, goofy flags, screaming for kill shots, eating with our fingers, falcons, the king and his court, jousting, sword fights, booing the bad guys, cheering the good guys, knights in fake battles to the death.

Yes kids, we went to Medieval Times!!!

Evilly delicious laughs in NYC

21837512I’m a people watcher. I just can’t help myself. When you live in a city populated with around 19,000,000 people there are just so many things they can do that can go hysterically wrong on a daily basis. Hey, I’m not perfect and can be a klutz at times myself. Yet, being the New Yorker that I am, there are moments when I can’t help but snicker at these hapless victims. It is just so evilly delicious when you come upon moments like these that leave an indelible image in your brain for the day. Yeah, I know it’s kind of mean, but I am wired to be a bit warped that way!

Some of my viewing guilty pleasures –

1) Guys in suits picking up piles of dog crap with their hand in a plastic bag. I even snicker more when it’s a hot sticky summer day out!

2) Women who’s ankles look like they are snapping in half because they are walking in super high heels and don’t really know how to walk in them. Snap, crackle, pop!

Just thinking about pretzels in NYC…..

l (1)I’m just sitting here on the couch tonight watching tv. Kicking back in my sweats and a beer at my side. It’s at times like these watching sitcom reruns that I start to crave some sort of munchies. My inner fattie craves pizza, Fritos, or a whole bag of peanuts, but what I really want dammit is a big-ass hot soft chewy pretzel! Yeah right, now that my ass has molded into this cushion on the couch and I’m all comfortable there is no way I’m getting up to go out and find a hot pretzel. I’m in for the night. It did get me thinking though about some really good pretzels I had lately.

Yup, my mind goes off on weird tangents when it comes to thinking about snacks. Here’s a short list of a few favorite pretzels and related pretzel things I have munched on in NYC.

Junk food TV for the mind!

29260581 Over the years I have grown tired of watching tv. Sure, there are the occasional sitcoms and shows that I will watch such as The Big Bang Theory, True Blood, Game of Thrones, and The Walking Dead which are a few of my favs. Yet, with cable tv now offering literally hundreds of channels there never seems to be anything worth watching any more! It just seems that I get bored easily and few shows can hold my attention. Tons of programming and most of it just lacks quality to me. A bunch of junk! I will literally flip through dozens of channels over and over. Commandeering the remote and driving my gal nuts. I stay up well after midnight looking for something mindless to watch that I won’t have to use too much brain power on. Reality tv is the new reality. This is how I think I became a junk food tv addict!

30471151 Wanna know what I end up watching? Well, here is my list of junk food tv favorites! Put on your white tank top, grab a few cold PBR’s, pull up a lawn chair and enjoy!
