The Joy of Pork

Posted on Sunday, May 23rd, 2004

Dave!I'm beginning to hate hotels. I can't go to the restaurant because the season finale of Alias is on in just 15 minutes. So I'm off to find a vending machine for dinner. Unfortunately, the machine on my floor is broken. I decided to go to the lobby because the gift shop is open until 10, but they are closing an hour and 10 minutes early (change the damn sign idiots!). So I go up a floor, but there's no machine... I go up another floor to use that one and it too is out of order.

What the hell? Sure this is just a Holiday Inn, but it's a nice Holiday Inn. Things like this shouldn't happen. I shouldn't have to waste twenty minutes buying a snack. When I finally find a working machine on the 4th floor, I find pork rinds mixed among the over-priced goodies for sale. Who in the hell eats pork rinds any more? Who would want to?

So here I sit eating crap that's not pork rinds and watching Alias. As usual, the show kicks ass. It's only been running for 5 minutes and there is already more action happening than in an entire hour in other so-called "action" shows. Oh goody! Marshall just got shot! I hate Marshall! DIE MARSHALL, DIIIEEEEEEEEE!! Yeesh, the opening credits haven't even come up yet! This rocks!

Oooh... now Vaughn has caught up with his very naughty wife. You've been a very bad girl Lauren... I have a feeling this is not going to be pleasant. Yes! Beat her evil ass with the crowbar! Again! Again! DIE LAUREN, DIIIEEEEEEEEE!!

Bummer, Alias is over now. As usual, a terrific cliffhanger ending for the best show on television.

Sigh. I've read that ABC will not start the fourth season of Alias until JANUARY 2005! That sucks, but the good news is that they plan on airing 20 weekly episodes with no interruption. This will be a pleasant change from the way ABC keeps pre-empting the show this past season. And hey, anything is better than cancellation.

I have to get up at 5am for my first flight. Usually this wouldn't be a big deal because I only sleep from around midnight to around 5am anyway, but all this travel has messed-up my already messed-up sleep schedule. I've been sleeping from around 2am to 7am as of late, and so I can only imagine what an unpleasant day I have awaiting me. I should have just gotten it over with and bought the pork rinds.

    Hmmm pork rinds…
    Maybe it is because I grew up in Texas, maybe it is because I am strange, but I love pork rinds. -2 points for Jenny.

    My grandfather used to love pork rinds with hot sauce… but that was ages ago. I thought they had been removed from the American diet due to health considerations, as I hadn’t seen them in years.

  3. Jeffrey says:

    Pork rinds are extremely popular now because of the Atkins diet. Turns out pork rinds are the one snack food that are low-carb to begin with.

  4. Dave2 says:

    Ah, well there you have it. Never mind the fact that pork rinds have a whopping 500mg of sodium per serving (that’s like 20% of the recommended intake or something!) and are loaded with saturated fat… they are LOW CARB, so that makes them good for you! Well, until your arteries have hardened and you have a heart attack. Does anybody know what the long-term effects of the Atkins diet are on the human body? “He may have died at 40 years old… but look how thin he was when he went!”

  5. jenny says:

    Wow finding out they are “low carb” just made me like them less. Sad.

  6. Mahreen says:

    Gosh so you’re no longer a vegetarian! Just How long did you last?

  7. Mahreen says:

    Just noticed this was in 2004 :S So confused
