Un-Rant: Things I Like

As you know, I like to rant.  Especially when it comes to Dancing With the Stars and everything else.  Every once and a while I like to take a break from ranting.  Sure, ranting is fun but ranting can be tiring.  Just like sex.  Today I’d like to take a break from ranting and write about some things that I like.  It may not be as funny as making jokes about Pamela Anderson’s boobs, but what is?

Inspiration
Recently, several of my friends have been focusing on improving their health.  There’s a group of people in pH that are going to be doing a Biggest Loser type fundraiser in the next few months.  Two different couples that I know have been on a health kick for the past year or so and it’s really paying off for them.  My buddy Sean has been working out consistently for a long time and the last time I saw him he was built like a brick wall.  I’ve even got a couple of friends like Brian and Michelle who blog about it. 

That shit is awesome and it inspires me.

These guys work hard and bust their asses to get themselves into shape.  Everyone does it in a different way but they do it in a way that works for them.  It doesn’t matter how they do it, it matters that they are doing it.  It makes me work harder.  It makes me eat better.  When I feel like I want to skip a day, I go read Brian’s blog or I think about Dee’s best friend going on a bike ride and I suck it up and hit the gym.

You guys rock.

Delicious
Chipotle Tabasco.  Have I mentioned this before?  Chipotle Tabasco is delicious.  I’ve never been big on spicy foods but now that I’m old and my sense of taste is fading, I need something to make me feel alive.  Chipotle Tabasco makes me feel alive.  It tastes good on just about everything — even chocolate cake.

Useful
The Chipotle iPhone app.  Yeah, I’m all about Chipotle-type things.  Sue me.  Anyway, this app is totally worth the price of FREE.  It’s real simple, you find the specific Chipotle you want to order from and you order your food.  It then gives you a time to pick it up and you walk straight to the register and get your food.  It doesn’t sound awesome, but when you want a burrito during lunch rush from the Chipotle on Madison you can either wait in line for 15 minutes or you can skip past all those schmucks and get your food right away.

Don’t forget to put Chipotle Tabasco on it before you leave.
