Can you see me now? OK, how about now?


Very funny, Doc.  Veeeeeery funny.

I'll be on the phone first thing this morning trying to set up an appointment with an opthamologist.  My right peeper is acting up, and the pain in my ass is unbearable.  That would be due to K kicking me there, pestering me to go see an opthamolgist.  *ouch...yes dear...I prom...ouch...OK, I will...ouch*

A week ago my eye felt irritated, which I thought was just due to the cold and wind.  Some OTC drops didn't help at all.  Then I rubbed them (my bad) and that just compounded the problem.  *sigh*  I'm tired of this.  K's right, I need some doctoring.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The running joke is I'm some sort of raging bacon-holic.  Truth is, yes, I do enjoy some crispy bacon now and then, but that's usually only on Sunday when I have my customary bacon and egg brunch, and occasionally on Saturday if we eat lunch at Central Market.  Then I'll have their BLTA.  That's it.


Turns out the real bacon heavyweights (pardon the pun) are assembling this week at the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City, NJ for their annual Bacon Week celebration.  Check this:

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Get ready for bacon like you've never eaten, drunk or worn it before.
Bacon milkshakes. Chocolate-covered bacon shaped like roses. Bacon-flavored toothpaste, dental floss and lip balm. Bacon bourbon, margaritas, beer and vodka.   Bacon ice cream sundaes. A BLT sandwich with a full pound of bacon.

"Hey baby, can I buy you a bacon margarita?"  I'm guessing the traditional "What's your sign?" would be a better ice breaker.  'Course, that never worked for me back in the day either, so....   :)

Check here for Tropicana Bacon Week news.  (I really couldn't make this up, folks.)

  1. I love bacon as well, but I am down to only an occasional slice for breakfast...turkey bacon at that...if you close your eyes, it is almost like the real thing...sort of...not.

  2. They had to pull Bob Costas off the Olympics coverage with an eye infection, so I guess you've got company there.

  3. Bacon Week at the Tropicana, now that seems like a little over kill. Poor pigs.

    1. Just one? It would feel like an orphan. :(

  5. Hey, you could do some vodka shots, as Costas did last night, saying "My eyes can't get any redder, no matter what I do!"

    1. And after a few you could care less about your red eyes, right? :)

  6. Bacon lip balm? Will that attract guys to girls, or will they think it's like kissing a pig?

    1. It might attract SOME guys, but I'm not sure they're the type you want to attract.

  7. Eww bacon toothpaste! That just seems to defeat the whole purpose of brushing your teeth... I like the idea of bacon better than the real thing. Same with fried chicken. Sounds wonderful. Smells wonderful. But too greasy. Sigh.

    1. I microwave my bacon on a paper towel, and it's perfectly crispy yet drained of almost all the grease. Try it!
