Blargh! September 30, 2012

Ok, so I totally forgot all about my blog. Considering that I’m writing 2 books, working on 2 albums, running my freshly minted coaching business, planning my website, day trading forex, reading 5 books at a time, learning real estate, getting a plant-based nutrition degree from Cornell, working hard to put on 30 pounds of muscle mass, and studying all kinds of stuff related to coaching, nutrition, fitness, health, and NLP–it’s not too surprising that writing my blog has fallen off.

Recently though, I decided to start writing articles and updating my blog again. It might even be more regular than once every 2 years haha!

 

My Favorite Beverage January 30, 2010

Have you ever played that game where you and your friends decide which movies/albums/etc you would bring if you were going to be stranded on a tropical island?

Well I’ve played a variation on that game where we decide what we’d want to drink if we were in the desert dying of thirst, and just when we were about to keel over, we reached an oasis–replete with beverage bar. Over the years, my answers have changed: at one point, I thought skim milk was the most refreshing beverage on the planet. Ugh! What was I thinking? Of course, when I was 13 I used to drink soy sauce just to gross people out, so maybe I wasn’t the brightest bulb back then.

 

 

Anyway, after milk I decided that a nice, cool glass of orange juice with crushed ice sounded like heaven after a long slog through the saharan desert (or any desert, really). That one stayed at the top of the list for years, until I got acid reflux disease. Then I suddenly had very little interest in acidic orange juice, so I switched over to my new pH balancing beverage of choice: Mineral water with fresh lemon juice.

Mmmmmm, now THAT is the most refreshing beverage on the planet, I tell you. I’ve tried most of the popular brands of mineral water, and limes instead of lemons as well. I like all the mineral waters that I’ve tried, but my favorite is still San Pellegrino, followed closely by San Faustino.

So what’s your favorite thirst-quenching beverage after a long day’s trek through the burning sands?

Homework done for the day, so I’m gonna chat you up a little bit. I watched an awesome movie this week called “Fantastic Mr. Fox” by my favorite director, Wes Anderson. In case you don’t remember who he is, he did Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic, and The Darjeeling Limited.

For Fantastic Mr Fox, he did some bizarre type of stop animation technique that makes everything look a little creepy at first, but it grows on you (at least it grew on me). For the first 10 minutes I hated it, but by the end of the movie I was in love. I especially loved the scenery, the colors, and Jason Schwartzman’s character–Ash. Especially when he had his sockhat on.

 

 

Ash with sockhat: Feel the powah!

What may be even cuter than Ash with his sockhat on is this guy’s dog I found on Flickr:

Fantastic Mr. Jake
