Today for lunch I decided to hit up the nearest buffet to work. There's a Golden Corral close by, but I was jonsing for something specific, so I went to Taj of India near the Castleton mall which has an All You Can Eat lunch buffet. The menu is diverse for such a small setting; this time including some Punjabi chicken curry, Chicken Tikki Masala as well as some garlic naan, AND MANGO PUDDING. All you can eat for $8.70, not bad.

So my buddy Ewzzy and I got front row tickets to the Dragon Gate Pro Wrestling event at a Salvation Army gymnasium. So far there's been a lot of trash talk, sweat and tears; not to mention quite a lot of blood. One of the wrestlers went up for flipping kick from the turnbuckle to the floor. The floor is tile, no padding... he hit his head hard enough to give him a concussion and leave a large pool of blood.
The matches were great. I saw a lot of moves you'd never see a
WWE superstar attempt for their own safety. I'm thankful I put on deodorant because the room got so damn hot, I was sweating like a pig.
Still a great night.

WARNING: DO NOT EAT THIS IF YOU HAVE CUT GUMS OR CRACKED LIPS.
I had my first McGriddle yesterday, my mom ordered it instead of a chicken biscuit. Honestly I have never felt more shame while eating until I bit into the amalgam of eggs, sausage, cheese, and bacon enveloped in two maple pancake patties. I walked around Wal Mart for an hour trying to work the sludge out of my system.
Today I decided for a somewhat healthier lighter lunch. So I'm back at Cancun for lunch. Today I'm eating the Ceviche, which is normally an appetizer but functions as a good dish. The whitefish is cured by the acid of lime juice and served with pico de gallo. The avocado slices are nice with it, and then you have your choice of ketchup or hot sauce to top the fish as well as club crackers to scoop the fish (or you can use their fresh tortilla chips.) All for $7.50
My colon thanks you Cancun.

Fringe is returning for it's fourth season on the 23rd. I'm excited, one because I will be buying Season 3 tomorrow when it comes out (along with season 2 of Community,) but I'm also excited because I'm very happy with FOX for staying with the series for as long as it has. We live in a world where the network airwaves are dominated by reality shows and competitions; the scripted series is going the way of the dodo bird.
That success has a lot to do with J.J. and the team of incredibly talented writers/producers who have an understanding of how to tell a deep intricate story with a pacing that does not require us to focus on every single detail (you can still do so if you choose.) The success can also be attributed to the stellar cast; I feel if it wasn't for John Noble, Joshua Jackson and Anna Torv this show would have probably failed like many of the other sci-fi series of the past few years. John Noble and Anna Torv even have been playing multiple versions of the same characters and never faltering in their delivery.

Jonny Quest Opening Titles from Roger D. Evans on Vimeo.
A video popped up on the web that is simply amazing. Kudos to Vimeo user, Robert D. Evans for creating this amazing recreation of the Jonny Quest Opening. HE did it using stop motion animation, which has been used recently in last year's Christmas episode of Community.
Scurbs actor Donald Faison got into Stop Motion animation himself with the youtube video, Black Stormtrroper.
