Adak....

.... the quote of the day today comes from this little video clip...... "and now, we look out on the barren wasteland that is Adak..".... notice the southern wind zipping in his window when he rounds the corner of the building near the end?......... yeah, they didn't call Adak the "Birthplace of the Wind" for nothing..... and no, the "wind" in this post has nothing to do with the burritos that I wrote about yesterday...... ahem........

.... you know, I cannot count the times that I gleefully ate cold cheeseburgers brought back from that now-abandoned McDonalds, folks....... I lived "uptown" (about six miles away) at the foot of Mt. Adagdak.... so we only had McDonald's when someone made the trip and brought us back a bag....... and at the time - even stone cold - those burgers were a treat........

... but in retrospect?.... good god, that place sucked....

Bullshit So Far

That is a hideous looking place. Can't Sarah Palin do something about it? It looks more like "The Birthplace of Flesh-Eating Mutants."

When I was a lowly college student, we used to consider it a huge treat to drive the 20-mile round trip to Trenton (a shit place on the order of Adak) to get 29-cent sawdust tacos at Jack in the Box.

Those tacos were shite, but the alternative was no tacos at all, and so we loved them.

In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king... and in the land of No Tacos Whatsoever, the crappy ones from a fast food joint are a poor man's porterhouse. There's some sort of parallel here with cold Adak McDonald's burgers, but I'll leave you to figure it out...
