Happy…Thanksgivikah?

Hey, look who’s FINALLY posting!

It’s been a while, but The Big Cheese and I both figured it was a fitting time to post. We all know we’re thankful that I’m back, am I right?

*cue laugh track*

*cue crickets*

*awkward silence*

Regardless!

On behalf of everyone here at JustWroteABlog and NekkedSnake.wordpress.com, we’d like to ask you to watch this video.

(As well as have a wonderful, Happy Thanksgiving weekend. Safe shopping, fun partying, best wishes.)

Earworm: “Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac

Top Gear series 19 episode 2 featured in their ‘Star in a Reasonably Priced Car‘ drummer and namesake of Fleetwood Mac, Mick Fleetwood.

During the interview, Jeremy talked about the success of the band and the history of their best selling album, Rumours. I never learned so much about the history of one album in such a short span of time.

A song that I’ve heard countless times before, Go Your Own Way, was mentioned, and it’s been stuck in my head ever since.

Here it is.

Upcoming this week (from Cheesecake)

With a lot less time due to midterm week, I have no been able to post as regularly as I’d have liked.

That’ll change starting tomorrow, as I have quite a few things in store.

Expect an in-depth review of a video game that has been infuriating The Big Cheese and I as of late, a few Earworms, and a personal rant about high school.

Cheesecake is probably my single most favorite piece of dessert, EVER.  I need to have different cheesecakes at different places whenever possible.  I’ve had hundreds of slices all over, and while some are better than others, nothing really stood out.  None was perfect, until that faithful weekend in May of 2009.  It was during a trip to Philadelphia, to eat at Morimoto’s restaurant, we had some hours to kill before our scheduled reservations for dinner that night, so my friend and I took a tour around Philly.  We stumbled upon Darling’s Famous Homemade cheesecakes, and I just needed to try this place.  They had a variety of flavours, but I ended up picking the Banana’s Foster Cheesecake.  I also have a thing for Banana flavoured foods.

That first bite was just magical, I have found at the time the perfect cheesecake.  It’s funny too, that I found it in Philly, and not in NYC.  Each silky smooth creamy bite easily glided down my throat, that hint of banana flavour tickling my taste buds, just utter epic-ness.  Dare I say, I had a mini-crisis while eating this perfection.  I must admit, it wasn’t much too look at, but like a book, never judge it by it’s cover.

Sadly, this was unseated earlier this year as the best cheesecake.  That throne now belongs to a place up in Vancouver.  Maybe another time, i’ll tell you about it.
