The McBrownie: I'm Lovin' It

“There is no harm in repeating a good thing.”-- PlatoWell, Plato never got to see the cinematic classics Super Size Me or Reefer Madness.For the un-ordained, Super Size Me is an award-winning documentary chronicling one man’s 30-day consumption of food and beverage, sourced strictly from McDonald’s.  Not surprisingly, he gains weight, becomes irritable, and loses his libido.  He throws up a lot.  The conclusion: McDonald’s is the anti-Christ of food....more

Police Called on a Group of Moms for Lack of Socks at McDonald's

So I took 5 kids plus Jordan to McDonald’s PlayPlace so I could try to load Microsoft Office 2010 onto my sweet new laptop.

Every time I go to McDonald’s (for my id="mce_marker" large Coke Zero), without fail, I find myself standing in line behind the tool who has no idea what they want to order.  Seriously?  Seriously.  Unless you’ve just regained your sight and have never seen the menu board at McDonald’s, then you have no excuse to stand there like an idiot, mouth agape, staring at the menu board.  Zip.  Zero.  Zilch....more

Can You Trust The 'Mommy Blogger'?

Post on my blog all about the truth behind some of the 'mommy bloggers' that are out there. I was kind of shocked but not totally surprised by what I found out about corporate sponsorship and how money seems to be more important to some people than telling the truth about companies.http://foodlies.wordpress.com/2011/08/21/can-you-trust-the-mommy-blogger/ ...more
