the luther in austin

We affectionately refer to this magnificent combination of meat, cheese, and donut as a “Luther” after the hilarious episode of The Boondocks where the community becomes hooked on burgers made with a sliced donut used as a bun.

The Morning X recently had the owners of The Trailer at Gibson on as guests to showcase their Trailer Burger, which they claimed was inspired from an episode of Man v. Food.

They’re currently holding the Texas Size Trailer Burger Challenge: “The Texas Size Trailer Burger is 6 1/4-pound Burgers seared to perfection, topped with 12 slices of American/ Swiss Cheese & 6 slices of Crispy Bacon. Sandwiched between a toasted World Famous Texas Size round Rock Donut.” Jeez! That’s one hell of a gut bomb.

I have yet to try the Trailer burger, but I’m sure I’ll be impressed once I do. Just by gazing into the photo’s allure, my mouth waters for this omnipotent fusion of sweet and savory juxtaposed with the right kind of crunch and necessary grease. I’ll write a real review after one of these forces to be reckoned with if I’m not overwhelmed with the itis. Peace out.

the golden ratio

My first semester back in school after a very long time has finally concluded, and this is the first week since Spring Break that I’ll be mostly free to do what I want to do with my time after work. What am I going to do? Play catch-up, of course.

With my weekdays spent working in the morning into the afternoon and attending class in the evenings, I could only look forward to the weekends to catch up on life, sleep, and everything else in-between that keeps me occupied and happy. With the semester over and a couple weeks before the next round, I can get a few projects already in the works to sync up with my continued quest for education and workaholicism.

I met my goddaughter for the first time over the weekend. She is beautiful, intelligent, and amuses me effortlessly. I’m usually annoyed when people say their infants are smart, because I’m under the impression that most of their behavior is based on their innate abilities as a human being, but I’m going to be biased with this one in particular for the obvious.

This girl has an interesting sense of awareness. She’ll pretend to be asleep, but you can tell she’s paying close attention to every little sound going on around her. She seems so aware when she opens her eyes, and she’ll make you smile when she peeks out of one eye to see what’s going on. She has positive energy radiating from her, and I’m honored to be her godfather.

This post ends here ’cause my bedtime is around the corner. Efficiently prioritizing based on the importance of the bigger picture and not what you think is important is what I’ve learned to be one of the keys to gaining a higher quality of happiness. Peace out.

the samsung led hdtv price drop

The time has arrived when the older TV models go on sale to make room for the newer models. Samsung unveiled their LED TV a couple years ago with a hefty price tag attached. With the 3D models being the hot items right now, finding a 1080p LED HDTV for an irresistible price is only getting easier.

You can get a Samsung 46″ LED HDTV for about $1350 these days. These beautiful screens have everything you need for a true HD experience. Gear up for today’s standard in a visual experience that will leave you wondering why you didn’t throw out your old box sooner.

Add a Blu-ray player to the mix and enjoy the best picture ever delivered on a scratch-resistant disc. Blu-ray discs have dropped in price as well, so you know they’re pushing those dusty DVDs out of the way. Also in the running is streaming movies over the internet in high-definition. If you love chillaxing on the couch to the friendly glow of a TV staring back, then you have no reason to own an LED TV.

Free up some floor space with the slim design and make the most out of a media center with the large display. If you’re spending any more than $1500 on an HDTV that isn’t an LED TV, then you’re spending too much and should rethink your purchase decision.

the purpose of glowworms

You know that feeling you get when the blocks are stacked high in Tetris and you’re about to lose but you try your best to save yourself? Is that how my life is going? Nope. Life to me right now is one Tetris after another.

My last day of the Spring semester is tomorrow. I have a final exam and a project that I need to finish, but they’re in the bag as long as I don’t bomb which I definitely don’t plan on doing. I’ll then have a couple weeks to wrap my head around everything else that’s been on the backburner and savor some ennui a little bit before going back for more brain wrinkles for the summer session.

I’m meeting my goddaughter for the first time this weekend, and I’m really looking forward to it. I haven’t been out of town in months, and this weekend brings an end to the cycle. Will the best barbacoa tacos in the universe be waiting for me when I reach Point B? I believe so.

I enjoy watching my work slowly reach fruition and enjoy the positive energy generated even more. With that said, it’s that time again to work on something else. Peace out.
