Domino's New Recipe

So Mrs. Rico and I tried Domino's' brand new pizza recipe last night. A few thoughts:
  1. It's significantly better than the old recipe. From the time I brought it in the door, the aroma was strong and tantalizing. The first bites were promising, as both the sauce and the cheese were much more flavorful than the old crappy Domino's.
  2. The crust was significantly better as well. As Mrs. Rico perceptively observed, it's flavoring is reminiscent of Papa John's garlic butter dipping sauce. Presumably, it's quite fattening.
  3. I would now rank Domino's slightly behind Pizza Hut and slightly ahead of Papa John's on my Big 3 pizza rankings.
  4. We decided to get the pizza after seeing an ad for it during the Packers-Cardinals playoff game. Big mistake. Approximately 47 million Wisconsinites saw the same commercial and got the same idea, causing a long delay once Jake and I got to the store.
  5. Colbert had a pretty funny piece on Domino's candor in its new campaign.
I give the new recipe a Gentleman's B. Given how hard they've pushed this advertising campaign, it was ultimately a little disappointing. Still, any efforts to improve the amount of cheap, quality pizza in this world must be applauded and encouraged. So I salute you, Domino's.

I'm back!

Given Big Jim's heroic effort to keep the blog alive in my absence, I decided I must also devote a few moments to this wonderful site. And what subject could bring me out of my long hibernation? Why, my favorite subject of all, Magical Me!

More specifically, I'm here today to talk about my hair and how awesome it's become in recent months. I had decided to grow it out a bit a while back. It was a last-ditch attempt to stick it to the man before going to work for the man. And now the results are glorious.

I have two basic looks that I can run with. I can walk out the door after a shower without doing anything to it, whereupon I become a dead ringer for comedian and Daily Show correspondent John Oliver. It's a good look for most social occasions and informal gatherings.

Not bad, right?

But when I need something a little more businesslike, I can rock the side-part. This is where it gets even more awesome. I have really thick hair, and now that it's long as well, there's just all sorts of luscious volume when I comb it to the side. In fact, you might say I have Lego Hair.


(Now that my youngest child is almost six months, I'll try to resume a semi-regular blogging schedule.)
