A Chubbier Nephew, Lorain, and A Christmas Tradition.

By:

The Dude on the Right

So I’m home from home for the holidays and

what better way to celebrate than with a podcast
. As Christmas is always an
interesting trip to the old country of Lorain, OH, it occurred to me again that
whoever let a railroad be run along the lake front failed to see the future
value of said lake front in Lorain, especially with the loss of the Ford plant
and the reduction of the steel mill. But that wasn’t really the shock, what was
the shock was the weight gain of my nephew. I know he looks up to me, Uncle
Dude, but he shouldn’t try to look like me!  My niece gave me some bling
for a present, my mom was in the hospital (which sucks on one hand but had her
missing a blow-out on the other), and my Christmas tradition of taking my under
17 year old niece to an R-rated movie continued for the last time (next year
she’ll be 17) with a trip to see "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet
Street."

And in a story probably missed by many, even me, there was a death in
2007 of one of the most important people to affect the life of college students
everywhere – Momofuku Ando. If you want to know why, you’ll just have to listen.

I hope to do one more podcast for 2007 reflecting on this upcoming weekend
where I hope to see four movies, will probably watch the Chicago Bears win but
still suck, and maybe hint at my resolutions for 2008.  Then again, I might
just clean my fish tank.  We’ll see.

Thanks for listening and Happy New Year!

That’s it for this one!  I’m The Dude on the Right!!  L8R!!!

    Could you make me seem any fatter? Gain 10 pounds over the year and everyone things you are a hippo! Cut me some slack on the Steak & Shake! There aren’t any here so I get it is very seldom I get to indulge in the oh so wonderful Chili Mac Supreme (With no onions). What’s not to love about that amazing greasy goodness they call chili covered in cheese and thrown on pasta =) I can feel my arteries clogging just thinking about it! I promise next time you see me I’ll be back down to my sexy self.
