Why does it feel like it's been four months since I've done a Snippet Wednesday? Before you say, "because it has been four months since you've done a Snippet Wednesday" I would like to point out that it's only been four weeks, not four months.
Still bad no matter how you look at it, though.
Well, I found out the name of another neighbor and I'm not likely to forget this one... ever. Her name is Carol and she lives in the end unit of the next building down from us. So, basically, I've one-upped my New Year's Resolution in this regard. The only problem is that I found out her name from the cop who knocked on our door last night asking if we had the phone number for our homeowners association so he could let them know he had to break into her home last night through a window after her daughter saw her lying dead on the floor through said window. Carol only moved in about a month ago. R.I.P.
The new broadcast TV season is upon us and there are some decent ones (The New Normal and Vegas), some stinkers (Last Resort), and several on which the proverbial jury is still out (Partners, Revolution, and Guys With Kids). And then there's one I expected to pretty much suck and I find myself actually enjoying it. That would be the new Matthew Perry sitcom Go On. He's a sports radio host named Ryan King whose wife was killed in a text-and-drive accident and he's trying to adapt to his new life through group therapy. Is it great? No. But it's proven to be a lot of fun and it has a decent support cast in John Cho, Laura Benanti, and my personal favorite, Tyler James Williams (the young Chris Rock of Everybody Hate Chris). In a way, the comedy reminds me of the slightly off-the-wall nature of shows like Cougar Town and yet it still has heart. This last episode, in which Ryan's wife comes back as a spirit to give him guidance, was pretty well done. Yup, we'll keep watching.
How's this for a news headline... "Cops seize pot plants near Bishop Ford: 'Big as Christmas trees'"? Yeah, that happened here in Chicagoland. TWO FREAKIN' FOOTBALL FIELDS WORTH OF POT PLANTS!! I've got money that says someone is going to vandalize the street signs near where this discovery was made… Stony Island. A propos, no?
A group named Market Force Information recently unveiled their findings regarding Americans' favorite burger chain. The winner? Five Guys. Followed by In-N-Out, Fuddruckers (they still exist?), A&W, and Smashburger. I'll be honest, I'm not a big fan of Five Guys. They're decent, but certainly not the best. I do agree on the placing of In-N-Out, A&W, and Smashburger, though. However, I'm disappointed that one of Katies and mine personal favorites, Steak 'n Shake, didn't place higher than seventh out of 16. S'nS never fails to have incredibly fresh and well-cooked burgers be it dining in or going through the drive-thru window. LOVE THEM!

But to placate you, here are some more photos of Nathan...
And my personal favorite...
Well that's all I've got for you this fine, rainy Wednesday. Have a great day!
