I've made it pretty clear that I like Sonic. For a big evil corporation, they have some amazing burgers. But, Sonic is not Jolly's...

Jolly's, as I have written before, was a classic drive-up burger stand. A no-frills experience consisting of burgers, hot dogs, french fries and some of the best Root Beer I had ever tasted.


Yeah... Recently, Kerrie and I drove up to Jolly's for dinner and found the place empty. Not just Cosmo's style-that creepy owner guy is there-empty but full on, cleaned out, nothing left but the shell of a building empty.

This is, to put it lightly, heartbreaking. Possibly because Jolly's had the best burgers I had tasted since the days of Casey's in BG, or maybe because they have definite plans to tear Jolly's down to build a Taco Bell. That's even more depressing when you think about the fact that there is a fucking Taco Bell DIRECTLY across the street from Jolly's already. WTF?!

On a happier note, Kerrie and I had a beautiful London Broil last night. The kind of London Broil that makes true aficionados of red meat weep with joy and amazement. Sliced thin and paired with pan roasted asparagus and a heaping scoop of mashed red skin potatoes, this was one of those rare meals that proves -without doubt- that life is worth living.

Grilled London Broil

1 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
3/4 Cup Soy Sauce
2 T Worcestershire
2 T Dijon Mustard
2 T Kosher Salt
1 T Ground Black Pepper
1 Cup Red Wine
2 T Parsley Flakes
1/3 Cup Lemon Juice

Combine all ingredients thoroughly. Place meat into ZipLock bag and pour marinade over. Seal bag and refrigerate overnight.

Grill meat over low heat, 10 minutes per side for Rare to Medium Rare. Be very careful of flare-ups.
Although not needed, a slight seasoning of Kosher salt on the meat before it hits the grill doesn't hurt.

Kerrie found this little diddy that rates blogs. I was hoping for an R but also wasn't going to force it. -=SIGH=-

PG-13? Who do you have to fuck or kill around here to get an NC-17?!?!?

First Live Free or Die Hard gets a PG-13 rating, now my blog gets one too? The world is going to Fuck in a Fuck Basket!

If you want, I can write a comment worthy of "Forum"....completely fictional, but all the stories in Forum are fictional anyways (like if those schlubs were really getting fucked that much, they'd take the time to write it down for a lame ass magazine that probably doesn't even pay worth shit).

Or how about if I just drop a bunch of F-bombs. We could just keep adding them until the rating goes up...

fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck.... let's see how that does.

Oh - the salty language above was also to help your rating out...I can't go that far on my blog, since young eyes still stalk me every where I go!!!

Dude, did you know they are building a new Sonic at the Eastgate Mall area off 275 in Cinci? It's about 8 miles from where Tracey's parents live and they noticed the construction going on and a Sonic sign up already. Get into it. I'll be in Vegas in two weeks to see Rush.

I didn't know that, but we've actually never been out that far on 275. The new Sonic will be a little over 25 miles from where we are in Fairfield, and we have one very close in "Hamiltucky".
