Boy Versus Food

Thanks to a co-worker, I discovered a new sandwich place. This is no ordinary sandwich shop, however. It is reminiscent of the show Man V. Food (check out the link if you have never seen the show.) The sandwich shop, located on campus, is called "Fat Sandwich Company". DH and I checked out the menu online and decided to give it a try.

The boys were intrigued by the "Build Your Own" option, choosing hamburger, chicken fingers, pizza bites, french fries and ketchup.

We were treated to entertainment while we were there. A college student came in and decided to attempt the "Big Fat Ugly" challenge. He was unsuccessful, but was in good company. The manager told us that they have had made 160 Big Fat Uglies, but only had 2 people succeed in consuming the entire thing in 15 minutes. This young man wasn't even able to finish half the sandwich.

Definately an adventure!

Medical Terminology

-ectomy: Surgical removal

I feel like I have had a homework-ectomy. I looked forward to finishing my portfolio, and the relief of not having so much homework, but now I am dealing with the pain after the "surgery". Specifically, I feel like a part of me is missing. I have defined myself as a grad student and a National Boards candidate for so long, that I feel like part of me is missing. I'm sure that I will eventually come to terms with it, but, right now, I feel like I am having a personal crisis.
