Photographers I Can’t Stand

I can’t handle the majority of photographer who receive laudatory comments in the press or on social media. In particular, I hate street photographers, they are the worst. In the guise of art, they travel the world spending large amounts of money to document people looking poor on the street.


That is an oversimplification but I still dislike street photography.

Hotelier Life For Me

I’m old and tired. I now work in a hotel. This is nicer than working in human services because people smell better and are a lot less likely to physically harm me.


Here are some tips:

I’m totally judging you but I don’t care. You probably care more than I do.

Complain about something or the price and I’m going to listen but not going to do anything for you.

If you are nice I will upgrade your room. If you aren’t, “we are full.”

Join the rewards club. We will bend over backwards to help you.






StufZ Burger Review

I’m old and miserable. That should come as no surprise to the two bots who read this blog. The other weekend my gorgeous friend and I decided to experiment with the StufZ Burger Press. It was fun.

I had this amazing delusion that the StufZ Burger Press would allow me to turn ground beef into an amazing vessel for culinary wonder and delight. I was nominally correct.

StufZ Burger Press Review


My goal was to take what I learned in the fancy online Harvard food science (that I failed) and apply it to stuffing ground beef full of flavor.

StufZ Burger Press Recipes

Kraft Dinner Stuffed Burger

I made mac and cheeze from a box and put it into the burger. I was hoping it would be amazing and a canadian delicacy worthy of publication in Canada’s most popular food blogs. It was not.

Tater Tot Burger

What would happen if I stuffed a burger full of cheese and tater tots? The answer is deliciousness. Do this and do it often and you will be very happy. Also, probably fat.

Inside Burger 

I thought it would be fun to deconstruct the burger and take everything that you would normally put on top of the burger and use the StufZ Burger Press to put it inside. Yum! This burger was actually pretty awesome. Next time I’d add more relish to the StufZ Burger Press recipe.

Brie & Onions

This StufZ Burger Press was pure class. Caramelized onions and generic brie were pretty fantastic in this StufZ Burger Press recipe.


StufZ Burger Press Tips

Ok. Our first attempt at using the StufZ Burger Press was a huge failure comparable to the launch of Crystal Pepsi. I would highly recommend watching a video on youtube on how to use the StufZ Burger Press because it isn’t as easy as it might seem. I would also recommend using low fat ground beef because otherwise you will have a grease disaster on your hands.

TL:DR: StufZ Burger Press is pretty awesome but watch an instructional video before you use it and use low fat ground beef.

I started salting my coffee because I’m awesome

Salt in your coffee! Gross, right? WRONG!!!




I started salting my coffee after failing my Harvard food science class. The salt does a better job of masking the bitterness of coffee while actually enhancing the flavor you are supposed to be able to taste.  The key is to add salt a little at a time so that you don’t end up drinking java flavored dead sea water. I usually do just a few grinds of sea salt but my salt grinder. It will surprise you how amazing it tastes.

Don’t order the cheap steak

Recently, I found myself with my family at a local steakhouse of nominal renown. They are known for their steaks, old bay shrimp and ancient clientele. I decided I would be frugal and order one of the less expensive steak options on the menu and it was a huge failure.
