Gucci Sneakers

Wow, these Gucci sneakers were over the top!


Thick, thick soles and built up sides. 


A strap adorning the sneaker with colored-stones (faux gems). 


Very heavy with a durable kick-a*s feel. 


All for $1,590 at Bloomingdale’s.


As we joke as kids with a eastern European “old country” droll, “It’s a bargain!” 😉

Indian Food All You Can Eat–Is That A Good Thing?

Indian Food

So after we couldn’t find the Amazing Maze today, we went to this all you can eat buffet of Indian food. 


Nice, clean place…


Food is set out finely in metal trays over burners. 


My wife says, “What a bargain!”


The problem is I can only eat vegetables, and it’s all the heavy Indian type. 


I am a good boy with the diet–NO carbs–and pass on the pastry fried samosas, the hot leavened nan, the thin stir-fried noodles, and even on the quality orange basmati rice.


What’s left for me on my plate?


– Chick peas and sauce.


– Green peas and sauce.


– Eggplant and sauce.


– Creamy saucy spinach, just a tad.


– Sweet finely-chopped mushy carrot halava. 


Each wasn’t bad, but wait this isn’t balanced–lots of mushy veggies in a superbly gross buttery way–all sort of just swooshing around without any substance food to soak it up. 


I need a Starbucks or sugar Coke to wash this all down and away–not enough time though…


Oh G-d, I want to make a big Indian buffet puke (even technology can’t save me from this)! 😉
