From the Pittsburgh Post Gazette: Rick Marciniak, right, of Stowe, and Forrest Jones, left, of McKees Rocks, measure a 55-by-37-inch pizza at Moma Lena’s Pizza House in McKees Rocks, yesterday. They hope to get the 150-slice “Big One,” into the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s largest commercially available pizza. It costs $99 with one topping. Pizza maker Rob Carrabbia is in the white shirt.
First off St. Patty’s day didn’t break me. In fact we really didnt do much that day. I had my fair share of Irish beer and that was about it. Bowling on the other hand… I blame Griff and Bob for that night 🙂
Things have been busy around here. I’m been spending most of my free time working on the podcast again. The site has been registered and I’ve been playing with a ton of audio that sickpuppy has recorded along with what Griff and I have done. Not sure on a release date for everything but goddamn I’m having fun doing this. I may have to work on another Gray Kangaroo test this weekend.
In other news, I received an email last night that i’ve been selected for beta testing Google’s new Google Page Creator. I must say that the interface is pretty decent and it does make it very easy for anyone, yes even you, to make a webpage. I know this is progress and that’s fine but it does irk me when ANYONE can build a web page. There are enough poorly designed “Homer Simpson Ultimate Webpage” out there (see Simpsons Season 12 Episode 6) and really we dont need more. I tell my dad that he doesn’t need a webpage “just to have one” but that you need a reason for it and not just to rip off what other people have. I understand the desire for everyone to want their own piece of the net but for the love of GOD please keep design in mind… and stay away from Front Page and Word as publishers.
Just got a call from a repair guy that’s going to come look at our oven. He’s hoping to have it fixed today. The hinge on the oven door busted so we had to mess with it to keep it down when taking stuff out of the oven. It had worked that way for awhile until last week when the door flug up as I was baking fries on the cooking stone and put a nice burn slash on my leg. The problem is that the hinge is no longer manufactured and this guy hasnt been able to track down a replacement. I think it’s time for a new appliance.
