|The Twilight Cast's final year at Comic Con|
As many of you realize, the Olympics are in London this summer and when I was in London in early June, the city was celebrating the Queen's Jubilee, but there was also a significant pre-Olympics presence on display around the city. The Olympics start on July 27th, and the latest ridiculous news I heard is in regards to McDonald's monopolization/sponsorship of the games by sending out a mandate that no other food vendor can sell fries to patrons in town during the Olympics because they must only be allowed to eat McDonald's fries. They are BANNING other vendors from selling fries. Can you believe this shit? However... unless someone is buying the English meal standard of Fish & Chips, then they can order that with the traditional thick and chunky chips, but any other meal where fried potatoes is on the menu to be ordered, they cannot serve that as it will be in unfair competition to the holy sponsor, McDonald's! So if you were to order a hamburger from one of the few hundred other small vendors, they cannot sell you fries to go with that!!! I haven't eaten at McDonald's in probably two years. I try to eat healthy, like sushi, Luna bars, smoothies, and salads, etc. The last time I ate there, I got sick... my stomach had a hard time processing the highly processed salty food and I felt like I had lead in my stomach. Then being stupid, a month later, I ate at a different McD's thinking that I just ate something bad. Nope, same reaction. I think my Bikram yoga and healthier eating has made my body more 'efficient' and when I eat something shady, my body reacts to it. Lesson learned, I just stick to healthy foods.
Although my blog is just a week old, this has been something I wanted to establish months ago. Today, I bought the domain http://www.theatreofzen.com/ so that the blog could be more legitimate and professional. And in buying my domain, it demonstrates my commitment to maintaining this blog, and giving it an officialness to it. If you haven't already, please 'follow' the blog so that you can get updates when new articles are published, and feel free to 'share' any of the articles with friends at Facebook, Google+, or followers at Twitter, by clicking on the share options below each article. It takes a long time to get a blog up and running, and along with my own promoting of it, I need the help of readers to promote it too, especially if they like what they read. Thanks!
