A Microsoft Omelet

The ChallengeWe got a late start today. For some reason we were feeling under the weather. Fortunately, there’s no better cure for party-sickness than breakfast food, and there’s no better source for breakfast food than Beth’s Cafe. They serve a 12-egg omelet there. From one excess to another, I guess! Ben having the self-proclaimed “champion attitude” decided he was gonna tackle it. I’ve never seen so many calories in one place. I couldn’t even finish my 6-egg omelet, but Ben got through at least 90%. Hey, he’s a champion!

We have potentialAfter that we headed up to Redmond to check out the Microsoft campus. They have a visitor center with a bunch of exhibits / installations. Fittingly, about 1/4 of all the exhibits weren’t functioning. Either way it was fun to be in a geek-Mecca. One of their cooler installations let you make a video & email it to all your friends. Having no dignity, this is what I made.

A friend of Ben’s? We could have definitely used an escort to keep the security guys off our backs!

Loved the video - good stuff.

And just for the record, I have defeated the super monster burrito from Freebird’s.

It sounds just like the grossly large burger story from Oh’Mulligans Ben. You were at least 90% there and couldn’t close the deal. I don’t blame you though because the omelet looks like a heart attack waiting to happen.

I wasn’t quite ready for the omelet. I think I could’ve done it were I in better physical condition. That burger, though - dang!

When I get to Austin, I’ll be attacking a “Super Monster Burrito” from Freebirds. I’ve tried at least a half-dozen times, but to no avail ;)

Alexis, your video was crap. I hope you have better luck at the Apple facility. BTW, you need to go take a photo in front of Seattle Grace Hospital (the one where they film “Grey’s Anatomy”.

I’m hurt, I thought that was some of my better work! We’ll see what Apple has in store now that we’re near Silicone Valley. BTW, Seattle Grace is fictional.
