I'd Rather Go Hungry

Michael Cosentino of Mecca Pixel posted a pic of New Yorkers lining up for street meat during the Blackout of 2003. No thank you. I went without food (besides chunky peanut butter) for two full days.

You know how my mind works. When I saw the phrase "street meat" on my radar, I immediately hopped on over here. Trust me, you'll have a higer appreciation for NY Street Meat if you sampled the offerings in DC. Posted by: nOva on August 18, 2003 11:30 AM
LOL I realized after I wrote this entry that some would get the wrong idea. And that my referrer logs will show a slight uptick in guests looking for some real street meat. Now, 'bout that DC sampling of street meat... Posted by: ronn on August 18, 2003 03:14 PM
Street meat? I usually have no qualms about eating food off the street, but now that you put it that way... Posted by: PatCH on August 18, 2003 06:57 PM
During blackout, I ate a can of tuna right out the can. Poured a lil pepper on that sucka and chowed down. Posted by: lynne on August 18, 2003 08:45 PM
PatCH: You should see the emails between me and my baby. You'd probably vomit just thinking about street meat and your past relationship to it. LOL Lynne: You lucky I don't know where you live. Bruvah was huuuun-greee for two full days. By the time I got home, all the can food was gone. With my sister's advice, I bought several cans of food and non perishable items for the next time. And I do believe we'll have a next time, just not on such a large scale. Posted by: ronn on August 19, 2003 08:50 AM
i am so with you man...i won't do the street meat or those hot nuts! Posted by: kevinrscott on August 19, 2003 10:11 PM
LOL How could I forget the hot nuts?! (Altho I gots to admit: during the Holiday Season, I'm always tempted.) Can't wait to see my stats this month: Street Meat & Hot Nuts. Posted by: ronn on August 20, 2003 08:57 AM
You are infringing on my copy right yo! I came up with that phrase man! What's up Bro? Posted by: RL on August 21, 2003 01:10 AM
Uhhh... y'all should have trekked to NJ for a hot meal with A/C and lights *running and ducking*. Posted by: Bernard on August 25, 2003 11:26 AM
Ain't no need to hide. As long as it took me to get home from work that day, I would have gladly made a run to NJ! Posted by: ronn on August 27, 2003 11:01 PM
I'm amazed so many people did't have any food in the house. I complain about not having any food in my cupboards but there's always *something* in case of an emergency (especially tuna - yum). Posted by: j. brotherlove on August 28, 2003 02:34 PM
Well my lazy ass was suppose to restock the kitchen the Wednesday before. See, just what I deserve for not following through on promises. Posted by: ronn on August 28, 2003 09:21 PM
