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.
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...
Street meat? I usually have no qualms about eating food off the street, but now that you put it that
During blackout, I ate a can of tuna right out the can. Poured a lil pepper on that sucka and chowed down.
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.
i am so with you man...i won't do the street meat or those hot nuts!
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.
You are infringing on my copy right yo! I came up with that phrase man!
What's up Bro?
Uhhh... y'all should have trekked to NJ for a hot meal with A/C and lights *running and ducking*.
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!
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).
Well my lazy ass was suppose to restock the kitchen the Wednesday before. See, just what I deserve for not following through on promises.
