A Much Different Kind of Voodoo...

img_38221 So this week, I'm recapping some of the adventures my girlfriend Lindsay and I had road tripping  from Portland all the way back to Madison.  However, I still have to tell you about one place in Portland first: Voodoo Doughnut. I had read about it and wanted to go before we left Portland.  The place did not disappoint. Sure, there are donut shops with some decadent treats, but this place is absolutely crazy. First, let's start with the decor.  It's a small shop where the line stretches outside the door.  They're open from 6am until 2am each day. The walls are covered with rather unusual artwork.  Not only are there crazy pictures on the wall but also obituaries img_3823from famous people who have recently passed away.  Sounds rather creepy, but everything gets even better because the donuts are out of control. img_3829The donuts have everything from cereal to bacon on top!  They even have vegan donuts too.  We went to Voodoo at about 10pm and it was packed.  The line moved rather slowly and I wondered how long it really took to hand out a few donuts to drunk and hungry patrons.  I understand why it took so long.  It wasn't the staff but rather all the customers who couldn't decide what to choose. I ended up with the Triple Chocolate Penetration which was a chocolate donut with Coco Puffs cereal on top.  Lindsay's donut had Fruit Loops on the top.  I can't even remember what our friend Andrea ordered, but her boyfriend Tony got the biggest glazed donut I've ever seen. img_38341 Voodoo was a great experience, but  I'm glad there isn't one in Madison because I think I would be there EVERYDAY.  I'm still craving another donut covered in cereal and it's probably best I can't have it. Although, I do have cereal  in the house.... Tomorrow:  Adventures  from the road as the journey from Portland, Oregon to Madison begins!

Will this be Clapton's last record?

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm. I think I'm pretty happy about that. Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...
