Maryam Scoble with breakfast on September 17, 2006

Yummy! Here’s a short videoblog of what Maryam and Robert ate for breakfast today. Just to taunt all those “videoblogging is too hard” types. Posting this was as easy as pulling out my podcasting computer and recording. In fact, to me, it was easier cause my camera is a lot easier to carry around town than my computer is. Note: no editing. Just took video here and uploaded it to Blip.TV (which automatically cross-posted to my blog even). Is it professional? No. But it does show more effectively than a photo what the environment was like that we ate breakfast in.

  1. Hey Robert do you and Maryam want to enter the ‘smash-up’ video contest that I’m doing with GourmetStation? The deal is submit a less than 2 minute video on how you messed up (and got in the dog house) and how you apologized (and got out). Grand prize is over $1000 worth of gourmet meals .. which should keep you out of the dog house for awhile. And I read Maryam so I know you’re in hot water all-the-time

  3. At 1:46am any breakfast-style pan-cooked sweet stuff (be it french toast or pancakes) is wildly appealing.

    Yum. I mean seriously, really, very yum.

  4. The infamous self deceiving words of overweight people who eat irresponsibly and treat their bodies like a trash can:

    “On the other hand, I know people who lived perfect lives and still had heart attacks (exercised daily, didn’t eat anything fun like pancakes or ice cream, etc).”

    Whatever you need to tell yourself pal. That logic is so flawed it is laughable. That is like saying, in your geek terms:

    You:

    “I know my computer has a bunch of spyware, and several viruses but it is running just fine.”

    Observer (trying to help you out):

    “You know that your computer is probably going to crash and you could end up losing all your data one of these days. Probably sooner rather than later. It would probably be a good idea to have all that spyware and those viruses removed. Your computer will be faster and more responsive. You also might want to protect from that stuff in the future by installing some decent anti-virus software, and a firewall.”

    Your way of lying to yourself so you don’t have to think abou the truth:

    “On the other hand, I know people who keep their computer perfectly free of that stuff and still their computer crashes (used a firewall, didn’t use IE, and made sure they had the latest virus protection).”

    Yeah OK, whatever helps you sleep at night.

    Contrary to convential wisdom believed by most overweight Americans you can still enjoy yourself and eat good tasting, healthy food and not be a fat slob. Having some self control, exercising regulary and controlling your portion size would be a good start. But go ahead and keep eating, don’t let a little truth get in your way.

  10. “On the other hand, I know people who lived perfect lives and still had heart attacks (exercised daily, didn’t eat anything fun like pancakes or ice cream, etc).”

    Yeah, die enjoying yourself. Treat yourself to butter, pancakes, burgers… hmmm burgers. :) I saw a news story a while ago about how the French eat. They love their butter! Dripping in the stuff. Oh man, I’m hungry now…

    As a great man once said.. “I’d rather die with a burger stuck in my colon than eat tofu.” – King of the Hill. :D

  12. Pat: yeah, yeah. On the other hand, I know people who lived perfect lives and still had heart attacks (exercised daily, didn’t eat anything fun like pancakes or ice cream, etc).

    Michael: cause my Nikon is a still camera and doesn’t do widescreen. I wish it did.

  14. Thank you for the great comments on how easy videoblogging is…but I have to say, butter is one of my least favorite foods…pancakes, on the other hand, are a total delight!
