Out of the Blue

Happy Donut Day, an unofficial event here in the U.S. that's the first Friday in June. This commemoration has its roots in the Great Depression harking back to the Salvation Army during World War I. As a result, free donuts (I prefer the "doughnuts" spelling myself) can be found in some places: At Dunkin' Donuts you have to buy a beverage while apparently Krispy Kreme is giving them away with no strings attached. I also see the offer at a chain I don't know called LaMar's, who also celebrate the occasion with Donut Trivia. For those in other countries, don't take this lying down, we need some protests to turn this into World Donut Day!

Oh, and if fried dough strikes you as too unhealthy for your lifestyle, then today is also apparently National Running Day.

Do(ugh)nuts are probably one of the best inventions that came out of the US.

Obviously Im not talking about Berliner's here, but the ones with the hole in them

Having recently finally discovered the magic of Krispy Kreme's "Hot Donuts Now" sign, I've become re-addicted to those doughy little rings. Unfortunately there aren't any Krispy Kremes up here in this part of Canadia. I'm weeping now.

Call me crazy, but while warm KK were OK on occasion, I like "regular" donuts better on those rare instances when I eat one.

Cinnamon rolls/twists, apple fritters, chocolate or maple old fashioned - the list goes on. Mmmmm.

Lets face it, there's on so far you can go wrong with deep frying flour, water and sugar then adding more sweet stuff. It's all awesome.

Though prepared doughnuts just don't compare to freshly made.

IS there a chance Blue can get Tom Ohle's name highlighted in a technicolor rainbow? "I made The Witcher!"

I think he deserves it. That game rocked.

Blasphemy! Krispy Kreme has a donut factory where donuts are made in real-time on a very long conveyance system. And if you're lucky one of the nice KK staff will give you a piping hot freebie direct off the assembly line.

Krispy Kreme is the In-N-Out of donuts!

Hopefully you've been to In-N-Out Burgers to understand...
