You know, they say that keeping a personal journal promotes reflection. In this way we gain insight into our very souls.
Apparently my soul is preoccupied with bacon. More specifically, my soul wants to find a convenient, non-messy, simple solution for bacon access on the road. The last documented experiment was with the Hormel Microwavable Bacon. But thanks to a comment on that post by Anonymous, I decided to give the Hormel Fully-Cooked bacon a go.
The biggest advantage: it's about 1/2 the cost of the microwavable version. It's also more economical for 1 because you can remove as many pieces as you need rather than the 4 slices-or-nothing packaging of the microwavable. I placed 2 slices between 2 paper towels and nuked them for 20 seconds.

Another big advantage is that if you don't have shore power, you can heat it and crisp it up in a skillet. And, should you have no self-control whatsoever, you can eat it right out of the package! Both versions were equally tasty. Thanks Anonymous!
Now I can move onto other issues such as finding a tow vehicle - which I hope to accomplish in the next six weeks or so.
Dissertation progress - the modest yet monumental work of unparalleled genius is currently with the outside reader who will pass her judgment along to the graduate school sometime next week.

After that, a date will be set for the final defense. I'm in the midst of preparing the presentation now.
Speaking of which, I hope I put up a better defense than our Auburn Tigers are at the moment. As I write this, I am watching us lose to Clemson in the 4th quarter 35-24. It's been a long time since we lost a game. Not that we will. We seem to prefer dramatic tension-riddled come-from-behind wins.
Oh well, War Eagle!!!
