  • I was at a grocery store I rarely frequent due to exhorbitant pricing (and yet it was created to cater to the poor old folks) and I noticed Corn Flakes had this "limited edition" package. I must have stared at it for at least a full minute, trying to figure out how the picture would encourage anyone to buy it. It just made me sad. A little boy, cheeks puffed out (inflammation?), perched behind the bowl of flattened grains, staring at the camera as though saying, "do I have to eat this?"

    • Awww... the little dude looks so sad.
      Character is defined by what you do when no one else is looking.

      • I think the little dude actually wanted eggs and sausage. He's thinking, "WTH! Don't you know youre setting me up for a life of inflammation? And I thought you loved me."

        • My only consolation is that there seems to be as many boxes now as there were two weeks ago. Maybe people aren't buying it?

          alter ego chokes out:
          NO! They're buying the boxes with the NICE pictures on them!

            • There was an ad for Ester-C I saw earlier touting its benefits over whole oranges. Complete with CGI anthropomorphic oranges trying to "cover it up". Definitely rubbed me the wrong way.

              • I have no power.

                My house has no gas.

                I am cold. It is dark.

                I feel like shit because of the new meds I'm taking, though it's a little better today. At least I'm warm at work.

                Worst. Halloween. Ever.

                      um...


                      yeah...




                      I got nothin'. I got a new (to me, actually 11 years old) truck yesterday! Toys for me!

                      Aha! My gripe is that I am not at this moment driving my new truck around having fun, but am instead at work.

                      • I spent the better part of the day crawling around my upstairs tile deck re-sealing the edges. There was a nasty problem last winter with leakage coming through down into the living room below. Crawling around in the dust, dirt, and cobwebs and wearing a patch of index finger skin off on that damn glue gun.

                        Ah, the joys of home ownership.

                          I can't wait to build a house. I CAN wait to repair said hypothetical house after it is no longer shiny and new.

                            Oh trust me, fixing one is a lot easier than building one. Not as rewarding, no, but the headaches that come with building a house are monumental.

                                It's going to be a small house, but yeah, I know. Still looking forward to it.
