    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Symbols instead of numbers?

    This ^ is the one I used to drink. Not sure why I stopped. Maybe I found out AriZona Teas/Beverages had not a thing to do with Arizona the state. A corporation HQ’d in New York using the name of the (48th?) state as a brand name...sounds a bit dodgy when I type it.

    Maybe that is why I stopped...I was very much a fan of the glass bottles.

    I used to drink that...!...pale jade green bottle? There was also one in a dark blue bottle I was partial to.

    They are large as others have stated. They are also made to exacting standards to ensure (and prove: there is a reason they are clear) that they are not loaded or weighted or biased in any way. They are also discarded after a few hours of use on the tables. Used casino dice can be had fairly inexpensively from online sources. Anyways, that ^ is the short version of: “or something”.

    Those little blue strings that look like spaghetti straps are kinda ruining this for me.

    Room temperature, but then poured** over Ice, so 32°F (**by someone else, I have no means available of making Tea myself). Pretty much Zink’s first sentence. I cannot abide “American Sweet Tea” especially if HFCS was used as the sweetener.

    That was my experience at HEB yesterday. Cap'n John & I stopped by on our way back from Llano. there were three bags of truffles on the shelves at one (1300). I did take two of the Lindor truffle bags & a bag of KitKats that was $2 off...the truffles were full price though...it's all The Donald's fault. What has Donald Duck got to do with Lindor Truffles? I did get a bag of Ghirardarelli chocolate squares at half the original price. (There was about 3 foot of remnant chocolates left.)

    My local grocery store was all but picked clean at 1730 hrs. Seriously, 16 feet of empty shelf space, floor to top shelf.

    Molé ( iGadgetry keyboard FTW.) (...also for science pun...) Was there a submarine? and four commandos** who swam from it up to to the watergate of the super secret base, then ditched their scuba-gear, only to discover the entrance had been hopelessly blocked by earthquake damage (or maybe earthquake bombs or battleship rounds...that wasn’t clear) so, they geared up and hiked off into the jungle....? If not, that ^ mess must have been a different dreamscape.
  11. http://www.lepage.ca/content/dam/uac/lepage/canada/1-3/1-3-1/LePage 100% Glue.pdf I wonder if this glue is sold in the lower 48....some of the packaging on some of their other glue formulas resembles Loctite® Branded glues.

    No idea... I am too annoyed with Target® to shop there. They are evidently in league with a grade of marketing majors most foul. Will try to find a link. And I have: Target thought it would be clever if they showed a lower-than-in-store price to people who were shopping over the internet, but then the app would change the price (upward) right in the parking lot as those folks approached the store.

    I second the question. And, I wish to join the League of Stew Aficionados (or whatever acronym is later chosen). Recently, I took one can of Campbell’s® Chunky Chicken Noodle Soup and since it is headed the right direction but is not as chunky as it ought be, I pulled a can of Progresso® CNS off the shelf, drained off the chicken broth (liquid) and added all the nice solids and spare noodles to the original can of soup. The result reached an acceptable density.

    For as many decades in service that my ears have, they do remarkably well. That might be the opposite of my dump stat. The SAD thing about crippling the range (stove top) and oven is that I have a frozen pizza in the freezer —DiGiorno® brand— that is not going to get cooked anytime soon; ...it wants baking.

    So that’s today then... For some unfathomable reason I was thinking HSAD was Friday. No idea why.

    After the events of last night, I realize that I need to “revise and extend my remarks”. I burned bacon. In a microwave. I was going for extra crispy. Much of it was extra, extra, very, crispy. But one spot was all the way black. I have never before achieved crispy bacon cooking it at home. This was a first. All previous attempts have been a greasy soggy mess. Last week, I heard a strange buzzing noise coming from the kitchen. Fearing the fridge was about to die I investigated. It wasn’t the fridge. But I could not audibly isolate or track down the noise. Skipping to the end of the story...the noise ceased when the 220volt circuit breaker that is dedicated to the range/oven unit was thrown to the off position. (All the normal switches on the face of the unit were already in the Off positions ). All of the above forces a Conclusion: My dump stat is culinary arts, not Dexterity. (I do, have a very low effective Dex score, but I realized this is mostly due to various negative modifiers.)

    Did Canada Post give up and send it back to the return address?

    Tiny marks. (That you can’t see.) Same principle as an actor “hitting their marks” (little bits of tape or black dots drawn with a Sharpie)..

    Several days ago I acquired a Dominos Pizza. Tomorrow is recycle day. I cut up the box, and I happened to see and read the bottom of it. Looks... like ^ this. Give it a read. Zoom up if you need to. (That is somebody else’s picture but I can verify this box design is no hoax, I have a greasier one just like it. That hand is Sasquatch Scale, By the way.) Is Dominos trolling us? I think my favorite bit is: “Box must be right-side up for best results.”

    Waldenbooks? Do they still exist somewhere?

    I don't do those games either. So much so that I had to look up "BR Games" because I did not know the acronym or category. One, thing led to another, that led to another until I found myself at Urban **Dictionary: BR has an entry at UD. Definitions 2 & 3: **a hive of scum and villainy if there ever was one.

    Wait... 4/20 is national pineapple upside down cake day? According to some sources it is April 21. None of them seem to know when it was first observed. Or, who exactly decides these things?
