We found a big 1.75 liter bottle of Absolut Apeach for $10 ... We didn't realize what a great special this was until we saw that the little 0.75 L bottles of the same stuff were going for $21. Then we absolutely had to have it. It's good stuff. A bit of a weird flavor straight but we mixed it with pink lemonade and it was absolutely delicious, no alcohol flavor at all. It's very peachy and not too sweet and it's 40% alcohol which is nice.

Also since seeing an ad on Yahoo mail for Diet Cherry Chocolate Dr Pepper, we felt the need to try some. We didn't find any at the first 2 grocery stores we tried but the third one, jackpot. Ok this was *not* on special but after the great find with the peach vodka I was feeling magnanimous so we got a 12-pack of the chocolatey stuff. It's kinda good, kinda weird... It tastes like chocolate cake.

I've never seen such crazy liquor specials except at this one liquor store. It's the same one where we found various little bottles (250 mL to 400 mL) of Creme de Menthe and Aristocrat gin and other things for $1 and $2, a few months back. It's so fun trying all that stuff. A quick google search revealed that my opinion is absolutely insane, but I actually liked the strong pine tree flavor of the Aristocrat gin. :P

I still hate beer though :P Can't understand why that seems to be the most popular alcoholic beverage.

Ooh also we're facing a bit of a mystery. Here I am online on dialup and things are working fine but our phones aren't working when I'm offline. The cordless one says "No connection to base", it thinks we have taken the phone and walked around the block so it can't commmunicate with the base or something. The other phones don't work either. Maybe some genius will tell me what to do before I finish puttering around online here. :P

EDIT: I figured it out, I just unplugged and took the battery out and put it back in and now it recognizes the phone :P

The Two Towers

So last week Darrell's friend Mike discovered on Wikipedia that Galesburg, North Dakota, a town near where Darrell and Darrin grew up and where they often hung out at the cafe, actually has the third tallest structure in the world. I find the photo on the wikipedia page rather amusing, by the way, due to its unusual dimensions. Upon discovering this, Mike, Darrell, and Darrin immediately drove out to pay the tower a visit.

More about the coat obsession

I know I already put the pictures on Facebook but I have such an infatuation with this coat that I need to post about it a bit :P. Here is the real dude in the real coat: Here is Darrell in our coat we just bought: Here's me in the coat: Here I am in the coat again (brighter shot): Anyhow, generally when you find pictures of this guy he has on the suspenders and no vest. He does wear a vest sometimes though! Go »


Well I requested some time off work until January 3rd... For the price of 4 vacation days I get 11 days off. We're going to go visit my husband's older brother in Wisconsin around New Years... Go »

supernaturally unlucky

Back among some of the first posts I made to this blog I had one called "False Hope" and another called "Another Irritating Thing". Well the same kind of thing has happened numerous more times to Darrell, but in the realm of writing, not music. Darrell and Darrin decided they were going to be writers... Go »

Who are you calling a pipsqueak?
