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

TV crushes

I need to apologize for the rather fangirlish reference in my last goo. I was having a little crush on Marcus Cole when I made the goo... that is my justification. Go »

A wish

You know, it would be nice to be the kind of person who could sometimes do or say things *without* regretting them. I think that would be on my top three list of wishes :) Just to turn off a part of my brain. It's really freakin cold out. Go »


Scott mentioned having 5 boxes of cereal - that is nothing, I just did a quick count at home and we have at least 25! Some extras might be lurking in other rooms of the house! It's quite unbelievable really. Go »

Mystery Halloween costume

This might look like two guys in ugly clothes, but in reality it is a very nerdy Halloween costume. Can anyone figure it out? Edit: Steve West figured it out, answer is in the comments. Go »

Adventures with Free Desserts

Four recent adventures with free desserts: 1. We had not much to do on Saturday morning so, against our better judgement, we decided to go to the furniture store, who had sent us a coupon offering free breakfast and a free gift to "preferred customers". Breakfast turned out to be doughnuts. Go »

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 »
