All right, here's something salty. These absolutely do not need to exist, but whichever multinational conglomerate what currently owns The Frito-Lay Company is bound and determined to "innovate" in the chip arena. All these are - ALL these are - are "Doritos 3D" except with potato starch instead of corn. Instead of poofing up a potato chip, they roll em out really thin and then assemble them into these square-y things with an extra layer in the middle. I could BARELY taste the sour cream & onion (maybe the cheese ones will be better...they usually are). But buddy if you want Pringles, the cans of Pringles are RIGHT OVER THERE. If you want something in a potato poof, perfection was achieved with MUNCHOS. The only good thing about this product is it's so light that you can eat an entire bag and only consume half the calories of a "real" bag of chips, but that also means these are tremendously expensive by volume. They're no Cheez-It Crisps. Bottom line is I kn!
ew what I was getting into but I also knew that I'd probably be generating "content" out of it although I get paid exactly zero either way HEY PAY ATTENTION TO MEEEEEEEEE

LATE NIGHT CONFESSIONS: I may have just bought a bulk bag containing five pounds of Chewy Lemonheads because I was tired of not finding 5oz cinema boxes around town thanks to the supply chain or something. Now I gotta find 16 empty boxes to refill I guess

Meanwhile this person's kink is seeing me eat Oreos on camera and is really bummed I haven't been on YouTube since 2020 and they just don't give a f that I know all this - I guess you have to admire it in a way

Are you like me where you've lived your whole life without salting your Oreos? It's....not BAD, but pretty unnecessary. In fact, this whole varietal seems really unnecessary and inferior to the original.

PANDEMIC KITCHEN: Last night, I found a box of "veal parmagiana" that I may have bought when I was still in my 30s and for some reason I had kept in the basement freezer under some fake McRibs ALSO from On-Cor. Determined to consume it before its freshness date passed an entire decade ago, I prepared them in the oven last night. Once again, moisture was an important yet largely missing component as the "sauce" had pretty much hardened to a non-spreadable component so I decided NOT to photograph the really ugly plating, but of course it still tasted pretty good and I'm still alive this morning. Also pictured: $1.29 worth of Fresh Thyme kale which will be salads for the next three or four days because I enjoy a balanced diet of food from 2011 AND food from 2022.

There's been a disturbing rise in the number of occurrences in the media of folks sounding out URLs with "backslash" when they mean "slash." Clearly, somebody needs to start a movement to get this corrected. And, obviously...that somebody is me.

Hooray, the long saga of my heating situation is finally over with the replacement of my old water heater with one that works with the new boiler (which I may have forgotten to show you until now, it's been running about three weeks) to save me big time on the gas bill...not enough to make up for the truly monstrous initial investment I've had to outlay, but thank goodness I'm living forever. CenterPoint will surprise me one day with a rebate, too, but I don't think it's much in the grand scheme of things...still, better'n nothin'. Bonus is the chimney is now fully disconnected from everything and may now be considered merely a vestigial and/or decorative part of the house.

(Shared from Christopher)
"Pour Dr Pepper into saucepan. Heat to simmering temperature (180 degress or just below boiling). Your beverage will appear to be boiling due to the carbonation. Place a thin slice of lemon in bottom of cup and pour steaming hot Dr Pepper over lemon slice. A fresh slice of lemon is required to give the proper taste."
