Happy Birthday to DJ SLT! The T stands for Tom and while his page is locked down, you can still tag him to do an end around to get ONTO his page. Sadly, nobody has yet mashed up "This Is America" with "Only After Dark," but several (well, three) people HAVE mashed it up with...

Thu 09:48 Heading back to Dark Horse in two Wednesdays, so yep I spammed you with an invite, sorry about that if you get annoyed by invites. (I LOVE invites! Invite me to everything! I'll still stay home, but) If somehow you wanted an invite and didn't get it, or just can't figure out how to see it, here's a link Facebook also may not show you: https://fb.me/e/2Cf7fdcEl As always, feel free to mark "Interested" even if you're not as it helps with visibility!

Wed 21:48 Over the weekend, I signed up for Narcan training through the Hennepin County Sheriff's department. It was scheduled to take place today at 5 in Plymouth - and at 4, I visited my St Paul office for the first time in approximately a year to get my flu shot, which is to say I hadn't been there since LAST year's flu shot. I was basically in and out with no line but my paperwork took a while to fill out so by the time I was back in the car, Google Maps was telling me it would be suddenly incredibly tight as to whether or not I could make it across the metro to Plymouth on time after navigating a rush hour which I keep forgetting exists after working remotely for 19 months and counting. After all the stress of the traffic combined with a freshly sore vaxx arm, breathing through a mask when pretty unskilled at doing anything masked AND - in a decision I really should have seen as a bad one before having the benefit of hindsight - having drank an entire Sugar Free Rockst!
ar in the car while eating nothing - by the time Randall from Bold North Recovery started a needle demonstration about 45 minutes in (I should probably remind you here that I am..... really really ... rather not good with needles - especially twice in a day), I found myself getting dizzy, sweating EVERYWHERE, feeling a lightheadedness I'd never felt before, and if anyone else in the room had actually looked in my direction at the time they would have wondered if *I* needed some medical attention. Fortunately the feeling eventually did pass AND I got to hear Bobbi narrating the final video (!) - and now I'm all schooled up on administering naloxone, thankfully as a nasal spray and not via intramuscular injection so as to not have TWO people lying on the floor by the time it's done. Ya know we have a lot of fun here and I kid a lot, but there isn't much funny about opioid overdoses and after taking the class, I hope and pray I'll never have to put into practice what I learn!
ed today but I'm very glad I learned it and feel prepared - yo!
u never know when you might save a life. There's no reason you can't take the same class! The next two sessions take place November 23rd and December 16th. You don't have to drive to Plymouth and attend in person, although you can and you'll get your Narcan that day - but virtual attendance via Zoom is also an option! To apply, visit their Office Form at https://forms.office.com/g/weHEUH3vPs. Just try to limit your stress, flu shots and caffeine intake ahead of it - don't make the same mistakes I made.

also hello it's also Kat's birthday, FB pickin' favourites again
30.9 02:45 Happy Birthday, Sam!
28.9 16:14 It's TOMORROW! I am mostly reminding MYSELF! Tonight I'll take ten things out of the crate. Just before I leave the house I'll sneak two of them back in. Try the brisket and you must add a side of mac & cheese! We'll put HAPPY back in at least a few hours! Follow Dark Horse Bar&Eatery for more FOOD FOTOS
25.9 11:44 When you dream about people, do you feel an intense need to let them know and check up on them just in case the universe is trying to let you know something? For me, probably because it doesn't seem to happen very often, I usually act on it, but this morning it just feels creepy so I'm not gonna. (I actually had two - TWO! - separate dreams about people I know, but both of them are folks I haven't actually spoken to for at least a couple months, but must think about often enough for my dream brain to manifest them this morning) Anyway, good morning! I'm on the air at 5 playing new music and your requests and absolutely not discussing anything remotely close to this ;-)

Way back when I tried the jalapeño Cheetos for the first time and raved about them. Joseph and a few other people let me know this stuff existed and I probably should buy some, make it and eat it. Cub actually stocked it, so I bought these two boxes and they sat on the kitchen island for....a while. TONIGHT I decided it was a special enough night (in that I was alone and bored, had milk that hadn't expired and there wasn't really anything else in the house calling to me to have for 1am dinner) so here we go.

First of all, turns out I VASTLY prefer macaroni to spiral.....oni and was a little sad that I didn't really look too hard about which kind of mac was in this "mac and cheese" box, not that that's why you buy this stuff - you want to experience this FLAVOUR. Perhaps spirals, by virtue of their larger amount of surface area to which the sauce can stick, was an educated choice. I'm not working for Kraft for reasons, probably. (Is this even a Kraft product? I don't know, the boxes are already in the garbage and I'm back upstairs.)

ANYWAY. YES. It WAS delicious, and close enough to the actual Cheetos themselves that I was happy. I probably didn't need to ingest 1500 calories' worth in one sitting, but that's kinda how you do boxed Mac and Cheese - load up and know you'll regret it almost immediately after you've cleaned up the dishes.

I stopped buying mac and cheese boxes completely years ago, so I won't buy these again as part of that. I DO kinda want the ol' reliable blue box mac & cheese one more time now, though. I'll see if it's ever at a sale price I feel like paying. This and homemade Chex Mix are the only things that I use margarine for so it might be good to do those two things more than twice a year.

I'm not sure which alcohol to follow this up with but with the lingering jalapeño sauce taste in my mouth and throat I know the first few swigs are gonna taste weird no matter which selections I make.

For Chester Cheetah, this is CRZ - and this has been another episode of "CRZ's Life Choices!" As always, we humbly thank you for your feigning of interest to make it this far into the block of text.
