this blog

i don't know why i bother. no one read it/ i never had more then 2 followers. no one blogs, everyone does facebook or tumblr.

my brother strong-armed me into this because he was doing one, but he hasn't posted lin like 4 years.

blah food

recently had marie callender's creamy vermont mac & cheese bowl and did not like it at all.

first of all the pasta shells (it should be illegal to call something mac & cheese when the pasta is not macaroni) were not cooke all the way.

second the sauce did not tasted like cheese. i've had vermont pasta & cheese TV dinners before and they taste like a sharp white cheddar, but this didn't taste like anything.

if you had blindfolded me before i ate it, i would not be able to tell it was cheese sauce. it was a waste of time to make it, effort to eat it, money to buy it & the callories it gave me.

window shopping

i can (& have) wasted hours looking on ebay for stuff i'll never get.

recently i discovered shopgoodwill.com where the charity goodwill (which has thrift stores to support their cause) sells stuff in a similar way to ebay, where they have an auction or a "buy it now" option. itsn't not the individual stores, but the regional organizations doing this. some will ship the stuff (sometimes for as low as 1 cent) others do pick-up only.

some things are ridiculously priced. like gemstone rings for thousands of dollars. no one really wants to pay that much for a used thing. they'd be better off setting the reserve price at like $500 and hope for a bidding war.

thanksgiving 2018

hopefully you don't eat too much & score some nice deals on black friday stuff tomorrow.

thanksgiving is the deadliest holiday after new year's, so don't drink & drive. "buzzed" driving is just as bad.
