new year's eve '18

i have no idea were the year went.

it seems like just a few months ago it was bitterly a cold january day.

hope next year is better.

if you party tonight, please don't drive. and remember "buzzed" driving can be just as bad.

christmas 2018

if you celebrate hope you had a nice one.

if you didn't get what you wanted, hope you can return it & get something better.

as for me, i'm hoping the discount on the candy is good enough tomorrow to make getting womething worth while.

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. it's 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.
