There are so many intelligent and articulate people covering the hard-hitting
issues in our country these days, that I felt it was my duty to cover the
rather inconsequential bullshit that tends to make up the vast majority of
our lives. Actually, I'll just be griping a lot which, if you weren't aware,
doubles as a synonym for complaining, and as a descriptor for
a sharp pain in the bowels.

Fringe and Product Reviews

Freshly returned from a trip to the bay area out in California, my body is still a little out of whack. So it was that when I got home from work tonight I really had the desire to just watch some boobtube. Unfortunately I also decided to run, so it got pretty late and though I caught the end of House, I mostly had to settle for Fringe, aka shitty X-Files. The acting was the opposite of top-notch and all it left me thinking was that I wish I wasn't so lazy and instead just popped in an early X-Files DVD.

A couple of weeks ago I decided to sample the [relatively] new Three Musketeers with mint bar. Though I've really lost my taste for candy bars over the years, I still feel the need to sample new entrants to market. I have to say, that I was met with disappointment here as it basically amounts to a poor man's Peppermint Pattie. That said, I don't know what I could really have been expecting, except maybe the delicious texture of Musketeers' nougat with a hint of mint. But alas, I am not head of candy bar design.

In successful and delicious candy news I opted for some gummy bears on my flight home. Now I am often excited by the prospect of gummy bears, but frequently disappointed with the execution as texture is nearly as important as taste in such matters. Well "Snak Club" brand got it done. I may even try to order them up wholesale, where I believe there are two for a dollar as compared to the airport terminal $3.99. But as good or better than the gummy bears themselves was a note, under the ingredients that states "Product of U.S.A. or Mexico or Brazil or Czech Republic or China or Indonesia." Awesome.
