Such weird colors and flavors. Red - Cranberry Grapefruit. Orange - Orange Carrot. White - Coconut Creme(?). How many others? I'm always finding a new color or flavor. Beats heck out of carbonated drinks. Good as a substitute for booze, and great with a shot of rum, vodka, whatever mixed in the bottle.
Whenever I go to the beach, I always throw a couple of well chilled bottles in the cooler. I don't know how you're supposed to pronounce it. I have no idea what all the healthy additives are. Carnitine, chromium, echinacea, guarana ... Somebody has a lot of imagination. Whoever thought carrot and orange juice would be mixable? But the stuff is great!
I'm a miser by heart (I guess my parent's fault). My parent's rules: 1) If you don't need it, you don't want it; and 2) If it's not on sale, you don't need it.
WG makes spending my money fun. Of course, I have to buy everything using cash. The downside - I get so disappointed if I get incoming email, and it's not a WG hit notice.
I try to stick a tin of these in my pocket any time I'm using public transportation. Many buses and trains frown upon you eating or drinking. So when you get a tickle in your throat, and start to cough, what can you do? I whip out the 'toids. Unfortunately, they do tend to set off the alarms at airport security checkpoints.
The most addictive substance I can imagine. My Mom was worried about me when I moved to Miami years ago - back when Miami Vice was a hot TV show - she had seen the show, and I was packing to move. I told her that she had already introduced me to an extremely addictive, and available, drug - M&M's. You can buy em at any corner store - newstand - or gas station. You just eat a couple - they're so small. Then a couple more. And before you know it, the bag is empty. :-( What's really bad is when you feel you have to eat all of one color. Or all of them until you find the color you're looking for.
When I was shopping for my next car (8 years ago), the Saturn dealership was one of the first places I checked out. I'd heard of the Saturn quality commitments, and attention to customer needs, and thought it would be an ideal new car. I was impressed with the quality, and the ergonomic design. But not so much with the headroom (or lack of).
I looked around the showroom, and noticed that none of the sales folks, and few of the customers, were over 5'10" tall. I'm 6'3". I bought a Nissan Maxima. Are the folks who design Saturns going to the same schools as the jerks who design airplane seating?
They have Starbucks in Thailand even. Another American icon to avoid. Plenty of independent coffee shops in Bangkok - and here. That's where I'd go, given the choice. Of course if you're in unfamiliar territory and you HAVE to have a caffeine fix, it's good to have Starbucks to fall back on. I think Crocodile Dundee said it best, "Tastes like **** but you could live on it if you had to".
They are motorised vehicles. They move as fast as - or faster than - bicycles. They are self-propelled, and require practice before they can be safely used. They are heavier than people, and can cause injury in crowded situations. Keep them off the sidewalks, please.
MSN / Windows Messenger is OK. I have it, for IM with those who use it. But if you're looking for an Instant Messaging (IM) client, I tell my friends use Yahoo Messenger. YM passes thru firewalls / routers easier (you are protected, aren't you?), and it alerts you when a friend goes offline as well as comes online. YM also logs your conversations. MM/WM doesn't. And for all the functions in YM you have to get BOTH MM and WM. Microsoft tries to excuse the MM/WM mess by saying that MM and WM were developed by two different divisions of Microsoft. I don't care.
The nearest In-N-Out is 10 minutes away from my home, driving at 80 MPH (not a good idea). I get a Double-Double (animal of course) with two orders of fries. One order to eat on the way home, the other order, in a cooler with the burger, locked in the trunk. The first time I did this, I got one order of fries - the fries were gone, and I was eyeing the burger, before I got home. When I get home with my burger, it's not totally fresh. I don't care - it's still the best burger in the county. It takes my nerves an hour to calm down from the drive. I still don't care. It's worth the drive.
Get one fresh from the KK store - it's so soft and fluffy, it melts in your mouth. No chewing required. Truly the closest thing to heaven that I can imagine. Even if it is full of fat and sugar, I don't care. Thinking of what I want in my last meal, I'm very torn between a KK or a mouthful of M&Ms. If I'm conscious when I die (hopefully many years from now but who knows), I think I'll ask for someone to stuff a KK in my mouth, then pour an envelope of M&Ms on top. And close my mouth so nothing falls out.
Since you serve yourself, the kidz I used to hang out with taught me to mix the flavours. Contests for the oddest colour combination, the grossest flavours, the most vibrant colours. And the store better not run out of the domed lids, or the right length straws! You have to fill the glass right up to the hole, but don’t overflow. Aaaah the feeling of that icy sugar water running down the back of your throat. Beats any booze you can name.
