I have stocked up on beer. Hoping to snow in until May.

Doesn't look to happen, though. Heading towards the warmest December ever recorded.

Oh well, I'm enjoying me beer anyway. Cheers.

The Velveeta is necessary to reduce toilet paper consumption, since it might otherwise run out before the bread, milk, and eggs.

(In NC, there are always runs on those items if anyone says 'snow' or 'hurricane'. It's a state law, I think. The TP makes sense, I guess, but who knew we loved French Toast so much?)

Velveeta - the cheaper option.

Usually, a dumb movie makes me laugh or just feel disappointed, but about three-quarters through, I realized that I was just... angry. The movie was so dumb, it made me angry, I hated every person onscreen. I wanted the asteroid to win. I almost walked out. The instant the credits started, I RAN for the car. I couldn't get away from the dumb fast enough.

That film was so predictable. The reason we found it so hilarious was that we succeeded in predicting what would happen next most of the time - and when the violins would start playing.

We did have to run at the end, though. The couple in front of us thought it was a very touching drama and were very upset with us laughing...

I always check the quality score on the label. For beer 9 is a quite good score. For red wines it should be at least 14.

Not that I understand the scale. Much like DxO scores, really. A beer that scores 9% is definitely better than a wine scoring 11

But doesn't the score vary depending on the sensor used?
