Bright, Sunshiny Day

Good Monday, citizens! I don't know what to call my collective group of 3 or 4 readers. League of Melbotis had Leaguers and Adventures of Steanso has Adventurers. Troublemakers? McSteanies?

I admit, I am in a good mood today, primarily because I didn't have dialysis this morning. I'm coming off of a strange holiday dialysis schedule where everyone's days were shifted to give Christmas and New Years off to patients and staff. So this marks the first Monday in years that I haven't felt like crap. Hooray! Also? No dialysis tomorrow, either.

It is hella cold here this morning, which caught me off guard when I glanced outside at the sunshine and ventured to the grocery store sans coat. My car thermometer informed me it was not yet 40 degrees out and I regretted my clothing choice. I hope it gets a little warmer, or at least stays sunny, because I have to get the dogs out of the house for walkies today, lest they drive me bonkers.

Speaking of the grocery store, I picked up some shredded cheese (cool story, right?). I always get the HEB brand, because it tastes fine and is cheaper than Kraft. Anyhoo, I find it strange that HEB has made the decision to label some of their cheese "Fancy", even though it tastes exactly the same as the non-fancy cheese. What's fancy about it? Was it cut with diamonds?

Needs a top hat and a monacle

While we're talking about the Heeb, I saw these on the shelf there a while ago. Ryan wants me to buy all of them to try, but I don't think I have the stomach for it.

Bllllleeeeeaaaarrrrrgghhhh

One last pointless picture - I got a new toaster this weekend. It is already superior to my last 2 toasters in that it:

A) Doesn't have a "POEWR" button
B) Has a door that closes all the way
C) Has a timer that works


This is the best toaster, ever. There is none higher.

You don't have to taste-test the sauces. I'm happy to do it. All of them sound like a good idea to me.

Also, I seem to recall a little, pale girl who didn't want a new toaster oven even though her current toaster oven was a fire hazard.

You guys are the toaster buyingste folks I know. And I've also wondered about what makes that cheese so fancy. Maybe it's made with milk from fancy cows...
