Today is to amateur pranksters as New Year’s Eve is to amateur drunks. Watch out for them.
The Clothes At The Laundromat Go ‘Round And ‘Round
Apparently Tuesday night is a very popular night on which to do laundry. By the time I rolled into Buddy’s parking lot it was pretty full, which didn’t bode well for my laundering efforts. Luckily I was able to secure two large washing machines immediately. And, as an added bonus I was able to partake in another one-sided lust affair as I watched beautiful young lady fold her clothes — never once looking my way.
Thirty-odd minutes later my clothing had been washed and I loaded up my IKEA shopping bags and headed home for the requisite four hours of clothe drying.
Somebody Has Finally Finished Watching Season One Of “Mad Men”
I don’t know why I get interrupted when watching serial programs, I just do. For a few months I have had Season Two of Mad Men on my AppleTV, but I’ve been waiting to complete Season One before starting to watch them.
While laboring over laundry last night I finally finished Season One. OMFG I love this show. Soon I will be combining “Open That Bottle” night with “Watch At Least One Episode Of Mad Men” night. I should, otherwise I will be completely confused when Season Three begins.
Fun With Numbers
Sadly I feel that I need to use this title before finding out about my tax situation this year.
This morning I went to the building’s cafeteria to purchase a bottle of milk to pour over the breakfast cereal I purchased (for the box to turn into a light modifier) last weekend.
With my newly-renewed interest in losing weight (not fooling, I’ve a few pounds to shed before mid-May) I looked into getting the 2% milk instead of the Whole milk. Out of curiosity I looked into each variety’s calorie count.
2%: 130 Calories per serving, 2 Servings per bottle = 260 Calories
Whole: 150 Calories per serving, 1.75 Servings per bottle = 262.5 Calories
Huh! Only 2.5 more Calories? How could that be? Obviously the servings per bottle were different, and that was because the 2% milk was a 16-ounce bottle whereas the Whole milk was only a 14-ounce bottle. Given this, I didn’t mind getting a little less, “more delicious” milk, so I went with the Whole milk. (I know. I know. It’s also about the percentage of Calories that come from fat…)
Oh, the cereal was fantastic!
