Just So You Know

Ulysses S. Grant's favorite breakfast food was a cucumber soaked in vinegar.

I Drank Some Tea and Now I Have a Funny Taste in My Mouth

I went up to the corner store to get something to drink just a little while ago. I went from cooler case to cooler case, hoping something would catch my eye, but no luck. I considered getting some juice, but I hate it when juice has "natural flavors" in it. Finally I got a 23.5 oz. can of Arizona Brand Sun Brewed Style Iced Tea. This drink has "natural lemon flavor" in it, which I don't like, but I got it anyway. I went home, cracked it open, and settled in for an episode of MTV's "Next". The first half of the tea was good, but then, about halfway through, I noticed a weird metallic flavor in my mouth. I smelled the tea. This provided no clue. I took another sip. I couldn't be sure, but it seemed like the metallic flavor was coming from the tea. I drank some water to try to rinse the taste away. This did nothing. I've brushed my teeth several times since then as well drinking several more glasses of water. I still have a metallic taste in my mouth and, if anything, it's worse now than it was.

Swiss on Burnt Toast

While I was writing my previous post my toast burned. I used it anyway. I put some crappy Swiss cheese, relish, mustard, mayonnaise, and ketchup on it. All in all it was pretty bad. All those condiments couldn't hide an essentially trouble ridden base. I ate it anyway, so I can't give it an F.

Things I Am About to Eat

I am currently toasting some bread. It is Arnold Brand 12 Grain. I'm not sure yet what I'm going to put on it. I may put cheddar and pepper on it. I may put Swiss, relish, mustard, and ketchup on it. Some people might think that's gross, but not me. I think it's good. I'll let everyone know what I decided in a little bit.

I Have All This Cheese, But Nothing to Put It On

So I have all of this great cheese, but I have no bread and no crackers. I guess I'm going to need to go to the store. Maybe when I'm there I will buy other things as well. More than likely the store in question will be Eagle Provisions.

Nutrageous Candy Bar

At about 9pm yesterday I had a Reese's Nutrageous candy bar. This is my favorite candy bar because I feel that all the ingredients work in concert to create a nearly perfect candy bar experience. I remember the first time I had one was when one arrived in the daily mail along with some related literature. I was 12 or 13 years old and I think Nutrageous must have been new at the time. I was initially skeptical of a candy bar that would need to be advertised by sending it to people in the mail, but I went ahead and tried it anyway. The rest is history. I only have one complaint and that is that this candy bar is always crumbly. I sometimes want one, but don't get one because it is so crumbly. I understand that it's just the way it has to be, but still it gives me pause when saying that Nutrageous is the best candy bar.
