I Stole Three of My Friend's Chips Ahoy! Cookies

So this friend of mine is staying at my house and the other day he bought a package of Chips Ahoy! brand chocolate chip cookies. When he first opened them I asked if I could have one and he said yes. I ate one of his cookies at that time. It was too crunchy and the chocolate tasted kind of funny to me, but overall it was okay. Anyway, later on my friend was asleep and, having no cookies of my own, I decided to help myself to one of his. Somehow this time it tasted way better. I then took two more and enjoyed those just as much. I thought about taking a fourth cookie, but in the end I decided not to. I feel a little guilty, but I might take some more when I get home tonight. As a side note, all this talk about stealing reminds me of wooden nickels which reminds me that, for novelty's sake, I think I would take a wooden nickel.

2006's Worst Sandwich

I just ate a sandwich consisting of bread, frozen Pathmark brand Seasoned Fries (heated up in a toaster oven), relish, mustard, mayonnaise, and hot sauce. I prepared this not because I suspected that it might be good, but because there was nothing else to eat. It was disgusting. The worst part was that the seasoned fries had been in the freezer for at least six months and were really freezer burned. Despite all the crap I put on them I could taste the freezer burn. I can still taste it. This is the worst sandwich I've had in a long time. For awfulness, it beats the Swiss cheese on burnt toast by a mile. Not only did it taste bad, but it made me feel like never eating again for fear that I might taste something like this.

Chex Mix Brand Snack: Bold Party Blend

I just purchased a 6oz package of Chex Mix Brand Snack in the Bold Party Blend flavor. I only purchased this flavor because the CVS where this item was purchased did not offer the Peanut Lovers' variety. In fact, almost no place offers the Peanut Lovers' variety. I don't understand. This is the best kind of Chex Mix! There are many peanut lovers in the world, myself included, who would jump at the chance to purchase something with so many peanuts in it. Anyway, they didn't have it, and so I bought Bold Party Blend instead. I opened it up a few minutes ago and it's okay, but I don't see what's so bold about it. It tastes pretty much like regular Chex Mix to me. I was expecting it to be spicy or something. The only difference I can detect is that there are "snack crackers" included in this version. If anything, I think this makes the mix less bold because these crackers are sort of like Mini Ritz, only they have a weird stale texture. I guess another difference is that this flavor tastes saltier and monosodium glutamatier than regular Chex Mix, but that seems totally unnecessary and does not add to the boldness. Finally, the name of this flavor suggests that it would be good to have at a party. I don't understand what's more party appropriate about Bold Party Blend than any other type of Chex mix. To make a long story short, I just don't see the point of having this flavor.
