Public Service Announcements

  • If you, like me, only enjoy flying because the peach rings at airports across the country are better than any peach ring you could buy in a store, you're going to be disappointed to hear that apparently they changed the brand and the peach rings are now extremely mediocre and not the perfect blend of sour and sweet.
  • Before going to Costco and buying over a hundred dollars worth of food, please check to make sure your area didn't have a foot of snow in the preceding days, as dragging a cart through it is difficult and taking all the stuff upstairs to your apartment while trudging through the unplowed lot is really not an exercise in fun.

PS:  I know all you east coast people are rolling your eyes at our puny snow.  Please remember I was stuck in an airport for seven hours yesterday, with mediocre peach rings, due in part to your bizarre weather, so I do feel your pain.
  • When giving up Diet Coke, be prepared to have dreams about Diet Coke and to read names like Dan Carter as Diet Coke.  There might even be a time when you glance over at your lazy dog, sleeping on the end of your couch, and decide that the shape of his body is vaguely similar to the shape of a Diet Coke bottle.  All of these are normal symptoms of withdrawal (I hope).
  • When you want to excitedly show people how you made a 300 calorie pizza with Flat Out Bread, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and chicken sausage, food photography like this is just not going to cut it.

You're welcome in advance.  Have the loveliest of weekends!


  1. You are soooo funny :) What a great humour writer you are :)

  2. It's all in the presentation! Put a bow on it and any dish looks more appetizing.

  3. Thank you, Irving!

    Aisling, I hear that also works if you have a really old and outdated cell phone. Any personal experience with that one?
