Ah hell...my wife made buttermilk biscuits for breakfast this morning.

Never mind. Tell your mom I said, "Next time."

Last week I went to aldi, and got a case each of Lacroix coconut cola and Coffea Exotica water. The coconut's good, but the coffee is delicious, and I never see it anywhere. I got some last year when aldi got it in. I didn't want to be greedy, so I left some for other people. I went again this week, and there was a case left, so now I have two cases of coffee water! That should last awhile. I've been drinking a lot of seltzer lately, but I save the coffee for a special treat. I wish some store would start carrying it locally.

I thought I was starting work Friday but I double checked my schedule and it's actually Saturday, so I feel like I have a bonus day off.
At least you caught it. I went to court a day before once.


Then another time, while in the courtroom, one guy went to court a week before the actual date.

Very interesting! Does it contain any caffeine? :D



Why is this a good thing, you ask. It didn't burn the place down

No doubt! Still scary though! :oops:

No, it's just flavored. It's kind of an extracted, amplified coffee flavor. Tastes roasty, and kind of like a coffee candy, but isn't really like iced coffee or anything like that. Nobody's gonna mistake it for brewed coffee.

I'd be more likely to try it if it did contain caffeine ... I had to quit drinking full-strength brewed coffee (hot or cold) 99% of the time due to stomach problems but I enjoy like the flavor.

Coffee ice cream can be really good and believe it or not coffee-soda isn't terrible .... especially if you make a float WITH the ice cream!

Not sure about coffee seltzer though ... will keep an eye out for a single can/bottle to try it.

I developed some horrible eating habits during quarantine. Gained so much weight I went up 2 pant sizes, bigger underwear, larger shirts. I never got on a scale though. I had a physical for work and when I got on the scale I was shocked. I was heavier than I have ever been in my whole life.

A few days later I was talking with a coworker and she was telling me that her and another coworker were going to do weight watchers. I mentioned I needed to lose weight and she asked if I wanted to do it too. I said no. I could figure it out. I pretty much went to the way I used to eat, but less.

I hopped on a scale at work a few days ago and I'm within a pound of my goal. So I lost 30 pounds in 3 months without what I consider to be hard dieting.

Today I went to dig out my old jeans my wife tried to get rid of. Apparently she got rid of all but one pair that was nearly new. Fit almost just fine. Kind a baggy in the ass and for some reason seem long. My wife owes me like 6 pairs of jeans!

Long story short. Dropped 30 lbs.

I'm about where I should be for weight. Lost about 20# over summer. Just in time for drinking season, and stuff I like to eat. Ate the bulk of a package of pumpkin spice cookies today :^S

You willingly ate something "pumpkin spice?"

You're dead to me.

That shit should be banned. Only "pumpkin pie" should be pumpkin spice.

It's kinda overdone, but I like the flavor when it's in season. Better than the 'summer flavor', which I'd say is watermelon. That shit can go to hell, especially the tart versions like jolly rancher. Tastes like vomit. Whoever decided 'watermelon flavor' tasted like real watermelon should have been fired. He was as competent as a blind paint mixer. :^S
