How about Christmas decorations? Do they go all out and try to outdo everyone else?

Ah. So they hide their propane and propane accessories addiction.

I've noticed a lot of really unhealthy certified organic foods like palm sugar and coconut oil. Now, the benefits of foods being organic are questionable at best, while the benefits of not eating refined sugar and saturated fat are well-established. My first reaction was "this seems as silly as organic tobacco." Then I googled it. Organic tobacco is also a thing.

Everything in this world has an organic variant. Everything is also being politicized.

I find it entertaining to mentally replace the word “organic” with “carbon-based” whenever I see it applied to random foods.

I've altered my diet so that I'm trying to lower my saturated fat intake, which unfortunately means that I can now only rarely eat cheese, which might well be my single favorite food. Now, there's four main ways I ate cheese before: thinly-sliced semi-hard cheeses, string cheeses (mozzarella and Oaxaca) divided into strings, in quesadillas, and (with certain cheeses like halloumi and panela) pan-fried in olive oil.

I still haven't found an adequate replacement for the first three ways I eat it, but for all that it's a terrible meat substitute, I've determined that fried tofu is a good substitute for fried cheese. It's distinguishable, but still as the texture that I like about it.

No it's just the lawn mowing. I mowed Friday so I'll be very surprised if I don't hear a mower today. I was shocked to not hear it yesterday.

A notification is constantly popping up that says "The last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it." along with that comes that 3 note notification sound. So to fix it, I went to the control panel and changed the notification sound to (none). I'm a hacker.

One of my cousins is moving to Fort Worth, TX. Her husband’s job said he had to move out there, and he said not unless they offered a boatload of money. So they offered a boatload of money.
