Out of the Blue

I haven't recovered yet from the shock and horror at the recent discovery that Tic Tac mints have been bulked up, when I find another favorite product has been altered. We picked up some coffee yesterday, and also grabbed some Lays potato chips since they were on sale. I can recall the chill I felt when we returned home and MrsBlue eyed a bag, quoting the blurb that announced "now even crisper!" It's easy to guess where this all goes from here... the reason I've always preferred Lays chips is their delicate thinness, and of course, this new "crisper" dealie actually means thicker (if I wanted kettle chips, I'd buy them). Another favorite product ruined, though in this case, I guess they are doing me a favor, as there are not many positive health benefits from eating potato chips, but it still is a bummer.

On the topic of altered foods, how does the quarter pounder with cheese keep getting smaller and still be a quarter pounder? To make things worst the price of the burger keeps going up. Bring back the Mc DLT yeah i love burgers, and i have one of those crazy metabolisms to...just cant gain weight either. People told me when i hit 25 thngs would change and i'd get fat but here i am at almost 31 years of age and still nothing! I wonder if having such ametabolism will make my body burn out quicker?! Anyways one thing my wife and ex-gilfriend have commented on is the amount of heat my body seems to release. I wonder if that has anything to do with my lack of body fat.

Anyways i remeber playing defender and zaxxon on a trs-80 back in the days but i never owned one. Zaxxon was one awsome game for the time! My first PC was a vic-20 the baddest gaming rig ever made lol! Ahhh And the games they had in the user manual (you had to type hundreds of lines of basic and save them on a tape) never worked!
