31 (or 32) Flavors

Ah, you guys, I’ve just discovered that Baskin Robbins had 32 original flavors, not 31. WHAT. I don’t even know. I’m just gonna list them here and let the controversy propel this blog to stardom. Here goes. Banana Nut Fudge Black Walnut Burgundy Cherry Butterscotch Ribbon Cherry Macaroon Chocolate Chocolate Almond Chocolate Chip Chocolate Fudge […]

3.30: National Pencil Day

National Pencil Day falls on March 30 each year. Thank goodness it fell on a Sunday this year, because when the Pencil Day party falls on a Friday or Saturday, my hangover lasts for DAYS.

I’ve had to amend it to “knowingly eat anything with sugar added,” as I’ve run into quite a few suspect salad dressings in restaurants, and had the horrible realization […]

25 Songs About Fixing Your Brain: Antidepressants and Such

Today’s playlist is all about stuff we put on our brains. Don’t worry, I got that one Dokken song. Two songs are unavailable via Spotify, so below I’ve got Lloyd Cole on the WordPress player plus a killer track via embedded YouTube. Below that is the Spotify playlist. Note: most of these songs are either implicitly or explicitly […]
