I haven’t blogged much in the last couple of days. The reason is because I have been blessed with Kidney stones. Yes, I am being sarcastic, in regards to the blessed aspect of the kidney stones. Apparently I drink way too much cola, and that’s resulted in my newly acquired kidney stone(s). Maybe this will be a lesson for me? Maybe now, I will stop drinking so much cola? I seriously doubt it. I love soda too much, to just quit drinking it.

Anyway, I just thought I would let you know why I haven’t posted. Once I am feeling better, I will have plenty to say, in fact I have several things I want to blog about, so am anxiously awaiting this pain to just go away.

Example of an American grocery store aisle.

I really hate Grocery Shopping. Just thought I would throw that out there. That being said, I am about to groggily hop into the shower, scrub myself down, and then head out to do some shopping. Hopefully, by the time I finish this entry, and begin my march to the shower, I will have fully woken up. 

What do I hate about shopping for Groceries? Well, that’s not an easy question! There’s so much to hate! I’m not particularly fond of having to deal with all the people at the store. You know, the ones who park their cart in the middle of the aisle and then stand there talking to someone else, whom also has their cart parked in the middle of the aisle, thereby essentially blocking off that aisle so if you need something from the other side of their barricade, you are forced to go around them? You know the type? 

I also hate roaming around the store, grabbing what I want, and stuffing it into my cart. Then, after buying the groceries, I have to load them up into the car, then unload them into the house, and then finally I have to stuff those groceries into the Shelves/Fridge/Freezer. 

As I said, what’s not to hate? To top it all off, I know come next week, I have to do it all again! You know what would be really great? If people didn’t eat or drink. Then there wouldn’t be a need for Grocery Shopping! Of course, then I would miss out on important things. Things like soda, Cakes, Doughnuts and the occasional other goody that I ought not be eating but do anyway. 

Jones is a soda company that has made some of the best and worst soda flavors in the history of soda flavors! Green Apple ranking right at the top of their best soda flavors!

They also have been known to release some limited edition holiday flavors. Such as their Broccoli Casserole, Smoked Salmon Paté , Turkey & Gravy, Corn on the Cob, and Pecan Pie flavors, and those are just the flavors for 2005! Each holiday they usually release a new holiday pack.

Anyway, the point of this post is to mention another one of their limited edition flavors. It’s their Dungeons and Dragons set! Perfect for the hard core geeks.

Now, these are the types of things that normally I would scoff at, and make fun of, but to be honest, I actually want this! No, I am not geeky! Don’t even think it lest you want me to cast Magic Missle on you!

Geeze! Well, ok! I guess I am kinda-sorta geeky!

SpriteZeroIt’s been ages since I have had Sprite Zero. For those who live under a rock, Sprite Zero is sprite soda with zero sugar.

Anyway, I picked up a bottle of it today, just because I haven’t had it in awhile. I popped the bottle open and took a drink, and the taste reminded me of something that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. I figured if I took another drink, maybe it would come to me, so I lifted the bottle and took me a rather large gulp.

Then it hit me! Now obviously the taste isn’t exact, and maybe it’s all my imagination, but does Sprite Zero remind anyone else of the fruity flavor of Froot Loops? Because to me, it seemed very froot loopish. That’s not a bad thing either, I rather enjoy that crisp fruity flavor.

mt_dew_voltageOk, so I am sure most people are aware of the new mountain dew flavor called “Mountain Dew: Voltage“, I mean, you people voted for this! It’s like, the Obama of the dew family! He’s the new hope for dew! 😀 Anyway! It’s a great flavor, infused with ginsing so, you can stay awake late at night. 🙂

Plus as an added bonus it’s got a yummy berry taste! So, caffeine? Check! Yummy Raspberry Taste? Check! Yummy Citrus taste? Check! Hypnotic Blue color that makes you go WOAH when the LCD lights of your computer shine through it? CHECK!

So, holy crap! It’s like it’s got everything! Not quite, hold your panties right there mister! That might be enough for any other tom, dick, harry and radcliffe, but not for the SHAIDE! No sir! I’m picky when it comes to what soft drinks I guzzle down.

My first complaint is that there’s no DIET version, and if there is, well our store doesnt bloody well carry the diet version. Granted, we are a small town, and our store is slightly small and we only have the one, but by god we are grateful for that, cause otherwise we would have t drive 1 and a half hours to the next store, in order to pick up a bloody loaf of bread so we can finish making our peanut butter sammitch!

so, yea best as I know, theres no DIET.

The second problem I have with this soda-pop (Thats hillybilly speak for cola people) is that it affects me funny. Now, granted I admit this could be just me, as I have not read or heard of anyone else having this issue. I’m not really sure how to say it, but shortly after drinking the blue potion of yummyness my bowels release! Actually, that’s not entirely accurate. When I eat cheese foods, my bowels release. When I drink this? my arse turns into a bloody sprinkler system!

anyway, other than those issues, its great! Try some! Just has some depends or something handy if you are drinking it on the road. You know, in order to be on the safe side “Just in case”. 😉
