I think the last ingredient is Chocobo spit...

So, as a kind of promotion for the new Final Fantasy XII they're selling 'potions'. And, being a nerd (but not as much of a nerd as a certain other person I could name), of course I had to get one. I was expecting some kind of nice refreshing yummy drink, you know maybe some lemon-fizzy type thing, but NO! This was thoroughly, thoroughly grosserific.

Shoulda read the label before I drank it, the ingredients are "isomerized sugar, sugar, royal jelly, propolis extract, elder, chamomile, sage, thyme, hyssop, fennel, marjoram, rosemary, sweet basil, lemon balm, acidulant, flavoring, CAFFEINE, sodium benzoate, sodium phosphate, vitamin B6, vitamin B1 and blue #1".

I'll have to admit it was quite energizing, and I could feel my hit-points returning as I drank it, but purely as a taste sensation it gets a negative score.

Invigorating but nasty!

Just Nuke It!

I recently bought a microwave at a sayonara sale for one of the teachers from Takarazuka, but it turned out to be a bit of a lemon. Erica and I got it hooked up and then spent about 10 minutes randomly pushing buttons to try to get the $%&' thing to start, but to no avail. Finally I thwumped the door closed extra-hard and it miraculously started! We soon discovered that the door was unbalanced and have since remedied the problem by propping it open with my Spanish dictionary. (I guess it finally came in handy after all.)

Over and out! Goog Niter
