||Errands and silly stuff
Posted on October 14th, 2007
|Today consisted of errands. We visited McDonald's first, but they were not serving lunch yet, so we left and went to Wal*Mart. While we picked up a few things, the item we were mostly after wasn't there. After checking out, we returned to McDonald's and had lunch. This meal came to about $10 even and fit within my diet. I might be able to get something better next time.
Later in the evening we struck out for ACME in hopes of finding the elusive item we didn't find before. Once again it was not to be found, but we found cheap donuts. I got a glazed one and a maple cream stick. In the end the glazed donut was rather overdone and tasted like burnt pancakes.
The item we can't find are sanitary litter tray wipes. All of the stores around here had a bare spot in the pet section were such wipes were found, but there is no sign of them or a recall.
I spent the afternoon messing about with Fur and Faith. I also made a fresh background wallpaper using the bottom panel of today's Sinfest.
I ended up coming across two oddities involving chicken McNuggets today, and neither of these oddities are about what chicken McNuggets are made out of.
First there's the McNugget Number, a type of mathematical number based on the groups of McNuggets you can buy.
Secondly there's an 1984 murder that was claimed to have been caused by McNuggets. These days the lawsuit would probably win.
Lastly there's the famous music video on YouTube. Holly Dolly is an anthropomorphic donkey singing nonsense. The other characters pictured are rather politically incorrect.
