Product review time

The following two pictures were shot last night. As you can see, I am under the blanket somewhere, and the kittens are BRAVELY attempting to find me as they think I am asleep. I took the pictures with my cell phone. ;) I am using Doc's computer so, I have not downloaded the images from the camera yet. I will most likely have to do a photo montage when I get around to doing it.

The first product review comes to us from, "They gave us a republic". Please endure reading in full this authors letter to a general manager about a product.

"Dear Mr. Thatcher,

I have been a loyal user of your 'Always' maxi pads for over 20 years and I appreciate many of their features. Why, without the LeakGuard Core or Dri-Weave absorbency, I'd probably never go horseback riding or salsa dancing, and I'd certainly steer clear of running up and down the beach in tight, white shorts.. But my favorite feature has to be your revolutionary Flexi-Wings. Kudos on being the only company smart enough to realize how crucial it is that maxi pads be aerodynamic. I can't tell you how safe and secure I feel each month knowing there's a little F-16 in my pants.

Have you ever had a menstrual period, Mr. Thatcher? I'm guessing you haven't. Well, my time of the month is starting right now. As I type, I can already feel hormonal forces violently surging through my body. Just a few minutes from now, my body will adjust and I'll be transformed into what my husband likes to call 'an inbred hillbilly with knife kills.'

Isn't the human body amazing?

As Brand Manager in the Feminine-Hygiene Division, you've no doubt seen quite a bit of research on what exactly happens during your customer's monthly visits from 'Aunt Flo'. Therefore, you must know about the bloating, puffiness, and cramping we endure, and about our intense mood swings, crying jags, and out-of-control behavior. You surely realize it's a tough time for most women.

The point is, sir, you of all people must realize that America is just crawling with homicidal maniacs in Capri pants... Which brings me to the reason for my letter. Last month, while in the throes of cramping so painful I wanted to reach inside my body and yank out my uterus, I opened an Always maxi-pad, and there, printed on the adhesive
backing, were these words: 'Have a Happy Period.'

Are you f------ kidding me? What I mean is, does any part of your tiny middle-manager brain really think happiness - actual smiling, laughing happiness, is possible during a menstrual period? Did anything mentioned above sound the least bit pleasurable? Well, did it, James? FYI,unless you're some kind of sick S&M freak, there will never be anything 'happy' about a day in which you have to jack yourself up on Motrin and Kahlua and lock yourself in your house just so you don't march down to the local Walgreen's armed with a hunting rifle and a sketchy plan to end your life in a blaze of glory.

For the love of God, pull your head out, man! If you have to slap a moronic message on a maxi pad, wouldn't it make more sense to say something that's actually pertinent, like 'Put down the Hammer' or 'Vehicular Manslaughter is Wrong'.

Sir, please inform your Accounting Department that, effective immediately, there will be an $8 drop in monthly profits, for I have chosen to take my maxi-pad business elsewhere. And though I will certainly miss your Flex-Wings, I will not for one minute miss your brand of condescending bullsh!t. And that's a promise I will keep.

Always. . .

Next on the list is awsome Cheeseburgers from the home grill or frying pan. The name of the spice is "Gourmet Burger" and it is by Weber. ( the link goes to the product description at Sam's club, sorry the best I could do, I bought it at Walmart). Now, we tried this spice over the holiday and it was great. The burgers tasted a lot like the ones from Red Robin. Kept them juicy and gave them a little bite and a lot of flavor. I really liked it. Doc liked it. The kids liked it.

There was something else but I can't remember what it was. Sorry.

Edit - other product review. Pit killer.

I have been using the Dove , clinical strength, the one with the green label. Recently I picked up the one with the orange/yellow label by accident. I love the way it smells! Even when you get up in the morning... LOL... it still smells great!
