Two Recent Yucks

I know we're all glad that I've discovered the joys of including pictures in my blog posts. Two weeks ago, youngest had an away swim meet. After dropping youngest off, Mr. D and I went for provisions.

First we went to Starbucks. I was immediately curious about the diet version of the Orange Creme Frappacino. It was awful. The drink lures you in with a good first impression, but then the aftertaste hits like a bad cough drop. Yuck.

Then we headed over to Wal-mart and ran across an interesting bag of Doritos. Mmmmmm, marketing ploy, we mused. We felt purchasing the chips would be okay because we knew we were being suckered in by the packaging, not just buying it blindly. Again, thumbs down all around. Mr. D threw the chips away because we knew we would keep eating them just to try to identify the odd flavor.

Yes, 1L summer....relaxing and trying desperately not to think about grades or school. Unfortunately I've been plagued by more law school dreams now than since before law school started. :P

the disgusting and confusing flavor of those chips is cheeseburger, FOR SURE. like, a Big Mac. funny thing is, the first flavor i identified was thousand-island dressing. after that, the ingredient list gave it away. ewwwwwww.

I tried a free sample of the orange creme mocha or whatever, and it was gross. I found the bits of orange peel (or something approximating it) floating around unappetizing.
