The happiest time of the year

Posted by dracoling


Tastykake pumpkin pie is back!

This is one of my favorite reasons for never moving out of the greater Philadelphia region. It's like a birthday present that lasts for 3 months of the year and I get to share it with my friends.

Om nom nom nom.

Thoughts on a sleepy morning

Posted by dracoling

Last night I made a whole bunch of paper stars. Paper stars are awesome. They're cute, simple, easy to make, and yet for some reason people get happy just playing with them. I love crafting things, for some reason just following some simple instructions and making something out of something else impresses the hell out of certain people.

Morning, Sunshine!: Experiment #001

Posted by dracoling

Welcome to the Morning Sunshine Experiment. I'm going to try every energy drink I can get my hands on... one at a time and rank them (primarily based on taste).

The first contestant: Full Throttle - Citrus Flavor

Bad Day in a Can
Bad Day in a Can

The following are my quotes on IRC while engaging in this experiment...

12:32 < dracoling> oh my god
12:32 < dracoling> how the fuck do they get the taste of "FML" in a can!?
12:34 < dracoling> NewsFlash
12:35 < dracoling> Full Throttle "Citrus" flavor still tastes like distilled self-hatred with a mild carbonation kick
12:35 < nullren> dracoling: that sounds like some cheap, prison hooch
12:36 < dracoling> prison hooch tastes better
12:43 < dracoling> AGH@#!$ this fucking eviljuice is attacking my heart
12:43 < dracoling> why does this always happen when I drink this shit?
12:43  * dracoling drinks more
12:43 < nullren> because you do that
12:43 < nullren> most people, when something is attacking their heart, they stop it
12:44 < dracoling> this needs vodka
12:44 < dlz> not dracoling
12:44 < dlz> he's hardcore
12:44 < dlz> HARD
12:44 < dlz> CORE
12:44 < dracoling> xxHARDCORExx
12:44 < dlz> HAR DUH
12:44 < dlz> KOR EH
12:45 < dracoling> 'panthothenic acid'
12:45 < dracoling> does that mean acid of the gods?
12:46 < dracoling> man, I hope the other can I bought tastes better
12:49 < dracoling> ow. goddamnit... fuckow...
12:50 < dracoling> must. finish. energy. drink. before. dying.
13:05 < dracoling> I was just told I look mad strung out
13:05 < dracoling> fuck yes
13:05 < dracoling> lol
13:05 < dracoling> "dude, you're drinking that full throttle shit again? You may as well just do an 8-ball!"
14:24 < dracoling> hokay so
14:24 < dracoling> I'm fecking tired now
14:24 < dracoling> stupid energy drink

I give this horrible taste abortion -100 points. It feels like I'm paying for my sins or something and I didn't even get a good buzz.

I read this just before last WildFire, saw it on the shelf on the way out this morning and decided to read it again.
