Limited Edition!

I'm fascinated by the recent trend in junk food to release "Limited Edition" versions of their foods. I've seen Reese's using these promotions for a number of different versions of their classic peanut butter cup, Hershey's has jumped into the game with a number of different Limited Edition versions of their chocolate bar (with toffee or mocha or ants, whatever), and I know I've seen others.

I'm sure it's just some manipulative attempt to get the consumer to buy now! because this special Limited Edition food won't be available for long!

And it works. I have to admit that I've tried a couple of candy-bars in the past couple of months based on the fact that if I didn't try it now, it probably wouldn't be around in the future. Damn me! Now they'll continue doing these sorts of lame promotions. Maybe I'll do that to my blog posts; leave them up for a while, then delete them, so you'll need to read them when they come out or run the risk of missing out entirely! Whew! My readership would skyrocket!

Seattle drivers continue to lack the ability to merge. It really is maddening.

Last week and this weekend were good. I've been spending a lot of time alphabetizing my Magic cards still, but I should be done with that soon since I only have about a box left to go. Then I can clean up my apartment again, which has been neglected for a while now due to this project.

I picked up some empty record sleeves this weekend, so I can finally take the albums out of the record covers that I'm going to hand on the walls. I was glad to finally stop and get those. Can you imagine if I hung those and then hung the DVD cases I purchased almost two years ago? It'd be like a whole new apartment!

I think I'm going to Vancouver this weekend. It means I'll have to miss Halloween (sorry, Jason, I meant to tell you today, but I just remembered). I'll let you know how it goes.

By the way, happy birthday to Jason. He's a great guy and I hope he has a great 27th year.

Jen sent around some pictures of previous Halloweens, feel free to check them out! 2003 and 2004.

Okay, that's enough babble for now. I swear I'll update more often than I have been. For some reason things have gotten away from me lately and it annoys me too.

Since I know you're lying about missing my party, it doesn't bother me that much.
