My Mind is a Vast Wasteland
I wanted to post today, but my brain is feeling flabby or something. So, I go to my old standby, Taradays, and note that today is Dried Food Day. I had already commented there that I ate some of that bowl of noodle soups on Saturday and that dried food is pretty cool and scientists should spend some time perfecting movie effect dried foods. So, what else could I say about dried foods? I Googled "dried foods" and I found this interesting article about an unusual way of reconstituting dried foods for people in perilous conditions. So, that was quite a thinker... After pondering that for a bit, my mind went to freeze dried coffee, like Folger's crystals, right? Instant coffee. I have a small container on hand in case I ever have a coffee emergency, but mostly I use my standard drip coffee maker...or well, I used to. Now, truthfully, I mostly stop at Circle K or 7-11 on my way to work and lay down $1.49 for 24 ounces of pleasure. Seems like a bargain. Still, I don't think even coffee would help my brain right now. I can almost see the tumbleweeds and hear the whistle of the lonely wind.
