Oreo Cookies

Did you all see Ben and Jerry on the Colbert Report the other night? Well check out this Oreo demo:

Very funny stuff.

So I was just at the Grocery store just a couple minutes ago… And this is how a checkout SHOULD go. The guy in front of me didn’t have his Albertson’s card.. The cashier, turned to me, and said. ‘Do you have yours?’. I told her that I didn’t have it with me, she pulled hers out of her pocket and scanned it. No hastle, no stalling, no nothing. Just did it. Clearly she knows what’s going on! haha.

I’ve been using Macs for a while now, but every once in a while I find a new built in App that I just love. Two examples have come up in the last week. First, is DigitalColor Meter. I’ve been doing TONS of webdesign over the last couple months. Everytime my boss came to me and said. “You know I really like this color from such and such website” or “here’s a graphic can you use the primary colors from it”. I’d have to either digg through the CSS or open up Fireworks and use the color picker to figure out what color it was. Well with DigitalColor Meter, it’s very easy to open it up and just hover over it to get the color I need. Amazing. And the best part is, it comes built in. I really don’t think that your Windows box has something like that!?!?!

The second thing is FileMerge. I’ve been using Differences Examiner for years, and it’s a great utility, however it doesn’t let you see what parts of a line were changed, it’s written in Java so it’s slow and you can’t compare whole directories. So today I started to look for a new utility. And amazingly enough. Apple includes this amazing app called. “FileMerge”. Let me tell you it’s great! Apple you’ve done it again!

I can’t remember if I mentioned it before or not, but I did my taxes last week. I had to pay $500! Fuckers! :'( Soooo annoying.

This weekend is packed with things to do. I’m really looking forward to it!

My Jewel card and Dominick’s card both live on my key ring. Since I drive to the store, I always have my card. Even if I don’t drive, I have a large sized card in my wallet. I don’t see why it’s so incredibly hard to carry the card on you.

Because I keep my cards on the key ring that has all my house keys. If I’m just out and about and stop at the grocery store for something quick I don’t even think about bringing them with me. Usually it’s a last minute thing so I’d have to drive all the way home to get the key ring. I don’t like having a TON of stuff on my car key ring.

Second, I already have enough cards and shit in my wallet. I don’t need 4 more grocery store cards in there.

I do see why its so incredibly to just have one at the register to scan. Or in the bigger picture why you eve HAVE the damn card in the first place.

I’ll conceed point #3. I want Hy-Vee back. I miss the constant low prices without dealing with the card.

You are right… Windows does not have anything like that at all. Thanks for the tip. I wonder if Vista has anything like it…. I doubt it.
