    I'm my limited experience with ordering ramen for takeout/deliver, the quality takes a huge hit when you aren't getting it "fresh" with the dine in experience. It's just not the same. That also goes for pho.

    I agree entirely. I usually never order ramen online, but I was craving some. This place had never let me down before, both dining in and delivery, and they're a bit far from us. I hadn't had them since before COVID hit though, and I know they've basically turned their restaurant into a Korean/Japanese convenience store and will only sell meals through delivery services. Same menu as always. Guess the change just wasn't good for the restaurant side of the business. :(

    I bought a small apple pie for breakfast today. I get home and it's around 10:30-10:45am. I turn the oven on, and plop it on a pan.

    I look at the package. .... it says 45-55min to cook.....damn... It'll be almost lunchtime by the time it's done.

    Yeah, that was my first guess. Algorithms are tricky things that don't quite get it right. Lesbian pronz = Subaru fetish to the ad generators.

    Which explains why I've been getting so many ads for horse whips, leather bridles and ski masks.

    I always log into chrome so my pronz history follows me to work. Which is probably why I'm constantly getting spammed with russian bride shit at work.

    Huh. This conversation is going places. :)

    Now all I'm getting from tiktok is a reminder I should have worn a dress to work so I'd have looked pretty while I was getting fucked. My check's going to be double what it normally is..but goddamn...

    Also...this song is a lot catchier than it should be.

    Nice, man. Pretty bad-ass looking carve.

    In SoDak it's so windy we don't even bother with candles anymore. We grab extra bright glow sticks for them. Can't be blown out. You don't get the shadow play of a flickering flame, but beggars can't be choosers.

    I was considering putting some battery powered lamp in there, but luckily the wind stopped so I didn't need to do anything.

    I fucking love the macrame hanger hahahaha that's so momblog cozycore.

    Also, electric battery powered candles are the shit. I have four of the tall ones in my house that I also use for stage shows, they last forever, don't burn anything down, and look just like real candles. I turn mine on for multiple hours every day and the batteries have lasted over 6 months.



    As for me, my first world problem currently is that I can't find a non-dairy nog that's worth a shit. So Delicious is the only brand I've found so far that tastes reasonably close to nog and it seems to have fallen victim to supply shortages. It's surprising considering it can't be any more complicated than some sugar, carageenan, and fucking pumpkin spice, but every other brand has managed to cock it up including my most recent purchase, Chobani Oat Nog which has the aftertaste of poison.

    found a really cheap unloaded diezel 4x12 but it's like an hour away and in the middle of nowhere.
