Yeah, well I don't trust this guy. I think he regifted, he degifted, and now he's using an upstairs invite as a springboard to a Super Bowl sex romp.


I bore witness to a blessing today, took a friend to Costco and anointed her with the dog and drink+refill. She got the refill and commented how generous the offerings were! Thank you for hearing my testimony. PBUC

also tried that fruit smoothie for the first time, it was rad but they put ice cream or something on top before blending?

Went to Costco drunk the other night. It was AWESOME. They had BBQ meatball samples, I had 5. I bought so much cheap delicious steak.

Hot dog and drink to wash it all down and re hydrate my soul.

yeah. they changed the recipe. they used to be really good. "The beloved Berry Smoothie cost a mere $1.45, while the new Fruit Smoothie costs $2.99. And according to the nutritional information card, at 15.5 ounces the new Fruit Smoothie is actually .5 ounces less than the old Berry Smoothie, which was a full 16 ounces."

"The Berry Smoothie had a mere 25mg of sodium, but the new Fruit Smoothie has a whopping 200mg of sodium. Umm that’s an astonishing 700% increase in sodium!! What? The? Heck? For a smoothie that doesn’t contain protein powder, nuts or nut butters those sodium levels are rather alarming. That’s a huge negative change."

The old berry smoothie was amazing, and it makes me very sad that it's gone. It's not as bad as if they removed the pizza, but almost.

poo poo, I thought it was that actually but the neophyte I had taken down the path thought it was ice cream. You made me happy I asked but sad to hear the prior smoothie was superior!

I'm partial to the giant kirkland cheesecakes, especially the ones with the strawberry glaze. the one I bought fed a church potluck, thanksgiving dessert, with a few slices left over for the missus and I to enjoy after work. truly a miracle!

I don't need it but I want some korean bbq pork jerky.


I've got the dehydrator out this time of year making my own jerky. Normally use a London Broil cut of meat but I've always read that Eye of Round is best but its usually hard to get nice pieces at the local grocer. I think a trip to the 'Co might be in order.

Flank steak makes great jerky. Skirt does also, but flank is a little better.

I opted for the giant pecan pie instead. It was the right choice. I finished the last half of it by my goddamn self like the pathetic animal that I am.

It was too delicious for the garbage.

Been reading through the thread, and the Costcos in my hometown are one of those active warzone places. The one that is close to the university is constantly packed with Asians and the parking lot is hell to get in and out of. The other is just off the highway so it gets a ton of traffic too AND a few years ago had an old lady back her car through the front doors killing a child and caused the mother to miscarry...

My Costco might not have all the blessings of your Costco but now that winter is upon us let me share why our Costco is the greatest Costco:

It was a snowy January day, 2016, and while it wasn't a "blizzard" the snow was accumulating quickly. My wife, our 6 month old daughter and I needed to get out of the house and my wife had (astutely) gotten us new Costco executive memberships so we decided to go shopping.

I was a skeptic for so long, friends, I had never taken the sacrament, had never even stepped foot through those beautiful doors with the fresh tire smell wafting across the entrance. I was cynical, and believed Costco was just Wal-Mart for snobs.

So we ventured out, armed with our oversized Scandanavian SUV, over snowy roads to Costco. I was getting worried, though, because the snow was intensifying. While I felt safe on the roads I was already annoyed at trudging through a parking lot to go shopping on this cold, snowy day. However, we pulled up to the building and through the lightly falling snow only to find that our Costco has covered parking. We pulled in to an enormous parking lot safe from the elements. Warm shoppers pushing large carts full of treasures smiled despite the awful weather outside as they loaded up their bounties before returning home.

We went inside, I took the sacrament for the first time and I spun, dizzily, at the array of wonderful things we never knew we needed.

Yes I'm aware and 98% of the time I'm like "wow Chinese manufacturing married to Scandinavian design is really quite impressive actually!" and 2% of the time I'm like "THIS CHEAP CHINESE PIECE OF poo poo WHY WOULD YOU ENGINEER THIS THAT WAY?"

I just visited China in October and I'm quite wary about a lot of things arising from there but the car seems fine and we've enjoyed it very much thusly.
