My tires are in at the warehouse, now to book my installation time and dog eating time. Might skip the dog and go straight for the poutine though.

Stopped by Costco today and it was bananas (B-A-N-A-N-A-S). Thirty minutes before opening there was a line up out into the parking lot. As soon as they opened, I scooted over to the food counter. I had skipped breakfast, I’ve been fighting a nasty chest cold all week, and they had all of the dressings, so I decided to go for the ultra rare double dog today. The energy from those dogs helped me get through the crowds, get everything I needed, and drive home through stupid traffic just in time to put my groceries away and collapse with exhaustion. PBUC

EDIT: Also, apparently my city is colder than the Antarctic and Mars today.

Regent Costco?

That Panasonic toaster oven looks pretty rad.

I started using double-edged safety razors a few years ago? They're both better and cheaper. I'm never going back. Getting people onto cartridges must've been an advertising coup on par with inventing the 'bacon & eggs' breakfast.

The only downside is that you have to be mindful of force and angle. If I shaved all over or had shaky hands, I'd use cartridges. But for normal everyday face-shaving, the safety razor is better and cheaper.

This is 100% the truth. I spent $35 on a safety razor and something like 50 blades almost two years ago and I'm still using them. Cartridge razors are a waste, even from our blessed Costco.

Edit - just bought one. Really good battery for $75 with return of old battery. Amazing.


Also, chili is great. Al Pastor salad is gone from this one. Replaced with real beef.

I bought a Kirkland brand battery 3 years ago, it's worked admirably, starting my car on cold winter days with the block heater not plugged in.

They last for much longer than that if stored properly but most people don't have a root cellar so it's understandable.

What's wrong with Costco glasses?

Xaris posted:

Nothing is exactly wrong. Costco glasses are good, good warrenty; however, their actual impact and importance has gone down over the last 10 years. They were great back in the 90s to late 00s because the competition was $400 Luxotica monopoly bullshit and getting a pair for like $150-200 was a great deal then. It's less so now because you can actually get super high quality glasses online for like <$50. Costco still has some advantages for glasses like trying them on first, or fittings (it's not hard to do yourself). If that's worth it, that's up to you to decide if the additional $$ is worth it. I personally feel like no.

I still do my eye exam at Costco because it's like $45 (tho the wait list can be pretty bad).

Ah, I've had rough luck getting glasses that fit and look correct on my dumb face so I might stick with in person purchasing.

I can't imagine buying glasses online. Every time I think I'm going to look good in a pair of glasses, I try them on and I end up looking like a giant dork, so I much prefer trying them on first. I also don't trust my ability to size or adjust my glasses right.

It also helps my vision insurance is very good and my cousin is a optometrist so every time I get my eyes checked I get treated like a VIP.

e: her first job out of eye doctor school was the Costco vision department hell yeah

My expectation for how glasses should look on my face and how they actually look is a vast gulf.

A couple of them? You'll be fine. They have a touch of snap to them so it depends how your digestive system handles any spice. They're not too spicy to eat alone, but it might get weird

I tried the Banza chickpea pasta based on the thread's recommendation. I can confirm that Banza + $4.99 chicken + pesto is a solid combo.

One word of warning though, the box mentions it can foam a bit. They're not lying, I turned my back on it for 30 seconds and my stove top was suddenly reenacting the end of Ghostbusters.

Placing a wood spoon across the top of the pot causes the bubbles to dissipate before they spill over. It probably doesn't need to be wood. It works for regular pasta, should work for this.

And yes, it's the closest to real pasta I've found. Don't care about gluten but the macros are solid.
