I had a dog for lunch today. It was a good day

I had one, too. I hadn't known you could ask for extra condiments at the cash, so it was the first time I'd had a 'Co dog with sauerkraut. Also, they stocked Clif Builder's protein bars again after several weeks without, so it was an extra good day.

My wife and I usually get a dog each, one beef one Polish, then cut them and swap halves so we each get some of both kinds.

Sometimes I go to Costco alone, though, and those days I must choose. :(

Hello there, Costco EXECUTIVE MEMBERô here, checking in to say that I have scoured the earth from end to end searching for great deals. I am happy to report that the Costco Hot Dog and a Drink combo for one and a half United States Dollars remains the greatest deal on this planet.

Really? Because I pay one and a half Canadian Dollars for the same, which comes out to $1.20 USD (or $1.38 USD after tax).

Guys, I was feeling a bit crazy today, so I had a dog for breakfast*!!! The obvious benefit being that, for the first time, they had all of the extra condiments, so I was able to have a dog with onions, sauerkraut, and hot peppers! It was great.

Also, I bought my wife a Sherpa blanket on this threadís recommendation. Hereís hoping she likes it.

Yesterday I bought one of the Queen size plush blankets and it absolutely blows the Sherpa away. It says Queen size, but the loving thing dwarfs my Queen size bed. Itís super warm, but it breathes, so you donít get all sweaty and gross underneath it. I had so much trouble getting out of bed this morning, I just wanted to live underneath that blanket forever.

Where in the store is the Sherpa located. I go tomorrow for various goodies. This much hype must be a sign of good things. Its gettin' cold outside too.

Usually where the blankets, mats, and pillows are, in the central aisle towards the front, just past the protein powder.

If you use hearing aids:

CVS 48 hearing aid batteries: $29.18

That alone more than saves the membership fee over a year. CVS can suck allll the dicks.

This is especially great for us, because my mother-in-law canít hear a damned thing without her hearing aids, which she never wears, anyways, but leaves turned on all the time regardless so that she goes through, like, two batteries a week.

So, itís been weeks since either of the Costcos I frequent have had sauerkraut for my dog. At this point, I had just about given up. I had been forsaken. So today I planned ahead. I packed a tiny liíl Tupperware of my own sauerkraut for my dog!

So, apparently my local Costcos have replenished their sauerkraut stores. :doh:

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, Iíve 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

But he just canít seem to get the hang of taking selfies himself because his arms are too short, so I got the selfie sticks to give to him when he visits again this summer.

I grab a bag of the Taylor Farms sweet kale salad and a package of the Pintyís prepared chicken breasts, then just portion both out in 150 g servings. One of each plus a little bit of Frankís Red Hot sauce (0 calories!) is a good, healthy meal.
