I enjoy looking for the first sign of Christmas at Costco. Holiday season is crazy good time.  It's only natural for me to look for it.  It usually starts with these ribbons. The ribbons came back this year as usual.  These ribbons don't scream Christmas~!.  But they will do.

Costco Shopping - August, 3 2017

Today was the first day of August Costco Coupon cycle, so I bought a few items.  It was just a quick in and out shopping.

I don't know if Focus Factor really works.  At this point, I am afraid to get off of Focus Factor to see if my work performance will suffer. I do computer work at a large company.  One error, one click can cost me hours of trouble shooting time.  Focus is very important for my job.  I have a coworker who often spends hours trying to troubleshoot his own work.  The guy never learns.  But, I will not tell him about Focus Factor.  "Hey, dude, take these, so you don't suck so bad"...

I don't remember seeing Costco Nut Bars in the past.  They are Kirkland Signature products, so you know they are good. They are not chewy like some other fancy bars.  But I like these Nut Bars.  They are tasty.  $16.89 for 30 bars is a really good price.  There was no coupon for these Nut Bars. But it was a special price.  Either these are temporary items (they will sell out) or they will raise the price next round. $16.89 is a good buy.  I may buy one more.

I have no problem trashing 40% of my strawberries

2 comments.

(grumpy old man)

I rarely buy fruits and vegetables at Costco.  There are few exceptions, but generally speaking, it's not logical for a single person living alone to buy fruits and vegetables in Costco size.  27% of all Americans live alone, that's 88 million people living alone in the US.

Then I saw this video promoting us to save food. 40% of food in America is going to waste, it says.  The video shows strawberries being spoiled and getting dumped to a trash can.

As a single person living alone, this promotional video rubs me in the wrong way.

  1. First of all, it sucks that we trash 40% of our food.  I will try harder not to waste food That's given. but...
  2. I can't help but wondring that.. if they know 40% of strawberries are going to waste, why don't they sell strawberries in containers that are 40% smaller? how about any other produce items? Why don't they package them in smaller containers?  possibly in paper containers (bags).
  3. I'm pretty sure that a team of experts decided what sizes strawberry containers should be.  And they knew 40% of strawberries will go to waste.  So, fate was decided by corporations and regulations, not us who cannot eat the whole thing.
  4. I will not put a pacifier on a gallon jug of milk and complain that babies don't finish their milk.  No promotional video will change the outcome.
  5. If I want strawberries I will buy strawberries, but I will not force-feed myself.  I will not force myself to eat strawberries day after day after day... until I finish entire package.  Even if I buy smallest package, some of the strawberries are likely to go to waste.  And I have absolutely no problem with that.
  6. In short, if they really care about food going to waste, they should make the packages smaller. They do it with blueberries.  So, why not with strawberries?  There are 88 million of us living alone in the United States.  Some of us are tiny old people.  We will not apologize for NOT having large stomach.

Thank you.

Maury Splits

It's almost Christmas time at Costco.

Today I went to Costco and looked everywhere for the first sign of Christmas.  But, I couldn't find any.  So I drank a sample cup of Vitamix juice and went back to work.  I will look again next week.

Maury Splits

I still record Maury show and watch them after work.  I love Maury Show so much that, last year, I traveled 3000 miles to Stamford Connecticut to attend Maury Show.  Here's my blog about the trip on December 2016

On Maury Show, there is a special move - we call it "Maury Splits".  Sometimes, when female guests want to express her feelings, they may do splits on stage.  For example, one might say "I am so positive you are the father, I will do the splits."  Then she would proceed to spread her legs on live stage.  If you think about it, it makes a perfect sense.  She must feel very positive about what she's saying in order for her to do splits on stage.  So, we tend to give her more credit for it.  Maury Splits is a powerful tool to persuade audience.

You don't always see the splits on Maury Show, it's a special treat.

You may do Maury Splits when you are happy.  You may do Maury Splits when you are frustrated.  You may do Maury Splits when you want to prove your innocence.  Maury Splits is a versatile body language, kind of like the word "Aloha"  - except for spreading of legs.

Maury Splits is fun, rare, and special.  Check it out.

Talk to you later.  Aloha!

Maury Splits - Maury Show
