Isn't "first world" called something different now? I thought that "third world" was now "the global south" or somesuch...

Ran outta cream for my coffee. Had to break down and use eggnog. It tastes good, but come on!
I love the Nog. Substituting it for half and half is a holiday tradition!

We were talking to a waiter at a barbecue joint today. "After working here two years, I can't eat smoked meats anymore. I'm just tired of smoked meat. I don't eat anything we have on the menu here anymore. It's a real first world problem, I know."

As soon as he said that, I knew where I needed to share his problem. I raced home to log onto my laptop! You're welcome.
Remind me never to take a job at a smokehouse.

My email provider decided that eBay's watch list notifications are SPAM, and so I missed getting notified for a couple cool pipes that both sold for under 10 bucks.
eBay watch list is too big to manage without email notifications...
Had to change eBay account password because my wife uses my account, and figured out how to check how many pipes are on the watch list..

The antibiotics I was prescribed for my cut thumb don't taste like bubble gum. :(

I run a small hotel in New Orleans. It's in Louisiana, in case you're thinking of another New Orleans I've never heard of.
