Consumer Reports

I'm a consumer and here's my report.

The yogurt covered pretzels I got from Trader Joes this weekend were a big step down from what they used to be or at least what my tongue remembers.

And I keep trying to find cold, summer food like wraps and salads there that are good and I keep failing. The latest try was Peanut Udon Noodle Salad. Ugh. Oh well, now I know. Happily I had an ice cream bar in the freezer which chased away that ugh taste.

I think I found my new walking shoes. As usual, I got a bunch of different options. There was an issue with each pair - too short, too long, ugh! what's that thing rubbing??!, etc. Until I hit the Goldilocks pair.

I'll pop the rest back in the box and tape on the label and take them down to the garage in a bit so that UPS can pick them up tomorrow.

And finally, the computer. I don't love it. But, I don't hate it. It is huge. 15" compared to my little 11+" one. The monitor sucks. The Pixelbook has probably the sharpest clearest picture of any computer ever. And this Samsung has probably the muddiest. But it's otherwise pristine. Amazon Warehouse promised significant cosmetic blemishes. I cannot find a one. They do this to me all the time. I've ordered tons of used stuff from them and only one time was I ever able to see a blemish or anything else wrong. And that was on a litter box. Who cares? Not me. The warehouse prices are always good - sometimes half.

So I will keep this. And if I don't open up the Pixelbook too often, maybe I'll get used to the screen. It sure is huge. Spreadsheet heaven.

Time to tape boxes.
