Cat lady ()

(This would be a comic, but I don't feel like drawing lately. Meh.)

So, on the subway on the way to work, I was standing in front of a woman who had a duffel bag and a soft pet carrier. Between these two vessels she was juggling perhaps half a dozen young kittens, wiping their eyes of cruft and otherwise consoling them.

She put most of the kittens into the duffel bag, but left it open so they could peek out. One of the kittens, obviously her favorite, she kept in her jacket. She talked to this kitten all the way to Union Square.

Hot cocoa mix ()

On the side of a box of hot chocolate mix:
99.9% caffeine free
Does this mean that a 35-gram packet of cocoa mix is made up of 0.1% caffeine? Because if so, 350 35mg of caffeine is actually rather a lot...

Crest Fresh Citrus Breeze ()

by fluffy at 12:34 AM
Remember how when you were a kid, your parents thought you weren't brushing your teeth enough so they thought that maybe it's because you didn't like mint and so they'd buy you that kid-oriented orange-flavored toothpaste, which tasted even worse so you'd brush even less?

Well, Crest has updated the flavor for adults, and it's actually pretty tasty. It tastes kind of like hot orange juice with cinnamon, only not hot, and the cinnamon might be a figment of my imagination. It also doesn't taste particularly like orange, either. But still, it's pretty yummy as far as toothpaste goes. Probably still not particularly edible though.
