Addiction LXXVI

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I think I was asleep by then.

I did. I liked it even more due to the fact that Altuve thought he had it, and was rather cranky when he got robbed. I like Altuve, and think he's awesome, but no one "deserves" a home run.

Those terms are only used in the BF Bubble.

I can't stomach candy corn, but that's just me. Lately, I've had a stroopwafel problem.

I got my first quart of egg nog for the season!

I didn't put any SoCo in it though; it's the candy corn of whiskies.

I also got a cheesecake, and pondered what it would be like to sit down to a nice slice of cheesecake and chase it down with eggnog.

My wife picked up some the other week, I forget where, though, and Aldi got in a fresh batch a few days ago. Both were good, but the Aldi were better. They might be different than years past - the packaging is different, they were in those octagonal boxes and they seem to be a little more tender (though it's been a year, so maybe I'm misremembering).
