There's lumberthing I want to tell you
 
This is my thread. I'm the boss of it. This is the thread where I will tell you things I want to tell you. You should make one of your own, so that you could tell me things and I could read them if I want to. I'm not saying don't post in this thread. I'm not even saying don't talk about the things you want to talk about in this thread. I'm just saying that I'm going to post things I want to tell you in this thread. So, when i want to tell you something, I'm just going to put it here. I'm not going to go searching about looking for some thread where the topic was discussed. I'm tired of doing all the work for you. You can go find the thread it makes you think of if you want. suit yourself.

Anyway, here's the first thing I want to tell you, now that I have this thread for things I want to tell you:

I bought a tin of Virginia Peanuts at Wegman's tonight. A tin. not a ton. They say Super Extra Jumbo or some triple superlative like that on the front. They come in a TIN. I don't know if you caught that. It's like a fucking paint can. They even give you a little pry tool taped to the lid. And inside that lid, there's a heavy foil seal. You have to cut it with the sharper end of the pry tool, or a knife would work, too... and ... it was $8.99. That sounds like a lot for peanuts. Maybe cashews or pistachios... but peanuts usually go for... well, peanuts.

OK, so you know how when your sitting there shelling and eating peanuts, and getting that shit all over you while you watch a football game, and out of nowhere, you get that one exceptional peanut that tastes so fucking good, it makes that shit all over you just fine? And then you eat WAY more than you should, just hoping to get one more nut like that good one?

These are ALL like that good one. Each and every goddamned one of them. Perfect Huge peanuts. And no shit all over you either.

I'm pretty sure we already have a thread about your nuts, Jim. :D

This belongs in the food forum. I'm going to merge the post there.

I don't like peanuts, so no.

I imagine all the sealing and extra you are paying for with the tin makes them extra fresh and seals in the all the flavor mere plastic, or even metallized plastic can not.

thank gawd. hardly anyone starts a new thread for every single random thought they have, anymore.

i agree about the peanuts. it's been a long time since i've had a perfect peanut. i'm jealous. i have peanuts envy.

infinite monkey 06-06-2013 09:48 AM

Turkish hazelnuts are great.

Sundae 06-06-2013 10:54 AM

Turkish nuts are revolting.

ZenGum 06-06-2013 11:06 AM

Actually, I think the nuts are in power. So I guess it is the fruits which are revolting.

jimhelm 06-07-2013 11:47 AM

They water blanch the nuts, which is what gives them the awesome crunchiness. Anyway, I love them. These will be a staple in my cabinet.

Ok, do you iphone people use Siri?

Well, theres an android version called 'Robin'

Works just like Siri. You can teach it responses to questions, too. Like when I say, Robin, count to three. It says one...two....five!

Probably the most useful thing for me so far is, I can say, ' text amanda ' and it will ask for what I want to say, and then text it for me. I only have to hit the mic button once. It will also read your texts aloud. you just have to say Robin, read texts. it starts with new messages and works its way backwards until you hit the button again to stop it.

Siri does stuff like that. It's pretty cool.

Undertoad 06-07-2013 12:18 PM

If you have Jelly Bean, the android version of Siri is Google.


ZenGum 06-07-2013 09:01 PM

Robin! From now on, you will address me as Batman!

orthodoc 06-08-2013 02:36 AM

No, Robin addresses me as Batgirl. Get your own Robin.

Plus ... I also have peanuts envy. Wegmans' nuts are 35 miles away and not always of dependable access or quality. Need good nuts now. Please remedy asap.
