I do a commercial for I Can't Believe It's Not Butter at the same time: Really, I just cannot BELIEVE this is not butter.

Made me smile.

Living with me is a laugh a minute, even if it's just me living with me. I continue to do commercials and generally carry on my variety show AT ALL TIMES.

Except when it's Drama Hour.

Thanks Pete.

Hmm. You'd think they'd be better at it, then.

I suppose so. But we've bought many things from Sam that tasted fine.

This taste assessment from a man who freely admits to being unwilling to make his own coconut milk Greek yogurt?

Consider the source, indeed!

But it is an eligible purchase for WIC and food stamps ... says so on the shelf in the welfare supermarket.

I drove past the Stroehman factory some months back (which means it was probably over a year ago) and was very surprised to see Papa Stroehman's face off the sign, replaced by the nowhere near as personable Bimbo bear.

My other great regret was the closing down of the Wonder Factory. It was on my way to college (and pretty much darn near anywhere else south of me). I used to love getting stuck at that traffic light and be totally enveloped in the aroma of Wonderbread.

Every time I read 'Bimbo', I think of this:

That's Bimbo, the first pet I can remember.

As far as the lightbulbs are concerned ... I'm sticking with the real kind. I like having enough light to be able to read without straining.
