Weekend!

I had a pretty good weekend!

Friday night I bought and played Picross, which is awesome.

Saturday I worked from 9-2:30. Is it sad that it was luxurious not to have to go in to work until 9? It was blissful to sleep until 8am. How sad is that?

After work, I drove down to Stephenville to get Dublin Dr Peppers. Just so you guys know, you can fit a total of 168 bottles and 144 cans of Dublin Dr Pepper in a shopping cart safely, but it makes for a heavy and slow-moving shopping cart. Hard to steer, too. People did a lot of double-takes, and one guy stopped and asked me why I was getting so many. I told him about my mom's store, and how I was also getting some for friends who had given me money, and he understood. Apparently he does the same thing when he goes to visit friends who live in south Texas.

Also, I fell once. I was kneeling down, putting a case of the bottles on the rack under the cart, and I lost my balance and fell back. I almost dropped the case and knocked another off the shelf, but somehow managed not to, and just landed on my behind. Scared this older guy who happened to be passing. He helped me up and asked if I was okay :-)

I trudged up to the cash registers and a lady got in line behind me. She got this horrified look on her face when she saw my cart, and asked, "You... you aren't going to unload all those, are you?" I laughed and said "ha ha ha NO." I just told the cashier lady how many of each there were, and she only had to ring them up once and tell the register to multiply.

Then I sloooooowly rolled my cart out to my car, and loaded it all into my trunk. One guy drove by in his truck, and I saw his face as he looked in my trunk and saw everything in there. His eyes got really wide.

I had 28 6-packs of bottles, in 7 cases, and 24 6-packs of cans, in 6 cases. That's a total of 168 bottles and 144 cans. The bottles were 8 ounces each, and the cans were 12 ounces each... so that 3072 liquid ounces of delicious Dublin Dr Pepper. At 41 milligrams of caffeine per 12 ounces, that's 10,496 milligrams of caffeine. Very nice.

I just realized, though, that I think I miscalculated, and told the cashier I had 24 6-packs of the bottles. The way I had them stacked in the cart, I know how I missed them, so it was an honest mistake, but I still feel bad. I emailed my mom about it. :-\

Here is a table! )

Isn't that cool? I like tables. ♥

So then I made the 2 hour drive from Stephenville to Palmer. Then I got to unload all the bottles out of my trunk, from under all the cans, into the back room of my mom's store. Cases of bottles like that are heavy, guys. Then I followed my mom out to Ennis for dinner at Chili's, and it was yummy. Then I went home and died slept like a rock.

Today (Sunday), I slept innnnnnnnnn. I woke up around 11ish, but I lounged in bed for a while before actually getting up. Tesla like that, because I petted her and gave her lots of attention. Then I got up and showered and ate ramen and had a Dublin Dr Pepper. There is NOTHING tastier than "oriental" flavor ramen and Dublin Dr Pepper. I don't know why they go together so well, but there ya go. Then I got a call from [livejournal.com profile] drninja requesting a ride and hangouts, and since I've not hung out with him in approximately a billion years, I said "YES" and it was cool. And then I came home and complained to the apartment office about the lack of hot water for my showers lately (two mornings in a row. I like my showers HOT, thankyouverymuch), and within an hour the guy had come out and fixed it. Yay! Hopefully I will have a hot shower tomorrow morning.

I'm tired. My back muscles hurt from those stupid heavy bottles. I'm going to bed. GOODNIGHT.

Weekend!

ATTENTION LOCAL PEEPS.

This Sunday (or maybe this Saturday) I will be going down to Stephenville to pick up a TON of Dublin Dr Peppers for my mom's store (by the way, my mom owns a store now, did I ever mention that?). If any of y'all want any, give me MONIES and I will get you some.

I called the WalMart and they said that cans are $1.98 for 12 and bottles are $3.48 for 6. However, the more I think about it, the more I think maybe they misquoted me on the cans... they might be $1.98 for 6, since they come in 6-packs. I should maybe call them back again.

LET ME KNOW.

Guess what I just drank...


go on, guess...


it was really interesting, to say the least...


you'll never guess...


give up? )


Interesting, no? Pretty weird, but oddly tasty. You have to get the proportions *just right* though.


I don't think I do that again, though.

Also, who wants to go to Dublin, Texas, to see the Oldest Dr Pepper Bottling Plant in the World with me? If not there, then the Dr Pepper Museum will be fine, too. Whichever my history prof approves.

Yes, history prof.

As in, I get to visit one and GET A GRADE FOR IT. I am very excited.

I'm thinking I will go Saturday Sept 20. I'll drive unless someone else wants to.

Oh, and I'll of course pick up Dublin DP for anyone who gets me money before then (or can promise the money soon thereafter, upon delivery). Because Dublin DP = nectar of the gods.

Oh, look, it's my fridge, with two twelve-packs of Dr Pepper beside it... why aren't they being put into my fridge??
Hmm... )

Yes, I do know that that is the UGLIEST shade of grey ever, and no, I don't know why that color was picked for our carpet.

I'm not addicted, I can quit any time I want, I swear. I just don't want to yet. Yeah, that's it...

And I can't even have a glass of milk, cause I drank the last of that last night.
