I can now claim that my future daughter in law is a super (cute) model.frenchdip
I don't think they sell this brand in the DC-area, but if they do, I'll look for Eryn -- and buy a six pack, even though I am dubious about how strawberry lime will taste...BTW, I've been meaning to ask -- what is the origin of Poo-Tee-Wheet? Is it posted somewhere earlier on your blog, a private joke or a cultural reference that flies over my head...?
Cool! Jones comes in 4-packs, and sells for about $4. Spendy trendy soda. And Strawberry Lime...well, if you like sugary soda, it's fine. The flavor isn't as atrocious as it sounds. A lot like the Pop Shoppe stuff from the early 80's, if you ever had that.Poo-tee-wheet is from Kurt Vonnegut's novel Slaughterhouse Five - it's a bird noise (say it quickly, and you'll hear it), and appears in the novel whenever there's just nothing left to say.
Ah, yes. I'm culturally illiterate. Especially sci-fi, fantasy and stuff you were assigned in high school English class...So, between yours and Scooter's blog, basically you two are all about nothing.... Gotcha.
I hadn't thought about it that way, but I suppose that's true! At the time I named the blog, my intention was more an exasperated "Jesus F'ing Christ, what next?!" So, poo-tee-wheet was a way of saying that sometimes, one can only stand and whistle because there are no words to convey the utter incomprehensibility of what is happening around her.
I'll just call you two the "Seinfelds" then...
YEAH! I finally found my very own pop bottles! They were at rainbow in my hood! Have you ever found your other two pics on a bottle?
Nope, never found them.
