The Macaroni and Cheese button is REAL!

After years of chasing packages that were “lost” by the post office and/or the maintenance office at the Dee-luxe Apartment in the sky, it is a joy and a pleasure to order from the internet and have the boxes on my doorstep when they are supposed to be. Therefore, one of the first things we did as a homeowner was join Amazon Prime.

And it is niiiiice. It’s especially nice for keeping on top of dog food. Running low on the wet food we mix with the dry food to keep Max interested in eating? Order it and it’s here in two days. That said, Amazon has come up with an idea that I thing pushes things a little far. They’ve come up with Dash Buttons – wee wireless devices that you can stick around your house and when you push the button it connects to your wireless network and orders items for you.

What does this mean?

I can now order Macaroni and Cheese with the push of a button.

Don’t get me wrong – I am as lazy as any other person, but when I see I need more of (item) I am literally only steps away from any of my devices that could do the same thing. And I think a button for something as basic and crappy for you as Kraft Macaroni and Cheese is not good for us AT ALL.

Besides, I only eat classy sides like Velveeta Shells and Cheese.

However, I do think they are missing the boat on a feminine products dash button. I’d slap that widget right in the bathroom and make the rest of the time until glorious menopause arrives easy-peasy. (It can be sponsored by Discovery’s Shark Week. You’re welcome, Amazon.)

Or a Nyquil button to avoid that panic you feel after you’ve slugged down the last mouthful and are now too inebriated to go get more.

Totally F'real!

Speaking of reasons why I’m NOT at my fighting weight…

The convience store of choice here in the Mid-Atlantic area is Wawa. If God himself decided to create a convenience store, it’d be Wawa. Great hoagies, great deli, fantastic coffee I’m told, soft drinks galore and tons of goodies to eat. Wawas are ubiquitous here — I pass 3 every morning on my way to work.

And within the last few months they’ve started with self-serve milkshakes. F’real Milkshakes! You grab your choice of flavour (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, or coffee) from the freezer and pop it in the blender’s cupholder. Next, you press a button for your desired thickness. Much like the Assumption, the cup with the frozen goop inside is pulled up into the blender. Then? Magic. Or, rather, blending. The cup descends back into your field of view, and instead of a frozen block of chocolate, you receive a perfectly blended milkshake.

Truly a dangerous thing. Pardon me while I break into song..

So this is love, Mmmmmm
So this is love
So this is what makes life divine
I’m all aglow, Mmmmmm
And now I know
The key to all heaven is mine
My heart has wings, Mmmmmm
And I can fly
I’ll touch ev’ry star in the sky
So this is the miracle that I’ve been dreaming of
So this is love
