Aaaah, the Diamond Nut Fantasies men. Sultry. Seductive. Promises of future wonder. Come hither eyes. This is how an ordinary life can be transformed into the average cook's fantasy after baking with Diamond Nuts. Better than Burt Reynolds on that fur. Purrrr.

I'll preface this with: I love Halloween. Always have. Pumpkins, changing leaves, fall decorations & plastic spiders, dry ice smoke, candy and trick-or-treating and dressing like a pirate/vampire/slut

Samsung shows off its phone-watch, the Dick Tracy, Star Trekky, High-Tech-y awesome that is right next to "Jetpack" and "KITT the talking car" on the list of amazing things we've lusted for since 1950s science fiction.
So, while that is awesome, it's just a replacement for a bluetooth headseat, so that you look more badass and less like a 90s relic, and not a replacement for the phone itself. Aw boo. Advertising it with the technicolor dreams we've seen on TV since childhood only reinforces "follower" rather than leader.

When it comes to liqueurs, Italians make more than Campari. They also make stuff like amaretto. And then there is Disaronno.

Sometimes life is weird. Take 72 year old Ken Delmar. He was an aspiring artist, busy applying brush to canvas. But whenever he'd clean up his brushes he'd notice the colors looked better on the old Quicker Picker Upper, Bounty.
Ken started painting on Bounty paper towels instead. One thing led to another. And then luck and happenstance and a big corporation blessed him with the opportunity to make his dreams come true, thanks to Bounty.
