Come On In, The Water's Fine!

Just got back from the grocery store. Somewhat surprisingly, they still had bottled water, although there wasn't much of a selection. If "selection" even means anything when you're talking about water. Which I don't really believe it does, except for the fact that I had to buy little bottles instead of gallon jugs.

...and, huh. Even as I was typing that, it suddenly came to my attention that while I was out shopping, I got an e-mail informing me that the city water had been declared OK and they were lifting the boil order. Well, that's $3.25 I'm out, then. Guess I'll put the bottled stuff away for the next apocalypse.

On an entirely different note, while I was at the store I noticed a display of Butterfinger candy bars, whose big promotional thing right now seems to be that you can win a trip to Comic-Con. Which leaves me wondering... Exactly when did nerdiness become completely mainstream?


  1. Exactly when did nerdiness become completely mainstream?
    Beats me. I'm so nerdy that I didn't notice. (It's kind of like my conservative friend thinking that everyone who's middle-of-the-road like me is liberal.)

  2. Probably around the time nerdom became profitable.
