  • Banana flavored popsicles are delicious

    If you know me well, you might know that I love banana flavored anything, and I especially love Budget $aver Banana Popsicles. This company is great; they make one product, popsicles. They have a nice history writeup of their company on their webpage and little sob story on the back of every package:

    You are very important to our small company. We are trying to make the best tasting banana water ice pops that we possibly can. We are also trying to keep our price as low as possible.

    If you have an idea, or don’t feel you have received your money’s worth, please call TOLL FREE weekdays 9-4 eastern time at 1-800-322-3642 or visit our website at and let us know.

    Thank you for trying Budget $averĀ®.

    I’ve never felt like a company was talking to me before when I’ve looked at the back of their package, so I thought I’d pass it on. Their banana flavored popsicles are delicious, and extremely inexpensive. I paid $1.50 plus tax for 18 packs of the “water ice pops”, each containing two “pops”. 4 cents per “pop” is a steal, and you can get them at Wal-Mart and Brookshire’s, at least around here.

  • Working on the weekend sucks

    I’ve known for a while that I was going to have to come in on the weekend. It was supposed to be last week, but it got pushed back. We had to deploy a new version of our practice management software, and the vendor doesn’t have the ability to push it out as an msi. We (two coworkers and I; the other coworker skipped out) had to go touch each machine., and that’s a huge, tedious time killer. No overtime, no comp time; I’m salaried.

    I automated the large majority of it, so all we had to do was make sure it got to each machine. I still don’t like going to work for 4 hours on a Saturday. I’m getting to be quite the VBScript master, automating a large amount of tasks via active directory.

    I need to go finish season 2 of LOST, the best show ever. I think that was my first personal blog post ever. Wish me luck. Working on the weekend sucks.
