I always thought that fruit flavored yogurt cups tasted too sweet. Now I read, (source), that that little plastic cup of yogurt with fruit at the bottom, has 6 teaspoons of sugar added!
32oz yogurt, $3.29. 5lbs Trader Joe's blueberries, $5.29
Recently, thanks to the economy, I have discovered a better tasting, cheaper, and healthier way to eat yogurt and blueberries. If you guessed that I bought plain, Nancy's lo-fat yogurt in the 32oz container, and fresh blueberries, you would be right. When I have a taste for yogurt, I spoon some into a bowl, add blueberries and enjoy a treat without adding 6 teaspoons of sugar.
The Yahoo word for the day is "Procrastinate". I will look at the definition later.

A new study finds obese people have 8 percent less brain tissue than normal-weight individuals. Their brains look 16 years older than the brains of lean individuals, researchers said today.

I am so glad that Raley's has Red Box movie rentals. Yesterday I rented Watchmen for $1.
The movie is dark. I don't mean the story, I mean the movie had me squinting at my widescreen HDTV to try and see what was going on with all the dark colored shadow people and places. After a while the movie filmed in the dark, (you would think they could afford lights), became a distraction to the practically non-existent plot. The plot was like the TV shows that I don't watch, so I guess it's unfair that I am reviewing this lackluster, $150,000,000 adaptation of a comic book I am not likely to read. It's just that, in addition to not spending any money on lights, they tried to make it a love, doomsday, and unfulfilled relationship story!
I had better return the thing before I get charged another dollar for an additional day. Ha, ha, ha. I really like Red Box movie rentals.
I pre-ordered mine last night.
