Free Stuff

Yogurt Flavors: Chocolate Decadence, World Class Vanilla, Mocha, Maple Nut, Marshmallow (changing to Strawberry Shortcake by 4 PM today) and White Chocolate Raspberry.

Tonight, our yogurt is buy one, get one free (limit one, no XL) from 6 PM to 8 PM.

Bonus: If you live in the RISD area, you can pick up the Saturday edition of the Dallas Morning News and get a coupon for a free small yogurt in the Neighbors section of the paper.

Everyday when I open up the USA Today or Turn on the news channels, it seems that the race for the White House is already in full swing. At least, that's how it appears when the coverage is not focused on Paris Hilton. The coverage seems to come earlier and earlier every time an election comes around. Thankfully, the entertainment value of the elections is also increasing.

This year there are two new political games that are free to download. The first is Presidential Pong. This is "a game of Pong using caricatures of prominent 2008 presidential candidates as paddles. Each candidate possesses a power-up move based on some factoid that is explained in varying degrees of coherency."

There is another game coming out next week called The Redistricting Game where you take part in the practice of gerrymandering of congressional districts to affect the outcome of elections. I'm looking forward to this one. It should cause quite a stir on Capital Hill. (Thanks to GameSpot.com for the news.)

Maybe these games aren't for everyone; however, I can promise you a review in the future because these are right up my ally. I love politics and enjoy playing games. The Pong game is a bit of a novelty and looks humorous. The Redistricting Game is interesting to me. It will be fun to get in on one of the shadier practices in government.

Saturday Distraction: What Kind of Wine Are You?

You Are Chardonnay

Fresh, spirited, and classic - you have many facets to your personality.
You can be sweet and light. Or deep and complex.
You have a little bit of something to offer everyone... no wonder you're so popular.
Approachable and never smug, you are easy to get to know (and love!).

Deep down you are: Dependable and modest

Your partying style: Understated and polite

Your company is enjoyed best with: Cold or wild meat
I do like my Chardonnay.

The link to the quiz is slightly jacked.

***You Are Sauvignon Blanc***


Engaging and energetic, you have a lot to offer the world - most of it they've never seen anywhere else!
You are the type of person who carves your own path in life... and you invite everyone else to come along.
The only thing predictable about you is that you could have anything up your sleeve.
You're all about sampling all of life's experiences. Both the savory and unsavory ones.

Deep down you are: Laid back and young at heart

Your partying style: Anything goes... seriously!

Your company is enjoyed best with: Smoked meats or spicy food
