Targeted

Dan and I ventured out yesterday for breakfast, and wandered around looking for houses, again. It's getting really old but we hope to be settled in time to put an election sign in our very own yard.

We also stopped by Target because that's what you do when you get a paycheck in these parts. Everybody was out clogging the shopping centers. Maybe it's the thrill of March and the end of glum winter.

I tried to buy some jeans, but you cannot be fat AND tall at Target. You must be one or the other, or shop online.

I did however, get a fountain drink. It was called Tava, a Pepsi product that touts itself as a zero calorie sparkling beverage. I had the Mediterranean Fiesta variety.

Website description: Black cherry hosts a festival of flavor, while the tang of tangerine and lime are the life of a spirited shindig. Tava Mediterranean Fiesta is a unique sparkling blend that leaves you with surprised taste buds and a thirst for the unknown.

Someone needs to fire their copywriter.

It tasted like diet cherry sparkling water with a splash of Mr. Pibb.

How boring, all of this.

Bring on spring.

I am in the same rut you are it seems. I go to Target too when the pay check rolls in. And Dammit. You are either short and fat or tall and skinny.
What about those of us that like to gorge on donuts and beef barbecues? God forbid they make a size 40 with a length of at least 34.
Dammit. I guess I am relegated to continue wearing the same pair of jeans and the same pair of khakis till I venture to another store and find the ever elusive holy grail of bottoms.
As for your horrible Mediterranean Fiesta. Ugh.
You would think that Pepsi would have thrown in the towel by now. Coke just roolz. Have you tried Coke Black? OMG. A laxative, a caffeine boost and a tasty coffee beverage all in one.
Don't Fret. If I ran Maxim mag your blog would be the tops.
Cheers.

Hrm. When I think Mediterranean, I think olive oil, goat's cheese, and roasted garlic. Not exactly something I'd want carbonated and cold.

I recall you've got an eye for company logos and branding changes.
While surfing, I noticed that the B3ta kids (mostly UK) are doing an image challenge on company logos; might be somewhat amusing.
