Advertising – Got Milk? Nestlé’s Lawsuit Says Muscle Milk Doesn’t – NYTimes.com:

The brand claims to resemble mother’s milk because it contains “fast burning fats” called medium chain diglycerides, while also implying that it tastes as good as dairy, with flavors like “vanilla crème” and “cookies ’n crème.”

Not that I’m in the market for protein shakes, but the “milk” association of this product has always made me a little queasy. Interesting that it’s Nestles, without a “milk” named brand, that is filing the petition.

Unilever gets all the trans fat out of its margarines – USATODAY.com:

Food and Drug Administration rules let foods with less than 0.5 grams of trans fat per serving be labeled “0 grams of trans fat.” But consumer demand and pointed marketing by Smart Balance, Unilever’s closest rival in soft spreads, nudged Unilever to go lower. It will no longer mix in even tiny amounts, which added texture and shelf life. The new label, for the first time, will boast: No hydrogenated oils.

Competition results in better products, picking up on the FDA “fail.” Yay capitalism.

From the land of shameless self-promotion:

Fall league is revving up. Or leagues, I should say. There will be two: a regular T/Th league and a super-spiffy Friday night league. I need to get on the ball putting a few things together for both. I did minimal work on it yesterday because I really needed to get some writing done. I haven’t done much of anything *this* morning due to an alcohol-filled gaming session with Eric and Chris last night. I went to bed at around 4am and am a little teeny bit hungover today. I probably need more coffee. And pasta salad.


A new picture option… Something aside from MUDing to procrastinate the day away with. *EG*

Good weekend though busy.
There were flyers up at Atomic Comics saying they were going to do a weekend long D&D thing since the movie just came out. So Eric and I figured we’d go down and see what was going on, take a few gaming things just in case we’d get into a game. THERE WAS ONE OTHER GUY THERE WITH STUFF! So we talked to him for a bit. Then we decided to play, Eric DMing. It turns out there is this group of like five kids, like 10-12 year olds, who hang out at the comic shop all weekend. They are former Pokeman players, now playing Dragonballz, and now playing D&D! They sat in both Saturday and Sunday, but I have a feeling it would be better to start a campaign with them instead of trying to get them to play in what we were doing. They all want to make their own characters, and they’re so excited about it! Pretty cool. Well, in any case, we’re all getting together next Sunday to do it again. should be fun.

What to do today…
I need to get back to my excercise routine. But… But… It just seems I get either excercise done or writting done. If I had to decide, sometimes I wonder which I’d choose…

Okay, time to go clip some pictures… *grin*
