Calories Per Dollar Research

I went to the store to get some milk this morning and decided to do some research. I had Dan who thought Crisco might be the winner and Greg who went with Corn Syrup. While both were great guesses they were not the winners. There might be differences from store to store because there were some sales going on. I think that the corn syrup didn't pan out because you only need to use a small amount of it to sweeten things. So it is very cheap but not as high as the others. Here are the results:

7. Corn Syrup 1045.22 Calories per dollar
6. Chocolate Chips 1472.00 Calories per dollar
5. Ramen Noodles 2000.00 Calories per dollar
4. Pancake Syrup 2135.59 Calories per dollar
3. Crisco 2917.05 Calories per dollar
2. Vegetable Oil 3237.09 Calories per dollar
1. Sugar 4068.86 Calories per dollar

So I didn't check everything, but I think this is a good study for our purposes. I will send anyone 7 dollars who will make me a delicious meal out of these 7 items.

I'm sweaty because I just got back from a good old fashioned dog walk. Casey is back to working some weekends now that her store is opened so I'll have to amuse myself today. No ideas coming to mind.

Bye

Bildins

Tell me this isn't cool:

I told all of you that I wanted to see some prefabricated rotating buildings as soon as possible. It looks like only people in Dubai listen to me.

Ashley subscribes to the diet of most calories per dollar. I have been trying to find the perfect food for this diet. I'm still researching, but I'm hoping to find something amazing. Feel free to leave a comment with your entries.

I love you.

Happenings

I decided yesterday that I am going to make a conscious effort to be a positive and social person. Being negative and angry doesn't really help anything. Plus I don't really have anything to really be unhappy about if you think about it. So, happy sunbeams to everyone. I love you and your mothers and especially your sisters.

I need to play basketball more. I used to play, or at least shoot baskets, like everyday. Now I can't even remember the last time I played. It is where I go to think you know. I am trying to think of an Internet business/website to start. There are a lot of dumb people who are making easy Internet money, and I want to be one of those dumb people. I think that I just need to make some site that people would go to everyday and I would just make money from advertisers. It sounds easy, but I can't think of what the topic of the site should be. I'll take any suggestions. I could have people throw a different item at my crotch everyday and take a picture.

Is seems that all the news I ever have is about Casey. She is always trying to upstage me. Last week she got officially drafted to a roller derby team. She is on the M80's. She is very excited. She has her first official bout on July 5th. Be there or be square. Actually since I'll be there it is more like be there and be square.

I'm trying to grow a beard again. It's going better than ever, but starting to get itchy so we'll see how long it lasts.

So the whole reason I started this site was to find out about Mike Bush's hot dog zone. So far I have not gotten any further with my search. I still probably should just email Mike Bush at channel 5. The cool thing is that now when you Google: mike bush hot dog zone this page is the number one entry. It feels good to be #1.

Is it June

Well I have been neglectful to my blog yet again. For that I am sorry.


Hmmm, what has happened in the last 2 weeks?


Negatives: Peanut ate approximately 1 million june bugs. Then she threw up on the couch. The barf was approximately 95% june bug pieces. Then I guess the rest that stayed inside her made her stomach upset (who would have guessed that?). So she started pooping in the house and throwing up for like 4 days. Then we took her to the vet and they fixed her up with a shot and some antibiotics. It cost 100 bucks but it did the trick so it was well worth it. (positive within a negative: the vet at the webster animal hospital was totally cute. I suggest you go punch a dog and bring it to the webster animal hospital if you're single.)


My mom got Wii Fit. It is a lot more fun than I expected, but I was sad to see that my Wii Fit age was something like 42. I think it is because I have bad balance.


Our satellite TV stopped working. This is sort of negative and sort of positive. I love to watch TV but I have to be very careful that it doesn't take over me. I got a lot of work done around the house while it was out. I also watched about 3 seasons of Family Guy. It's coming back today so I have to be prepared.


It is getting hot. This is the time of year when I can't even move slightly or I will start sweating and not stop for the rest of the day. This is even when I am in air conditioning.


Thanks to our ever accumulating credit card debt I am putting us on a budget. It won't be fun but it is necessary.


Positives: Greg came to visit and that was good although he had a lot of math stuff to do at his conference.


I went to see Casey in the Rookie Rumble where the pink vixens were triumphant. She did very well in her first bout.


I have seen some good music in the last few weeks. I saw Cardiac Arrest and The Humanoids at the Halo Bar and that was a lot of fun. Then I saw Mates of State at the Bluebird and they were great as usual. (negative within a positive: It was 45 thousand degrees inside for that show).



I know it looks like the negatives outweigh the positives, but that is really not the case. Everything is peachy. I just thank Zeus and Poseidon every day that I don't have the luck that Hot Rod and Jessica have. In the last 2 weeks his car was broken into and they stole the radio, but worse than that they broke the shifter off so there is like 3 centimeters of shifter to try and grab to put into gear. Jessica's car has also broke down 2 or 3 times since then. To add the icing to the cake, they moved into a new house and right after they moved all their stuff in the ceiling in the living room collapsed and flooded the place. The a/c doesn't work either. Luckily things have been turning for the better the last day or so, but I still think they should get a voodoo priestess to change their luck.


I hope this makes you as happy as it makes me:
