Recreating childhood flavors in strange ways

Okay, I’ll admit it: When I was a kid I would occasionally try a sip of my dad’s beer. (Usually, it was Budweiser) I didn’t like the way it tasted then, and I don’t like the way it tastes now.

Just a few minutes ago, I took a sip of a Monster Energy Drink while sucking on a Wintermynt Blast breath mint.

Those two items together sent a taste-sense memory rushing through my brain: I was 12, and was making a disgusted face after just having tasted my dad’s beer.

blech – I won’t be doing that again.

I’m sure everyone posts something like this at some point…

Akismet seems to be working very well for me, only 3 4 spam comments have gotten past it since I migrated to WP (in mid January,) all of which ended up in my moderation queue – so they never made it to the blog. The two most recent were this morning.

I’m not sure why they came through tho, since the only appearant difference between them and a bunch of the recent messages Akismet caught is the link they were trying to promote. All the others were porn-related – these was about jeeps. (I think… I didn’t actually click the links to find out.)

I don’t get that much traffic, but these stats are still interesting to me:

Caught Spam

Akismet has caught 1,917 spam for you since you first installed it.

You have no spam currently in the queue. Must be your lucky day. 🙂

Either that, or I just deleted everything Akismet has identified as spam.
