When I was a little girl Zesta Saltines came in a rectangular brick, wax-wrapped in stacks of little duets of saltines that could be snapped in half to get two square individual crackers, and they were the best-tasting saltines in my small universe. I did not like Premium Saltines nearly so much. I could eat a whole brick of them, if given the chance (and I have a feeling it was part of the reason my father called me "Crackers"). Many years go by and Zesta no longer uses the same packaging or the same recipe, and their saltines are as tasteless and cardboard as Premium. For years I've been roaming around the cracker aisle seeking the taste I remembered; the closest I'd come was the Original flavor of Goldfish crackers, but today on a whim I picked up a box of Gamesa Saladitas in the Mexican food aisle, and JOY! Proper saltine crackers in bricks! And they taste right, too! Light and flaky and salty, just like saltines should taste!
I have "that" cold again -- the one where I have fatigue and weakness but no cough or sniffles or anything. Blah. I kept thinking about going home today but didn't; if I'm still this draggy tomorrow I may call in, though. It made work sort of difficult to focus on.
Watched some more Deep Space Nine this weekend -- by Season Four, this series totally rocked. Although, as much as I overall enjoyed the episode Little Green Men, I have to ask... if the Universal Translator works so that you can understand everyone, then how is it anyone can listen to ANYTHING in "the original Klingon"? Wouldn't the Universal Translator just... translate it?
Also started showing Farscape to framefolly; it's been a while since we watched the very early episodes, and I am already falling in love with Zaahn again.
And in the re-watching marathon for the weekend, I indulged myself with The Five Doctors again, since the first time I watched it I didn't know the Doctor(s) as well as I do now. I do wish things had worked out to get the Brig in with either Nine or Ten. That would have been SO wonderful; he's known nearly every Doctor since Two!
