Wish This Was Still Around

Hmm I thought I had blogged about this a few years back, guess I didn't. Anyway in the late 1990s maybe early 2000s Dr. Pepper came out with some wacky new flavors, Cherry Vanilla, Berrys & Cream, plus something called Red Fusion. It was colored red and had a sharp cherry flavor like a Cherry Smash. It was good. I wish they still made it, but I don't think they do.

I forget how widespread it was distributed. I know it was distributed in the 20oz. plastic bottles and probably cans. I noticed online it was in cans and also 2liter bottles in addition to the 20oz bottle.

I recall one time when I purchased a bottle or two of the Red Fusion, I got a bum plastic cap that would not come off in the normal way. I think I eventually had to cut the seal carefully with an exacto knife to separate the cap from the sealing ring. I eventually got the thing opened. This happened to me a couple of times and over the years it still happens on occasion usually on Dr. Pepper products. The second time it happened to me on a Red Fusion I wrote (or did I email?) a message to the Dr. Pepper folks about the problem and in return they sent me two coupons for one Free 20oz. bottle of Red Fusion that I never got around to using. Now the coupons are a pretty neat nostalgic collectible for me.

As you can see the coupons expired at the end of 2003. Got to remember to bring them along the next time I go time-traveling to that past.

Whats In a Name?

A few months back I was at one of those food places where when you place your order they ask for your name, instead of giving you an order number. I guess to make things seem more personal. Anyway once again the cashier misspelled my name. This time it was "CURK". I think I have seen it before not 100% sure though. I thought I would add it to these misspelling rant posts I do every once in a while. This time it didn't drive me batty. Sometimes they do. I guess I'm mellowing with age since a big birthday is coming up soon.

Update: Got another "xURK" this time it was "KURK" closer but no cigar.

Myka Monday: Kiss And Makeup


Yes it has been a few months since we've had one of these things. Well after making out up, Myka and I now have an unofficial understanding about this whole Myka Monday Mess I got us into.

Myka Mondays will not be as regular as they once were. They will be more random and only just every once in a while. A sort of Myka with benefits. If I ever get back around to my reviewing of episodes again they might also appear on a Monday before a "Warehouse 13 Wednesday". That is a very big IF. Myka is pretty cool with this, unless I crack a Pete type joke/pun, then she is So outta here.
