    The only way to win, is not to play at all.

    If you don't play at all you can't win henkie. Also it makes for dull times.

    If you argue with yourself, it means that you want to do, or did, something that you really should not have done or are going to do.

    I don't remember the name of the movie, and, after looking up the relevant quote, I seem to have been adlibbing it a bit. But it's still sound advice ;)

    Nah.

    I argue with myself because there's what I want to be true, and then there's the truth.

    These days, I know the game was lost multiple decades ago, though. The cost to get rid of the irrational anger was several chunks of brain, which means I'm now very understandably angry about that.

    I don't remember any details about the product name; and their stock changes so regularly I have no idea if they still have it; but a few years ago Sam's Club was sampling some almond milk cheese. It was actually pretty good, but cost twice as much as the other cheeses for a smaller package.
    I no longer have that awful part-time job at Sam's, and have let my membership lapse when I got a temp-to-hire job at the start of last year (that didn't work out thanks to COVID, I was let go in March, though they brought me back for a week in July as a temp to help shut things down). There are three Costcos closer than the nearest Sam's Club which are 10 miles away.

    Is that a ghost I see?

    Good to know that there is something out there that represents vegan cheese that doesn't taste like cardboard anus.

    Yeah, sorry I can't give you any more details. I searched for "cheese" on www.samsclub.com but did not find anything like what I described.
    It could have been a seasonal product (and a lot of them are not obviously seasonal, but they still only have them at certain times of the year) or it could be that nobody was buying it and they stopped carrying it. It may no longer be made.
    I haven't been inside Sam's since December of 2019. Right before New Years and my membership expired in April and I choose not to renew.

    I was just musing that yesterday was the Superbowl and I didn't even realize it until I saw the newspaper. I didn't know who was playing other than "not the Chicago Bears".
    Sometimes I feel like I'm the only guy in America who isn't into sports.
    Even guys who are normally not into football seem obsessed with the Superbowl. As far as I'm concerned, if it isn't the Bears I could care less.
    Even when it is the Bears (only happened twice, once in first grade, once a few years back) I've only got about as much enthusiasm as the average football fan has for an ordinary game.

    Am I the only one who has the attitude of "If it isn't a team from my city/area, I'm not interested"?

    As I get older, I find that my enthusiasm for watching most any sport has been waning. I did watch the superbowl, but that was mainly because there really wasn't anything else to do. It was a bad game with teams I did not care about (not that I actually care about any NFL team any more because the "sport" is just a brutal modern version of Roman gladiators with a little less death).

    I find that I can watch the occasional basketball game. For example, even though I am a Lakers fan, I watched only about 10 minutes of all of last season's playoffs, and the Lakers actually won the championship. Meh.

    I do still watch grand slam tennis. That's about it.

    I'm not interested regardless of whether a team is from my city.

    I prefer doing sports than watching sports. And if to watch sports, make it cycling or cross-country skying. Football is far enough down the list of priorities that I couldn't tell you who was the world champion last time that was a thing.
