Chipping Away at Time on the Strange Planet I Will Never Understand?

My leftover wasabi & mayo St.Patrick's Day potato chips
My calendar is still green the day after St. Patrick's Day?
I bought a packet of wasabi & mayo chips from Aldi earlier this week to have with a few cans of  Guinness on St.Patrick's Day, because wasabi/green/Ireland?
Yeah, sounds like an Irish joke I know, but when I bought my Chinese calendar this year I was hungry and did some grocery shopping in an Asian supermarket and bought some wasabi flavoured potato chips on my way home.
At the End of My 2020 Calendars ... What Now?
I passed on the star fish soup, maybe next time?-)
Well, we did just come out of lock-down
I also bought some crab flavoured chips ... yuck!
Wow, look how many are left when the air's gone:-( 
Most wasabi flavoring in commerce is, however, ersatz, based on horseradish and food coloring.
Big mistake on my part, because now I love wasabi flavoured potato chips.
And even though I try to avoid dairy products in my diet, most brands of wasabi flavoured potato chips have traces of cow's milk in them.
Some interesting names, numbers and ingredients there
I'm not a Vegan, so I don't really care too much about the ethics of consuming animal products, because animals eat other animals anyway.
Take it up with your loving "God", not me, as I only live here ... for now:-)
The use-by date for those Lays wasabi chips was 14/2/21, which is Valentine's Day funnily enough:-)
Last chance for hot Lays?-)
More green, just like my eye colour;-)
Brisbane Lions Hand "The Pies" Their First Defeat of the Season on Pi Day?-)
And the wasabi chips I bought for St.Patrick's Day were 69% potato, which reminded me of Valentine's Day again for some reason;-) 
Happy St.Patrick's Day 2021?
I guess we all like a good myth to look forward to celebrating throughout the year.
When I was leaving the Asian grocery store back in January I put a $2 coin into a gumball machine and asked the universe to give me an animal that would sum up the year ahead as an archetype of news events.
I got the tiger:-(
When I got that tiger and started seeing all of the tiger stories in the news I said to the universe, so you're just telling me that 2021 is going to be just a repeat of last year, more or less?-)
At least Trump is out of office this year.


  1. The signs are there Dazzle. Richmond 3-Peat.

    Good to see Lays care about our health and reduced the amount chips and increased the amount of air in the packet. πŸ˜„

    1. Luckily I only eat Lays chips once in a blue moon, since Sunnybank is a bit out of my way these days.
      I mainly go there to buy my Chinese calendars at the end of the year.

    2. I have no idea why those words spaced out like that in the above comment.
      I wasn't trying to create some poetic word play or anything like that.

  2. I might try sticking all of my pins and needles into that cute little tiger and see how Richmond travel throughout 2021;-)
    But I'd have to steal it back from my niece's little girl first.
    Do you really think I would keep a crappy little tiger toy around my home, even though I do have crappy little Lions and Sharks toys around the place Spartan?-)

    1. πŸ˜‚ hilarious...don’t voodoo my Tiger Dazzle, just one more premiership please. By the way, Dusty was pretty good on Thursday night.
