Color Me a Label....But Make it Cheap.

Easily amused

I love scratching off things that are like lottery tickets, for the "What could it be?!" entertainment value and the relative pointlessness of the answer. But I don't care about winning anything, and I have principled objections to paying the Bad At Statistics Tax. What are good options for getting scratch-off things that are not lottery tickets (or I guess are lottery tickets but not ones I had to pay for)? What are other similarly pointless small entertainments of this sort? I already get a big kick out of unwrapping empty boxes.

Another Undecided Consumer

I took a look at the Droid and am very tempted. Have a Blackberry Curve which is fine, but I'm due to upgrade anyway. My contract with AT&T (blech) runs out in October, cancellation fee isn't much. Droid should save me $50/month I'm currently spending to keep my Curve synced with my work Outlook. What think you, hive mind? I know there are a lot of MeFi Droid owners. I trust you way more than Amazon reviewers.

OCD memory of 7-UP commercial!

There is a commercial from the late 1980's that I really want to watch. I can't find it anywhere so far. It is a 7-UP commercial and in the commercial it's really hot, then people open up 7-UP and it starts raining and it all looks so merry and refreshing and there is a song in it...the only part I remember is when they would sing, "Gotta take a break, I wanna play in the rain and take a break". This has haunted me for years and I would LOVE to see this commercial again.
