Remember when you thought a Twix was enough and now you fondly wish for that Lindt stuff? Once you step up to the below Honduras stuff, you'll never feel nostalgic for fruity chocolate again. You're welcome.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Canadian Prime minister Trudeau corrects someone using the word "mankind" to the less offensive "peoplekind"....and faces backlash for 'mansplaining'.

Highly agreed! Mucked up two days ago, trying something new based on a cup-recipe.

As you don't seem to plan on sobering up anytime soon, you might want to write your preferred gin-brand on a paper and stick it on your shirt for the bartenders to see

The new Migros milk bottles have such thin plastic that I crush them just trying to unscrew the cap off!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I need milk for a far breton recipe I want to try out but just can't be bothered to get out of my apartment.
And I'm trying to refrain from leaving my apartment just to beat my previous record of not leaving the apartment for two weeks (being a 引き籠り姫;Japanese for hermit); I'm aiming for three weeks!
