How about ice cream with extra ice cream? Would that work?

Or just leave the cheese out on the patio.

With temps expected in the 30s (add five degrees for our dark heat-absorbing granite patio stones), it will be nicely melted in short order.


I made the mistake of putting a cheese plate out yesterday...

For me, yes!

I am not fussy and clearly have less of an addiction to Swiss cheese.

Too hot to drive my convertible!
If I have to drive with the roof closed then I might as well drive the other one which has better a/c.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Why is the refill always having double the fluid as the original shampoo?
Why does it always overflow before I'm done filling it up?

To be perfectly accurate it doesn't start overflowing until after you're done filling it up.

You've gotta tap those bubbles down... as with a lot of things in life, it's all about getting the angle right. HTH.

Ha, I bet you didn't think where that short reply of your's would lead to.

.... slushy, what's a slushy ..... checking youtube, aha, hmmm, nice idea ..... what on earth is a thermomix? (the site for the Swiss is all about small and practical, the site in English is all about healthy, healthy ... figures ) .... oh gee, blimey, who needs that?! Okay, in a one room flat, might be handy ..... Stiftung Warentest measured more than 90 decibel at it's grinding mode (that's louder than a jackhammer) .... hmmm, considering the neighbour lives very close in a one-room-apartement ...

.... never mind. Slushi, huh? Yeah, will have that tomorrow.

Dezibel what? Without a reference level, weighting factor, and measuring distance this value is mostly meaningless.
