  • There are not-so-far-fetched scenarios that will probably put Alabama in the playoff. I’m fine with whatever happens. I was castigated earlier this year for suggesting that Alabama was missing the X-factor this season, but I still don’t think it’s such a silly view.
  • You know how if you drink 2%, 1%, or skim milk long enough you become accustomed to it and you don’t miss whole milk anymore? The same thing has happened to me with natural peanut butter. Give it a shot sometime. In my experience, Smucker’s is the tastiest. To deal with the oil separation, set the jar on its side a few minutes before you want to use it. Then you can stick a knife all the way to the bottom and stir it up much more easily.
  • Life is too short for cheap playing cards. A decent plastic deck is about double the cost of a paper deck, but it will last ten times as long, and it’s so much more pleasant to use. (This is an excellent example of just a few more dollars actually increasing the quality of your life.)
  • Warren Zevon has begun popping up on one of my Pandora stations. I didn’t appreciate him while he was here. As I begin my exploration, I’m finding his music engaging, occasionally dark, and frequently hilarious. (Turns out “Werewolves of London,” the only song most of us can name, is an accurate capsule.) I think he must have been a fun guy to have dinner with.
  • Lea came home with some eggnog-flavored Little Debbie cakes this week. They got mixed reviews, but I’m OK with the concept. Eggnog kind of tiptoes into ancillary products a bit here and there, but it’s never going to be the ubiquitous menace that is pumpkin spice.
  • Two weeks to Star Wars.
  • We’re keeping the perfect temperatures through early next week, and then it will be wintertime. Enjoy these few days.
