The Unfortunate Fox Review

  Better Half and I went on an Antoine de Saint-Exupéry kick months ago. We watched  The Little Prince movie. I ordered the book and a stuffed fox on Amazon. This was in April. April. The fox arrived today (July). It looks nothing like the images on the seller's page.     One of these things is not like the other, yeah? Amazon seems to deem my reviews too caustic. The one I sent in today probably will not be published. I'll post it here for posterity.   NOT WHAT WAS ADVERTISED   This item from the Yueyang County Shengu Department Store (岳阳县申固百货店) is NOT what is advertised: 1. It is not "super soft and it feels like you are hugging a cloud". Yes, the material is soft. The filling feels cheap and it not uniformly packed or fluffy. 2. This can not be used as nap pillow. As a home decoration, it could be easily mistaken for roadkill. 3. It is not a "Perfect Decoration, They suit for bedroom, living room, home, office, nursery bed,car and every place you like".

Simple Truth Cranberry Juice

  THIS IS NOT AN AMAZON REVIEW It's extremely rare to find a Simple Truth product that I don't like. Then I discovered their 100% cranberry (pasteurized | no sugar added!) juice. Saying it's tart is akin to... nothing. It's that damn bitter. I don't know of any good use for it, unless I bring it to the police so they can lob it at looters. Now that would be beyond brutality. Hey, if nothing else, the CIA can use it to interrogate terrorists. So what is Simple Truth cranberry juice?  According to Kroger's website, it's a beverage free from 101+ artificial preservatives and ingredients, kosher, pasteurized, and contains 70 calories per 8 oz fl.  The ingredients are simple, too. Filtered water, cranberry juice, cranberry juice concentrate.  I'm wondering if there's a fourth ingredient. If Death shat its pants and squeezed the slurry into a container, it would taste like the contents of this bottle. (Remember to refrigerate after opening.) Simple T
