    I wasn't suggesting that starting with soy sauce and spicing it yourself wouldn't get you a similar (or maybe even better) result. It's just easy to get good results with "unscrew cap and pour" so I've adopted that plan.

    Gonna have to keep my eyes peeled for that Dragon sauce. If you like really wicked hot sauce, may I suggest Acid Rain? If I wasn't on my phone right now I'd include a photo.

    Dragon sauce isn't wicked hot. It's just got a really good flavor mixture. In recipes that call for soy sauce using Dragon sauce instead always seems to give a good result, sometimes even if I am missing a couple spices. And for lazy family meals where no recipe is involved, like "beefy rice" (the far from glamorous staple dinner made with browned ground beef, some sort of vegetable, and rice-a-roni) or "chicken pasta" (another far from glamorous staple involving precooked chicken breast strips, some sort of vegetable, and pasta cooked in chicken broth) splattering some Dragon sauce around gives it some extra flavor.

    I’ve come to the realization that I go on an ego trip just to cover my own insecurities of being inadequate and wanting to be liked.

    And yes it’s a rant from my perspective.

    I bought what I thought were yoghurt covered craisins at the grocery store (one of my favorite snack foods) but instead picked up yoghurt covered raisins. I didn't think it would be a problem when I noticed it, but apparently there is a huge difference. The raisins are almost moist when I eat them and the covering has a strange sort of chemical taste.

    Yoghurt-covered? Is it some type of solidified yoghurt?

    Now actually play the game. It's only a waste if it goes unused.

    Does she often complain about your gaming purchases, or was this just one time when she noticed you'd bought something?

    What's wrong with yogurt-covered raisins? They're tasty.

    Yes, she complains even though I only buy games two or three times a year. And I have been playing it a bunch. Audiosurf is fun (at least when my meds are on).
