Everyone has these things they have to do everyday. Some people call them routines, some call them habits, some call them quirks, and some call them obsessive-compulsive actions, but everyone has them.
Here are the three things I have to do everyday:
1. Learn something new – It can be a new word, recipe, world capital, sexual position, or way to make a baby cry.
2. Give an offering to one of my celebrity shrines – I usually give ChapStick for my Angelina Jolie shrine, fresh herbs for my Rachael Ray shrine, an Emmy award for my Tina Fey shrine, and for my Winona Ryder shrine, a Saks Fifth Avenue gift card.
3. Drink enough water to make my pee clear – It shows that Iâ€™m well hydrated and when I pee, I donâ€™t have to flush the toilet, because it looks like I didnâ€™t do anything.
Some people say if your pee is clear, it shows that youâ€™re healthy, but for me it also prevents other people from pointing fingers at me when they see â€œI ♥ Ryan Seacrestâ€ written in yellow snow.
So how do you make your pee clear? You do it by drinking lots and lots of water.
They say everyone should drink eight glasses of water a day and I tried that, but drinking just plain old water got boring really quick. So I’ve been trying to mix it up with different types of water and itâ€™s been sometimes successful and other times, like with the Aquafina Sparkling Water, it was a total disaster, like the Titanic sinking or any recent Ben Affleck movie.
You would think from that experience I wouldâ€™ve learned my lesson with Aquafina water, but apparently Iâ€™m a sick masochistic son of a bitch, because I decided to try the zero calorie, zero carbs, and zero sugar Aquafina Wild Berry FlavorSplash.
Yeah, Aquafina! Give it to me, baby! Oh yeah, I like the way you punish my taste buds! Make me grimace, baby! Make me gag, Aquafina!
So whatâ€™s the difference between Aquafina FlavorSplash and Aquafina Sparkling?
Aquafina FlavorSplash contains no carbonation and is artificially sweetened with Splenda, while Aquafina Sparkling has carbonation and all-natural flavors, contains no sugars or artificial sweeteners, and tastes so bad that plants would find a way to spit it out.
I thought the FlavorSplash was going to rock my world…in a bad way. However, it turned out to be not bad. Itâ€™s got a very light berry taste and it also tastes like someone dumped a couple of packets of Equal into the bottle and mixed it up.
Itâ€™s slightly better than regular water, but waaaay better than Aquafina Sparkling. I guess Splenda is good for something else besides pretending to be cocaine.
I thought I found a decent plain water replacement, until I let the half-full bottle (or half-empty for you pessimistic folks) of Aquafina FlavorSplash sit outside of the refrigerator for a few hours. It turns out that itâ€™s like milk, the longer you leave it out of the refrigerator, the better the chances of you spitting it out.
Well as long as itâ€™s chilled I think FlavorSplash is not bad, but then again, I think former MTV VJ Kennedy is a babe.
