I came across this gem at a gas station last week. I thought it was some kind of special can celebration at first, but realized if that would have been the case, it would have been that classic bland white can I remembered as a child during the 80s.

Pepsi-Cola Throwback actually refers to the recipe. The original version before the times of High Fructose Corn Syrup. This one is made with sugar, like it was meant to be.

Pepsi has had some complete debacles over the past decade. Pepsi Twist which was nothing short of Pepsi with a touch of Raid roach killer, and then the abominable Pepsi Blue, but this one is a winner. Its more refreshing than today's Pepsi, and makes me hope that it will stick around permanently.

In fact Pepsi should replace its original with Throwback... which is actually the real original. Corn Syrup replaced sugar because at one point in time, it was cheaper... that isn't the case anymore. so whats the hold up?

Forget Corn Syrup, Aspartame, Sorbitol, and Splenda. Sugar is how it was meant to be. Its natural, and better for you than all of that lab created BS. If you don't want to be fat, then just work out. Soda isn't water, its a leasure beverage. I think people have forgotten that in today's culture.

Ah, I'll look for it in the 12 packs then. I've been preferring coke over pepsi for years now. Maybe this throwback flavor will make me switch. The only downside of coke to me is how flipping carbonated it is compared to pepsi.

      Finished Gundam SEED tonight. As cliche as it could get, I still really enjoyed it. Mecha designs were above average.... and despite a lot of recycled animation during battles, I still found them engaging and entertaining... and all the love interests swapping around tickled my fancy. Character deaths were pretty brutal as well. Its def worth watching for the average fan. Better than Unicorn, but not IBO as far as recently watched Gundam series.

      I have to get a dead tree cut down on my property. Its going to cost me $500. x_x But that doesn't include the removal. To save money I'll borrow a chainsaw from one of my friends and cut up the pieces myself. The tree is tall enough that when it eventually falls, it could hit my house, the garage, the deck, the pool (when its up for the summer) or my propane tanks so its got to come down.

      Its been a month since my root canal. I had another appointment yesterday for the rest of the work. They removed the temporary filling, xrayed it to make sure its all good, then did the permanent filling, then shaved/shaped the tooth for the crown, then imprinted my teeth/jaw line with a mold, then put on my temporary crown. Took them an hour. My new permanent crown will be ready in 2 weeks and then I'll finally be done. This root canal situation has been quite the experience. $1200 total after insurance. I have another tooth that might need one if it gets another cavity. If that happens I think I'll have that one pulled instead since its in the far back. Screw all this. x_x

      One week ago my little dog Elsa had to get a surgery to remove a few bad teeth. The vet initially though it would be 2 teeth, maybe 4 max. After they did the xray they noticed she had severe bone loss in multiple parts of her jaw and the majority of her teeth had to be removed. She has 1/3 of her teeth left.  The vet thinks it is a genetic issue that caused the periodontal disease to ravage her jaw the way it did. Shes been healing but its been a struggle. Very depressing week but shes over the worst of it now. Shes starting to feel like her old self but we're still trying to find a soft food she enjoys. More bad news is after we heard it was genetic, we checked our other dog Bella because they are cousins and she has 2 loose teeth in the front. Once we get some stimulus money we'll schedule xrays for her to see if her issue is as bad. Elsa had horrible breath going on as the main symptom but Bella's breath is fine. I hope she only needs the 2 little teeth removed. My poor babies.

      A friend was able to score me a PS5 while I was at work today. I'm pretty pumped!
