Goodbye, The Internet, how I will miss you so

My freeloading wifi access has officially come to an end. As such, I need a recommendation for an internet service provider. I need something fast, easy to use, reliable and obviously, inexpensive.

Also, I need all the fixins and trimmins, like a modem and something to make my desktop become wifi able. Whatever that stuff is, I need it.

Plz halp.

Don't look now - it's The Ingredients!

I'm making an effort to go out to eat no more than once each week and when I do, I try to avoid the typical fast food joints and instead go with locally owned restaurants. But when it comes to eating at home, it's hard to make homemade meals regularly and I end up having frozen dinners or some sort of prepared dinner concoction.

Tonight's main course: Classic Double Cheeseburger Hamburger Helper. And for the vegetable: a handful of peas, the kind that have been frozen and then boiled in the microwave.

Double Cheeseburger Macaroni

Hamburger Helper Ingredients:
Enriched Macaroni (Durum Semolina, Durum Flour, Niacin, Ferrous Sulfate [Iron], Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Corn Starch, Maltodextrin, Enriched Flour (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Iron, Thiamin Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Salt, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Mono and Diglycerides, Modified Corn Starch, Corn Syrup (Dried), Ricotta Cheese (Whey, Milkfat, Lactic Acid, Salt), Nonfat Milk, Monosodium Glutamate, (Dried) Cheddar Cheese (Milk, Cheese Cultures, Salt, Enzymes), Natural Flavor, Citric Acid, Color (Yellows 5&6, Yellow Lake 5 and Red Lake 40), Soy Flour, Egg.

And according to this web site, this particular flavor is ranked 192 out of 197 on nutrition performance, so this might be something I need to avoid eat less of in the future.

I eat meat about three times each week. I eat a lot more vegetables than meat products, but it's difficult. I'll go back to regular salad consumption during the summer, but for now, I'm bored with eating my same-old fruits and vegetables on a daily basis. I need suggestions. I've made several homemade soups to freeze in serving-size batches, but it's either that or the other side attraction of frozen-then boiled peas/carrots/broccoli. No wonder I feel like vegetable-consumption is a self-forced issue. What vegetable recipes end up in regular rotation at your house?

Dammit, woman, you trying to kill me?

There are a few local soap makers who's products I buy religiously. But, this, this exfoliating soap is rough, man.

Ouch. That hurts.

Those brown things are twigs of some sort.

See for yourself.

Ouch. That hurts.

Told ya, there's wood in them-thar soaps.

So, do you have an exfoliating soap you can recommend?
