WATER WATER EVERYWHERE…

NOR ANY DROP TO DRINK!

Recently, Ryan and I did some research about water filters. You might have seen our post about LIFE and how I tested the cleanliness of our water.

Well, we bought a filter and we are so pleased with it! I was telling a friend about it recently and she said that I should do infomercials!

Well… here is my infomercial… also known as:

Pinkberrys And Other Berries

UPDATE (August 29, 2008)

The New York Times had a great article entitled “The All-Natural Taste That Wasn’t,” on the hypocritical fake-ness of what goes into Pinkberry’s so-called “all natural” fro-yo.  Seriously, y’all!  California should open its eyes to the possibility of Frozen Custard!  It’s a little taste of heaven in a cup.

Sooo… who wants to go get some fro-yo?

P.S. It’s the taste that launched 1000 parking tickets!

Key quote: “I would get Pinkberry IV’ed into my veins if I could.”

P.P.S.  Ryan didn’t want me to post the scathing review until I’d actually HAD some pinkberry…  but I’m starting to think that pinkberry might be putting the same thing in their yogurt that Tim Horton’s puts in their coffee!  Can you say “double-double”?
