Double Helping of Beef Jerky Time: 11/22/06

I just had a traumatic experience with a brownie from Seattle's Best Coffee. I innocently requested the "smaller of the two" Chocolate Butterfinger brownies on display. I thought the guy ("Ian," according to his nametag) would just throw it in a bag and hand it over. But instead he microwaved it, and then he slathered it with chocolate and caramel syrups, and then he topped it with a tiny butterfinger bar. Then he put it in a fancy folding box (like a Chinese takeout box, but wider and with no little wire handle) and then he put the whole thing in a fancy handled paper bag. After seeing this I decided I'd need a fork and a napkin to eat it, and I took it out to the car to see what I could salvage. It just looked so... American. It was gooey, and chocolatey, and super-sweet, and warm, and kinda nasty, and did not at all resemble the brownies I know. And of course I ate the whole thing. Oopsie. It was just HWAY more than I expected.

And maybe that was listeners' reaction to last week's show. Because, like, it was TWO SOLID HOURS of BJT. The dj's of the show that usually follows ("Peel Slowly and See") were both on holiday (as the next day was Thanksgiving).... so they graciously let Beef Jerky Time take over their regular time slot from 8-9pm.
