Smarterer might not be so smart

I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I'm not crazy about Smarterer.

I have to admit that I'm kind of fascinated by the way the time ticks down and that plus the level of the question determine the points one gets. But other than that, it just isn't too exciting. I guess they don't have tests on anything I care about.

Private Selection foods are pretty good

This post is in connection with Bzzagent, through which I got coupons for a free Private Selection appetizer, pizza, and frozen dessert.

I got a coupon to give me three free Private Selection products: an appetizer, a pizza, and a dessert. The appetizer (kind of quesadilla in a horn) was very tasty, though a little too spicy for me. The pizza was just okay, and I'm not crazy about crisp crust, which was the only option. The molten lava cakes were really yummy but awfully small. So the food was very good, though not always to my taste. My main problem with all of the Private Selection products I saw is that they are just way too expensive. Okay, I got them for free, and that was great, but I wouldn't buy them at more than $2 per pound. Your mileage may vary, of course.
