I wish I had something spectacular lined up for the big 300, but, alas, all I have is long grain brown rice in a bottle. The label is brown, and the pine tree on the roof of the Volkswagen Beetle reminded me of hay which, in turn, reminds me of the grains harvested from wheat and the grains of rice in this bottle.
300 bottles down, only 65 more to go. I know it's been a bumpy, unpredictable ride, but this milestone still feels big to me.

Just got through another busy stretch of time, brought to me by life. Work. Work out. Work on this and that. Finally, a day off. I had tried to post yesterday, but Blogger, for one reason or another, was unavailable...
But, regardless, I'm pretty proud of this bottle. Yeah, it looks alright, but the filler-to-label connection is brilliant. Think of the old Batman television series. The comic-like action sounds of "bam" and "zoink" as Batman and Robin beat the tar out of the evil-doers. In this bottle, black eyed peas.

No, really, I'm posting in such a hurry that I'm not even sure what is in today's bottle. Details later? We'll see.
And away we go,
P.S. - Just rememberred. Peanut shells. Girl on sidewalk. I imagine a peanut shell littered sidewalk, like outside of a baseball stadium. Bubblegum. There.
I guess the idea behind the filler-to-label-connection on this bottle is a little stereotypical, and for that, I apologize. On the label, a man donning a beret lovingly shows affection for what I assume is his daughter. I think of France which, with a stretch of the imagination, makes me think of Italy. In the bottle, Italian salad dressing.
That is all,

Okay, let's not get carried away. There are far too many categories of candy and far too many "Best Candies Ever" to call Peanut Butter M&M's the best candy ever. But, regardless and without debate, they are damn good. Now, now, before you try and call me for reposting filler, look carefully. The candies in Day 272's bottle is Peanut M&M's, these are clearly Peanut Butter.
I don't know, I'm just in a good mood right now and talking about these delicious, perfectly crunchy, creamy morsels is making it better. I've found a diet that works, just ran two personal record miles back-to-back (7.5 minutes), and have vowed to stick to this routine for another 20 days until D.B.'s Summer Slip-n-slide Bash.
Good night, all you beautiful people,

Great Northern Beans. I graduated high school in 2005 from Forest Hills Northern. Our mascot was a husky. The F.T.L.C. should be obvious by now, but in case it isn't, think of the great white north. Think of snow and the outdoors. Think of sled-dogs and the beautiful husky.
