bottled water and grand central

just had to comment on some of the stuff that's on the front page but not on the boards.

i don't know what it is, but i really dislike the taste of evian water. something about it just tastes funky, kind of like the way rolling rock beer always tastes skunky (rhyme unintentional). it's got sort of a plastic taste to it, and i've never tried the kind in the glass bottles so maybe that makes a difference. a bunch of us at work often have this debate (yes, i work in an exciting place), and although we disagree over our favorite water, we're all in agreement that evian's not it. i personally prefer fiji or spa.

as for grand central, alas, as i work basically next door, i must say i'm disappointed so far with what's there. even custard beach let me down - chocolate was too sweet, strawberry boring. that sprinkle machine is mesmerizing though, kind of like watching the machines at the laundromat in miniature.
