Buffalo Bill's Limited Edition Extra Smokey Beef Sticks

Why is there an E in that title? I'm not sure, but I have some in front of me.

"Flavor from the Old Country"

They sure are beefy. But mainly salty.

Also apparently they come from Lebanon. I didn't know Lebanon was in Pennsylvania.

Strangely, 'smoke' isn't one of the ingredients. But Paprika is.

what it is my doge

So I've been doing a fair amount of gaming and programming lately, here's some highlights:

  • Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires is still a lot of fun albeit a little derivative. Sure, the series basically doesn't change, but it still does what it does, well. I've got most of the achievements already. Just need to finish Guan Du and Chi Bi and play as a bunch of other people. I wish they'd make more interesting achievements for the DW games. Maybe I'll get DW Gundam, those look better.
  • Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is also on my Now Playing list. Looks good so far, very WRPG-lets-you-do-anything-you-damn-well-want although the enemies I'm getting to now hit me for about a billion damage so you probably can't do things THAT out of order. I know Aphox speedran the game in about 4 hours so it must be fairly breakable. I'm playing as a Mage which probably blows but whatever. I feel like I'll end up playing this game multiple times.
  • Pokémon SoulSilver is back in my DS and I'm actually playing it. It's probably my favourite one yet; the pokémon don't look dumb yet, and the mechanics of Gen4, though there's about eight thousand moves I don't know the effect of now. I just caught Lugia, and now I have to do the dreaded Victory Road. My party isn't very powerful.
  • League of Legends still occupies a lot of my time; I've found a few people to play ARAMs with and they're a bunch of laughs.
