Some Days Just Call for a Kitchen Sink Cookie

They are overpriced at Panera, I bought one once when I was using the Panera wifi to write blog posts. the cookie has chocolate Chips, sea salt, caramel, possibly potato chips and nuts. It has a bunch of things in it and tastes really good.

I had gotten up late from my day’s sleep and was rushing all over the house trying to take care of things and get out the door so that I could stop at Smashburger for dinner. I got to Smashburger and the wait was 26 minutes once you placed your order. Nope. Didn’t have enough time for that. So I went into Gamestop quickly and saw that they had some of the Mario Sports Superstars amiibo cards. I picked up two packages so that each of the kids could open a package. I got them because we were just given two download codes to use on the Nintendo 3DS systems that we have (my old one and my new one). The new one can read the amiibo cards, the old one cannot. I don’t think they’ll use the cards much, but I will with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Switch. Apparently there are 90 cards to collect for the game. We’ll be doing an actual review of the game later this week.

After Gamestop I decided to try out a new place call Which Wich, a sandwich shop, but it was so confusing and convoluted that I just walked out. I was pretty frustrated that I couldn’t have what I was craving for my whole drive to work and then basically going into and out of a few places while the time ticked by was also no fun. I went into Panera and the Kitchen Sink Cookie looked really good. So, I got one.

One of our family’s favorite games on the Wii U is Splatoon. Well on The Nintendo Switch we are going to be getting Splatoon 2 to play. It is still about a month away but today (3/24/17), tomorrow (3/25/17) and Sunday (3/26/17) players will have a chance to participate in an ink-redible event, here the top 5 things you should do:

1. DOWNLOAD THE FREE DEMO: Just head to Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch and download the Global Testfire demo before playing. It won’t cost you any snails.

2. MARK YOUR CALENDARS: With ink, of course. Here are the times you can play to get tentacle-on time with Splatoon 2 before it launches:
March 24: 12-12:59 p.m. PT
March 24: 8-8:59 p.m. PT
March 25: 4-4:59 a.m. PT
March 25: 12-12:59 p.m. PT
March 25: 8-8:59 p.m. PT
March 26: 4-4:59 a.m. PT

Nintendo Treehouse was livestreaming Splatoon 2 gameplay during the first Global Testfire event on March 24 between noon and 12:59 p.m. PT. Tune in to http://live.nintendo.com to watch!

3. IN THE LAB OR ON-THE-GO: With the first Splatoon game, you had to conduct important cephalopod research from the comfort of your own lab. But with Splatoon 2 on Nintendo Switch, you can take the messy action anywhere you go that has a Wi-Fi connection. Maybe you want to choose an untraditional location to participate in the Global Testfire. It’s up to you!

4. GET PRIMED WITH A CONTROL & WEAPON OVERVIEW: Research can be conducted with either a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller or Joy-Con controllers. Splat Dualies are a new weapon type, while mainstays like the Splat Roller and Splat Charger have been remixed to allow for new battle strategies.

5. CAPTURE YOUR RESEARCH: An important step in the scientific method is to make observations. We recommend capturing your findings with the Capture button on the Joy-Con or Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, then later sharing it with your peers in the scientific community (or if you’re like our intern, use Facebook or Twitter). When publishing your research, please use the octothorp symbol (#) followed by “Splatoon2” or “Testfire.”
