"The vanilla Milky Way bar, which was covered in dark chocolate rather than milk chocolate, was renamed the Forever Yours bar. The Forever Yours bar remained available until 1979 when it was discontinued. Due to popular demand, the Forever Yours bar returned in 1989 renamed as the Milky Way Dark bar. In 2000, it was renamed again, creating the now-popular Milky Way Midnight bar."

I don't think I'm ever going to call it a Milky Way ever again....

Forever Yours is much more fetching.

But, how would you like a $40.00 gift certificate to any CSN store?  Can you say shopping spree?  Because you can pretty much buy anything here...

The One with the Cheeseballs.

Admit it, most of you at some point in your life,
have bought a container of these.  Am I right? 
They are bad for you, filled with things your body doesn't
need and shouldn't ingest, but you eat them anyway.

I was sitting on the couch after putting the kids to bed, and I
had a little dish filled with the above cheeseballs.  And I was
chomping on my merry way, reading EW magazine.

Chloe comes tiptoeing out of her bed, spying on me.
Seeing that I was eating her cheeseballs.
She objected, asked for some, got denied
and then went to bed.

I went to check on her after a few pages of magazine. 
I covered her up, letting my eyes linger 
on her peaceful face
that most certainly couldn't
have called me mean and
threated to slam the door
earlier that evening...

She turned over and 
fluttered her eyes at me and said
"Did you eat all the cheeseballs?"

I laughed, and tucked her in tighter.  
She was asleep.

I went out and ate some more
cheeseballs.
Glorious cheeseballs!

Just because I could.

Could Not Resist.


What can I say.  Sometimes you need to get a piece of your childhood back. 

Willow: Meegosh... did we do the right thing?
Meegosh: Absolutely. There's nothing to worry about.
Franjean: Yaaah, ha-ha! I stole the baby, I stole the baby**, ha-ha! Yah!
Willow: That's my baby! Stop, wait, come back!

** I like to say this when I hold a baby.  It's more fun that way. Try it.

You say Tomato, I say Shut Up **


** PS - The title of my post is actually a book -- you can check it out HERE.  I have not read it, I just heard about it and it cracked me up.  I will never say the phrase normally again. :)

PPS - I did not draw the cartoon, I just colored it using Paint to amuse my co-worker.  We both think this site is terribly funny, but you have to hit it on the right day and on the right cartoon.  Click HERE for the link.

It's good to be Queen.


This week alone, I've dreamed about John Mayer, George Lopez, and Martha Plimpton.  In the John Mayer dream, I was stalking him.  He finally decided to invite me in and let me live with him.  It should be noted that I'm not a fan of John Mayer,  and his song "say what you need to say" makes me want to hire him a new song writer.  In the George Lopez dream, as I was talking to him, I was thinking to myself, this guy isn't ever funny, is he.  But in the Martha Plimpton dream, the conversation went like this:

MK:  You did a fabulous job in the movie Running On Empty.  Loved that movie.
MP:  Thank you.
MK:  However I really didn't care for that Mosquito Coast movie, at all.
MP:  *Speechless*

Martha has also been in the TV show Fringe, which I like to occasionally dabble in... however it's too complicated most of the time. This reality, that reality, wait a second... is that Joshua Jackson?  I love Joshua Jackson!

He is sooooo pretty, dontcha think?  Really, my only reason to watch the show.


Oh look, there's a chicken!

You Know it's Gonna Be a Good Day....

when you come into work and find this on your desk:


It's true that I don't like cats, but I wish I'd gotten this instead:

PS When you drink a 32 ounce Diet Coke (bargain at Holiday,
same price as the 22 ounce) at 7 a.m., it takes a while to stop
yourself from speaking 250 words per minute.  Just an FYI.

I'm a Unit of Measurement

"The marla is a traditional unit of area in Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. The marla was standardized under British rule to be equal to the square rod, or 272.25 square feet, 30.25 square yards, or 25.2929 square metres...xyz

It is used in countries such as India and Pakistan. A 5 marla residential plot is equal to 125 metre square plot or 151.25 square yard plot. Kashif is Harami 1 sq inch = 6.45159 sq cm = 0.06452 sq m."

I don't want to brag, but I'm kinda famous now.  If you want me to autograph your Wiki page, just shoot my assistant an email.

Crazy Drivers

So yesterday, I was driving to lunch with my dad in the front passenger seat.  A car cut in front of me and so my dad leaned over and LAID. ON. THE. HORN.

Now, I know from driving in other people's cars, this is a definite no-no.  My sister told me of a time when she pulled this exact stunt when she was with a friend and he loudly yelled at her "NOBODY BUT ME EVER, EVER, EVER TOUCHES THE HORN".

But when my dad honked the horn, I just laughed.  I laughed so hard.  This man, this retired Minnetonka cop who has spent years of his life on the road scolding and giving tickets still uses the horn with vigor.  I said "Dad, Honk on" and grinned madly at him.

I think honking is a dying art in Minnesota.  Maybe it's the Minnesota Nice that's wrecking it all.  But for me personally, the horn is super fun.  Why not use it?  It's not like people hold back honking at me... I just like to return the favor.
