Knock, this thing on?

Hey lurkers! I know you're out there. *waves to Kathey*

Do they still make Wacky Wafers? I loved those things, especially the watermelon ones. Yummmm! Hmmm...seems the answer is no. How sad.

I feel a little bit as though I have rabbits burrowing in my brain. I mean, I can't seem to hold on to a thought. I use up all my concentration at work and when I come home it's as though I was (were?) a balloon that someone filled up with air and held pinched shut all day,* and as soon as I walk in the door, PSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSST! all the air rushes out of me along with all my rabbit-chewed braincells and I go flying around the room and land, limp, on the couch. Which explains the increasingly disjointed entries I seem to be unable to stop posting lately. Rabbits ate my brain!

Question: Is it suddenly come-into-the-parlor season for spiders? If not, why do we seem to suddenly have so DAMN MANY of them in the house?

OH MAN, I AM SO BUMMED!! I just opened my last remaining little bag of dark chocolate M&M's only to discover they are PEANUT M&M's. Bleah. And I gave a bag of regular ones to my friend Angie. If I'd only known! O the humanity!! I was SO jonesing for some quality American chocolate. waaah! I only do girl nuts. :P

brain-eating rabbits

*insert zombie joke here*

Some days I find it really hard to come up with something to write in this journal. (really? you say, I hadn't noticed. And then you roll your eyes) But I do write. I write something. At least I usually do, if I'm not on vacation or sick as a dog or home so late it's too much of an effort. Even if nothing worth writing about happened that day, even if my harebrained (HA! get it?) wormy mind can't settle or stick to anything coherent. If I feel this much pressure to write in my little journal, imagine the kind of pressure someone like Dooce must feel. No wonder she hasn't pooped in over a year.

There is bad pressure, though, and there is good pressure. Even though I sometimes feel pressured (by myself! Not by you! Never by you!) to write here every day, it's not a CHORE. After all, I AM pretty consistent about writing, and we'll not talk about the state of things under the bathtub, okay? Or the current state of this journal. Heh.

Really Great Writing Out There Right Now: American Morning

Do these rabbits appear at night? ;o) I thought I heard something chewing away at me while I was awake with insomnia last night and today my brain is gone.

Who care? Not need brain!

I worked at the Willy Wonka factory in Itasca, IL in 1996, and we made Wacky Wafers then! I even worked on that machine sometimes!

You're kidding!! Really?! How cool! I might have to do some more research. Had Nestle bought them at that point?

I love it when you wig out woman!

Oh the unrelated - related thread of rabbits brain eating, and your other comments. The use of Google. A great little journal piece.

Others will want to steal this style.

Actually this was a very funny entry, especially the random cut and paste from Google. It doesn't matter to us Liz, you could post your grocery list and we'd read it ;o)

Really? I'll have to try that. >:P

oops, the that was from me, I forgot to sign in.

Question: Is it suddenly come-into-the-parlor season for spiders? If not, why do we seem to suddenly have so DAMN MANY of them in the house?

Do you think that you could fill a jar of them & send over to my house? We're in the middle of a war with black ants, and could use some allies :)

or an exchange.

I'll pack up Ellen, who loves spiders! She could do a "search & release" programe.

Great entry & very enjoyable

I don't really want ants, thanks anyway :P We have ALL kinds of spiders, though, and you are more than welcome to them: black, brown, grey, jumping, slavering, long-legged, short-AND-long-legged, short-legged, fuzzy, tiny, mid-sized, gigantic...*shudders*


I agree about peanut M&Ms. I can eat them, but I'd never buy them. How do you feel about girl vs. boy brownies? I am 100% against nuts in brownies.

I also hear you about the spider problem. I had a most uncomfortable stand-off with a daddy long legs in the shower the other day. He won.


For some strange reason, daddy long-legs don't bother me nearly as much as any other kind of spider. I don't know why.

And I only eat non-nut brownies, and nuts in chocolate chip cookies: SACRILEGE.
