Juicy Stripe Gum

My boss brought this gum into work today....

It's lovely!  I haven't had it in years and years!  I LOVED it so much when I was little.  Even the smell of it brings back such wonderful memories!!!  I could sit there and smell it all day...  I really could.  The taste now lasts about 4 seconds, and gets as hard as a rock... but it's so wonderful, that it doesn't even matter!  And they even still have the tattoos.  AWESOME!!!  Michael and I put them on our arms.  We're amazing.  :)  If you've never had this gum before... you are missing out on good times.  If you have... go to Cracker Barrell and get some.  You won't be sorry. 

(If anyone else knows where you can get this.... I would love to know!)

Friday Fellow

It's been awhile since I've done my Friday Fellow... sorry about that.  I'm getting back on track.  Maybe... ;) 

This is my friend Brandon Mull...

He wrote this book...

It's marvelous!  You should read it!!! 

Yay Brandon!!!  (We've been friends for a long time and if you ever meet him, ask him to do a raspberry sneeze.  It's amazing!!!)

(PS... This picture means nothing.  I was just looking for a "YAY" picture, and it brought up this.  I love this dog!  Whatever.)

Deep Thought Thursday

So I've decided that every Thursday I'm going to share a "Deep Thought" with you by my favorite... Jack Handey.  He's a very wise man.  I hope you learn a thing or two from him...

"I think there is more wisdom in a single drop of rain than there is in all the books in all the libraries of the world.  Wait, not rain.  Super-concentrated brain juice."

Grocery Shopping...

I went grocery shopping today.  If you don't know... I don't like it.  Sure, I love having lots of yummy food in the house... but all the rest of it, no good.  But what can you do.  You have to go out and get it.  So I did.  And actually, it wasn't half bad.  I found myself some great deals, and had a nice snack tonight while watching a little TV.  ("24" if you must know...)  ;) 

This is what I wish though... that you could grocery shop over the internet.  I know some places do this... but I don't know of anywhere around here.  And I'm sure it cost tons extra.  Probably not worth it.  But that's what I wish for.  I wish that someone would take my order, bring it to me, and even put it away (though I don't really mind that part of it). 

Maybe next shopping time I'll make a game of it.  Only get food that has a red label, or food that all starts with the same letter.  That could be good fun! 

Of course, after watching the Michael Buble video... maybe I should grocery shop more often!!!  :)

I just would like everyone to know that I have tomorrow off!  And I'm VERY excited for it!  I've been working up a little storm the last few days, and I'm a bit ready for a breather.  Not just bookstore stuff... but lots of other little, fun things have been going on.  I have some easy going, fun plans for tomorrow- first and foremost being sleeping in!  Luckily, Kitty is a HUGE fan of snuggling the mornings away.  Good girl!  (Right now she's staring at something in the closet... but there's nothing in the closet except my suitcases.... or so I hope!  I don't get her... )  ;)

I've made a list and I've checked it twice...  but I'm here to tell ya... if I don't get it done tomorrow, I'll try again another day!  Yay for a whatever day. 

Now if only I could get someone to play some hooky with me...

The Joys Of Inventory...

Tonight was inventory at the bookstore... such good times!  Really.  You get to go to work in your casual clothes, get free dinner, and best of all- you get to do numbers the whole time instead of letters!  It was SO great!!!  What a nice change.  :) 

Oh the fun we can have at Barnes & Noble.  It's like you walk into the store and forget how to be mature...  and I like it!

Of course now... I would prefer not to count again for a long time.  Counting for 8 hours, pretty straight through, has reassured me that I can still count.  Seasame Street would be SO proud!!!

A Poem..

I wrote a poem for everyone...  Here goes.

Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.

Wouldn't you like to get away?

Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name,
And they're always glad you came.

You wanna be where you can see,
Our troubles are all the same
You wanna be where everybody knows
Your name.

You wanna go where people know,
People are all the same,
You wanna go where everybody knows
Your name.

A Little Game For You...

Summer Mull and I used to play this game where we would type a ton of gibberish and then see what words we came up with or whatever else we could find.  I thought it would be fun to play. 

SO... can you find any fun words?  Any groups of letters that mean something fun?

Just a quick hi...

I'm tired.  I stayed up too late watching "24" and reading.  But I wanted to say hi, and let everyone know Kitty and I are doing well.  She's sitting next to me snoring up a storm.  LITERALLY snoring.  She doesn't do it too often, but it's funny when she does, cause I can see her little lip go up and down.  Much like the cartoons!  Silly girl.

PS... I think I found the REAL e-mail address for Reid...  My one true love!  ;)  Should I write him?  And if so, what should I say???  (I'm giggling while writing all this...)

Oh Bachelor...

Another season come and gone. And even though I STILL think Jake is a doofus... it was good times had by all. We had some laughs, and we cried (over what dorky things some of them did), but all in all, you have to love the show!

Tonight was the season finale... and I won't tell who Jake picked in case you haven't gotten to watch it yet... but I will say, I'm not surprised nor am I upset. I feel he got who he deserved. I don't know how long it will last... but good luck. Who am I to say who belongs with who. And who knows how the really are... I think they edit that show with their own thoughts in mind. Hey, they keep getting viewers, so they must be doing something right!

Next season will be a "Bachelorette" starting in May. It will be Alli, and I'm happy about that! 1. because she's a cute girl, and I think it will be a lot of fun with her. And b. because the guys are ALWAYS fun to watch. Sometimes they are more emotional with each other than girls. It's hysterical!!!

Hopefully I'll find someway to get through these next two months!!! Luckily LOST has started, and I always have The Office. Good times me. :)

And I'll always love Reid the best!!!
