Milky Ways gots Marshmallows

I was at the store last night and saw a bag of those Popables. In Milky Way Dark. Only my all time favorite. So I bought it and brought it to my happy home. This morning I opened the bag to bring a handful along with lunch. Then I tried to reseal it. It had one of those ridiculous pieces of tape that's supposed to hold the bag rolled closed.

That doesn't work.

I didn't want my candy to get stale, so I did some quick thinking and poured the rest into the smallest Foodsaver container I had and hooked up the hose to vacuum it tight.

I forgot about the nougat. If you don't know what marshmallow does in a vacuum, shame on you! Watch your Mr. Wizard people!

My little Dark chocolate Milky Way balls puffed up and cracked through the outer layer of chocolate. It was about the funniest thing I've ever seen.

God listens, even long distance

For those that don't live in Maryland (and for those that do and haven't looked outside), we've gotten some snow. About 6 inches of it. Andy's a little upset since he's out of town for our first real sign of winter this year. I was a little upset about having to shovel the driveway myself.

About 30 minutes ago an enterprising youth from the neighborhood just asked if he could shovel my walk. For "I dunno, $5?"

Figuring that would be at least a pathway to the street and one less strip to shovel I said sure! I looked out 10 minutes later figuring he should be about done and I didn't see him. Hoping he hadn't taken off without his money I looked out the door. He was shovelling the entire driveway.

I gave him $10 since it was all I had in my wallet, believe me I would've given him a $20 if I'd had it, I was so grateful.

Sweetie, I know you're praying for me to be looked after while you're gone just like I'm praying for you. I'd say it's definitely working.

Gone (apologies in advance for this being so localized a topic)

WHFS is gone. Gone, gone, gone. It is now a spanish radio station. Don't believe me?

The Junkies were on as normal yesterday morning. On the drive home I turned on the radio and....spanish. I thought it was a joke. Until I flipped around and landed on 98 Rock, posers that they are, were celebrating the death of 99.1

14 years of listening down the tubes. I refuse to listen to DC101. I HATE DC101. Stupid Elliott and his stupid fake laugh. I never forgave Acquaman for his conversion.

They did a story on it in the Post this morning. Front page. While I too am upset, I don't think it warranted front page coverage. And they had a quote in the article from a former DJ. Guess who. That's right, Damian. Of all the people to pick.

Fingers crossed that the Junkies will make a return to JFK.

Where am I going to find good music now? I may just have to grow up!

Head Cold

I hate trying to breathe with a head cold. It feels like sucking a Frosty through a coffee stirrer.
