Sad, really.


I just spent five minutes plundering JZ’s Valentine’s goodie bag, looking for conversation hearts. I hadn’t bought any this year and, indeed, thought to myself, “Eh, they aren’t that great. I won’t bother.” But poor Johnny came home with a bag full of booty from his class Valentine’s party and, right on top, was a packet of Necco conversation hearts, which I proceeded to confiscate and plow through. Then I went looking for more. Apparently decades of consumption has caused me to acquire a taste for the things which will not be denied. Unfortunately the only other convo hearts in the bag were chalky-tasting knock-offs. I foresee a run to Walgreens in my future to pick up a few boxes of the good stuff.
Seasonal candy…..gets me every time. Next up will be the Cadbury Creme Eggs.

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. My sweet little boy shared some of these with me today. I’m not big on candy but I just couldn’t seem to stop eating them! They are good!
    I just LOVE Cadbury eggs! I’m sure they’ll be on the shelves by Monday!
