The Reason I Am Afraid of Dogs

...they're strange little things...

A dog chased me half way to work today (I walk to work). Lucky for me, it didn't actually chase me the whole time. Every time I looked at the dog, it would stop in its tracks. But everytime I had my back turned to the stupid thing and started walking again, it started running full force to catch up. I'm sure it was quite a show for the people that were driving by me.

Go ahead and laugh. I would too, if it wasn't me. Just don't expect me to start liking dogs any time soon.

Tim Tam Slam

(Just in case you need it, Steamy!)
If you ever get your hands on Tim Tams - the oh-so-wonderful chocolate-covered Australian biscuit - you have got to try eating them the Australian way...using the Tim Tam Slam! messy, but so good! If you think you're ready for this messy adventure, head on over to your nearest Cost Plus World Market and look for them in the cookie section.

Thrifty's Ice Cream

I LOVE this stuff! And I can't believe that there are people in this world who eat ice cream and have never heard of Thrifty's. Apparently, there are enough for me to start a list. If you find yourself on this list, that's pretty sad. Just to shield them from complete humiliation, I will only use their first name and last initial.

1. Stephanie L.
2. K.C. L.
3. LuxeAficionada

If you haven't tried Thrifty's Ice Cream, you need to be on this list. Drop me a comment and I'll add you. Who knows...maybe I'll send you a little gift...then I will be able to take you off this list! :) No liars allowed.

Oh, and if you comment and tell me your favorite Thrifty's flavor, you too may receive a nice little gift! Depends on the temperature out here in Loma Linda. If it's hot enough, maybe I'll buy you some ice cream :)

UPDATE: Too bad for the rest of y'all. The Free Ice Cream Bank is now CLOSED.

Message in a Candy Wrapper

I found this message in my candy wrapper - printed on foil in a fine orange print.

"Candy is a treat. Please consume in moderation."

Oh, yes, and this was AFTER I had finished the candy bar...ohwell, better luck next time.

New Snack: The Oreo Cakester

I'm lazy (this is a gross understatement...I'm close to being the epitome of lazy) and my doctor knows that. So recently, she asked me to exercise more...since I had an exercise bike in front of the TV. I've been good and listening to my doctor...I've actually worked out four time a week since then! You all should be so proud...

To counter this change in my lifestyle (you know, to bring balance back into my life), Nabisco has been kind enough to introduce a new product into my life - the Oreo Cakester. My sissy and I bought a box and tried it yesterday. Imagine an Oreo cookie sandwich, but with fluffy Oreo cake instead of the crunchy cookies, and a fluffier filling. It's sweet, but good! Definitely not for kids unless you want to get a workout chasing them.

Now I can't get the Oreo jingle out of my head... You can sing along - I know you want to!

"Oh, oh, cold milk and an Oreo cookie..."

BTW, if you don't like the voice of the guy that sings the jingle, sing it yourself and win $10,000! :)

You can do it too, if you haven't already...clicky clicky!!

Low Maintenance Pets

Have you ever wanted a pet but were too lazy to take care of it?
Have you ever wanted an exotic pet but were too afraid that you wouldn't know how to take care of it?
Have you ever wanted a JUMBO pet?

If any of these questions resonate with you, I have found the perfect place for you to shop for your pet(s)! It's called This Place Is A Zoo. They specialize in realistic stuffed animals. Jumbo and exotic - I believe that is the specialty they claim.

These animals are too lazy to eat, so they just sit around all day lookin' pretty. won't have to clean or feed them! Check them out - you might just find your perfect jumbo, exotic, lazy match!

Stephen Colbert OVERLOAD!

Okay, I don't know if you guys know this, but I'm a huge fan of Stephen Colbert... Therefore, I must share this AWESOME news...

If you have not yet had the pleasure of being entertained by this genius, FEAR NOT! He will be coming to DVD on November 6.

Mmm...just in time for my birthday! :) What wonderful timing, Dr. Stephen Colbert, D.F.A.! Well, okay, my birthday is November 8, but DVDs always come out on Tuesdays, so it would have to come out on the 6th, OKAY?!

Oh, and his book I AM AMERICA (and so can you!) is coming out in October - you can order it on!

You can read more about him at the Comedy Central website or at Colbert Nation! Enjoy!

Chocolate Squirrel

I haven't posted about an animal lately, so I'm going to try to make it up to you.

Once upon a time, there was a squirrel who liked chocolate. Everyday she would sneak into the nearby candymaker's shop to eat a piece of chocolate...but this was no ordinary was special. What made it special, you ask? It was wrapped in beautiful gold foil AND it had a surprise toy in the middle! She would carefully peel the gold foil off of the chocolate, eat the chocolate, and take the toy home! The End.

True story...I promise! If you don't believe me, read it here for yourself!
