Olive Garden or Grape Garden?

An observation...

Look at the Olive Garden logo. I see grapes...not olives. Isn't that strange? But then again, I could be wrong. I don't like olives, and I'm not really sure what they look like outside of a jar.

So...plan accordingly.

Christmas Candy

I love Christmas candy. It's the time of year when mint chocolate makes it's annual appearance. This, however, is not about mint chocolate. I got the most awesome piece of Christmas candy this past week - and I thought I'd share it with you. It doesn't have the generic or boring messages that Christmas candy usually know, like "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays"...instead it says...

"I promise to do better next year."

Awesome. Got it from my Secret Santa. She must know me pretty well...

Sad Secret Santa Story

My office plays Secret Santa every year, so we're in the middle of it for this year. It's weird this year because there are so many new people in our office. And since there are so many new people, not everyone knows I'm allergic to peanuts.

I'm guessing that the person who got me is new, because I've gotten peanut butter candy from him/her twice already...the second time was this morning. I opened the door to my office and caught a whiff of the chocolate peanut butter bells that were on my desk. Nice thought, sweet gift, but OMG. This happened at 7:55 a.m. and it is now 9:25 a.m. I'm still sneezing, coughing and sniffling.

I felt bad, but I had to bring the candy out and give it to others in the office, then had to leave my office door open so I could air the office out and breathe.

Poor monkey. No laughing this morning. I'll post later with a funnier story.
