It’s fucking cold. That is all. Advertisements

Want some?


This is an actual advertisement I saw for these Oreo Granola bar things. Notice the marijuana leaf at the bottom. Sure, maybe it’s 100 calories, but you’ll end up munching on the whole box, right?

I was reading this lovely post over at Flannery’s, and it reminded me of something. One glorious day when my kids were younger (4 and 5 maybe?) I was sleeping in. They were being little angels and letting me sleep soundly. Of course, any mother knows that when things are quiet that something must be […]



I love Twix. It’s soooo delicious. It’s all caramely and chocolaty and crunchy and chewy. When I was little I remember my grandma always had a box of them available in a bottom cupboard. She didn’t put them up high so I couldn’t reach them. She loved me. But, I don’t remember ever sneaking to […]
