On Our Snacks, Ourselves

@Allison My best friend and I would eat BAGS of the peanut butter M&Ms when we were studying for finals in college. Cause, you know, brain food with all that sugar.

On Our Snacks, Ourselves

Wait, they stopped making crispy M&Ms? That's too bad- they were so good! I must admit I'm a huge fan of the mini M&Ms and that's what I usually get! I keep a candy jar on my desk for my students and it's amazing how much faster it goes when there's a variety of candy instead of just, say, Hershey kisses. We also keep a drawer of random snacks and the fruit gummies are by FAR the favorite, which I think is so cute.

On Going Without Health Insurance

@Stina Oh this. I don't get health insurance for the "I get sick a lot" benefits, but for the "everyone else in the world is an idiot and might hit me with a bus" benefits. HUGE difference. Eating right and exercise can only protect you so much- what happens if she gets cancer, or mugged and brutally beaten? This reeks of teenage invincibility syndrome.

@RiffRandell @LookUponMyWorks It's the thought that counts? I guess? I like polite drunk people better than rude drunk people, ha ha.

On Here Is Your Open Thread

@Elsajeni The building could have made arrangements for us to park somewhere else for the day instead of telling us that we're SoL. Every other place I've ever lived has done that when they had to close the lot for one reason on another. It would be one thing if it were an isolated incident, but she's just terrible at her job.

@kentuckygal Kentucky in spring really is the best. I miss it SO much! Too bad my in-laws live in Lexington, or I'd move back in a hearbeat.

@Marille " Sunday I didn't spend any money, because it was Easter and I felt guilty about potentially being the reason low-wage workers have to miss time with their families so we can buy shit" I try so hard to do this on holidays for that reason! I worked retail for 3 years and sometimes it sucked.

@RiffRandell Late night food is always worth it, though!

@LookUponMyWorks Wellllllllllll the Reese's eggs may have disappeared on Saturday, ha ha. Sunday was mostly church and mini Reese's (I have a problem, which is why I'm starting a "no candy" thing today). Last year we went to my in-laws for Easter and it was really nice; this year, my husband had/has 130 pages to write for school. Wasn't going to happen if we went away for a whole weekend.
