Cadbury’s Mini Eggs are now available year-round courtesy of “The Other Bunny”. Fantastic! Cadbury makes the best chocolate of all the non-gourmet brands.
Clearly they’re hoping to increase their market share, and who doesn’t love those pastel colours, especially in dreary fall weather. But does that mean that come Easter, Mini Eggs are no longer a special treat?
Thanks, Cadbury, I’ll try to do my share.
I hate pants. You buy them to fit well, but then you gain 5 pounds and they’re too tight. I feel like a tool when I need to have the button undone. And if you do that, then you can’t wear a belt. Sometimes you’re supposed to tuck in (possibly the #1 worst part about dressing up)… they’re just awash with possible problems.
Right, so after a while of this, I decided it was smarter to lose a few pounds than to buy a full wardrobe of pants that fit. But not all my pants were too tight, and now I own a few pairs that are too large, and fall down unless I wear a belt. I’m still not used to this, so sometimes I’m out and feeling like a 15-year old boy who’s trying to look cool by showing as much boxers as pants. Except looking ridiculous isn’t cool (despite what passes for fashion) and again, I feel like a tool.
It seems economically sound to buy pants and just eat and exercise so that they always fit. They’re actually an early warning system for weight gain or loss, and possibly a better one than a bathroom scale, because fitting clothes matters more than an exact number weight.
Let’s go back to togas and robes, ok?
I’m always late catching up to things like technology, tv, books, etc., and Harry Potter is no exception. I read the book this summer and a conversation tonight reminded me that I really enjoyed it except for a couple of things. (scroll down for spoilers if you’re not even farther behind than me)
