Random Thoughts

Sorry for not posting in almost a week! I've been super busy...you know how it goes. This is going to be very random, but randomness can be good, right?

I got my taxes done. Whoo hoo! It only took me about a half hour, and I also got my return already. Good times. If you don't use TaxCut, I would highly recommend it. I've been using it for about 5 years and never had any problems. It makes it extremely easy to e-file, so you never have to worry about sending anything in. You also can have the return deposited into your checking account without even having to think about it.

Secondly, one of my poor parakeets died. I know it seems small, but I had two of them who just loved each other! Now it's sad because the one who's still living is just pacing and pacing in the cage because he's not sure what to do! I'm wondering if he might die also, since birds form really tight bonds with each other. Of course, I don't want that to happen, but I'm just being realistic. Parakeets normally only live 3 years, and I've had these for 2, so I suppose it's a bit premature.

Thirdly, I've been eating SO MUCH candy lately. What's up with that? I mean I have a sweet tooth, but don't really buy too much candy because as soon as I do it's GONE in a day. No matter how big the bag is. I swear, it's a wonder I still have all my teeth and don't weigh 800 pounds. But Friday I ate a whole bag of conversation hearts. Yesterday I ate ANOTHER bag of conversation hearts. Today I ate almost a whole bag of tootsie pops, and tonight I ate a ton of Laffy Taffy. Geez. Help me. Good thing I have good dental insurance and a fantastic dentist. I might have to get dentures.

And finally, the song I've been loving lately and cannot get out of my head is an oldie, but a goodie. "You're Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else," by the Jones Girls. Check it out sometime!

I blame February for the sugar! Even though it's the shortest month, it feels like the longest! The days are getting just a bit warmer, enough to tease you into wanting spring NOW!...and then I look for a lift with chocolate. *sigh*

I was just about to compose a note to you that said 'Dear Abe, You haven't blogged in 6 days' but lo and behold you blogged.

Did you know that Laffy Taffy are one of my favorite candies? Although I only like the banana. Laffy Taffy and Tootsie Rolls. Yumm.

Poor 'keets. I'm sure he'll cope somehow.

The reason that you're eating more candy is because YOU ARE NOT SMOKING, RIGHT????

As far as the conversation hearts, blech. I am with you totally on the tootsie pops though.

I have been sitting at the computer for now... about a half an hour.
I keep running to the candy dish in the living room for caramels, one at a time!
Just found out a little while ago about your "(para)normal" experience tonight. I didn't realize you predicted it until just now.
Yes, only the banana Laffy Taffys for me, too.
Talk about an absolutely hideous artificial candy!

I'm sorry to hear about your parakeet :( That's so sad! And don't feel bad about the candy thing - I just ate an entire bag of cotton candy. But I've also had about 10 cavities in my life (yikes!!!)
