Hello, Duke University

I love it that this weekend’s Google brought me a researcher from Duke University inquiring “how much money does a person working at the White House make”?

Oops, I spy in my peripheral vision a little something hanging from the right hinge of my eyeglasses. Reach up and pluck it off. A piece of aluminum foil? Oh, a bit of Hershey’s Kiss wrapping. How did that get there!

By the way, a tip. Don’t buy goody bag Hershey’s Kisses for goody bags several days before birthday goody bags will be given out at child’s birthday party. Very few remained for the goody bags. A remnant couple took refuge in my desk drawer. But I caught ’em.

  1. The Hershey’s Kiss Law is similar to the Halloween Candy Law… never buy what you like or it will be gone before the actual event.

    Hey, speaking of actual events… any baking going on?? Hmmm? Hmmm??

  2. Nope. It hurt the Ikea gingerbread house’s feelings when it was turned down as an entry since I didn’t mix it up with my own hands and bake it. At the time, there was nothing in the rules about having to bake your cookie entry with your own little hands, and I stand by my Ikea gingerbread house in its pursuit of justice.

  3. One’s gotta do what one’s gotta do.

    If you do make the house, I say you doll it up as a nice bordello and then we’ll post the photos. 🙂

    I wonder if anyone has ever done a gingerbread bordello…

  4. My blog didn’t pop up and yell at me, “Did you see what she said? Did you see what she said?” That’s because it is a prepared blog.

    It’s prepared for just about anything.

    Right now, I can think of very few things that would surprise my blog.

    Except a govt that’s not bought and paid for. That would surprise my blog.

    Actually, come to think of it, a fair number of things would surprise my blog.
