I'm a little slow today. I just switched to Sanka. So...have a heart?

A couple thoughts:

1) I have finally found Cadbury Creme Eggs. I haven't seen them down here in the five years I've lived here. Oh, sure I haven't looked high and low for them, but for the first time, BOOM! There they were, on the counter at CVS.

Score.

2) That Jesus is the Reason for the Season bumpersticker you're sporting on the back of your SUV? Still want to flash that message to the world on a muggy Joo-lah day? Still think it's a timely and appropriate message?

Maybe they should make that preachy and sanctimonious bumpersticker, into a preachy and sanctimonious magnet... you know... like the Yellow "SUPPORT OUR TROOPS" Ribbons drivers of various Ford, Chevrolet, and General Motor Co. find no irony in attaching to the backs of their 10 MPG vehicles...

Then, come January 1, the drivers could lovingly peel the preachy and sanctimonious magnet off the back of their car, and load it into the attic, with all the other thousands of dollars worth of Christmas Decorations in varying shades of red, and green, with the Lillian Vernon Christmas runners and candles, and the adorable Pottery Barn ornaments, and the adorable and not-at-all tacky inflatable yard ornaments, where it's snowing on top of a Frosty the Snowman... yes - a Jesus is the Reason for the Season magnet would store quite nicely with all those other Jesus-centric, not-at-all-inspired-by-Pagan-beliefs-consumerism-or-Jean Autry-Songs ornaments and vestiges of the Season.

While I have absolutely no opinion whatsoever about Cadbury eggs, thought #2 resonated pretty loudly. I agree with every word. Well, except that it's Gene Autry, but ever other word.

Ummm, I've eaten them every year in Miami, so whatever :) Did I ever tell you the story about when I was in elementary school and got mad at someone and cracked open a Cadberry Eggs and put it down their shirt at lunch? Riiiiight

The eggs are everywhere @ Easter here. You can even find them @ walgreens. Afterall, what goes better with prescription drugs than chocolate?
