I've been craving Froot Loops but I can't even afford the cheap fruit-sweetened kind in the bag on the bottom shelf at the market. Also, have you noticed
what a weird color Froot Loops are these days? They're much brighter than they used to be. I'm thinking they use lots of cochineal beetles in them.

Also, I was listening to cartoons a couple Saturdays ago and I heard about 2 things I absolutely need. One was a Flo-Motion jump rope and the other was S'Mores breakfast cereal. I think I may have hallucinated the cereal since I haven't seen it in any stores.

You get fruit loop commercials, I get public service announcements from the US Army. Yesterday, while watching the finals, they told me that drinking alcohol will get you drunk. As if… For sure… What kind of propaganda is that? We also saw Condi talking to the military during three different time outs. of course, each talk was the same, bc it was taped. Watching Condi talk brought up Chaucer and gap teeth and we wondered, is it true?

Congrats on the work in Typo. You certainly don’t brag as much as I do

I'm sorry you had to see Condi. As for the alcohol stuff, what a load of crap! Alcohol doesn't kill people, debutantes do. Congrats on your poem, too. I liked it even though it had flowers in it. The sugar cubes and the red plastic forgave the flowers.

Hummingbirds, on the other hand, are divine. Especially that sound they make arriving, that little snick like a bug in a zapper.

Something is screwy with my comments. Whenever I try to comment on my own blog everything disappears and my comments are disabled. This has happened before. I will survive!
