Why Has Candy Gotten So Expensive?

At the grocery store last night and I saw the two aisles in the middle of the store for “seasonal” items was full of big bags of candy. So I went over and looked at what they’ve got. I don’t usually get many trick or treaters at my house, but I like to keep a bag or two of candy handy just in case this year we get more goblins than expected.

They have big bags of candy but when you lift up the bag you notice that it doesn’t really have much in it. The bags have more empty air than candy bars, fro chrissake. And the price is crazy high for one bag – they want to charge anywhere from $4 to $9 for one bag of mixed Snickers/Milky Way/ Three Musketeers. I don’t know how many little candy bars are in the bag, but I think it is only about 25-30 pieces. And when they are tiny bite size like that, you can’t just give a goblin one of them 0 you have to give them at least two or three pieces.

I think I would rather just go to Sam’s Club and buy a big box of full size candy bars. The total cost per treat will probably be close to the same as giving out several bite size pieces and I think that the single bar makes more of a statement. I will give each goblin one bar and probably be a hero to the ones who come to my neighborhood this year.

Fuck I’m Hungry

Woke up too early this morning. I don’t usually even want any breakfast until I’ve been up and awake for a couple of hours. So when I got up too early it threw off my whole fucking schedule. My inner clock is messed up bad.

First thing I did was make a pot of coffee so I could function. Once the coffee was made, I took the dog out for his potty break and then took a shower. Totally skipped the Pop Tart or muffin and left the house. Now I’m still 2 hours from lunch break and I’m fucking starving!

If there’s nothing left in the break kitchen cabinets I am tempted to order pizza delivery. I can order that early and have it delivered a little early and grab a piece of hot pizza when it gets here so I don’t have to waste time getting in my car and driving somewhere, getting in line and then waiting for it to be made and passed through a window so I can fucking eat!

I guess I’ll have to make do with a snack from the vending machine. Maybe someone left a packet of instant oatmeal or instant soup in the kitchen. Anything would be better than this sick hungry feeling in my stomach. If I don’t eat something before lunch I’m going to end up with a migraine.

Best Damn Fried Chicken

If you are looking for the best fried chicken, where do you go or think of first? I used to think of Kentucky Fried Chicken right away. That is what I grew up on. My mother never fried chicken at home. She didn’t like to use all that hot oil and make the kitchen all hot and smelly. So she would buy a big bucket of KFC for dinner once in a while as a treat.

Nowadays I think of Popeyes Fried Chicken when I want the best fried chicken. Their chicken comes mild or spicy and their sides are fantastic. I always have a hard time figuring out which sides to get – I love them all!

What’s for Lunch?

It’s already past lunch time and I’m starving. Anyone have a good idea for something different for lunch? I am so sick of hamburgers that I could scream. I don’t have time for a full service, sit down restaurant. It’s gotta be fast and it has to taste good. What’s for lunch?

No Coffee?

This may turn out to be an emergency of sorts. I walked into the kitchen this morning to make a pot of coffee and there is NO COFFEE. How can that happen? I know I left enough coffee in the canister for one more pot. This can only mean that SOMEONE else made a pot of coffee yesterday or last night and they used the last of it. How totally irresponsible and inconsiderate. This has put me in a really foul mood.
