Friends in low places

I’ve bitched before about my inability to get cinnamon candy in the UK. At least, not without paying scary Amazon “we flew these over first class for you today” prices. Well, lookee who has a 24-pack!

I made friends with a candy shop owner in town, who declared himself an essential business (candy is food, dammit) and thus is open. Dude knows his stuff. He got these and Hot Tamales for me. Also, he sells a mean chocolate-covered raisin.

The reason I put my big stupid hand in every photo is for scale. And so you can’t see how cluttered my countertops are.

Oh, watched Joe Biden’s presser earlier. I don’t usually watch press conferences, but his has the exciting unpredictable-but-potentially-disastrous atmosphere of Formula 1 racing or a high wire act.

He didn’t exactly crash and burn, though. He rambled, made a few oopsies, but his eyes were clear and his speech was a lot less slurred than it has been of late.

I want a bucket of whatever it is they shoot him up with before these things.

Joe is the first college in his family to go to the moon.
But he’s worried about that guy, Donald Duck, that he’s running against.

Joe Biden seems to be slowly morphing into a babbling prune in real time.

Well the good news here is we’ll probably be able to call Taiwan China again before the end of the Biden/Harris term of office.

Red Hots and Hot Tamales! Prepare for your taste buds to go into shock. But they’re worth it, right.

Tis just another day in the life of the spoon
Out of the dishwasher and back again soon
Into hot coffee and take a couple of spins
A short rest on the saucer and it’s hot water again
In the dishwasher it’s all darkness and storm
Not very exciting but at least you stay warm.

A boring existence for someone who thinks
But Spoon’s deepest thought sounds like ‘Clink, Clink!”
He’s just happy for the touch of a warm hand every day.
And I’d venture to guess that, deep down, we all feel that way.

Since you’re talking about snackies I have a question on the official dogma for Gozer the Gozerian.

Is my reading correct that Mr. Stay-Puft is one of the pre-chosen forms?

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
