Aha! I'm being tricky by posting before you're even at work. You love me as a nanny.
I am eating a delicious bowl of Golden Grahams cereal. It is one of the most perfect foods in creation. And since we're already being candid about our inability to resist carbs, let me also tell you about a surprising discovery I made--or rather, came to terms with--yesterday.
Bunny-shaped Peeps are better. I know there should be no discernible difference, because bunny Peeps and chick Peeps are the exact same thing, cut into different whimsical shapes. And I would eat a chicky Peep; don't return my Easter basket on that score. But I submit to you that the bunny Peeps taste is superior. I think it's because the stalening* process is particularly effective on bunny Peep ears, rendering them particularly toothsome. Chicky Peeps, of course, do not have ears, and their beaks are too small to be a worthwhile substitute.
* Stalening is the scientific name for the process whereby Peeps are exposed to oxygen while they achieve the optimum crunchy/soft ratio. A tip: if you are afraid that your home will be overrun with mice again if you stalen Peeps on your counter, try placing the partially-open packages in the refrigerator. There is a slight risk that they will absorb some wayward fridge odors, but if they do then you have some other issues you need to address.
The iPod fund is holding strong at $168 and change (Amazon takes 3%, which is why the number is weird.) That is an awesome result for only six days. Thank you, thank you, thank you. See how I'm updating all the time to show my gratitude?
