my favorite candy bar...

PAYDAY!

the salty peanut and caramelly goodness.
drool

BUT

regular sized is the way to go.

king sized... larger
in theory better (of course)
but the peanut to caramel.... NOT THE SAME!

thankful thursday...

this may sound stupid.

but,

here it is....


i am thankful for my iphone.

yes.

my phone.

why??

because it allows me to have a half decent camera nearby at almost any given time and i can capture pictures of hugo that i would almost always miss if i had to scramble for my actual camera.

just a thought...

I find that there is a pretty large double standard when it comes to fat vs skinny.

would you walk up to someone you haven't seen for a while and blurt out

"OMG you've gotten so fat... what happened?"

probably not.
well maybe if you're a big jerk.
but most people would not be so bold.
you know you're thinking it... but that is with the "inside voice"
saying it to their face?
that is generally frowned upon.

why is it ok to do the exact same thing to someone who is skinny?

I don't get out a lot.
I am home with hugo most nights so there are a lot of people that I haven't seen a lot the past couple years.

I randomly run into people here and there.
first thing out of their mouths more often than not....
"OMG you've gotten skinny.... what happened?"
followed by...
OMG your hair is so long.

literally word for word.

the bitch in me longs to say "thank you. I didn't notice"
generally I refrain. occasionally I have replied in that fashion... oops

come on.
if I had gained weight nobody would say anything...
why does a person's weight/size have to be the first thing you notice??

I generally want to know how things have been for a person I haven't seen for a while... not what size pants they're wearing.

am I crazy for this?


thoughts?
does anyone else have this happen to them?

ME monday.... my new feature.

in an effort to get back into this blogging thing...

every Monday I will be posting something random about myself that you might or might not know.

today is my first one.


drum roll please...........................................

ok enough drum roll

random Amanda fact of the day is.....

packets of gum that are the pop out foil ones.... I need to make a checkerboard. the gum must be taken out in the right pattern!

I don't know why... but it must.

I actually don't buy gum that comes in those packets very often because someone (Fernando) likes to mess them up.
then I end up giving him the package of gum because it is wrecked.
and I have no gum.

bummer.

so I get the wrapped ones.
or mints.

problem solved
