An Ode to Snailie-po and other things.

Why it is our bodies decide to surrender to illness at just the wrong point in time. I have either managed to contract a stomach virus or poison myself. Since I’m an above average cook and I’m surrounded 5 of 7 days by 120 dirty, germy little teenagers (and that's just in my classroom), I’m betting on the former. So I’m home all alone and no one to baby me (which the SO is very good at by the way).

I haven’t eaten all day and the idea of food is revolting. I must be very sick. No really, there is a package of Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs on the kitchen counter unopened. I’m not a chocolate fan, actually don’t much like it. Can’t stand the smell of it. But Reese’s Eggs are my equivalent of Amarinda’s Tim Tams. They are proof God loves us and wants us to be happy. If they had no calories it would be better proof. I’m just saying…



And finally, I must say a sad farewell today to one of our pets. Actually, I think it died a couple of days ago but with snails who knows. So goodbye to Snailie-po. (Named of course by the Children’s Librarian.) He was a good bottom dweller and a fine example to all snails everywhere. He was fascinating to watch, especially when he played the dropping game. He did too! He played! Snailie-po would crawl up the side of the aquarium until he reached the water’s edge. Then he’d let go and drop to the bottom. I imagin him giggling madly as he drifted down to the blue gravel below.

Snailie-po is survived by three neon tetras that will certainly miss having someone to clean up the place.

Peanut butter eggs? How pukeable

Pukeable? Never. They are like big thick Reese's cups. *sigh* Still feeling too sick to eat them. Unfortunately I'm not too sick to go to work.

AJ doesn't understand Peanut butter. S'okay, It's not like we would ever eat chocolate covered vegemite. ew.

Bye Snailie-po.

By the way, Jae, did you know there is a blogger warning when I try to visit this site? Yup, it tells me the content may be objectionable and do I wish to consider. In light of today's topic, I couldn't help but cackle.

Yeah...I got the same message!

Bye bye, Snailie-Poo...

And I'm with you, Jae...I could live off of Reecee Eggs...or even Reecee Cups in general!

Peanut butter and chocolate...what a horrible way to treat chocolate

Glad your feeling a bit better. The stomach bug is running rampant in Baltimore. So far, I have not had it, but the house hunk did.

Farewell, Snailie-Poo.

Peanut butter eggs rock!

Poor Snailie-po.

I hope your stomach feels better soon.

The only thing better than Reece's Eggs are the limited edition ones dipped in dark chocolate...yummmmmmmm
