I'm in a bit of a tizzy. I realized this morning that Halloween is Saturday. Saturday!! It slipped my mind now that my kids aren't going out this year *sniff*. I haven't had to worry about costumes, and I gave up on carving pumpkins a long time ago--the kids were never into it and I was the one with my arm, elbow deep, inside the pumpkin scooping out the sticky guts.

But I digress.

I'm in a tizzy because I haven't gotten the candy yet! You know what this means. It means that all the good stuff will be gone. I'll be stuck with Dots and taffy and those weird eyeball chocolates that taste like cocoa cardboard. There's not bound to be any Snickers or Almond Joys or Reece's Cups left--the good stuff goes fast. Especially around here where I'm pretty sure the kids outnumber the adults. Or at least it seems that way. We always need 5-6 bags of candy. And if there are leftovers, all the better! Usually.

I'm not that big a fan of Dots.


PS: The Deadly Diva fan page is up and running. Come on by and become a fan!


  1. yup. dots are the worst. the. worst.

  2. Peeps are worse. I know they aren't out until Easter, but I dread Peeps. I have a recurring nightmare where a Peep is chasing me.

  3. I'm really wondering if anyone likes Dots. I'll be glad to donate any leftovers!

    Aryn, I'm sure Halloween peeps are next! I'm not a fan, either, but I have to admit I'm amused by the Peep pictures that circulate around Easter.

    Dru, I hope you're not having nightmares, too!

  4. Couldn't your husband come throught in the clutch, for once, and pick up some Butterfingers?

  5. I'm sure the County Market in Dixon IL is a little far for you to travel for Halloween candy, but believe me, we still have PLENTY of the good stuff.

  6. Shel, LOL, a bit far. I'm heading to Target today and hope they still have something decent left.
