Good morning everyone,
Lets start today off by giving thanks for the positive influences in our lives. Perhaps, we should also spend some time praying for those around us that have negative items in their lives. I am sure that we will ALL be remembered in someone's prayers.
The work week was rather busy. My regular job (as many of you know) is very hectic. I love that it is not the type of work that goes home with you. I also like the pace of the work. Next week the Amway...I mean trainers for the new system will be there. I am not looking forward to listening to the new people spew forth a canned rhetoric about how "good" their particular brand of Amway, I mean software, is.
Lets reflect on the past week. Damn, how things can change so quickly. Since this is directed at those of you "in the know" then you already know. Sorry to those that don't, but you should keep in closer contact. Guess everyone will just have to wait and see.
Bill..How about this wednesday or next? I bet you can make it out and the wine stock at Frankie D's needs to be drank down a little. Expensuve but well worth it. Just give me a yell.
Adam and Stephanie...we gotta get together and do some Sangria while we still have a DD...
Travis...dude lets kill something and grill it...Maybe on the 19th. That is the only mention of that I am going to make....everybody....please stayed tuned for a HUGE update.
I am so ready for some warm weather. I think I am going to sneak off to NC when the tuna run. Anybody else interested in trying to catch one of those 600lbs MONSTERS? And yes, I am still tallking about fish. Let me know and we will try to charter a boat.
Ginger...this one is for you...
Theory of M&M Evolution
Whenever I get a package of plain M&Ms, I make it my duty to continue the strength and robustness of the candy as a species.
To this end, I hold M&M duels.
Taking two candies between my thumb and forefinger,I apply pressure, squeezing them together until one of them cracks and splinters. That is the "loser," and I eat the inferior one immediately. The winner gets to go another round.
I have found that, in general, the brown and red M&Ms are tougher, and the newer blue ones are genetically inferior. I have hypothesized that the blue M&Ms as a race cannot survive long in the intense theatre of competition that is the modern candy and snack-food world.
Occasionally I will get a mutation, a candy that is misshapen, or pointier, or flatter than the rest. Almost invariably this proves to be a weakness, but on very rare occasions it gives the candy extra strength. In this way, the species continues to adapt to its environment.
When I reach the end of the pack, I am left with one M&M, the strongest of the herd. Since it would make no sense to eat this one as well, I pack it neatly in an envelope and send it to: M&M Mars, A Division of Mars, Inc. Hackettstown, NJ 17840-1503 U.S.A., along with a 3x5 card reading, "Please use this M&M for breeding purposes."
Wel...until the next time...please remember that I have to pay the bills.
