Howdy!!!
And yes, it's been forever since I last posted. I wanted to remedy that, so here I am!
I'm here to talk about candy. And, well, also some art stuff, but let's talk candy first...
I was in the local Cali, 99 cents store, and man was there the 'Cheapo-Candy-Mutherlode'.
Outside of their basic giant pixie sticks(gag!), and so many bags of hard, chewy and more sugary that choco candy, there were many a Valentine and Easter candy choice.
As if you couldn't get enough candy during V-day, with choco roses, candy messege hearts, and anything sugary you can cram in a heart-shaped box-but here comes the massive pile of Easter candy, hippiting and hoppiting onto your tastebuds!
It never dawned on me, but the start of the year packs children full of sugar-in so many shapes and forms and flavors. I like sweets, though, not as much as I used to. I can recall when I was a kid, to get sugar, I would settle on some of the yuckiest sweets around.
I remember Easter baskets with Russel Stover brand coconut confection nests, with icing adhered jelly-bean-eggs in the centers. Actually, I didn't like those even then, but somebody has got to someplace. Yarg.
Here's to keeping far away from the scary stuff, and hoping smart kids will do the same.

In other news, been still doing my regular arty stuff, and usual commissions. Most of my work has been mixed media, as I tend to crave results in as little time as possible. Just gotta get my ideas out of my head and onto paper as soon as I can.

Also, did you know that each year for oh, let's say, three years now, a certain someone on LJ has been giving me a single rose on V-day? I still don't know who it is, or if they will show this year, but I suppose this year, we shall see if they strike again!

Oh, and I was thinking of making an online group(maybe here, maybe elsewhere, not sure), for "Cartoon Food Enthusiasts". Personally, seeing little illustrations of adorable tacos and hamburgers on signs and whatnot are so endearing. I wonder if maybe others feel as I do, and secretly enjoy them.(pondering)
Anyhoo, here's to Feb, and Happy Lent!
