Happy February 15th!

Yes, a happy February 15th to all!

That's right, it's one of the most hallowed candy days of the year. The day upon which all stores mark down their Valentines Day candy leftovers at an exponential rate until they're gone from the shelves. I already did a run to CVS and picked up a disgustingly enormous haul of chocolate booty.

Go now, if you like candy! Go! Get yourself some York Peppermint Patties at 70% off while you still can!

In case anyone is wondering, the other important candy day of the year is the Monday after Easter (which is early this year). With only a segment of the population buying Easter candy, there is usually a lot of leftovers the next week.

And no, the day after Halloween does not count because everyone tends to buy out candy on Halloween night and whatever is left the next day is generally worthless.


I really need to start posting about real stuff, but aside from the Lebanon bombing, there are no real current events I even think about discussing. Drudge thinks Chris Rock shouldn't host the Oscars and conservatives are calling Million Dollar Baby a communist (or fascist, depending on who you listen to) film. Like I said, not much out there recently.

Thus the postings on bathrooms and candy...
