Drizzles of Sunshine

I can't believe it's the end of March! Who is  jiggling the sand in our hourglass and making time fly? This month I wanted to share some things that made me smile. Too many things these days make you feel so depressed. I turn on the news and all I hear are tragic stories. My heart just crumbles into a million trillion pieces. Guys, what the hell is wrong with this world? So, I want to start posting some of the good things I find in hopes of making you smile just one more time today.

-Mario Kart Love Song...I die. It cracks me up and melts my heart at the same time. It replaces The Wedding Singer's airplane scene song as the silliest love song.

- Reese's Eggs  Reese's can make their candy in the shape of *enter inappropriate shape here* and I'd still devour every piece, of the whole bag, in one sitting, and be proud of myself.
- All of my middle schoolers, except for one, think that manners are very important. We had a long discussion in class this week about what things we see people doing in public that are just plain rude and rest assured that our youth does in fact, know the difference between right and wrong. It seems the consensus in my class and the topic that came up most was that hitting people with a car was wrong. Good to know.
-The Humor Tab on Pinterest  Oh man, whenever I feel down, I scroll through hundreds of clever memes, unfortunate pictures of painfully awkward people, and sarcastic cats saying exactly what is on my mind.

-Reviews. Particularly hilarious ones.  These are real and that means there are people out there with an awesome sense of humor.

A review for a banana slicer:
Review from Amazon  I'm not lying. Here's the link to prove it.

5.0 out of 5 stars No more winning for you, Mr. Banana! March 3, 2011


For decades I have been trying to come up with an ideal way to slice a banana. "Use a knife!" they say. Well...my parole officer won't allow me to be around knives. "Shoot it with a gun!" Background check...HELLO! I had to resort to carefully attempt to slice those bananas with my bare hands. 99.9% of the time, I would get so frustrated that I just ended up squishing the fruit in my hands and throwing it against the wall in anger. Then, after a fit of banana-induced rage, my parole officer introduced me to this kitchen marvel and my life was changed. No longer consumed by seething anger and animosity towards thick-skinned yellow fruit, I was able to concentrate on my love of theatre and am writing a musical play about two lovers from rival gangs that just try to make it in the world. I think I'll call it South Side Story.
A review for a recipe for ice:
Review from Food.com Here's the link.

 This recipe is horrible! Maybe I should have left them in longer than two minutes (the recipe doesn't say how long to leave them in the freezer so I just kind of guessed) but mine came out all watery. I won't be making these again

Hope you smiled at least once. If not, just remember that it's Friday! Happy Easter!
