Interesting things from the Wilderness.

Fall has crept up on me this year and I wasn't prepared for the fall beauty this weekend in the Wilderness. The leaves are just turning, the soybeans are drying and the sky is so blue and sunny. Augh. I love love love Wisconsin.

Some quotes from the weekend:

"Never trust anyone who says their favorite Jolly Rancher is peach." ~ Page's partner Andrew (who's last name I still can't remember!)

"I'm so STOOKED about my new Transformer!" ~ Isaac, after purchasing the Star Wars Clone Pilot Starfighter Transformer. "Don't you mean STOKED?" I asked. "Nope, I made it into a new word, and I call it STOOKED."

"I'll be the water wings than save you if you start drowning in an open tab, when your judgment's on the brink." ~ The Postal Service, Give Up, Brand New Colony.

Water wings. Awesome.

Also, I learned both what this thing called "bluetooth" is and I also learned how to do it on my phone.

And I got to take a nap in the soft chair by the sunny window with two wonderful dogs in my lap.

This week is a doozy. Prepare for sporadic postings. Here's a reader poll to entertain you:

What is your favorite Jolly Rancher flavor and why? What is your least favorite JR flavor? Have you ever pulled out a filling while eating a JR? (I have. It's awesome.)

My fav is green apple, I like 'em sour. Least fav is grape- too sugary. The sugar-free ones aren't bad either. But I don't get the pulling out a filling- you don't chew them, do you? They're really meant to be savored until they're just a sliver that cuts your tongue open...SunnyD

My fave are the green apple ones, too! And yes, I'm so impatient that I bite them. I also bite gobstoppers and have broken a tooth on those. It's bad and I should not be allowed to eat hard candy.

I agree. I bite all candy too. Even Altoids (they make my tongue tingle). Even pop rocks. I'm a compulsive biter.

My favs are watermelon. I don't know if I've ever tried peach.

Sorry we couldn't get together this weekend! I understand though; I've got the same cold and it's killing me. Tell ISaac to get better soon and I'll let you know when I'll be int he area- should be soon. Unfortunately, it will probably be on a weekday- is it possible tohna gout in the early evening of a weekday?

Katie said...

Totally possible! Just let me know in advance so I can make sure I'm not cramming at the last minute or something.

Not a big fan of Jolly Ranchers... if I had to eat one, it'd probably be grape, but I'd rather not. I remember back in high school though, we used to always put them in Zima. Ahhh the good ole days.
