Dear Cap'n Crunch

I have never really liked you - you cut up my mouth and you leave this nasty sugar film on top of the milk. However, you found the one thing that would make me CONSIDER consuming you. Driving to work today, I passed a Carl's Jr. and saw you have become a featured shake at that fine fast food restaurant (if you followed the link, click on desserts and the Cap's Crunch shake is top of the list).

Truth - the thought of you blended in with ice cream topped with whipped cream makes my mouth water a little, but you don't fool me. Partnering with my one guilty pleasure - the one thing I usually never refuse - ice cream. Bravo on the marketing tactic. Cap'n Crunch + Ice Cream = No brainer (aka marketing success, right?)

Sneaky. Sneaky. But I see right through you. I'm suspicious that you will still manage to cut up my mouth with the cereal bits that are sure to be left unblended in the shake.

Nice try.

But I still think you are one of the most vile cereals on the market.

Dear Sunshine

I love feeling you on my face, arms and legs as I sit next to a pool in St. George. I love tan lines. I wish the sun could shine all year round. I've realized (for the 100th time over I'm sure) that I need to end up in a place that is warm (60+ degrees) at least 9 months out of the year - meaning California (I also would prefer to be by the beach because I know AZ fits the temperature quota, but being land locked doesn't really appeal to me).

Sunshine + beach + tan lines = happiness.
