Question of the Day:
How do you pack Pez dispensers?
I am trying to figure out the best way to pack roughly 100 or so dispensers because I am moving, although loading them with candy can be tough, too! I always manage to drop the little buggers everywhere and end up having to load them one at a time.

12:17p - Oh yeah, almost forgot
Last night as I was falling asleep, I was startled awake by the sound of airplanes. I looked out the window and counted 3 overhead. The sound continued for quite some time, fading in and out. So, I'm assuming more were flying overhead...
I wonder if it was passenger jets or military jets?
Anyhow, I finally fell asleep, but was woken ever 2-4 hours by nightmares. Very unpleasant.
Okay, back to cleaning etc...!

A few days ago, Erika sent me a "grease gram" which was a postcard with a packet of vegemite attatched. It somehow made it to the states intact (much to our amazement) and I got my first taste of this Australian sensation. I spread it on toast according to scottfreeman's instructions and here is my opinion:
safire: so youwant some more vegemite?
puppysmuggler: I decided it was like ancient olives dipped in very salty alcoholic chocolate.
puppysmuggler: and mashed around and left for a week
jurnee78: they should call it "vagamite"
puppysmuggler: no, they should call it butt gravy.
puppysmuggler: that's what it is.
jurnee78: i agree
puppysmuggler: but I'm glad you sent it, that was a real hoot!
jurnee78: i can see the headlines "War breaks out in America. Supportive Australians send thousands of pounds of vegemite to support the people. Americans respond and drop vegemite on Afghanistan"
current mood: silly
