Cotton Candy Cheer

From this last weekend’s annual Seattle Street Food Festival, I love the cotton candy faces!

I think cotton candy is joyful yet surreal. You enjoy it, then the stick leaves a weird residue on your fingers and lips that dissolves back into the dream that created it.  Did you know sugar is the only ingredient in cotton candy, and it’s fat-free? Not much has changed about it since it was invented In 1904, by two Nashville candy makers introduced at the St. Louis World’s Fair.

Here are other treats at this festival I wanted to savor, but too full from excessing on mac and cheese with bubble tea.  I will perhaps go for these at the next Street Food Festival…

My 33 cents of V-Day Love

Seriously, 33 cents worth of today candy all right here. Ugh, what a terrible effort.

Valentine’s Day is nearly over. I hope many of you made it special. I sadly, did not. But to make up for that, I leave a quote that should last longer than this one day..by Abraham Lincoln, inspired by Bill S. Esquire, and Ted “Theodore” Logan; bringing forward the connection we should share…

“Be excellent to each other.”

Picture of Today 2/14/2017, Valentine’s Day

Another Valentine’s Day,

Where many express happiness unto special others in the form of colorful cards, sugary candy, manufactured flowers, that special phone call, or some silly social network update. 

For others, perhaps it’s another day..Singles Awareness Day, Super Taco Tuesday, actor Simon Pegg’s Birthday, astronomer Galileo Galilei’s Birthday, Simpsons creator Matt Groening Birthday, somebody else’s Birthday… whatever, everyday holds something special, significant for someone.

Just enjoy the day as you let it happen, for whatever it gives you.
