Key Lime Pie in a Cup

That’s what Sonic’s Limeade Chiller tastes like…a fact I discovered today when I used the $.99 cent coupon I signed up for on this site.  Regular price is over $2.

What a delicious treat though!  It tasted exactly like my friend’s Key Lime Pie!

I received my coupon via my inbox within minutes.

Be aware that you have to use it within four days of receipt.  The date is printed on the coupon.

Just thought I’d share…

Sock Addiction

A few days ago I needed to move my dresser.  I was doing a tiny bit of rearranging, but nobody was home to help me.  So, I removed the drawers to make it lighter.

While doing so, I caught sight of my sock drawer.

Folks, I think I have a problem.

I’m addicted to socks.

And not just ordinary socks but hand-knit ones.

There are 11 pairs in the picture above.  Not pictured is the pair I made for Chicky’s teammate, and the pair that Molly chewed up.  That takes the total to 13.

Last night, I cast of sock #1 of my 14th pair.

Does a person really need so many pairs of socks?  Why continue to buy sock yarn?

Non-yarnies don’t understand the trance that comes over a fiber artist when entering a yarn store.  Everyone has a favorite brand, weight, or fiber.  Some are drawn by a particular color.  My friend, Rabbitrescuer, loves green, and her stash on Ravelry reflects that.

For me, it’s sock yarn.  It beckons me like a siren.  The yarn lures me with its beautiful colors and promises of smooshiness.  The soft textures soothe my nerves and invoke a feeling of safety.

Wearing hand-knit socks is an indulgence, I’ll admit.  To have a pair of socks tailored specifically to my long feet is simply divine.  The fun patterns become centerpieces for interesting conversations with coworkers, friends, and even complete strangers.

I considered taking a picture of the sock yarn in my stash, but the Mr. recently started reading my blog, and I fear that he would not be too happy to see all of my stash in one place.  In his case, ignorance is bliss.

Now, don’t be thinking that I need intervention, because I won’t go.  This is not an addiction I want to be cured off.  Once you knit your first pair, you’re hooked.  It’s fairly harmless, cheaper than cigarettes, and serves a purpose.

Look out needles…here I come.  I’m casting on sock #2 of my newest and wildest pair.

Stay tuned!

Free Candy Bar Anyone?

Fridays are Free Candy Bar Days!!  Who doesn’t like that?!

I’m posting this on Thursday just so you can prepare yourself.

The Mars company is giving away free candy bars to the first 250,000 people to visit their site each Friday between 9am and 11pm EST.  You will be asked to enter your birth date (to ensure eligibility).  Fill out the information, and within a few days, you’ll receive an email confirmation.  Your coupon will arrive four to six weeks later.

The fun part…besides free candy?  You can do this up to five times, if I remember correctly.
