I have decided to be lazy and not exercise today. Whoo hoo sunshine and books + deck chair. For those of you that are history buffs, set your TiVos/DVRs for PBS's 7 part series (By Ken Burns) called: THE WAR, starting Sept. 23 at 8pm ET. It has the Walkter Kronkite stamp of approval. (WWII) And thanks to those that responded to my poll yesterday. I feel confident with the answers given, thank you!

I fooled around with my MySpace profile (because I couldn't care less about MySpace - such a wonky/unwieldy site) and am getting all sorts of pervs requesting to be my friend now. I'm hoping some of my former high school classmates stumble across it - they're all mostly right-wing conservative Christians. It's the little things in life that amuse me.

Like this video, parodying the INSANE FAN of Britney Spears that admonished the world at large to leave Britney alone! I laughed and laughed at this.



In conclusion, Harper's Index informed me this month that it takes 3 kernels of corn to make the corn syrup in one kernel of candy corn. And the ratio of the number of calories in a candy-corn kernel to the number in a real corn kernel is 8:1. Holy Shiite! No wonder I can't stand candy corn.

Okay, now my mascara is running, and I'm not even wearing any. Have you seen Seth Green's parody? LEAVE CHRIS CROCKER ALONE! ::weeps::

AHAHAHAHAHAHA. I love his plug and the random reapplication of liner under his eyes, HEEEEEEEEE.

(And the original is just... so weird. And sad. O_O)

I lurv candy corn. I only eat it at Halloween but I can go through a pound of that crap.

Do you? It's so flavorless to me... When I was a kid I ate it by the metric ton. And I'd have to eat each color layer individually, too.

I'm weird about candy, though. Smarties, Sprees, and anything chocolatey, and that's about it. Oh, and Conversation Hearts. Mmmm.

I am sooooo behind on lj! you have pictures I have not seen! and stuff about movies!

that video was funny enough that I actually watched it at work (I rarely vid, and even more rarely at work), because homg!

Also, I think Britney was on some sort of drug/medication because the corset thing she was supposed to wear? Much hotter. I am firmly in the show-little, tantalize-lots camp. Also, drugs. Oh, brits.

I knew you weren't into Buffyverse anymore, but I was pretty shocked to not have seen you around for the NB pics! (They're tagged BotH if you just wanna peek. *g*)

I feel badly for Britney - I couldn't watch the clips of her screwing up. ACK. Such a sad sack. I didn't know about the corset thingy! She's just... She needs people to force her into some SENSE, omg.

Wow. That was incredibly funny, though I still think Seth Green's is better.

Either way, the original video? Dude is off his rockers. Did you see the one he did where he says if anything happens to Britney, he'll jump off a building? CRAZAY.

The world needs lunatics like this to make us feel good about ourselves! No. Really.

Candy corn went right in the trash at Hallowe'en. Even my little brother wouldn't eat it and he lived for Topp's Bubblegum. Ick cubed.

I completely agree. Dennis Miller is no longer a comedian I admire, but back when he was funny, he said something along the lines of: I like stupid people, because it makes me, in comparison, appear so much smarter. HEEEE.

Topp's Bubblegum!! That IMMEDIATELY lost flavor once you had it all chewed. And wasn't it coated in chalk or something? Blech.

Candy Corn should be illegal, no doubt: gross and flavorless and entirely addictive in its icky heroin-ish way. I hada dietician suggest it as pocket calories (one of the less fun parts of diabetes is having sudden drastic low blood glucose episodes; my dentist has vetoed hard candy). I could carry an ounce of it in my little tin for months but if I ate four of them WHAM I wanted it all, all I tell you!

Bad stuff, no doubt about it.

The diatician and I have since decided that peanut M&Ms are better.

Julia, damned reality, takes the fun out of everything

PEANUT M&Ms. Yes, ma'am, that's the candy I looooooove. Mmmm. Have you had the dark chocolate M&Ms? Those are mighty fine, too, but the peanut ones stand as my absolute favorite.

I imagine someone in comments has already linked to the *awesome* Seth Green parody of Chris Crocker's speech, so I won't.

Hi! That's why I like my candy corn made with honey. *beams*

Sep. 18th, 2007 07:18 pm (UTC)
They have! (I have to say, that I think I like this one more as a parody, though. The Seth Green one has some pretty funny stuff as a plug for his show. Him pausing to put on eyeliner = AWESOME.)

They make candy corn with honey?!? I've never heard of such a thing! Does it taste like Bit-o-Honey, which I actually enjoy on rare occasions? (I have that whole "if it's not chocolate, I don't see the point" thing about candy. What's my deal??)

I somehow managed to make it till yesterday without hearing about the psycho Britney fan, so by the time I was told to "just search youtube for 'leave Britney alone' - he's everywhere!" it took me awhile to find the original through all the responses and parodies. That's a good one (the sheet absolutely sells it - what is the DEAL with the sheet in the original??), but Seth Green's is my favorite.

I also saw a segment from Jimmy Kimmel in which he did a webcam interview with the guy, and he was wearing a bra that he kept hiking up until it was around chin level, and claimed that he has a lot in common with Britney - they're both beautiful women. I have trouble believing he's real.

It's just bizarre, right? And I've been around weird fans enough to think he could be for real, and that he could be a FABULOUS fake. He says on his profile that he's a giver of edutainment. o_0

I picked up some microwave popcorn in the supermarket to have a look at it and clutched my heart and fell over when I saw how much fat and calories were in it - how does something that's relatively healthy junkfood get turned into popped lard with a crunch?? Which is why I just buy the normal popcorn and then deep fry it.

No wonder hardly anyone in the first world has pants that fit any more. (I wear a duvet with a whole cut in it for my head)

I like to wrap each popcorn piece in bacon (with a little wedge of cheese tucked in, batter it, deep fry it, and serve it with a hollandaise sauce. Mmmm. Very satisfying, and the hospital knows me by first name in the cardiac ward.

I just don't eat a lot of pre-packaged foods of any sort, candy, too. It's just... Hmmm. I'd rather have cake. MADE OF KITTENS. With hollandaise sauce.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
