Valentine's Day Quote

With V-Day just around the corner, I thought I'd lend you a starting hand with the most romantic line I've heard in a very long time.

In an attempt to coax Meddlesome to hang out a little longer, the smoothest line you'll ever hear from a 3-year old boy emerged:

"You're my chocolate milk and I'm gonna drink you up!"

Happy Birthday to Tall Girl!

If you were here, I'd treat you to kona pie at Islands. Oh well, here's a pic instead.

All-Time Festivus Grievance: Crazy Craisins

I got a grievance to air. How in the world are Craisins still on the market? 2008 marks the 15th anniversary of these little boogers. Let's back it up. Or as George Costanza would do, picture George's palms beckoning you towards him as he goes "beep...beep" I was the first person in line, prepared to sing from the rooftops about this amazing hybrid invention. I like cranberries. I like raisins. Ergo, no doubt I would LOVE craisins!

So imagine my dismay when I find out they are none other than freakin' dried cranberries!!! As a marketer, I should praise them for their ingenious way of duping consumers to pay double the price for a product that is as old as Thanksgiving. However this is one of those times when being a marketer and a civilian are in conflict. I am so offended by Craisins that I might have to start a boycott petition.


Fro Yo and W suggested I share my Craisin gripe with the blogging community, so I dedicate this gripey post to them.
