• A Hopeful Hand

    So, today is apparently “Write HOPE on your hands for diabetes” day.  And, I evidently didn’t get that memo.  Didn’t know a thing about it until I started seeing photos of hopeful hands posted on the Facebook pages of several friends.  And I was a bit annoyed that I didn’t see them before I got to work this afternoon.  Where I had no markers, etc… with which to jazz up my hand for the occasion. Despite the late notice and being stuck in the office, I found a way to participate.  The blue HOPE bracelet that my friends Alexis and Justice sent me just happened to be in my laptop bag, and I always have my cellphone in my pocket. …

  • A Naughty Bite of Happiness

    Sometimes in life, happiness comes in small, naughty bites….  In unexpected places….  Now, I know what you’re thinking.  This post isn’t about that kind of naughty bite, so I’ll give you a minute to get your mind out of the gutter. This post is about these sinfully delicious, bite-sized red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and little heart shaped sprinkles.  And where, pray-tell did I find these naughty bites of happiness?  At work!   🙂 This nice little treat was completely unexpected and it has made a dreary night at work just a little bit brighter. And believe me, they are every bit as delicious as they appear. Being naughty never tasted so good.  😉

  • I Want a Heart & Pancreas for Christmas

    So I was driving around town today in the rental car I have while my car is in the shop, and the song “I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” came on the radio.  And given my knack for parodies, I couldn’t help but play with the words.  And so, I came up with the following little diddy.  Enjoy! I Want A Heart and Pancreas for Christmas I want a heart and pancreas for Christmas Only a heart and pancreas will do Don’t want a pill, to make me a happy boy I want a heart and pancreas that’ll work and not annoy.
