Waste of Time day

I really should be at work. However the ole' tum-tum is still a bit rum-a-tum-tumbily. and as the old rhyme goes, 'Here I sit...'

Anywho two things have really been bothering me.
1) Somehow the school suckered us into trying to sell almost 200 candy bars for girl.imp's first grade class. I am not certain, but I think we are moving up on the deadline and are still on the hook for over $80. However Last night I managed to take a little back from the 'Man'. I sold 3 candy bars to the school librarian! (wife.imp was a little less than supportive as Librarian planned to use the candy to tempt opposing teams into breaking from their diets this allowing her team to win whatever it is they will win.)

2) I am totally not on board with the Stones v. Beatles arugment. Don't get me wrong, I like the British Bands! I love the likes of Gerry and the Pacemakers, Herman's Hermits and the Animals! However if pressed to pick between the Stones or the Beatles, I will have to go with The Who! Yes, The Who. These 'boys' rocked!

Give me a new Who album and consider it purchased sight unseen! And the best song by a British Band in the prior century?

'Under Pressure' by Queen.

Wait what kind of candy? Cause I would totally buy some...
I used to have to sell World's Finest when I was in school and I made the mistake of trying one. My mother ended up having to buy me like ten of them. I feel bad now thinking about it, because Karma is going to kick my ass when it comes to Little Man having to sell candy...

Ah, my favorite band of ALL time is...QUEEN. And now I suddenly find myself wanting candy.

Ooops, blogger is doing that weird thing about not wanting to let me comment again. I am having to sign in as "other". Other what????

Diana: as a picture is worth 'a thousand words' I will be posting photos of the chocolate bars later tonight or tomorrow.

rebecca: Queen rocks! I am on the non-beta version of Blogger. apologies but I have no simple solutions for you. However from now I will always know you as my 'other'! :)

Ahhh, it's that time of the year already? I'd buy some candies from you but wait, I have my own to sell. Ugh!!

Love love Queen! But I've been singing this song all this week "just like heaven" by the Cure.

I always get the WHO and the Guess Who mixed up , but I like both the bands. huh? But definately the Beatles over the Stones, one girls opinion.

waya: I cannot say that I have heard the Cure but knowing how bad I am on bands from the 90s on, I cannot say that I have not heard the Cure.

I'll swap you candy purchases! :)

Carla: I used to...No, I never did get them confused but You have to admit both bands are good! and technically you have a British connection with both bands as The Guess Who is Canadian and don't they still pay homage to the same royalty as the United Kingdom?
