Don't give up until your satisfied.

I still think that the fact that our college was having a candy corn counting contest, something an elementary school would do, says it all. That pot needed a good stirring & you tried to do it! So, I say bravo to you! I def would have left that place if I didn't become friends with you.


I think I am obsessed with you and this blog. =)

You have inspired me to write even more on mine. Crazy how similarly you and I think about certain things.

I just snarfed reading about the corns! I hope Lynn is reading, because she will crack up too!
And what do you mean, the Spice Girls WERE huge? Aren't they still, or is that just on my iPod?


Mandy...GREAT blog....and im glad i made an appearance in it! I was oh so shy doing that Madonna thing with you. You were singing and moving around. I think i just stood there and looked stupid! I had a rough time in school too. I wasnt the cutest kid whatsoever and got teased quite a bit. so I "get it".

By the way..you have inspired me to make a list. Thanks so much!

Todays Blog makes me want to find a few grown-up children and......tell them "I know your Mother"! Thank you for this Blog. It has got to be hard to write. It is a beautiful sharing but also a humorous escape.I have laughed more over this than anything I can recall. Please keep it coming.


Ok that was hilarious. It took me a while to read the whole thing since I had to stop and clean up the ice tea that I snarfed all over the place from laughing! (Note to self no beverages while reading your blog!) I know you are my sister and people expect me to say you are good (but keep in mind I never do anything I am expected to do.) You are truely gifted! One thing though please change your list from 5, to 7 to 10 Blog posts a week. I am addicted Love you.


You should have put candy corn in that biatches gas tank:)
