Life is Good...

The sun is shining, I got flowers delivered to me at work yesterday, and to top it all off, the parking ticket lady is not around today, so I've been in 2 hour parking ALL DAY LONG.

...I don't need much.

I Think...

Passive aggressive behavior irritates the hell out of me.
That is all.

Serial Killers and Floral Wallpaper, Part 1

Welcome to Mind Candy! It’s taken me a while, but here I am.
First of all, let's discuss two of my favorite things: home furnishings, and the human psyche. Household textiles (wallpaper, sheets, curtains, plates, etc) I believe are the key to one's psyche. All you have to do is look around somebody's home and see what goes on inside their minds. Example: Playboy and pin up girl sheets, versus Better Homes & Gardens and floral wallpaper. Which do you think belongs to a serial killer? You're wrong. It's the floral wallpaper!
I have a theory on this. We have a budding serial killer in our midst here at my office. While he may not have victimized any living, breathing things, he is viciously wreaking havoc on our keyboards. Sometimes, late at night when nobody is around, this person stalks the aisles of the office, preying upon our office equipment. Specifically, he assaults them with thick coatings of lotion. (Obviously the culprit is a male, no woman would disrespect cosmetics in such a manner. Ladies, am I right?)
This went on for months without a single suspect being named, although speculations were made. Wanted posters were hung. People stopped trusting each other.
It was hard to figure out at first, because seriously… who does that? The weird thing was, the only people anybody can remember being around during the time that it had to have happened were the cleaning crew, and this one dude that works nights. But it wasn’t the cleaning crew. And the dude that works nights was this VERY nice, wholesome, innocent, churchy guy. Somebody who would never hurt a fly, much less a keyboard. Or… would he?
Stay tuned...

Grandma In Law?

"Well behaved women rarely make history." ~ Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

I'm not really sure how to title this amazing woman. She is my husband's grandmother, and she is phenomenal! This adorable gramma is a true tribute to the quote above. She is fun, adventurous, and always lets you know what is on her mind. I am so very lucky to allow myself to now say that I'm related to her.

Shameless MommyBlogging

So, I know everyone is tired of hearing about the mommybloggers and their broods, but I just can't help myself.
Isn't she cute?

If All Else Fails...

I can't remember where I got this, but I think it is a pretty excellent Plan B...

Things I Like

It seems like today is turning out to be one of those days... You know the kind, coffee maker overflows, you're ten minutes late to work, and fifty people are looking for you by the time you get in. None of them have good news.
Days like this make me want to not be very nice. That doesn't seem very "candy" like, so I'm taking a moment to remind myself about some things that make me smile. Take a look at the list, and feel free to add on via the comments section, I'd love to know what makes you smile!

  • Puppies - a special shout out to Rowdy here!
  • Good coffee
  • Sunshine
  • Spring
  • Pedicures
  • Seeing your arch nemesis make an ass out of themselves at work (hey, the bitch has to come out somewhere, right?)
  • Cupcakes
  • My dog greeting me when I get home after a long day
  • Vodka the hot tub ... on a clear night
  • Tropical Beaches
  • Great Friends
Alright, I could go on and on. Let us know what makes you smile & maybe we'll all make it home tonight without the road rage!


Well, here goes! A few friends from all over Colorado decided that they needed a good place to get it all out, from there, Mind Candy was born. We hope to be able to entertain you with our musings, but if we don't, who cares? This is OUR therapy, not yours!
Please feel free to drop by, read a few posts, comment, whatever -hopefully there will be something worth reading soon!
