God's Own Whoppers

I've decided it's probably not a good idea to get into the habit of snacking while reading. A couple of weeks ago it was a packet of Gummi Bears here, a mouse-sized box of raisins there. Last week I hit the trail mix and tonight I hit rock bottom: Whoppers.
It stops here.

This is worse than television snacking. At least then we wait for programs to end before getting more...don't we?

Still, I'm reading A History of God (Karen Armstrong) and The End of Faith (Sam Harris). Now, maybe it's just me, but this kind of study seems to beg for a carton of Whoppers. Something sweet while gnawing the Deity.
Dry, chewy deity... Perhaps ice chips would go better.

Looking at this I hear the obelisk music from 2001 Space Odyssey.

For me it's Jelly Belly Jelly Beans. It is one of my most horrible and expensive habits. I spent 11 dollars on Jelly-beans this past weekend, and I am wondering how I can possibly justify buying Jellybeans again until I turn 40. I eat them while I sit and write, and while I read the blogs of others.

Jolly Rancher puts out jelly beans for Easter **evil grin**

Jolly Rancher Jelly Beans are the poor-man's Jelly Belly's for sure. Delicious and affordable. They are tart and chewy, and beautiful. The Starburst ones aren't too bad either. But Jolly Ranchers kick their butts for sure. (I haven't been able to eat the hard Jolly Ranchers since one got stuck and pulled a filling out.)
