Tossed Salad Friday

~~ I forgot about buying Halloween candy until Wednesday night. On my way home from a class, at around 9:00 pm, I stopped at a CVS and joined nine or so people browsing the candy selection. Know what we all found? Practically no Halloween-appropriate candy, but plenty of chocolate Santas, candy trees, and green and red foil Kisses! candy I guess the Valentine’s Day candy will be on sale Christmas Eve.

~~Speaking of candy, why the hell are we as a country cutting back on food stamps and early education, but granting $300 million in sugar subsidies? http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/31/us/american-candy-makers-pinched-by-inflated-sugar-prices-look-abroad.html?ref=todayspaper&_r=0

~~ With all the grammatical tools available, why would a wannabe writer send out a story pitch riddled with mistakes? Run it through some program or another, please, or pitch your idea to a radio show. I trust they aren’t as picky about random semi-colons and em dashes showing up all over a script.

~~ I got some grief talking to some real estate practitioners about the subject of my Wednesday blog. One colleague says I can’t torpedo a whole upward trend based on one real estate dropout. I told him I was flattered that he thought I had the power to put a damper on an upsurge, and then reminded him that two days before, he had mentioned how “dead” his office was.  “Well, that’s different,” he said. “I’m waiting for the phone to ring… you’re saying it won’t.”  I excused myself to get my crystal ball repaired.

Have a great weekend!
