Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

Random find:

When I was a kid I loved Fruit Stripe Gum. I found the above when I was doing an image search for the previous post about gum wrapper chains. I'm not sure what year the above was, but I'm guessing mid-'60s. I've always known Fruit Stripe Gum to have a zebra as its' logo, so I must say it came as quite a shock. To find out I was wrong . ..

There is a great candy store in Kittery, Maine, right before you head into York, called Yummies.

One time, I picked up a pack of Fruit Stripe gum, since I used to love it, too.

Yeah, doesn't taste so good now. Or rather, it tastes great for like a minute or two. Then the flavor is gone and you are left with a very bland stick of gum. Bleh.

Somethings, I guess, are better left to memory.

I think it was always that way (bland after a minute)
