“foodstuffs absolved of the obligation to provide vitamins and minerals cavorted with reckless abandon.”
Rue Montorgueil in Paris
“An enormous fortress of prejudices, privileges, superstitions, lies, exactions, abuses, violences, iniquities, and darkness still stands erect in this world, with its towers of hatred. It must be cast down. This monstrous mass must be made to crumble. To conquer at Austerlitz is grand; to take the Bastille is immense.”
― Victor Hugo, Les Miserables
on bastille day, all these years later, let history remind us that change is always possible.

that bit between christmas
and new year
when you don’t know what day it is,
who you are,
or what you are supposed to be doing.

Online novelty retailer Archie McPhee, with a fascination for innovative ways so reinvent the candy cane, has released their unique Clamdy Canes, a set of six clam-flavored candy canes. This flavor is perfect those who prefer to spend their winters on the beach in warmer climes.
“From the personified clam on the package to the clam taste, you’ll wonder how Christmas existed without Clamdy Canes. They’re a candy clamity! We all celebrate holidays in our own way and if your holiday tastes like the sea, this is for you. Add a little sand for extra clam realness. If anyone complains, just tell them to clam up.”
Archie McPhee also carries a comforting set of Mac and Cheese Candy Canes, which are perfect for those who prefer their holidays snuggling up with the family near a warm fire on a cold winter’s day.
“Macaroni and Cheese Candy Canes are a particular favorite of picky eaters. These candy canes taste like your childhood favorite — mac and cheese. It’s like comfort food-flavored comfort food!”
“if life were predictable it would cease to be life, and be without flavor.”

is it one of the hottest days of summer?
is it time for our annual
christmas in july/august celebration?
with long-time friends
odds and ends re-gifts to each other
that we’re highly likely
to re-gift to someone else at a later date
no reason to keep the joy of giving all to ourselves.
‘christmas makes me happy no matter what time of year it comes around.”
