Wellll cruddo!

I went to Dromgoole's to pick up my carton of small parts bags, and... it's not there! The lady said they'd called all around, and couldn't find a distributor anywhere in the COUNTRY who has any. What the freakin' hell! What, did the small parts bag tree crop wither this year? Was there an infestation of small parts bag-eating bugs? Did every truck in the country carrying small parts bags fall off an overpass and crash? How can they not have 'em?!

Maybe I should try again in a month or next year or somethin'. I don't need 'em that urgently; I can get snack-size Ziploc bags at the supermarket. I just wanted some bags that were even smaller.

She's blue, da-ba-dee da-ba-die...

In "Pure Imagination: The Making of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory", there's this funny bit about something that happened to Denise Nickerson, who played Violet Beauregarde, after filming the scene where she turns into a giant blueberry...

Two days later, she now claims, she was sitting in her classroom in New York City. One by one, the kids in her class started pointing at her and giggling. A friend sitting next to her turned and told her that she was turning blue. Denise jumped up from her desk and ran to the bathroom. For some reason the makeup was resurfacing on her neck and face. She jokes that she was never asked out on a date again at that school because the boys were afraid she was going to change colors.

What I wanna know is, what's so bad about dating a girl who changes colors? I think it'd be cool!
