"flakey flix & beer - food of the gods"

In the midst of a competitive match of KerPlunk Monica dashed off to the kitchen and returned with a Flakey Flix for each of us. I immediately recalled one of our (drinking) life mottos from college -- Freshman year, first apartment with Melissa...

"Flakey Flix and Beer! FOOD OF THE GODS!"

I found myself tonight, uttering those words for the first time in nearly 20 years.

"Flakey Flix and Beer. Food of the Gods." And found myself repulsed by the thought of consumming these two products within days of each other let alone at the same time. Alas, let me be the first to say aloud, Flakey Flix and Beer are Food of the Gods no more.

tick. tock.

"My how time flies."

"The older you get, the faster it goes."

"Where did the day go?"

We've all heard all the silly cliches about time passing. Lately, I feel I'm living every last one of them. I can't believe I haven't blogged since August. I can't believe I actually wrote a draft of a New Year's post but never actually got around to posting it. I can't believe it's the 27th day of 2008. You know what?! I can't believe it's the 8th year of the Y2K!! Does it seem like it's been EIGHT YEARS since we were all freaking out about what would happen to mainframes and power supplies and the whole friggin world when the calendar switched to 0-0?

I know you feel me.
