You know how I told you about all the food the caterer was making?
I didn't tell you that I came up with the brilliant idea of using cans of Spam for risers under certain trays. I love this idea. It makes me laugh.
I told the caterer I would bring the cans along and he looked at me a little weirdly. I'm not sure why. Doesn't everyone use Spam on their buffet table?
Besides. Spam is Crazy Tasty now. At least that's what the can says.
Somehow, oddly, I doubt that to be true advertising.
Gosh, I'm running out of time to tell you stuff.
Did I tell you that we have a live swing band playing, which is cool! But do you also know that you can call Arthur Murray Dance studios and they will send a couple out who will do a dance demonstration followed by a little dance class - for FREE! I'm excited about this even though I don't dance. But I'm gonna dance on Friday night.
After all, I will be in disguise and no-one will know it's me! Between the cats eye glasses, a beehive, and the authentic shades of lipstick I researched and bought (bright orange and bright red)no-one will believe that plain, old me could be so glamorous and exotic. So when the crowd gathers around the dance floor they will be struck with admiration and awe wondering "who is that glamorous and exotic woman wearing cat eye glasses and a beehive" and I will simply ignore them like the peasants they are and dance on...basking in the glory and dancing with wild abandon.
That was actually really funny.
And now for the sacrifice part of this post.
I totally did this for you.
If this doesn't prove that I appreciate you for reading my blog nothing ever will.
Ladies and... ummmm.... ladies... I give you... I was shocked and amazed that hardly anybody knows this candy. This is possibly the best candy ever invented in the history of candy. It contains all natural ingredients such as corn syrup, sugar, corn starch, modified food starch AND artificial flavors and colors such as Red 40, Yellow 6, Blue 1 and Yellow 5. If that is not enough to whet your appetite I give you, in all its unwrapped glory...a Chuckles Jelly Candy Bar... Please take a moment to admire the glistening beauty of the sugar encrusted jewels of gummy goodness.
Chuckles must be eaten in descending order of preference. Always. For me, the green one must be sacrificed first. Followed closely by the yellow one. And then and only then can you move into the sweet perfection that only the orange, black and red can give you.
The last morsel must always be the red. The red is the pinnacle of jelly candy perfection. It should be savored like a fine wine...enjoyed and admired like a Rembrandt or Picasso. Ahhhh....
I am complete now. I have shared the glory of a Chuckles bar with you and I think, perhaps, my mission in life is complete.
And since I feel somewhat cruel having tortured you with all this sweet perfection I am going to do a silly little giveaway .... just today... out of all the comments you leave.
In the giveaway will be one of every single kind of candy I have on the candy table for my Dad's party PLUS a WW II foam plastic-y glider plane PLUS a pair of Cat's eye glasses.
Can you imagine such riches?
Well, if you are the lucky winner of this amazing giveaway you won't have to.
You will hold in your own two hands the perfection that is Chuckles (along with all the rest of the candy INCLUDING a giant box of Crows)
I'll do the drawing tomorrow night around 8:00 pm Arizona time so any comments made before that time will be eligible.
I won't, however, ship your prize out until Saturday or Monday cuz I am gonna be one busy, busy girl!
And don't forget, our second practice of Alphabe-Thursday will be on ... well, d'oh....Thursday. McLinkey will be open for your links Thursday, Friday and Saturday...
And our letter for this week will be "B".
Thanks for making this party planning so much fun!
I really appreciate you all.
And to prove it I'm willing to put my Chuckles on the line.
Just for you.
Because I'm cool like that.

NOTE: There is a small chance that your particular Chuckles package may be missing the red candy. Probably not, but there is a small possibility and I am all about full disclosure here at the Jenny Matlock blog.
