Sweet teeth

October 31, 2001

i just want to sit around and eat candy all afternoon. fists full of candy corn and twizzlers and raisinets and skittles. did you know they sell powerpuff girls stickers in boxes like raisins? that’s almost as bad as quarters from the old man down the street. tonight we’re watching mr. leary’s funeral and opening our giant bottle of sake and yelling ‘boo!’ at the kids who wait on our front porch. if i’m feeling up to it, i might wear my tiara, but unfortunately my taffeta dresses are hanging up in my parents’ garage.


  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
