Three days until Christmas, my daughter’s birthday was this past week and her party is today. My sons’ birthday is coming up in a week. I should be running around with my hair on fire.

Twinkie Thief? Yes. Yes I am.

The Twinkies were there at the party. Just sitting there, right on the table, out in the open. For anyone to take. Less than a week after I wrote this post, Hostess Twinkies don’t go! I couldn’t believe my eyes. Were these people crazy? Twinkies were selling for like, a million dollars each on eBay and...
