Feel me up Friday Awards: Oreos taste waaayyyy better than sleep spray

Yesterday, after my post about signs, my cat, Ritalin, fell asleep standing up. How eerie is that, yo? (Yeah, I realize the two aren't related, but it could mean I'm about to find my agent...) The saddest part about this story is, I watched her head sway and nod for about ten uninterrupted minutes. I'll never get that time back.

Actually, I do have something to add about fate and signs and dreams. It came to me in the form of a song by my new yummies, New Medicine. I wouldn't call it anything other than words to live by.
Don't try and tell me where I fit in the equation,
F*ck that and f*ck my reputation,
I'm gonna find my own inspiration...
 Can I get an amen? Uhh, this shall be my anthem for all the times I forget who's really running this dream thing. Who's with me? *Waits for a lone hand through the crickets*

Random Fact: Cookies N Cream Homemade Brand ice cream is my favorite. But I have a confession: My OCD kicks in when I'm scooping and I literally can't stop until all Oreo is gone. My bowl could be heaping, dripping, spilling over and if I see a cookie fragment, I'll dig it out.

Random Fact: I've talked before about eating face wash, dropping my glasses in the toilet, and still allowing the hubs to tuck me in at night. What you don't know is, I'm a Sleep Spray addict. It smells like lavender and vanilla and I coat my pillow every night with it's deliciousness. But two nights ago I did something that's only normal in Candyland. When I angled it to spray, half asleep, I didn't notice the placement of the nozzle until I had a mouth full of it. Now my taste buds have no trouble drifting off..........yeah.

Oh wow! Fantastic feel-up (though nowhere near Creepy's entertaining faux facts). After a long week of foreplay, this was a nice end to my week. You should hold seminars for couples who've lost the "spark." I really do have a ton of awards to hand out, but to be completely, brutally honest (I wouldn't be Candyland if I weren't), it's a lot of work doing linkage and picking names and whine whine whine, so I didn't get to it like I'd hoped. Alas, they will happen.

And just as I've finished typing this, the answers to those biotch questions are pouring in. Now that, my friends is a sign. Until I know for sure...

Tell me, what's your favorite ice cream and are you insane like me?  (Elana do you hear me on this?)

Happy weekend. Feel me up again Monday, Tuesday and every other day. I quite enjoy it.

Candyland. OUT <----(still the one and only)

I've got a sleep sprays for when the kids are sick. One of them smells like itd be good on a bbq (like rosemary and thyme) but the other is for ventilation when their sick (like eucalyptus and menthol) Anywhoo- my fav ice cream is haagen daaz Midnight Chocolate Cookie. I'm NOT a huge sugar eater (I prefer salty foods) but when I was preggo with my kids i could down a pint of that stuff no prob.

Sleep spray? Don't tell me you spray toilet spray on your pillow, I'm sure it's just another form of that! ahahhaa!

I LOVE peppermint ice-cream and I can't get it here! I'm dying!

Yep, I think I'm insane, but in my head, it's probably called nisane, only because that anagram sounds like a chemical, which in fact, is probably inside what you spray on your pillow at night. No wonder you're insane! :o)

Anne said...

Do you wake up this early or do you set it to post at that ungodly hour? *Yawn*

I am insane. It is apparent in my blog.

Jaydee Morgan said...

Love the song lyrics - sounds like the perfect anthem :)

As far as ice cream goes, I'm really not a fan. One scoop is about as much as I can handle but if I'm going to have it, I like the sweetest flavors around - like cotton candy or bubble gum.

Anne said...

P.S. I also have a band-aid on my earlobe today. It's a long story but I think it needs to stay.

Jen said...

I'm with you on sleep sprays, nothing like the sweet smell of lavender to drift you off into dreamland in a field of lavender flowers... that's bliss.

Favorite ice cream? Hmmm, I'd say for the moment it's chocolate chip cookie dough. I love the cookie dough and I'm like you with the Oreos... just with cookie dough... make sense? Okay now I'm sounding crazy!

Dawn said...

Hmmm. Sleep spray. Interesting. I think I need to find some of that!

Fave ice cream is ROLO. I pick out all the Rolo pieces, too. So when my husband goes to have some, it's no longer Rolo...it's just chocolatey-caramel goodness.

AMEN and Ahum...

Favorite ice cream, ooh. That's my only vice. I love them all, but anything with chocolate chunks works.

Yes, I am crazy. Wouldn't want it any other way. ";-)

Lenny said...

hi miss candace! i never heard of sleep spray in my whole life. i think it would get me sneezing. ha ha. you and me are the same for ice cream. cookies n cream rocks!
have a fun week end. ...hugs from lenny

Dianne K. Salerni said...

You should try BADGER Certified Organic Lavender and Bergamot SLEEP BALM -- because it doesn't matter if you get it in your mouth, it doesn't taste like anything. It can double as Nighttime Moisturizer!

My favorite flavor is my husband's homemade vanilla ... with tiny, semi-sweet chocolate chips in it.

Tahereh said...

i second EVERYTHING MATT SAID.

plus this part:

i love you.

MBW aka Olleymae said...

lol--I love your cat's name!! And I, too, have lost hours of my life by watching my pets do stupid things.

And my fav flavor of ice cream is COOKIE DOUGH WITH EXTRA COOKIE DOUGH. OMG I NEED SOME RIGHT NOW.

Amanda J. said...

I forgot everything I was going to say because I was laughing and then all your other comments were just as entertaining. So this is just a comment to say I <3 you and your blog. :)

Solvang Sherrie said...

Okay, the sleep spray is hilarious and a cat named Ritalin?! ROFL!

I luurrve Cookies 'n' Cream, too. But recently I've been cheating, with Carmel Praline Crunch. OMG. So good with bananas foster!! YUM!

Amie B said...

my favorite flavor of ice cream? chocolate, of course! but Cold Stone creamery feels me up, I mean FILLS me up, best with their MUD PIE MOJO complete with OREO's, peanut butter, roasted almonds and fudge (just swap that coffee ice cream for chocolate and we're golden!)!!

Carolyn V. said...

I'm totally insane (sad but true). I think I love any ice cream (w/o nuts). Yum!!!

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

Yes! Is it the spray from Bath and Body Works? I love that stuff.

My fav ice cream is Half baked by Ben & Jerry. YUM.

Now I gotta go to the grocery store. Thanks.

Have a great weekend!

Zoe C. Courtman said...

Ooh, got a cobalt blue bottle o' lavender sleep spray on my bedside table as we speak!! Love your Feel Me Up Fridays, btw. :D And my favorite kind of ice cream? Cold. Flava doesn't even matter. If there's ice cream, I'ma eat it :D

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Thanks Candy. I almost forgot to give my son his Ritalin. NOT a good thing to forget.

LOL. So I'm not the only hoarder of awards. :D

I looooove mango ice cream. And I'm perfectly sane like you. :D

The Urban Cowboy said...

Sleep spray? Never heard of it...does it actually work?

Favorite ice cream is chocolate chip mint.

I don't think I'm insane, but a lot of other people call me crazy. What's that all about?

Talli Roland said...

Love that your cat names Ritalin fell asleep standing up! I didn't know that was possible, either.

I love Sleep Spray too but the thought of it in my mouth is just *foul*. I'm not surprised at all that your taste buds have revolted!
