Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: Chapter 23

Square Candies That Look Round

I'm trying to keep myself from going to the coffee shop and buying a $4 brownie.  They are very good brownies but I'm no longer in a place where a $4 brownie covered in chocolate art is affordable for my bank account or my health. 

So instead I'm going to take a second and show you this screenshot of something I saw 5 minutes ago.

So that's how Grandpa Joe got out of bed. 

Anyway, this chapter is useless. They look at some candies (or sweets, if you prefer) that have faces. The faces can respond to external stimuli. 

Okay, this chapter is disturbing. How? And why? Are these souls of dead oompa loompas? 

We also learn that the butterscotch and buttergin are making drunk oompa loompas. The children and Mr Wonka slide down a bannister. The adult women are out of breath. Mrs Salt is fat. 

See, other than the disturbing bits about the implications of creating candies that are designed to be eaten that can see you while you eat them, this chapter is useless.

That is hilarious!   How did you catch that, are you going through frame by frame?

Oh, it wasn't me. It just showed up on the front page of reddit today, giving the wonderful people at /r/grandpajoehate an opportunity to spread the gospel.

      We tend to never do things for holidays on the actual day, other than Christmas.

      On Feb. 13th my husband brought me a small bouquet of daises and carnations and a bag of mini-Reese's (YAAASS). 

      Our Valentine's "date" was Sunday afternoon.  We spent it wandering around the garden centers at Lowe's and Wal Mart, talking about all our gardening plans, and buying new seed and suet for our bird friends.

      When you've been married for nearly 3 decades and you're secure in your love, grand gestures are no longer required.  And fuck what society deems romantic - anything can be romantic when it's done by and with your one and only.

      I love this! I’m getting married in October this year and after 8 years with my fiancé, we do all of our holidays very low key as well. Valentine’s Day for us was a night in making homemade pizzas, drinking wine, and watching a comedy special. I’m not a big celebratory person and I’m a terrible gift giver, so I’m always happy just going to dinner or having some experience instead of a gift. I don’t get people who have to have big gestures, but I also hate attention on myself unlike Braggie.

      @Alisamer,  maybe it's because where my toilet paper holder is situated, but my none of my cats have ever unspooled the TP even though it's hung the beard way.  Not Daisy. Not Snorpi. Not Bianca. Not Adagio. Not Sylvester. Not Ling Ling. Not Heidi. And neither Molly I or Molly II.  Maybe all the cats, save Daisy who is still with us, are happily playing with the TP at the Rainbow Bridge.

      I do think it depends on the cat! The ones we had as children didn't unroll the TP. The two my sister and I had when we lived together? LOVED to TP the whole bathroom. Only the downstairs bathroom, however? Cats are strange. Wonderful and adorable, but strange.

      (Also, cat people, if you've not watched Kitten Academy on youtube, now's a good time to check it out - there are some super playful zoomy kittens with a calico mom AND a set of 10-day-old tinies. One of whom has a charlie chaplin mustache and a receding hairline - and is a girl named Foghorn. The other two are tuxies. Too cute!)

      Gwen is proud that she "doesn't have much muscle mass, and what she has isn't exercised much"? 

      I really feel like she has some serious body issues and an eating disorder. I am blown away that instead of getting help to recover from those things, she has instead managed to found a church and make tons of money based on them.

      I'm overweight. I know it. But I'm not starving myself and "waiting for the growl" and avoiding vegetables. I'm going to the gym, lifting some weights, and gradually trying to improve my food choices. I'm not even restricting calories at this point - I have before lost a lot of weight by restricting calories, but I was dizzy all the time. Instead I'm trying to eat better - but my first focus was making a habit of going to the gym. I'd rather be healthier and fat than skinny and on the verge of fainting.

      I'm amazed Gwen doesn't fall off those ridiculous platform shoes, with no muscle and barely any food. If she did she'd probably break something. Exercise helps strengthen bone, Gwen.

      What, no talk on Jessa's messy house tour with cute little Spurgeon talking like one of the kids on Kids Say the Darndest Things?

      I skimmed it, because there's no way I was going to make it through a 23 minute video tour of someone's tiny house. But Spurgeon saying the Christmas tree in the Master Bedroom had been there for hundreds of years was kind of funny.
