Hello Blogosphere. I'm back. Wow. Harder than I thought to just show up here and say that.
Let's see...what's new? Ahh yes, about three months after my last post, I was called up to the Big Show. In NYC now, shepherding a flock of of SEO/SEM geeks. My people. Same job, but now for clients all well known globally.
I'm sure I could blather on about the things that have happened in the meanwhile, but if I cover it, I'll go into a "flashback" post.
The main reason to return is to draw attention to and mourn the loss of a cultural icon: Circus Animals has gone on to that three-ring circus in the sky. Since childhood, this colorful treat has comforted me, and many a frosted little animal has met their end in my gullet. My parents would never buy me something this garish and delicious, they were more of the macaroon type of folk. (*Urp*) I can't even say the word "macaroon" (*Urp*) without gagging. . . They may not have been high-flautin' cookies, but I would like to think of them as Redneck Ambrosia.
When I first lived on my own, this was my treat of choice, partly for their buttery goodness, partly because I couldn't afford Oreos.
Now the end has come my friends. The economy has claimed a new victim. Their parent company, Mother's has closed their doors. They cite the cost of sugar and flour skyrocketing, but I know the real reason. I haven't bought a bag of them for five years.
I'm sorry I let you down, Circus Animals. I'll miss the frosted goodness and sprinkles to lick off my hand...
Of course, by NOT eating these trashy delectables, I will most live longer. I just won't enjoy it as much...
P.S. Some other blogs of concerned citizens lamenting the fate of Circus Animals:

P.P.S. Thank you for all the nice posts and well-wishes from my readers over this last year. Sorry I never responded to them, and there were quite a few more of you other there than I even dreamed of.
