Another Friday has rolled around and I'm touching base with all my peeps...
Those little tasty bits of marshmallow, that so many of us love have a huge cult following. They have their own Wikipedia page, which clues us into their history and other various reference links.
They have their own webpage which seems to be geared to the younger set. With lots of fun things to do, including a fan club and recipes for various holiday themed peeps.
There is a research page dedicated to the little bits of fluff, with research having been done as to the longevity of the species, as well as various results from experiments being conducted regarding the destruction of these critters.
They have their own Facebook page, there is even a diorama contest, where there are entries with peeps placed in everyday settings, such as this...
I have said for a long time that everyone has an artistic streak in them, and the fascination with Peeps seems to reinforce that thought. Life can get tedious and sometimes it can get downright mean for some folks, so if playing with sticky marshmallow candies helps them temporarily lose the heavy thoughts that have them bogged down, then I say "go for it". I would like to remind folks that moderation is the key here, as with so many fun things, don't let your love for peeps take over your life.
Personally, I don't eat Peeps, they creep me out. When a friend at work gave me one, instead of eating it, I promptly placed it into the mouth of the baby alligator head that I kept on my desk. Said alligator head was presented to me by that this same friend as a souvenir from his Florida vacation. Why I keep calling this person "friend" is beyond me, he was a bit funny turned, to be sure.
But, in any event, I can no longer recall what today's post was going to be about, but here I am saying have a good weekend and stay creative...(and cool).
