The Day of the Doughnuts

Confession time: I’m a Power Ranger fan. As in, I grew up on Mighty Morphin, am currently up to date on Ninja Steel, and just about died from joy after seeing the new Power Rangers reboot in theaters. Needless to say, when I heard about Power Rangers doughnuts at Krispy Kreme, I was so there.

For anyone who doesn’t know, this is the LAST weekend to get Power Rangers doughnuts! If you loved the movie, Go-Go show Krispy Kreme some love by April 2. Let’s get this sequel made one delicious doughnut at a time.

The doughnuts are chocolate-glazed, “Kreme”-filled delights sprinkled with I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-Goldar sparkles. Topping it off is a sugar lightning bolt in the color of your choice. But, really, the only choice here is one dozen or two?

I guess my sister and I never learned not to play with our food because this happened before we actually ate our doughnuts:

Ay-yi-yi-yi-yi! Rita’s transformed the Rangers into doughnuts, Zordon!

Happy Sister’s Day!

It’s just been brought to my attention that today is Sister’s Day. My first thought was: How did I not know this?! I have the best sisters ever!

My next thought, as it often is, was The Goonies:

Poor Brand. As much as I love Mikey, I have to admit: Brand’s sort of missing out. Sisters are special things. You might fight with them – but never as hard as you’d fight for them. You can tell them anything without ever worrying they’ll spill because, let’s face it, you’ve got just as much dirt on them. Sure, when you split lemon meringue pie your sister might eat all of the lemon and leave you nothing but meringue…

…but she’ll also swap her Red Ranger card for your lame Madam Woe because she knows Red is your favorite. She’ll do your hair and makeup for your first dance – and your first photo shoot. And, if your sisters are as awesome as mine, they’ll sing “That Thing You Do” with you nonstop for the entire drive to Disney (sorry, Mom and Dad) because it really is that great a song.

So to all you sisters out there thanks for being awesome! And to my sisters: thanks for always being there, even when “being there” meant reading endless drafts of manuscripts and query letters and *gasp* notes to boys. Y’all are the best!
