Okay mouse, can you make the snacks non-breakfast? (i.e. chips and dip, something for later in the day)?

And Vaca, good idea! If you have a power strip or extension cord at home it might make things easier. Or, I'm sure we'd be okay without it if you don't have one!

Gosh ya'll sure make it sound like fun! Makes me think of a family reunion - only better 'cause you get to choose who is in your family!!!

OK, I gotta ask - what is a ringding and a hard roll? Is that kinda like kung foo for us overweight folks? OR, perhaps MSD, a plague prevalent in most societies - marriage (ring), sex (ding), and divorce (a hard roll)? Come on now, tell me the truth - should I be looking in the Jerry Springer archives for ringdings and hard rolls?????? I bet a dollar to a doughnut that there is something listed there with that tag!

Anyhow, I can tell ya what a biscuit with a slice of streak-of-lean is, or an RC and a Moonpie, or even grits with red-eye gravy....but I simply don't know what a ringding is. (Call me Ringding challenged RDC for short!! )

Okay. Here's the deal with Ring Dings.

When I would get PMS, my ex-husband would come home from work, open the door a crack, stick a box of Ring Dings through and wave it around.

I would run up to the door, snatch the box out of his hand and go quietly go away. Smart man. I forget why I divorced him.

Ring Dings are not like other snack cakes. First of all, you have to have the tinfoil wrapping. That's what gives it the flavor!

Sad part about ring dings is...no more foil wrapping.

They come on a piece of cardboard in a plastic wrapper now.

Why, why?

Hard rolls are a smaller version of real French bread. Crusty(hard) on the outside but soft on the inside. They go great with butter on them with a cup of coffee. Turkey with swiss cheese, mayo and salt and peper go great on a hard roll too. Hold the tomatos and onions... no slimy tomato guts on my sandwich!
Catsmeeyow- if you find your explanation in the archives of Jerry Springer let us know! That was too funny.
