Peep Friday

peep on the desk
The merchandising of those sugary yellow peeps is really extraordinary. Here's my most recent Peep merchandise purchase. It joins the peep-topped pen (which is also wrapped in fuzzy yellow peep goodness), and my Peep holiday lights. Which, by the way, are now up and draped around the bookcase in my office. They're even sugary, crystally looking. This newest addition is about 4 inches high with wheels on the bottom. You crank it back on the ground, or surface, and off it shoots, peeping all the way. Oh how I love Peeps.

After my earlier post this week which included Peep references, Rozanne shared this website with me: Peep Research. I think it should be called Peep Torture instead. But then I'd be inserting my bias, wouldn't I? Make sure you check out Peep Surgery. Classic!

Have a great weekend, peeps!

You have a great weekend yourself Ms. (Peep) Thang :-)

Moto says to give Wink an eyeball lick AND a butt sniff from him.

I never liked 'em and never will. But who cares about me!

Have a great weekend!

I'd love to see a photo of those Peeps sparkly lights--they sound fab.

My favorite Peeps research project is the one that "studies" the effects of cigarettes and alcohol on Peeps. Highly scientific!!!!!

I can't help but notice that there appears to be a miniature Shriner behind your wheelie Peep. Or are my eyes deceiving me?

that Peep looks like it had Peep plastic surgery, with all the stitching. Perhaps an unseemly marshmellow growth, the likes of which those shallow other Peeps would not tolerate? Did I see that on E!?

Peep lovers, unite!
Okay I need to take a photo of the peep lights. I think bag-o-donuts knows what they look like.
And yes, that's a Shriner on my desk. How can anyone work without a Shriner?!?
And finally, my Peep is all natural and did NOT have plastic surgery! However, the one I got Wink will need surgery due to her incessant CHEWING on it. Darn it!
