Candy Corny

#700

  This is it.  A rather subdued celebration of this being My Odd Sock’s 700th post.  As low-keyed as the grand opening of yet another Starbucks. Yep, seven hundred.  That is CRAZY.  I never figured to reach that number when this craggy website first opened for business back in July of 2009.   I thought …

Maskpalooza

  Now that mask mandates are being lifted faster than a Kardashian tummy-tuck, only one question remains. What are you to do with all those leftover masks?

  Well lookie there.  My lucky day. A crumpled dollar bill at my feet. With no one around I was forced to claim it as my own. What to do with my new-found windfall? Hmm, I could buy a lottery ticket and dream big. Or I could spend my single tender on something small & …

Not So Ninja

Not So Ninja

  My home has been overrun with ninjas. Not the mercenary type…..kitchen appliances!   Ninja has become the new nameplate of kitchen gadgetry and more. Maker of the popular air fryer (we have), coffee makers, food processors, blenders (we have), toaster ovens, cookers, just about anything you can think of—Ninja makes it. Well, sort of. …
