A couple videos, sandwiched around some words, and love

This video is for Captain Crab, who sent me the link this morning. It's awesome, truly hilarious!



Last night I apparently decided that I wanted to sleep on my futon in the living room. My room just felt too warm, the living room was much more comfortable. But while I was laying there, I really felt like falling asleep watching television, which presents a problem: we don't have cable, and can't receive any channels very well through an antenna. And it's worked out pretty well, there are very rarely any times where I "need" to watch TV, and not having anything to watch made me actually do stuff. If there's ever anything I have to watch (the World Series, Hawkeye away games, etc), I can just go over to my brother's place and watch it on their gigantic plasma-screen TV. There are the times, however, like last night, where having the Food Network or ESPN or the History Channel or the Discovery Channel would've been pretty amazing. Then again, I'd probably have to pay for it, and I'm not sure how I fell about that.

Something else happened last night that may have changed my life. At work, I found out that there is an ice cream flavor (I think Ben & Jerry's) called something like "Cinnamon bun batter" or something similar. This, when added to apple pie, has the power to bring about world peace, I'm convinced. It made me feel like life isn't so bad. I'm pretty sure when I took a bite of the ice cream and pie together, I saw love visualized, appearing before my eyes in the form of colors, and birds, and shooting stars, all on top of a grass-covered hill in the middle of a meadow. This combination made me want to cry. It seriously made me weak in the knees. I can't explain it, you must try it for yourself. Preferably with a warm, homemade Dutch apple pie. But if you fall into a love-(or sugar-) induced coma, don't say I didn't warn you.

And now, for a musical interpretation of love, ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Chet Baker!

Ben & Jerry's has cinnamon buns ice cream now. It sounds disgusting to me, and honestly is there any ice cream better than Phish Food? Or Cherry Garcia?

oatmeal cookie dough. with chocolate chunks not raisins. a thing of amazing beauty. i love b&j for that alone.

that first video is hysterical. thanks for the afternoon laugh.

h - I refuse to purchase anything related to Phish. And, I don't like cherries. The Cinnamon Bun ice cream though, splendid. Just get a little pint of it and try it out!

hannita - I don't recognize oatmeal cookies as oatmeal cookies unless they have raisins in them. I'm glad you got a chuckle from the video!

raisins are on my banned food list. i just don't understand them or like them at all. in anything.

flenker, stop it. i am stuck here with no mode of transportation, no ice cream, and no apple pie. reading about it, you may think, would help. but it doesn't, i tell you. all i can do is dream about a sugar-induced coma, world peace and such...

really though, cinnamon bun batter sounds downright amazing.

Oooohhh, I love Chet soooo much.
Toothless and all. I still think of myself as Ms. Baker...

sorry. I get teary. I don't give a rats ass about ice cream.

If I did...vanilla swiss almond. MAYBE macadamia crunch.
That's all I'm sayin'...
