Let's get our Christ on, let's kick it Jesus-style!

Dude.
Stephen Colbert Ice Cream!!

I had no idea this existed, and D managed to find out first. He went to four grocery stores tonight trying to find it for me so he could, just before tonight's show, be able to say, "Hey, I got you something to eat with The Colbert Report!" But it may not be out yet, and it surely may never even see Texas. But mmmmmmmm...fudge-covered waffle cone, caramel, all in vanilla ice cream. I'd be sad if it was something nasty. (I'm behind on my Reports this week, if it's been mentioned on the show; I've been falling asleep early this week. Meh, that's what TiVO is for).

Work has been slogging along, I've been neglecting the blog, the usual. We had the first of three exams yesterday; the weeding out continues as we lost one more person. Without a score of 85%, you don't get to keep going. It's a little terrifying, even if we get to use our online resources. It's the last exam that kinda freaks me out, since you actually have to DO things rather than just answer questions.

Netfux did me right--sent me ALL FOUR Tuesday releases (that I wanted, anyway): The Departed, Fuck, Marie Antoinette, and Half Nelson. The last one is an Oscar thing, don't ask. It may blow.

It snowed a teensy bit yesterday and a little on my car during my morning commute. Wild, positively wild. No actual accumulation, but this is the craziest weather North Texas has seen that I can clearly recall. I think it may have snowed like, six times by now (and by "snow," that means it snows and I see it). Once is the norm. And even then...

Friday is finally here tomorrow. Nothing exciting planned for the weekend, just not going to training will be enough. I need to do my taxes, determine whose benefits are better, and...well gee, I think that may be enough excitement right there. Ok, time for a glass of wine and whatever makes it into the DVD player...

Doesn't the Colbert ice cream sound yummy? When I first heard about it, I thought it would be in red, white, and blue sherbert
(which I hate). Ha, as you say, we'll probably never see it in texas anyways.

Hey, please review the Fuck flick for the BSL, I've been really curious, especially after seeing a trailer for it on the This Film Is Not Yet Rated disc...

Veloute said...

OMG! OMG! I have never seen this! I haven't been in the ice cream isle lately, but you can bet yer boots I'm there ASAP.

Not to be smug, but I'd be surprised if we didn't have it in VT.

I looked for it last night but didn't find it. But I must have it!

<3 Stephen!

That ice cream sounds delicious. I'll have to look for it.

daveyyo: Right on. I don't mind sherbert but somehow fudge-covered waffle cones are way more american than red white and blue. At least they're yummier!

mob: consider it stepped on. I was kinda unimpressed (just watched it this morning), but, like, it's a film about saying fuck. I'm not sure what I was expecting...

vel: you are so being smug. And as soon as I thought, "ugh, stupid Texas," I thought, "Damn those Vermonters!" I'd say mail me some but, uh, gross man.

Triana: If anyone in TX is going to see it, it'll be you Austinites...grr! (Hey, been meaning to make a drive down there anyway!)

JG: Hey there! I think it sounds yummy, too. I didn't eat lunch yesterday, and while driving home it popped in my head. It sounded even better. Apparently I like to torture myself.

Veloute said...

It wasn't at Shaw's! I am stunned!

I guess I have to eat my words instead of fudge covered waffles cones.

Well, there are other grocery stores, and perhaps I will have to make a trip to the factory and beg for some.

Ellen Aim said...

Actually, on the website it's featured, but then it's not in their list. So maybe it's just not out yet?

I will go down to the factory myself if it isn't out soon, though!!

It's becoming an obsession.
