bb chocolate covered strawberries

mark the date cuz something nice is about to be said about blue bell, namely its new Choc Covered Strawberries ice cream. The description says "vanilla i.c., strawbs, choc-strawb hearts, & milk choc swirl." As a preface, bb already has a choc-covered cherries, one of their better flavors w/ cherry-vanilla i.c. and dark choc swirl (plus these "choc-covered cherry" things which aren’t cherries, more like "cherry goo"). that cherry version is good but its intense almondine flavor tastes almost fake. this straw version is better cuz 1. strawbs seem to have an intrinsically more natural taste, and 2. the strawberry & milk choc flavors combine nicely. But those "choc-strawb hearts" are just like the choc cov'd cherries: big puds that lack refinement.

Did you take this photo? There's something I like about the way it looks. (Even with that spot on your wall.)

Did you decide not to update your blog every day? Your output's spotty. Like that wall.

There's something about people who echo other people's comments. What is it ... oh, yeah: they're ANNOYING and DUMB.

You know, I saw a musical over the summer. It had nothing to do with chocolate or ice cream.

You know, when I got up this morning, I thought it felt a LOT like 24 Miyazya 1998. Didn't Bob Marley write a song about today?

I just got to try Blue Bell's Chocolate Covered Cherries ice cream. The ice cream was goood, but I didn't care so much for the chocolate chunks. Are they similar to what's in this flavor??

a doctor i know painstakingly injects big plump strawberries with a couple of cc's of rum before dipping them in choc. (only a doc would have any interest in sitting around with a syringe, some rum, and a mess of strawberries...) they are awesome.

Parker's got the right idea! We didn't have any syringes over thanksgiving, but we pinpricked a bunch of cranberries and other berries and soaked them over the course of a couple days in Vodka, Cognac and other yummy boozes. Made a great desert. It doesn't feel like getting drunk if you're simultaneously eating berries!

ON SPECIAL OCCASIONS, I INJECT A CAT WITH SQUIRREL GRAVY AND THEN ROLL IT IN SMELLY STUFF ON THE GROUND. TRES YUM.

I'm sensing that tg is among the missing these days. This spotty coverage of "white hot data on ice cream, espresso drinks and new restaurants" is leaving me worried. What could she be up to????
