Had dinner at Anne’s on Saturday night in honor of Hailey’s birthday. Drank too much beer, ate too much food. Got slightly sunburnt while sitting near the pool. Talked to Jim about stuff including Phoenix landing on Sunday. He gave it about a 90% of landing without incident. I’m sure he was a pretty happy camper on Sunday.
Sunday. Goofed off. Started up EverQuest 2 accounts again. Watched The Lookout. Not a bad movie. I’m not sure if they did a great job with the character’s mental disabilities, but it was passable. Jeff Daniel’s is great in it and I was really fun watching Deputy Donut kicking some butt. It was pretty much exactly as I expected it would be.
Today, I was really intending to work. And then didn’t. Got bit by the EQ2 bug and the laziness bug. I could do a little work this evening, but I’ll probably just catch up on the goof-off stuff I’m behind on.
Ran today, but probably pushed a block too much. My knees have been unhappy. I think I need new shoes.
Ice Cream #10 – Haagen-Dazs Green Tea Ice Cream
I really hoped that this would taste like a Thai ice tea. I could imagine that it might. You know, green tea, sugar, cream. It was possible. But it is not the reality. I suppose this ice cream tastes like green tea, not I couldn’t find it. Eric could, but he agrees with me, there’s some other taste that just doesn’t work. My brain says avocado but that’s only because it is the color of guacamole. I added cinnamon, and it helped, but not enough. Sadly, this is an ice cream that I won’t be eating any more of.
And that ends my 10 ice cream list for the 1001 challenge. As with the candy goal, I wanted to do this to try new things instead of eating the same old thing. My favorite of the bunch? Haagen-Dazs Chocolate Peanut Butter, which is surprising since I generally go for vanilla bases.
