R is for Reading blogs that make you buy ice cream and other voodoo magic.

I was skimming through the intrawebs, minding my own business, when I came upon this post about Rocky Road ice cream.  Damn Jedi mind tricks and evil witchery (not you, Delightfully Ludicrous, you’re awesome).

Before I knew what was happening, I was in my car and en route to the local grocer for this…

It's gonna be a long night.

It’s gonna be a long night.

That’s right, I was able to fight the mind control just enough to grab some asparagus.

Why two kinds of Rocky Road, you ask?  Science.  Or maybe because I’d already picked up the Edy’s kind and I was worried about not being able to eat it in the car – it can be a bit awkward – and I couldn’t be all putting shit away while I was trying to get out of there and inhale some chocolaty goodness.  Also, a special shout out to the deli guy that was kind enough to give me a spoon.  I didn’t ask.  He just ran up to me and said, “I think you’re gonna need this.”   What a very thoughtful asshole.

Speaking of assholes, my husband snapped this of me coming out of the garage…

There was no time to waste getting all pretty.

There was no time to waste getting all pretty.

Did I mention that I hadn’t left the house today, or showered, or brushed my hair?  The boots were by door and I think they match the ensemble perfectly.  It was an emergency.

This all could be due to the steriods I’ve been taking for the lung thing – nope, it’s voodoo mind control and not at all my fault.


American German – language lesson #46

Ich liebe Eis. (ick lee-ba ice)  I love ice.  Which translates to ice cream, not ice cubes.  While in Germany, my friend Carla ordered a Diet Coke with ice (beverages usually come without ice cubes) and they looked at her weird and brought her a Diet Coke with a bowl of ice cream.   Breakfast of champions.


  1. Evil rocky road icecream, sneaking into our subconscious and making us eat it. See, I said it was a conspiracy! And now it’s spreading!

  2. Haha! So it was Jedi mind tricks and evil witchery that just made me eat a whole tub of Rocky Road Ice-cream and nothing whatsoever to do with the two posts I read that mentioned it…or the fact that I’m just a greedy bitch? I feel much better now, knowing this. 🙂

      You are welcome! Glad I could be of service. Speaking of greedy bitch, Rocky Road MIGHT be my favorite because no one else in my house likes it or it could be voodoo.

  3. So, you didn’t tell us, which rocky road was better?

      Hands down – Haagen Dazs. It’s got whipped marshmallow awesomeness and a very generous almond to ice cream ratio. Edy’s is great but Haagen Dazs is epic.

      Oh no. Now I want more Haagen Dazs.

  4. That was worth the LOL moment! Yeah, there are some blogs one must be careful about timing/reading. Of course, now reading yours, I’ve added Rocky Road ice cream to my shopping list this week -thanks. (smile).

  5. Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia. I think I’m the only one in my house that likes it, but I really wouldn’t know because I finish it before anyone else could try it…every time.

  6. Definitely voodoo mind stuff. DEFINITELY!

    SO which kind of Rocky Road was better?

    I sent Dan out for milk Friday night and he came back with a Oreo ice cream pint of heaven for me, his very pregnant wife.

    It didn’t last long. So, I’m right there with you.

  8. Chocolate ice cream with marshmallows just happens to be my favorite. I just finished off my carton of Smore’s ice cream and now I want more. Wonderful. My pants are going to love this.

      For me, this is day three of generous ice cream helpings. My pants are never going to fit again. Smore’s ice cream sounds Ah-mazing.

  9. there is no time to waste when we talk about ice cream!!!! it is ok i went to see off my sister in my pjs and no make up or bra or brushing my hair, my mum said no one will see us….the old granny saw me and judged me…

      Hi Jette! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Eis Cafes in Germany. The best Eis on the planet. I might need to write a post about it – I have a lot of pictures. Is writing two ice cream posts in the same month a bit excessive? I might have a problem.

      My mother-in-law always orders her drinks in the US sans ice. It freaks the Americans out a little.
