Whatever it takes

August 25, 2011


Sometimes you have a website filled with useless drivel because Real Life on some days is just too ugly to talk about. So, on a day like that you show photos of the ice cream carton you cut through with a knife so you could get to the non-freezer-burnt part so you could eat some ice cream with chopped-up cookies on it while drinking rum, touchy stomach be danged.

I thought this would be faster than scooping the top off. It was.

Grasshopper cookies.  Keebler's answer to the Girl Scouts.

    But if you cut off the top, you can’t put a lid on it. That means you’d have to eat ALL the rest of the ice cream in the container.

    Oh… wait… That’s the idea, isn’t it?

    Whew! I thought that banner picture at the top was a picture of a big ‘ol hunk of cheese. Not a good sight 1st thing in the morning. But ice cream, cookies, chocolate 1st thing in the morning? Oh yea!!!!!

    PS—Lloyd, do you hava an iPad? I’m still not sure what all you can do with those. At WP they are trying an experiment. They’re thinking about going to iPads & they had a lottery thing & issued so many for the semester. My son Matt got one. He’s so excited!

      I don’t know. We don’t have one, but I think that once Lauren’s netbook gives up the ghost that we will be getting one.

      Our principal has one instead of a laptop. He’s got a case for it that has a keyboard built in, and he seems to like it.

        There’s someone that works for a vendor that my bank uses that has an iPad. He’s stopped taking his laptop with him -- he just VPN’s into his laptop at the office on his iPad and can do whatever he needs to. He’ll use the 3G connection (there’s hardly any lag time with the VPN), and he’s fully operational. He has a great keyboard that he got from Zagg so when he puts everything away, the iPad flips over and is protected by the case of the keyboard.

        I forgot to ask how much better it was to play Angry Birds on the iPad over his phone…
