Ice Cream Turkey

That's right boys and girls, it's another fabulous Baskin and Robbins ice cream turkey! This one is 100% better to one I saw last year--last year's one was sorta gray, sorta green, not appetizing. This one is what I will call fecal brown. That's right I said it! This is a blog of honesty! My fabulous and vegetarian coworker insists that as a vegetarian AND a lover of ice cream, she is very offended. I agree. Thanksgiving is all about food, and eating the appropriate food, so don't feed me ice cream turkey. I want pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie, or a pecan pie, please.

Please note the label on the upper right hand side of the box that notes this turkey is not cake, feeds 16 to 24 people, and is priced at $49.99.

An Open Letter to the guy who is not Tony Montana

An Open Letter to this guy on the Red Line:

I know, I get it, you're an asshole. You felt the need to sit next to me, to lean into me, to turn and repeatedly shove your backpack into my face. But thank you, because otherwise I would not have seen (and snapped a quick pic of) your *really* stupid Scarface-inspired jacket. Let's just say that just because you may like to watch MTV Cribs or find some sort of parallel between your life and that of Tony Montana does not give you the fashion license to "represent" the gang life with a painfully horrible embroidered jacket with Al Pacino's face staring me down as you talk to your baby mama about "all those young girls in class you think they all that," among other fabulous topics. And yes, when I knee your backpack and you turn and look at me, and I look you down, too, that means get straightened up.

A Vote for Change: Election Day 2008

Happy Election Day!

With great relief and glee, I marched over to the backside of the Savin Hill Apartments in the very lovely Dorchester to cast my vote (see above) for Barack Obama. We're in! Finally we Democrats have been on the offensive and took no prisoners this time! As for the scene, the voting poll station was busy, but not what coworkers have reported for other areas of Metro Boston (I didn't have to stand in line when I went at 7:00 a.m.).

Also, I don't like how the polling station is on the backside of this big apartment building, sorta hidden--last time I had to really investigate and then realize that yes, I had to walk up the service ramp, through some room, and then into the polling room.

AND seeing the cover of the Metro newspaper today, I had to opportunity to vote, again!
