I have a new beverage obsession..
It actually replaces my usual coffee run in the morning

Peach Mango to be precise..

it goes like this

Frozen Peaches
Frozen Mangos
1/2 Cup of Low Fat Vanilla Yogurt
Some O.J.
and Ice

Icy Smooth Goodness

Does anyone else have this obsession?

Got any flavor combo suggestions for me?

And don't say Bacon..
I do not want a bacon smoothie

wrong ones

So like I said...
I was really sick over the weekend

I could not keep food down
it was like a puke-a-thon

I ask my sweet, loving husband to make a run to the
supermarket for me
For 3 things
- Ginger Ale
- Gatorade
- Popsicles

I was very specific (as usual)
I said what brand of Ginger Ale
I said what flavor Gatorade
and most important - the Popsicles
"Listen to me carefully"
"I want the basic orange-grape-cherry Popsicles
and none of that twin pop bullshit
just the single Popsicle -- one stick"

He nods..

I wait anxiously.
Dehydrated and in great need of an ice cold, frozen miracle

so finally - he arrives home

I ask him to "Bring me a grape one... hurry
I am dying"

He hands it to me
it doenst look normal
rather pale in color...
I say "Are sure this is a basic grape Popsicle"
He acts all annoyed "YES!"

I taste it
It tastes like grape juice
real grape juice.. weak, watery, grape juice
ike Popsicles are supposed to taste like!!!
You KNOW what I'm talking about..

I said "No way is this a Normal Popsicle"
he runs to the freezer
and yells back "POPSICLE BRAND
I told you! You just like to complain about things"

Something was off...
But in my weakened condition I could not get off the couch to
investigate the matter further
I had to live with it.. for now

I sat disappointed..
Later that night I endured 2 more watery orangey flavored ones...
I thought to myself they must have changed the formula - But WHY!?

So a couple of days later - I have regained my strength...
I decide to see for myself
I open the freezer door
and there before me is this

Do you see it?


Now - I'm all for healthy food..

I'm Dying...
This could be my last day on earth
I long for the chemical goodness of red #5 and high-fructose corn syrup
and he buys me "All Natural Popsicles"

Why didn't he buy me some brown rice
and hummus while he was at it?!

So I tell him LOOK!
This is what you bought??
You Bought the Wrong Ones!!
You Bought the Wrong Ones!!

and his reply..
brace yourself...


you mean to tell me
out of the entire supermarket
they had only one type of Popsicles for sale?

In my 35 years on this planet
I have seen many a frozen food sections
and there's usually an ample variety of frozen novelties

Not just one lone box of healthy fucking ice sticks

Men pay no attention to detail..

I would not have made this mistake... not on my watch.

the end


it's a beautiful day.

been sick

Hi Kids
I've been violently ill all weekend.
It felt like this...

But today...
I ate a piece of toast - and I didn't throw up
You know what I call that?

The Twilight Zone

I Love The Twilight Zone
Original Series (1959-1964)

Rod Serling:
Born December 25, 1924, Syracuse, New York, USA
Date of Death June 28, 1975
(complications arising from a coronary bypass operation)
Height 5' 4"
A former boxer, paratrooper and general
all-around angry young man

Wrote the majority of the Twilight Zone scripts

Some of My Favorite Episodes:

"Night Of The Meek"
"The Invaders"
"Third From The Sun"
"Nothing In The Dark"

You're traveling through another dimension --
a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind.
A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination.
That's a signpost up ahead: your next stop: the Twilight Zone!
You unlock this door with the key of imagination.
Beyond it is another dimension: a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight,
a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance,
of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into... the Twilight Zone.
