Forget Turkish Delight

This message has been brought to you by Häagen-Dazs Dulce de Leche. Don't be scared of the Flavor Finder™. Hunt this stuff down. It's amazing what this ice cream and a phone chat with findfinishfreedom, my sister in struggle, can do for a day full of end-of-term grading. (Don't worry, students, you'll have your marks soon!)

Of course, the standard creature comforts help a lot, too, and on that end I can report that The Family Stone mostly sinks, despite the potential embodied in its handful of good scenes, and Easy Rider is, as they say, a trip—just don't ask it to be more than that. (Rent Home for the Holidays and Zabriskie Point instead and get better bangs for your buck...literally, in the latter case.)

Sniff. I'm sick, and I really would like some of that Dulce de Leche. That is all.

Aww, ... happy to report that a quick phone chat with you energized me more than that 8:45 last call expresso shot at Juna's. The karma continues: I logged on to your site for dinner company, and to REWARD myself for marking a stack of essays. If only our students smelt that midnight oil burning, both at my desk and on the stove. (sigh) ... Lastly, hats off to Haagen-Daz, the temperate Northern cousin of Southern Comfort. I recently discovered Godiva's Creme Brulee, an exquisite treat which I'm saving for the night after my grades are Out. Of. My. Life. At. Last!
