I stand (well actually, sit) corrected.

So the mighty Dr. C. returned from teaching her last class of the summa' and corrected my minor errors on the first blog.

1. The place we went to is the Dairy FREEZE not Dairy Treat (as is found in Minnesota). As a good sociologist, she of course provided evidence for her claim (notice foto on right).

Dairy treat is very different. I looked for a picture but couldn't find one. I did find a picture of one of the butter head sculptures that happen at the Great Minnesota State Fair every year. Princess Kay of the Milky Way and her court get their heads sculpted in butter. When the fair is over they get to keep them and offen the butter is consumed at some kind of big deal picnic or something.
2. The quote was actually (and this is better than what I posted - really, it is - just let us know what you think): "The ice cream is melting and running down my thigh."
3. There we some random grammar things but she's making dinner and I want to go back to working and watching the "Deadliest Catch" while I still have access to cable.
Assuming we have access to internet, more will follow at some point.

Snack list update: in addition to pretzels, carrots, an apple, some cheese & ham something, yummy organic cheese crackers, honey candy, trail mixes and some other stuff, we now have vanilla sugar wafers and twizzlers. We'll be able to get to VA just powered on the sugar alone. Good thing we're having tofu spring rolls for dinner.

And so it begins

Carrie and I are often joking around about 1) our friendship ("how are they bffs?") and 2) the amusing things that we encounter together so today we decided that since we sometimes feel like our adventures are similar to a reality show that we'd enter the world of blogging so our techno pals who have run out of things to do can see what we're up too. Plus it helps me to feel a bit less antiquated since I don't text or have a cell with a camera on it and currently still use a paper planner - which tends to sit on my desk - at least I look organized.

This all happened when we were having some ice cream at the Dairy Treat - which I think was in Milton or Quincy. Nice metal sign with someone in a parka eating icecream. The place sold hot dogs, clam something or others and sides included rice pilaf if one didn't want onion rings, french fries or mozerella sticks. It had festive teal/bluey and lime green colored strips, a painting of a polar bear in flip flops and funky lettering.

Best quote taken out of context: "My ice cream is melting and sticking to my thighs".

More soon - if we can make this thing work properly. - k
