I found some Ben & Jerry's Stephen Colbert's AmeriCone Dream at Walmart. I haven't seen it in a while, so I was pretty excited. Now, as we all know, Stephen Colbert's AmeriCone Dream is just the "poor" man's version of the original, Dreamery's Coney Island Waffle Cone ice cream. But. I cannot find Dreamery here, so Ben & Jerry's it has to be.

For the uninitiated, it's vanilla ice cream with caramel and chocolate-covered waffle cone pieces. I highly recommend it.

Speed reading!

Here's a quick way to read your scriptures:

Wordle: 1 Ne. 1

That's 1 Nephi, chapter 1, right there.

You have -NO- new messages.

I can't find the cord to connect my camera to the computer, so no photo tours yet. Which is a shame, because my food storage collection is impressive. I have seventeen boxes of cereal, not including the three open ones in the pantry. (Okay, 16 boxes and one bag.) I had forgotten I had boxed a lot of my food storage up, Albertsons was having a know the rest. I'll be eating Trix until the second coming.

Meanwhile, did you know that Trix has gone back to the puffs?! That's right. No more crappy fruit-shaped Trix. It's a wonder that they did it at all; I'm sure it's much cheaper to only make one shape. I used to know the technical terms for this stuff, through no great effort of my own, but I've forgot them. So I guess I haven't lost anything.

In other news, my Wii weight is all over the place. It's completely impossible for me to gain (or lose) four pounds in one day. I don't think I can even retain that much water. I guess that's only about a half gallon. But still. That's a crazy fluctuation. I have to admit, there's something validating about weighing myself every day and having my little Mii jump up and down and say, "That's normal!" And it calculates my ideal weight (defined by the software as a BMI of 22, which studies have shown is the BMI at which you are least likely to get sick) is only five or six pounds away. So I guess if I lay off the fluids, my weight can be "ideal." Thank you, Mr. Miyamoto.

And you can eat the box!

How adorable is that? It's all cake! I have no reason to make it, but if I had a heart-shaped pan and red fondant, I would totally do it anyway. I suppose I could do it in a round pan, although that would diminish the charm a little. Still. I'm deeply in love with it. The step-by-step instructions are here. It looks totally doable.

I'm in love!

I heart my Wii. Especially with the balance board. Wii skiing is the way to go--no snow, no falling!
