>Just got in from watching the New Star Trek movie, but it is about the old Star Trek, as in it goes back to the beginning of Kirk, before he was Captain Kirk. Anyway, I saw this picture, and so I copied it to put here, enjoy!

course I really have a crush on Spock.

Yesterday was supposed to be my first ‘pass day’ with the new work schedule, but I had a meeting to go to in Manhattan, so today is my ‘pass day’. The meeting was O.K., Tom was there and I had hoped to go to lunch with him, but my boss kept insisting on going to the going away lunch DOW was having for the intern. One of the reasons I didn’t want to go was the last time I was there it was AWFUL. It hadn’t changed, in fact I wrote a list up when I got back to the office.

The list reads:

  • Soda was flat, (we got two pitchers of diet soda, I got water)
  • bread was not fresh,
  • Fly on someones salad plate,
  • Chicken was tough,
  • Some dishes were too salty,
  • marinara sauce tasted like it came from a jar,
  • When the water pitcher was refilled, no ice.

Than last night I took Fred to the spring concert, Em had to take Gwen someplace, I forget where, afterward according to tradition we went for ice cream, I said Ron’s, he said Cold Stone®, I said, “Well if Ron’s isn’t open we’ll go to Cold Stone®.”,

“Bella, you know Ron’s is going to be open because they know the concert is tonight.”

Ron’s is the local ice cream shop, they normally close at 9 during the school week, but they stay open later when they know the school kids have an event.

“I take it you want to go to Cold Stone® instead of Ron’s.”


“I don’t know how late Cold Stone® is open, they might close at 9.”

Fred texted Em to see if she knew, no answer, I told Fred if Cold Stone® was closed we weren’t going to come back to Ron’s. I don’t really blame him, although Ron’s has the best soft serve in Dutchess County, possible the whole Hudson Valley, the ice cream at Cold Stone® is better. I wanted to go to Ron’s because it is on the way home and cheaper then Cold Stone®, however, Fred needed to come down from the concert high or ‘de-stress’ as he calls it.

We got there and they were open, Fred had marshmallow with Reeses Peanut Butter Cups® and I had mint with raspberries. Then we came home.

>This is why you should carry your camera with you, because you might find a broken umbrella and you can take a picture of it and send it to Better off Soaked like I did when I saw this umbrella in the subway station on my way home from work. It had poured that day, nasty thunderstorm. I took the picture and e-mailed it, the words are all hers.
