I did not have a great night. Another one of those sleep for three-four hours, stay awake for two, sleep for two nights. I feel punch-drunk right now.

I can't believe I was able to do it because my arm was hurting this morning, but I pushed myself to get the front yard mowed. It was not fun, and if this condition persists into next summer, I'll have to hire out the mowing of the yard because it's just too bothersome to do it.

When I finish upstairs this morning, I should have time to watch another episode of LIE TO ME. I also have last night's PSYCH and MONK to watch while I eat lunch the next two days.

I finished watching HARPER'S ISLAND last night.  It took me 2 days to watch all 13 episodes.

The show is no work of art, but it is fun and, I must admit, I did "jump" a couple of times.

However, I did have a pretty good idea who the killer was by the end of episode 6.  It was just a hunch, but it turned out to be right.

My work project today, of course, continues with the second 3-hour movie of THE HUMAN CONDITION. In this one, the main character participates in the Japanese army during the Manchurian War.

I watched the first three episodes of HARPER'S ISLAND when it originally aired, but I just thought the acting was so terrible and most of the characters so uninteresting that it didn't hook me and I stopped watching after the third episode.

Another ice cream place I loved was Washtenaw Dairy in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  My aunt and her family lived near there when I was in junior high and I remember that the ice cream cones were about the size of parking meters.  It's a townie place, so it took some convincing on my part to get my college friends to go there.

I think it's the model for the corner dairy where the characters in Valerie Laken's book Dream House go for ice cream.

Hope this is not a controversial statement, but watching MONK and PSYCH last night (not something I regularly do) made me think as a hypothesis that the lighthearted graphic treatment of murder and corpses on TV are contributing to a certain distancing of the impact of death of others in the real world, an immunization to people for the horror of the death of people who are outside of our own circles.   

That ends my philoso-pothesis for the weekend.  :)

TOD

Don't remember the first time, but it had to be chocolate. When I traveled by car to go to Cape Code for the first time we stop at a Howard Johnson and I had a Moca Chip. And that flavor and its variants (capucinno chip, chocolate chip) are now my favorite.

Does Howard Johnson exist anymore selling ice cream?

TOD:

I don't generally like sherbets, but just about any other ice cream is to die for. I assume vanilla was the first ice cream I was given. It was my father's favorite and we always had some on hand (I preferred chocolate), but I tend to buy one flavor ice cream instead of the innumerable combinations that are also available.

Salt Lake City had two wonderful, old fashioned ice cream parlors, Snelgrove's and VaLora's.  VaLora's had divoon chocolate and Snelgrove's had amazing Burnt Almond Fudge.  My sister was just in SLC and said Snelgrove's had closed, sadly.  They had a huge rotating double scoop ice cream cone (ice cream cone, did you say ice cream cone?  Yes, rotating ice cream cone--a Monty Python reference, kind of ;) ) on their street sign.

I just saw this headline:

Mel Gibson To Star In Jodie Foster’s ‘Beaver’

It's hard getting that image out of my head.

My new Onkyo 7.1 home theater system is due to arrive today, with the new slim PS3 due on Monday, after which I should have a brand spanking new home theater environment.

Dr. Mansur Murtah has written to inform me there's money waiting for me in a Nigerian bank.  I'm pretty sure Dr. Mansur Murtah was a villain in a Charlie Chan mystery.  ;)

Here's the Snelgrove's sign (evidently after a truck had hit the bottom of it):

Now that the service has started, it seems all the chatter and commentary has stopped.  I hope. -But I'm watching the service on MSNBC now.

I will say, it does feel a little weird to be "multi-tasking": watching Ted Kennedy's funeral on TV, and surfing the web at the same time.  -Sort of like my own "chatter", I guess.  :-\

Someone by the name of Daniel Six friended me on FACEBOOK. Does this name ring a bell to anyone here? I don't know who this is, but wonder if I am just not remembering, and I do not recognize any of his friends. I have not accepted him thus far.
