For breakfast I had blood-orange Italian sorbet and lemon Italian sorbet (1/4 pint of each).  Does that count as ice cream.

Sorbets are primarily made from fruit, so, although, it's not technically "ice cream", you did have breakfast. :)

Just remember, DR Kerry:  Moving can be a hassle, but when you're done you're left with a huge pile of bubble wrap. It's like a reward for your hard work.     :)

Well, I believe I'm going to head over to a picnic that some friends of mine are hosting.  Thankfully, they're neighbors with lots of porch and living room space since it looks like we may be getting some rain and storms this afternoon.  Then, I believe, I will be treating myself to a massage - my first one in a long while. My regular masseuse, who travels up from Norfolk once a month, happens to be in town this weekend, so... :)

Mint Chocolate Chip was always my favorite ice cream as a kid, and I love still now. I also enjoy a dark chocolate with cherries in it type of ice cream.

OH, how I would love to be able to eat ice cream again   >:(

I'm sorry you can't eat ice cream.  The frozen yogurt place that opened in town had sugar free.  Is that permitted, and if so would you even want it?  Keith eats sugar free ice cream.  If I can't have the real stuff I prefer not to have it at all.

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.

I don't remember the brand, but there's a Neapolitan chocolate with five different chocolate flavors from white to dark chocolate that's very good, and it's not too rich. :D

Breyer's. -Although, I think they only make the "Triple Chocolate" "rainbow" right now.

I don't care for Breyer's.  Baskin Robbins has World Class Chocolate which is their regular chocolate & white chocolate.  We were living in Pennsylvania the first time I saw & sampled it. :)

Back from the meeting, which went exactly as I wanted it to.  It started with me being spoken to.  I let him finish, and then, when the floor was mine, I calmly read from a series of seven e-mails - a beautiful oration in which I had to add no external comments.  At the end of my oration, I simply said, "You tell me."  And he knew his coming all this way to have this meeting was for no reason whatsoever.  But we also talked of other things, and it was all fine.

I had a nice visit with my friend Gregg who was in town this weekend for a marathon race. Usually we have dinner on the evening before his race, but he's just been cast in THE SHADOW BOX and had rehearsal last night, so he didn't get into Charlotte until very late, much too late for me to wait for dinner.

I know you'll love your new surround system, DR JMK. However, the most trying and nerve-wracking job in home theater installation is switching out speaker wires and cables for a new receiver. I hope I don't have to do that again for many, many years. I've had four receivers in my home theater life, and I don't think I've ever swapped one out without encountering some kind of problem.

I was able to watch last night's PSYCH while I ate lunch. A very fun, funny episode which I greatly enjoyed, a riff on THE EXORCIST that had me in stitches.

Due to Gregg's visit and several telephone calls during the afernoon, I didn't even get started on part two of THE HUMAN CONDITION. Those three hours will take up tonight's work hours.

And wasn't it also funny that the DEVIL from "Reaper" played the priest? :D

Yes, and Ray Wise was excellent. He's good at everything he does. I always enjoy his acting.

Darn.  I loved the five different chocolates (even though the flavors weren't all that different from each other).

DR MBarnum were you referring to the 1972 British, vs Australian, “Are You Being Served?” http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068040/plotsummary

There are also more than one “Thunderbirds” series.  Keith & I both thought of the cartoon show, don’t know about the other.

Back from our afternoon in Cincinnati.  Our main errand was to go to Rob's garret and turn off the window air conditioner, which he'd left on last night and didn't want to keep running until Monday.  I was also quite pleased to see how thoroughly cleared out his room is.  All we have to do Monday is use his cousin's truck to transport the bed, dresser, desk, and chair.

Richard and I then went downtown for lunch at Izzy's - we each had a bowl of beef barley soup and half a Reuben.  Then, Kenwood Towne Center, where Richard bought PJs and I tried to get the Estee Lauder gift-with-purchase.  They didn't have the item I wanted to purchase, though, so I passed.  Then we went to a Hallmark store that sells Vera Bradley, where I tried to spend a gift card that I'd gotten in payment for presenting at a conference.  Didn't find anything I couldn't live without, so I passed there, too.

And, no Graeter's chocolate chip, because my purchase of a pound of coffee at Starbuck's entitled me to a free latte and that satisfied my sweet tooth for the time being.

Now, we're home in front of the TV waiting for Sen. Kennedy's motorcade.
