The Cone is Simply the Vehicle

I love ice cream! I mean love love. Not like, not "kind of admire",but a pure, unadulterated, kind of X rated, kind of porno love for ice cream. No fro yo, ick! No skinny cow, even though it's not that bad. Don't even come at me with "low" this or "low" that. Jesus, let's not even mention ice milk. Whoever came up with that bullshit, needs to have a serious talking to.
I love ice cream that is pure and fresh and preferably local, organic even. That's good. I love mint chip, jamoca fudge, rocky road, if the mood strikes. But there is a place, here in Northern California that has flavors that would make your toes curl. I'm here to say, and I want you to pay attention because it's that good..... Earl grey tea ice cream! I know! It sometimes has lavender crystalized chips in it. If that doesn't get your girly bits all tingly, what about Mexican chocolate? Or mango? They have chocolate creme brûlée! I know!
Ok, I'm all worked up and need to go get my frozen treat on, seriously.
I hope everyone out there is eating good, no, great, ice cream, reading a great book, getting a little sand in your toes and soaking up some natural goodness from the sun.
Still haven't painted, but I hope that I can Thursday night. I miss it terribly and I want to roll my sleeves up and get going. But my painting mojo isn't as powerful as my ice cream mojo right now :-)

Peace and Earl Grey Tea ice cream,

Pretty Good. Preettty Preeettty Preetty Good.

Summer lovin' had me a blast! Summer lovin' happened so fast! Boy I wish. BTW, I learned a new expression, ear worm. You know, when you've got a song stuck in your head like you might right now? To quote Weezy from DragonTales, "LOVE IT"!
I love anything that the "kids" are in to. Meanwhile, my kid is hocking me a tchineck like nobodies business for a new toy. No new news here people.
All day long, it's wieners, butts, penises, boogers etc... I have to admit that I will be a little sad when this stage is over.
Non-sequitor, I haven't been painting, but I hope to be sniffing turpentine later today!
Love and rockets,

More Cowbell Please!

I'm not a complainer by nature, although my husband would beg to differ. I don't like conflict and I don't like problems. I like when things are smooth going and there is a general feeling of peace in the air.
Unfortunately, this is not how it usually goes down, I seem to be waiting for the other shoe to drop. That being said, what I am talking about, has nothing to do with nothing.
Meanwhile, here is a painting that I did a little while back in Tahoe!

Peace and more cowbell!

Ok, it's an inside joke but I thought it appropriate for this week's mayhem. Yeah, I said it, mayhem. I don't have any idea what the derivation of mayhem is but it's a fun word.
Out of town guests who themselves had out of town guests and then onto Tahoe with the boy.
Too many dicks on the dancefloor. Just sayin'.
Meanwhile, here is one of my paintings.
