I hope that's ice cream with caramel, and not breakfast with ketchup.

Clearly, neither of you have any food intolerances.

Clyde said...

The food police aren't going to like that! All I can say is, "Indulge while you can!" Because once the government weasels are giving us "free" healthcare, it's going to be broccoli and soy milk for dessert from then on.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

What kind of breakfast is that!!

You should have what I had for breakfast. Bannana cream pie. Much better for you....more food groups.

I'd have put peanut butter on it. But that's just the way I am.

The Blonde and dbq have a lot in common.

PS Why does the word splooshing come to mind?

Hagar said...

The MSM is all agog about the big spy swap.

Anyone else read John le Carre's "The Looking Glass War"?


wv: unwrapho Do I dare go there?

It looks like fleur de sel.

soy milk makes boys into girls.

It is part of the plan.

It looks like caramel stick chart.

Marshall Islands stick charts were made and used by the Marshallese to navigate the Pacific Ocean by canoe off the coast of the Marshall Islands. The charts represented major ocean swell patterns and the ways the islands disrupted those patterns, typically determined by sensing disruptions in ocean swells by islands during sea navigation. Stick charts were typically made from the midribs of coconut fronds tied together to form an open framework. Island locations were represented by shells tied to the framework, or by the lashed junction of two or more sticks. The threads represented prevailing ocean surface wave-crests and directions they took as they approached islands and met other similar wave-crests formed by the ebb and flow of breakers. Individual charts varied so much in form and interpretation that the individual navigator who made the chart was the only person who could fully interpret and use it. Use of stick charts and navigation by swells apparently came to demise after World War II, when new electronic technologies made navigation more accessible, and travel between islands by canoe lessened.

EDH, Marshallese stick charts are cool.

Too bad Althouse ate it.

Similar to the documentary "Supersize Me", I would like to try living solely on dessert. The problem? Definitions.

Lem said...

Maybe indulging is not the right word..

I finally watched The Sorrow and the Pity (1972) in its entirety.. I've seen parts of it before.. (its long)

It will be available (Netflix) for streaming on the 28th.

That hand looks like Meade's (I am guessing). Althouse just photographed it.

Wow, what a bad lip synch job Shakira is doing! AA should watch, if you can withstand the criticisms of the socialism.

Viva Espana!

I think I'm going to the bar.. to watch the game as it was intended.. long ago in a galaxy far far away.

HT said...

i'm on a Mac, and I can't figure out the enyay. Used to be alt + 164 on my pc. Mac's impossible.

I clicked through the picture so that I could get the full size version and lick the screen. But I was thwarted because the picture is restricted and marked "private".

I see in today's WaPo that the Obama family is taking another vaction; apparently his third since the Gulf oil spill began. What's he done in 16 months that wears him out so much, I wonder?

HT -- Control+n, then n.

stevenehrbar said...

Er, i mean alt-n, n. Been a while.

Kurt said...

Now that is certainly a big dessert, but if you want an enormous dessert, the place to go is a Claim Jumper restaurant, where they are famous for serving a 6-layer chocolate cake, which is but one of their many seriously oversized portions.

mtrobertsattorney said...

That's the hand of a workin' man.

knox said...

If I'm going to have a dessert, which is rare (my weakness is savory, not sweet foods) I'll have it big, or none at all. Who wants to indulge, but hold back while doing so?

HT said...

Steve,

If I do
alt
n

it does not work.

But you said n twice. But
alt
n
n

still does not work.

HT said...

alt
n
n

Works.

Apologies and thanks.

It manages to look both yummy and nauseating at the same time.

MamaM said...

Using yummy and nauseating in the same sentence, HKatz sets the stage for the Ohio Express version of:

Yummy, yummy, yummy,
I got love in my tummy,
And I feel like a-lovin' you.
Love, you’re such a sweet thing,
Good enough to eat thing,
And that's just a-what I'm gonna do.

Hazy Dave said...

I think I could give up desserts easier than I could give up music. "Yummy Yummy" notwithstanding.

(I'm not sure I'm using the term 'notwithstanding' correctly here, but what the fock.)
