We got [l]ucky and went to the theater last night. Waiting for the show to begin, we ate popsicles on the patio, overlooking the woods...

... and Meade saved me from a tick.

Later, the next morning, we reminisced and danced The Net. You know the new dance craze, The Net? You dance as if you are entangled in a net.

I'm glad Althouse called them Popsicles.

Isn't the disingenuous trend now to call them frozen "Fruit Bars," when they are pretty much the same sugary treat of our youth?

I still love 'em, too much really, but spare me the bullshit health conscious ballyhoo.

NEW! Antioxident Fruit Bar flavors. Real fruit, naturally, in every bite.

Introducing new fruit bars in "super fruit" flavors - Pomegranate and Acai Berry - packed with free-radical fighting antioxidants.

Caution: Strawberry all fruit bars are addictive.

Whose woods these are we do not know,
We looked at them before the show;
After the show we looked and saw
A sans Godot spot waiting for....

The "popsicles" were a Haagen Dazs bar and a Ben & Jerry's cherry thingie.

The Blonde loves pomegranate popsicles.

For The Blonde, it's the lime ones. Except for money and traffic lights, about the only green things she likes.

PS I thought this dance was The Net.

"You dance as if you are entangled in a net."

This would describe how I always dance. Nice to know it is now an actual dance type.

My wife the other day when I was back in San Diego for the weekend started screaming about this tick that was on her and I yelled at her to just flick it off it was still moving. And she was just screaming about the damned tick on her and she wouldn't touch it. So I went upstairs in my gigantic house that my wife and I bought, together, without any input from our child or dogs, and saved her from a lifetime of potential Lyme disease by flicking the tick off of her. I'm her hero now because I saved her from that demonic tick.

What the hell is it with women and bugs? It's just a tiny creature and you are this huge being compared to it. Kill the damned thing and shut up. Jesus.
