party down? i just discovered it on netflix, and am IN LOVE. i used to work as a caterer for my mother's small company back in college, and while our crew was a lot smaller, it does make me a little nostalgic for the old job. oh, and it's funny as all shit. i just got to the jennifer coolidge episodes, and the one where she is on shrooms and joking about her green merkin being too small made me full on guffaw out loud. MERKIN. always funny. i also watched a patton oswalt special the other day that made me laugh so hard the kids came down to check in on me. i think they think i'm mildly retarded. ha!
we also made ice cream yesterday with one of our THREE ice cream makers. my mom bought D one for xmas, which he has used once. we got two for our wedding, when we had zero on our registry. one of them makes a lot of ice cream and uses ice, the other one is an awesome cuisinart stand-alone. normally i could give two shits about ice cream, but we bought ingredients the other day because it was hot and i thought the girlchild and her friends would dig making it. we used pineapple, toasted coconut and mini chocolate chips. it was epic! so tonight we made coffee ice cream. also amazing. we ate it right out of the maker before freezing some for tomorrow. i went from not really caring about ice cream, to being totally sold on making it at home and glad we have so many options for making it.
the neighbors are all doing fireworks, so the cat is hiding out in our room under the dresser. she doesn't seem too irritated, she keeps rolling over for belly pets and meowing for attention. she just isn't coming out from under there any time soon.
