if that was 1), then this is 2)
i discovered that i don't like ice cream. ice cream made with goat's milk, that is! b and i bought some laloo's deep chocolate goat-milk ice cream last week and it was deliciously chocolatey but unpleasantly strong on the goat milk flavor. i've had (and dislike) goat cheese and thought that the strong flavor came about at some point in the cheese-making process, but no. le sigh. it's too bad- their packaging is quite pretty. confession: i clean and keep pint-sized ice cream containers after having consumed its contents. c'mon- it's not that weird - they're useful and pretty storage containers. and, heh, i like to reminisce about delicious ice creams i've had in the past. confession: i do the same with chocolate bar wrappings (though i have yet to figure out something really smart and functional to use them for).
3) returning to 1) for a moment: i'm working at scripps in the art department, specifically for the book arts class, which always needs help finishing its semester-long limited-edition collaborative book project. not that i mind! anyway, this semester's book is beautiful- definitely, i think, within the top ten coolest books made at the press in the past twenty-something years/40+ books (and i have seen them all) . if you have $250 lying around, i would highly recommend it. (that, by the way, is a bargain. don't even argue with me.) i'll describe it later and try to snag a few exclusive pre-publication pictures (i'm pretty sure that's allowed, actually). the title is "word". subjectmatter: words and meaning. visiting artists sam winston and ron king came to provide some initial direction.
4) the scripps senior art exhibit opened on friday. it was fun.
5) i want to eat ice cream (we bought cookies and [cow] cream to make up for the unfortunate goat ice cream incident) and work on the wsj crossword puzzle. maybe i will do so.
