Lots of different things inspire one to compose a post. Becoming blogworthy can be the result of much thought and introspection or a flash of inspiration that must be immediately immortalized on the information superhighway. Either way, here are some new warm fuzzies of mine:
1) Nutella - an Italian hazlenut and chocolate spread. I'd seen it for quite a while in the grocery store, but since it lived next to the notoriously sickening Australian Vegemite, I just assumed it was just as vile. However, an episode of Everyday Italian with Giada De Laurentiis changed my mind. If it's good enough for Giada, it's good enough for me (yaya and Feather, I think she looks like Kristen Fyke). My friend and fellow Giada girl-crusher Mary-Kathryn also sang the praises of this sweet treat. I finally broke down and purchased some today, and it is life-changing - heavenly and sinful at the same time. It's essentially the filling of a Rocher chocolate in a jar.
2) And the winner of the Make Ice Cream a Legitimate Breakfast Option is...Ben & Jerry's Cinnamon Bun ice cream. I am no stranger to B&J's as I've been a huge fan of the Phish Food flavor for years. But a desperate attempt to avoid County Line Road last night led to cruising the frozen treats aisle at, you guessed it, the grocery store again. I'm beginning to see a pattern here... Anywho, as strange as it may sound, it's simply delightful.
3) This last one is fat free, no cals and 0 Points - my new cell phone. Many of you are aware that my last one went AWOL in the Detroit airport while I was slowly but surely making my way home from a trip overseas. After a couple of days without it, I decided to take the plunge and get a cool phone - I even clearly told the sales guy that I wanted a cool phone, and nothing Zach Morris-style would do. So, I now have a Motorola SLVR, and I have to admit, I think I am cooler. I'll really be unstoppable once text messaging comes into the picture.
