Sleepy Cat Thursday

There's nothing earth shatteringly interesting on the knitting front to report, so I give you Ramius on the sofa instead. I am knitting: I'm on the cuff of the second sock and the Caribbean Sea Monster is bigger, but neither one looks particularly interesting. Since Ramius hadn't been on the blog in a while I figured it was his turn. Yesterday afternoon Mickael surprised Caleb and I with a trip to Cold Stone Creamery so we all got some yummy ice creamy goodness to brighten up the afternoon! (There's really nothing like fat and sugar to perk up your day!) Ramius happens to LOVE ice cream. When I sat down with my bowl of ice cream (Strawberry Shortcake Serenade with Cake Batter Ice Cream instead of Sweet Cream) Ramius was in my lap almost immediately. I have to say that his ice cream manners have gotten better over the years. When he was a kitten he would try to knock the ice cream off my spoon with his paw before I could get it into my mouth. Now he just eyeballs me in that creepy cat way that you know if you don't share, he's going to jump on your head. Good times.

In other food news, have you guys tried the Jelly Belly Buttered Popcorn flavor? Yes, the jelly beans actually taste like buttered popcorn - and the best part is that its not weird - its good! It seems to me that the minds that can make a jelly bean taste like buttered popcorn could be better put to use coming up with some alternative fuel sources. I mean really, why does JellyBelly get all the really smart scientists?

I'll be back tomorrow with some knitting stuff. Or something!

Hmmm... I'm not a big fan of the Buttered Popcorn, however you cram a Peanut Butter - Jelly Bean and a Jelly - Jelly Bean in my mouth and I'm having a good time.

I'm thinking about trying these (http://jellybelly.com/msib21/PromoSites/SportsBeans/SportBeans.html) as soon as I'm done with my current box of energy gels that I use when riding/running. They're supposed to be pretty good.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one fascinated by the flavor scientists that work for JellyBelly - though I could do without even the thought of the Harry Potter beans that they did that included flavors such as vomit, boogers and Rotten Eggs!

Have you ever tried the Jelly Belly Buttered Popcorn candy canes? The jelly beans don't fool me, but holy moly, the candy canes taste exactly like buttered popcorn, and you walk around afterwards thinking, "Hm, I don't remember having any popcorn...oooohhhh, yeahhhh!"

Have you ever tried a Popcorn and Cinammon Jelly Belly together? It tastes great!
