Do I go get chocolate truffle or chocolate mint chip ice cream? Despite needing to prep for class and wash an enormous pile of dishes, not to mention the fact that I made a vow just last night that this quarter I would lose those 10 pounds, I am in need of something dessert-oriented. I'm not so bad as I was the other day, but still feel the need to self-medicate, and as I have neither Prozac or rum in the house, ice cream it is! Of course, I was an idiot and bought lots of healthy fresh food which is merrily rotting away in the refrigerator because I am going to walk downtown and get ice cream instead of eating the fruits and veggies, but what can you do? You certainly can't self-medicate with fresh blueberries, not without some lovely vanilla ice cream on them. And I have no ice cream here or any desserts at all, because of my silly weight loss vow. Ah well, live and learn.
The job search situation remains the same. Still no news. I'm going to not think about publishing anything or my various backup plans B through F (or rather creating more backup plans) tonight; I'm just going to concentrate on how cold and creamy and smooth the ice cream is. Because I know I make stupid decisions when I try to plan stuff at the end of the day when I'm tired and cranky and depressed just on an ordinary basis, much less days like these. Which brings me back to the original question: chocolate chocolate chocolate, or a lighter, more minty chocolate version?
