IEM Training Update- Vol. 13; Issue 2

January 23 Status:



  • 2/3 Pint Haagen Dazs "Five" Brown Sugar Ice Cream. We bought way too much of this stuff. Once I open a container, it is impossible to stop eating it until it is gone.
  • 1 Hebrew National hot dog smothered with homemade pineapple salsa inside a flour tortilla. (Wasn't as good as I expected it would be.)
  • 3 Philippine mangos (We got these used from Berkeley Bowl, too. A bag of 10 was only 99 cents. These aren't as delicious as a really good "regular" mango, but they're definitely more consistent than the regular variety, which often taste like ammonia.
  • 2 cups of garbanzos roasted in the toaster oven with a bit of olive oil and seasoning.
  • 1 Tbsb. Peter Pan crunchy peanut butter (new packaging) eaten straight out of the jar.
  • A massive bowl of kettle corn popped in my Whirley Pop.
  • 24-ounce can of Pabst Blue Ribbon at the Stork Club.
  • 12-ounce bottle of Miller High Life.
  • Several handfuls of microwave popcorn at Kim's Backyard bar.
DEFECATION: Around 11am, I made what can best be described as a "bowl of Shredded Wheat left to ferment in the sun for a month."

I didn't leave the house until 11:15pm. Luckily, I danced a little at Kim's, especially when they played "Ain't No Stopping Us Now" by McFadden & Whitehead.

Andy Gibb- Shadow Dancing- 1978- $1.00- The hits off of this album are pretty good: "Shadow Dancing," "(Our Love) Don't Throw it All Away," and "Everlasting Love." However, this record is a huge disappointment compared to Gibb's 1977 debut, Flowing Rivers. While the debut was a great eclectic mix of disco and other pop styles (including some country-rock, even), Shadow Dancing is a generally weak, overproduced, lite-disco affair. It sounds like throwaways from Saturday Night Fever or a non-LP B-side from Spirits Having Flown-period Bee Gees.

We did Cameo - Word Up and The Mary Jane Girls last night. Luckily, I cannot remember a single note.

my husband is now on a mission to find that ice cream. I saw his eyes get all big when he saw it here.
