milkshake.

ice cream has this amazing power of being totally addictive. it's like chocolate in that respect... only softer and colder. to confirm that you are hopelessly addicted to the stuff, you must crave it... i'm not talking about just wanting the ice cream. one must have insatiable cravings for it. any form of ice cream will do - milkshakes, malts, floats, concretes, sundaes, ice cream sandwiches, ice cream cones, ice cream cake [a personal favorite - though completely sinful], gelato [though not technically ice cream, you get my drift], just plain ice cream...

why is it though that i only seem to really crave the stuff when it's bloody freezing outside? it's like my habit of chewing ice... the colder i/it gets, the more i do it. i've been sitting in studio all day, it's 40 degrees outside with a biting wind and i can think of nothing but ice cream. i want a ben & jerry's phish food milkshake... as of now, i've never had a ben & jerry's phish food milkshake, but i love ben & jerry's phish food and i love milkshakes... so why the hell not? [and no, this isn't like the whole 'i love pickles and i love peanut butter so why shouldn't i combine them' thing... phish food and milkshake are quite compatible...]

we eat way more ice cream in january than in the summer. we have often wondered why.

i rarely crave it but my husband does. you know, like you said, CRAVE it. he's mad for the stuff.

I've recently cut back on the pot, but when stoned I'd frequently get cravings for ice cream with coffee or toffee in it. Sometimes both.

you should put that smoothie maker to some good use. you know, the one on the kitchen counter staring at you every day.
