Saturday in the Frozen Foods Section

I finally located a supply of H-E-B Creamy Creations Poteet Strawberry Ice Cream at the store on North Lamar at Rundberg. They're selling it for $3.99, which is a buck less than Blue Bell. Not a bad deal at all.

Speaking of deals, I went garage sale hopping this afternoon and bought two Guayabera shirts for a buck. This is probably the nicest day for a garage sale we'll have all year. It's not too hot and there's not a cloud in the sky.

The pope's passing this afternoon mercifully ended the ghoulish 24-hour death watch coverage. Although I didn't agree with a lot of JPII's pronouncements and actions, I think the balance of history will ultimately tip in his favor as far as popes go. His role in helping to end the Cold War in a manner that didn't involve all of us getting blown up shouldn't be underestimated. Sadly, I'm betting the next pope will make JPII seem like Noam Chomsky by comparison.

Amid all the photogenic funeral and new pope selection coverage, be sure to keep your eyes on the White House and Congress, who'll probably try to do something screwy while no one's looking.

Terri R. scored some at Central Market and graciously shared it with CP and me; I felt like I had finally gotten the 'good shit' from my dealer! You weren't kidding about this ice cream--I'm on a Poteet Strawberry Festival Creamy Creations high and I never want to come down...I'm seeing colors I never knew existed, man! Far out.

the pope's death ended the death watch, but then the CORPSE WATCH began... 24/7 Vaticanosity. make it stop! make it stop!

when the Dalai Lama dies, how much coverage will there be?
