15 again

My dad is moving out of the house that he's lived in since I was 12 years old, and he recently gave me a box that had been up in his attic since 1996 - when I went to college and Mom moved to Tennessee.  In this box of goodies I found my diary from 1994.  Oh the things I wrote....

Anyways, I was leafing through the diary and a scrap of paper floated out from the back of the diary.  Apparently, in 1994 I was as much of a list maker as I am now.  I had made a list of "Ideas for a Date".  For those of you who need a few ideas for your own date night, and for those of you who are simply curious, here it is:

  1. Bowling
  2. Movies
  3. Miniature Golf
  4. Museum (hahahahha)
  5. Rent a movie
  6. Park
  7. Picnic
  8. Amusement park
  9. Dinner
  10. A Party
  11. Roller skating
  12. Ice skating
  13. Swimming
  14. Water park, sprinkler, Slip & Slide
  15. Bike riding
  16. Tie dying
  17. See a play
  18. Cafe Lena (hmmm, I don't remember this cafe)
  19. Baseball
  20. Basketball
  21. Volleyball
  22. Badminton
  23. Tennis
  24. Football
  25. Play in the rain or mud 
  26. Climb a tree
  27. Dancing - but where?
I am still chuckling (yes, even after reading it three times).  This is good stuff.  Ahh, the things that run through our head when we are 15.

Sugar addiction

I have a problem.  I'm addicted to sugar.  It seems as though all I think about these days are cookies from the Treats Truck (specifically the Peanut Butter Jamwich) and Scones from Alice's Tea Cup.  I am constantly checking to see where the Treats Truck is parked, and I've started calling Alice's Tea Cup to find out what their scones of the day are at all three locations -- just in case I decide to get scones after work I'll know which locations has the flavors I like best.  It's a sickness I tell you.  Just to make you all salivate, here are the flavors for today at all three locations:

64th St- Pumpkin, Buttermilk, Ham & Cheese, Pimento Goat cheese, Lemon blueberry, black tea fruit tea infused with chocolate chips.
81st St - Pumpkin, Buttermilk, Ham & Cheese, chocolate butterscotch, pear walnut

73rd St - Pumpkin, Buttermilk, Ham & Cheese, blackberry cream cheese, cinnamon vanilla, strawberry chocolate.

Sugar .... Goooooood.
