Writing a daily blog isn’t always easy.
Sometimes there’s not enough time in the day. Often there’s loads of time, but no ideas rolling around inside my head.
Today was the latter.
But just when my thoughts were beginning to jell, movie critic Richard Roeper posted this photo to his Twitter feed:
I had such a sugar rush, I might as well have really eaten them.
They are from Do Rite Donuts in Chicago. Guess where I’m headed next time I blow into town?

Thanksgiving was a travel day for Lou, Rory and me.
Train, plane and rental car brought us to Montauk this afternoon. After we settled into our cottage, Lou and I enjoyed a holiday feast at Harvest on Fort Pond.
Yes, I think we’re gonna like it here.

Lately, I have been craving Pringles.
This vintage TV commercial makes them look even better.
You go, Brad.

Did you know that 93 percent of facts are made up?
Maybe not…but I believe this chart is SPOT. ON.
Anyone else really hungry right now?

I was sitting at my desk today and wondered –
Does the rebus still exist?
I loved solving this picture puzzle as a kid, so I Googled it…and was relieved to discover that rebuses are alive and well and all over the Internet. In kids games. In artwork. Even in one advice column where the answers are provided in rebus format.
But my favorite rebus discovery was Narragansett Beer — they’re using the rebus as part of their advertising campaign. In fact, they have an entire page on their website devoted to rebuses.
Here are a couple of my favs. See if you can solve them.
The answers — and 62 more rebuses — are on their site.

Hey Bloomberg, before you go:
Is this size Coca-Cola allowed here in New York City?
Gotcha — it’s chalk art!
Pretty realistic, huh?

I just learned that improvised dance is called ‘danceprov.’
I didn’t know the art form existed…and certainly wouldn’t have guessed at that name.
So does it follow then that stream of consciousness writing is…’writeprov?’
Spur-of-the-moment shopping is…’spendprov?’
Snacking when you’re bored is…’bingeprov?’
Sketching on a napkin is…’doodleprov?’
Writing your daily blog when you don’t have a topic is…

Well, I did it. I bought a whole watermelon at the store.
And now I have five pounds of regret in my refrigerator.
I usually spring for the over-priced containers of pre-sliced melon. I know they are gouging me, but it’s convenient…and I can eat that much.
Sure, that monstrosity in my frig was a bargain, but once I cut it — I’m gonna have to eat it all…or end up throwing half of it way.
Guess what I’m having for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next few days?

“But I’d like the pie heated and I don’t want the ice cream on top, I want it on the side, and I’d like strawberry instead of vanilla if you have it, if not then no ice cream just whipped cream but only if it’s real; if it’s out of the can then nothing.“
– Sally, When Harry Met Sally
Happy National Ice Cream Day!
