My Favorite Comfort Food

My favorite comfort food is vanilla ice cream. There are a couple of different things I put on it. Bananas are a mainstay. Not only are they tasty, they are also good for you! Ice cream certainly needs whipped cream too. That isn't healthy, but it's still good.

What else? Sometimes I put Reece's Peanut Butter cups in there. Other times chocolate syrup. And still others an apple cinnamon topping (it makes the ice cream taste like apple pie!). Never do any of those go on the ice cream at the same time. I believe it is good to have Standards.

"Sideways Stories From Wayside School" Makes Me Nostalgic

I remember reading Sideways Stories from Wayside School back in grade school. I would read a lot in those days. We had a competition to see who could read the most and I was only ever really challenged by one person. Kind of nerdy actually.

Anyway, this book is weird. The school was supposed to be built with thirty classrooms side by side, but was instead built thirty stories high (there is also no 19th floor, sort of). All the students and teachers appear to be slightly crazy, kooky at the very least and one of them turns out to be a dead rat wearing a bunch of raincoats.

Yeah, I was just as insane back then as I am today.
