Ice cream freezers, dairy aisles...I'd find a reason to go every day...convince a store manager to let me sit in the walk in freezer...

I'm doing my weekly shop tomorrow. Usually I hate going down the freezer aisles - but not this week!

I'm thinking of throwing a couple burgers on the grill while watching Kill Bill.

Same here. Our mayor signed a contract with Comcast that makes it a losing proposition for Verizon to even wire Boston for Fios. Only the richer sections of the city can get it.

We have central air in the house. 78 and dry feels too good to leave to go outside anywhere. Besides, I have to buy cold items. Even with a cooler and bottles of ice (I freeze old not-quite-2 quart juice bottles) I'm afraid my ice cream will melt and my steak will cook on the drive home. I've now decided to go Saturday because Friday is supposed to be 97-98 . Hoping I can beat any thunderstorms home. Nothing like loading groceries into the trunk while it's pouring. Sometimes I miss my van.
