Our neighborhood just got a new gourmet ice cream sandwich shop, called "Cream." Their grand opening is today, and they're giving away free ice cream sandwiches.

The line was, like, three blocks long and basically not moving. So maybe I'll wait and tell you whether they're any good in a week or two.

Cream's been in Palo Alto for a few years, I've been there a few times. It's ok but I'd rather go to Tin Pot or Scoop if I'm in PA so it's hard to say. Their cookies are good though.

Yup. In Fremont the competition is a bit less fierce (PA has Rick's, too.) So it stands out a bit more. But yeah, it didn't live up to the two-hour line on grand opening day :-)

We went to one in Cupertino the other day, and it wasn't terribly busy, but then, it was kind of cold and gray out. It was tasty but nothing to write home (or livejournal) about. ;-)

That's about where I was on them. It seems like they're a "simple flavors are better" place -- the vanilla ice cream was slightly better than the cookies and cream.

But I definitely appreciate the "hot cookies turned into an ice cream sandwich on demand" thing. Not great if you take 'em home, but very good if eaten there.

What's up, pal.
Watcha need?

Heya! Good to see you here again!

Most of "what's up" for me lately is that the wife and kids are off on a five-month (!) road trip, so I'm quietly home working and getting along. It's very homeschooly and educational for them and a very interesting break for me. Five months is too much break all around, but it takes that long to see a high percentage of the US.

What do I need? Dunno. Motivation? I'm hitting the limits of caring about my previous foray into selling books online -- the amount of money just isn't motivational, and I'm not finding ways to turn more work into more money. I'm trying to convince myself to step up my game, and finally having a bit of success. We'll see where it leads.

How about yourself? What's up? What'cha need?
