I’m pretty sure I’m still sugar-buzzing from all this ice cream Ryan and I had last night on our romantic date. Funny story, I didn’t hear what type of ice cream he ordered and when we sat down he asked if I wanted a bite. I said “sure, what flavor is it?” And he said “Just try it and guess”. So I took a bite and totally knew the flavor but couldn’t identify it. “Oh I know this one, it’s RUM flavor…ice…cream. Is that right?” He laughed and said it’s actually coconut flavor. I smelled it, sure enough, coconut. “Ah yes, it reminds me of Cuba, that’s why.” So basically coconut tastes like rum to me because the only context I’ve ever really tasted it is in piña coladas. Classy.

Anyway enough about my alcoholism, here are ten billion links.
