3 rants and a rave-Bizarro World Edition

Remember when Superman and his friends went to Bizarro World and everything was backwards? Yeah, me neither, but I do remember Bizarro Jerry and Bizarro George on Seinfeld. This is 3 rants and a rave-Bizarro World edition...that means its 3 raves and a rant~!

Rave 1: Trader Joes Tea Tree Tingle-Body Wash so pepperminty-fresh you'll want to avoid it at night...it will wake you up too much. And yes...it will tingle.

Rave 2: Peppermint Stick ice cream. This is my favorite Holiday flavor. Apple pie ice cream is good. Pumpkin Pie ice cream is good. Egg-nog ice cream is gross. But peppermint...Peppermint, is the BEST! A Peppermint Tin-Roof Sundae is even better. I *think* we're going to make homemade peppermint stick ice cream and homemade waffle bowls for treats to take to friends and neighbors for Christmas this year...maybe... if the price of milk doesn't go any higher.

Rave 3: Burts Bees Lip Balm. uh...yeah...(*embarrassed*) this one is Peppermint too. What can I say? I LOVE peppermint! But the Peppermint isn't the best part of Burts Bees Lip Balm! Its the...oh, ok, its the peppermint.

Rant:Its Christmas Season, what's to rant about? (I'm sure I'll think of something later).
**I thought of something. Where does WalMart get off selling toddler size Christmas dresses for 37.45? If I wanted to spend 37+ dollars on a Christmas dress for my 2 year old, trust me, I would have gone to Nordstrom.

I LOVE peppermint. And peppermint ice cream is also one of my holiday favorites. And who does not love a peppermint tin roof sundae? Bath and Body Works has a peppermint hand soap out for the holidays. Love it. I make peppermint bars (like brownies, but minty and frosted with peppermint frosting) I have a recipe to try for peppermint cookies that look much like a small version of the bars. I could clearly go on ...

Are we related, or something?

(WV= fooch I think it speaks for itself.)

My first peppermint tin roof sundae was at Friendlys! I will never forget it.

oh, and do you remember the peppermint that grew crazy in Grandma's backyard? Apparently Grandpa had planted it years and years before, but it came back every spring, no matter what. It continued to come back when the girls and I lived in Grandma's house.

OK, here's something funny and crude. With your love of peppermint you may very well know this already. In GoodHouse Keeping magazine, of all places, several years ago, there was a story about how your hubby could put peppermints in his mouth prior to...um...um...how do I say, "pleasing you" and it would be even more...um...um..."pleasing".

Whew, I'm glad I'm anonymous!

See, there, I'm gone for a few weeks and look at what I come up with when I get back.

I do love me some pumpkin. But I also love peppermint. Delicious!

Lara said...

I always think there should be more raves than rants, anyway. Why do we need to have the negativity? :)

The Peppermint ice cream sounds divine and I so agree wtih you about the crazy prices at WalMart.

I love a scoop of peppermint ice cream in my hot cocoa. YUM!

The Copes said...

try shaking a little peppermint hot chocolate on your vanilla Ice Cream. You won't be disappointed.

That peppermint body wash sounds interesting. Very interesting.

I'm not much into peppermint for some reason. But the thought of tingle on my body. That I'm into.
