I dig those too.. The minty minty chocolate is a good thing.

But yeah... psychologically, I prefer the green ice cream.
I dunno what it is...

Re:
for me, i think it was b/c when i had mint choc chip ice cream, which was a big treat...it was this devine shade of green.

so now...even though i know for fact that it is dyed that color, it just gives me the happies. i mean, it's what it's supposed to look like...

Hey, you're a theatre person. You know things have to look the way they don't, actually, to look right.

Actually, being a former props mistress I can tell you that most of the time things have to look exactly how they really look in order to look right.

Were you ever actually involved in the tech side of theatre, Dave or do you just go to the shows?

Did some general theatre stuff and a full year of lighing in college. In fact, that influenced my comment, as you do not use the actual color of firelight to indicate firelight, as it looks wrong on stage.

But this may just be a lighting thing.

Lighting is more akin to painting than it is to any other craft in the theatre. I've had arguments with lighting techs about the textures of fabrics I used in certain furniture pieces becuase of their light absorbancy qualities.
No really...

Some set piece work is mostly illusion, but for the most part scale is the only determining factor in how off from reality something is.

Just my experience.
Maybe you're right.
Ya know, in fact .. you probably are. You're right about most things, aren't you?

I am? Gosh. Could you tell some of the people here?

In this case, I'm am actually leaning on the rightness of my lighing teacher, and, since he was technical director for the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts and (more importantly) the guy who redesigned all the lights at Century-Strand when tungsten-halogen lamps became the standard, I tend to believe him.

Even *I* wouldn't be that sarcastic about you to your family. That would just be rude.

Did you actually learn anything from the guy beyond his resume?

Actually, I did. Unfortunately, since I haven't done anything with it in 15 years or so, most of it is just buried somewhere in my brain and only comes out at times like this.

And I appreciate your respect for my family.

Influenced by this very entry, I went out this evening and purchased a half-gallon of Dreyer's mint chocolate chip ice cream. And, I hate to admit it, but this stuff sucks. When it gets melty, you can practically SEE the gelatin in there holding it together.

Breyer's is infinitely more yummy. So's Haagen-Dasz, for that matter.

That has *nothing* to do with the greeness or the mintness.
You just happened to pick a nasty brand. Edy's has a decent green mint. So does Turkey Hill (which you may not have up there).

Haagen-Daz is overrated. Yes, you saw right. Haagen-Daz is overrated.

Try to find a local small place that makes ice cream, preferrably one at a farmer's market attached to a dairy farm. I'd send you some ice cream from Bergy's Dairy, but uh .. it wouldn't hold up well.

I think this may be one of those... mostly in the south things. The ice cream thing. I've found most people from places that aren't the south and aren't wisconsin enjoy some horrendously bad slop and call it good ice cream.
