Thinking Out Loud 3.3.16



A lululemon outlet store opened here on Long Island and I still haven’t gone to check it out. Sarah told me about the opening weeks ago so what is taking me so long, I am not sure.

Remember how I used to go to Friendly’s every so often for the 12-scoop Crowd Pleaser sundae? Well we haven’t shared one of these sundaes in almost a year now so my son and I decided that we will get one to celebrate the last day of Hebrew school in May.

Friendly's Crowd Pleaser Sundae

How awesome is this sundae? This one is from last April when we last shared it at Friendly’s, after the last regular season Islanders home game. Feels like yesterday.

We like to order this Crowd Pleaser Sundae to celebrate something and the last day of Hebrew school is a huge deal worth celebrating. Especially for me, the mother who has dragged her son to the darn class at least once a week, if not twice a week some years since the third grade.

Did you hear about the guy who legally changed his name to Bacon Double Cheeseburger? We can’t stop talking about it around my house. Not only do we laugh about it, we keep trying to come up with our food names of choice should we ever be crazy enough to legally change our name.

Here’s my list, tell me what you think:

Miss Caramel Latte (Isn’t Caramel a pretty first name?!)

Miss Boston Cream-Pie (I thought the hyphen was cute — Ms. Cream-Pie)

Miss Chocolate Cupcake (Call me CC for short)

I haven’t taken many pictures of anything this week but while finishing my run the other day I noticed MapMyRun updated itself and now displays all important details on the main screen. And even better, when I snapped this photo, it says I was going pretty fast.


I ignore the calorie counts by the way. I don’t even know what I weigh, I don’t even know what weight MapMyRun is set for, and, I don’t believe the counts are accurate anyway.

My son came home from school the other day to tell me that he got in trouble in English class and won’t be allowed to use the computers for a week. He was caught searching the web instead of doing his English assignment on the computer.

Of course I freaked, worrying what the heck he was searching on a public school computer, didn’t I raise him better than this, was I not convincing when I said if you google the wrong thing the police, bomb squad and SWAT teams will show up with guns at our door and take him away.

Then he told me what he was googling….Sit down for this…are you sitting? Okay.

Super Tuesday and the latest news regarding the presidential debates.

Not only am I a proud parent, I am questioning the teacher’s disciplinary actions. I understand it was English class, I understand he should focus on the task at hand but come on, how many kids (let alone adults) care about our country’s politics?

A 12 scoop sundae – which flavors of ice cream would you choose? 12 different ones? Double scoops of 6 flavors? Tell me!

What would you change your name to if you could?

Are you shopping for spring/summer workout clothes yet?

    Fun fact: my name is very similar to food already. Russian calls raspberry – “malina”, so if I should change my name I would have been necessary to replace only one letter in my real name – Marina 😀

    That’s so funny what your son was searching for! Forget porn or illegal things- now they’re not allowed to stay informed about politics?! He probably doesn’t want to know what the results are anyway 😉 Please go to the lulu outlet! I want to see what it’s like and there’s none around me!

    Seriously he got in trouble with the googling? That’s insane! Ice cream sounds like the perfect way to celebrate the end of Hebrew classes. I took three semesters of Hebrew in college and definitely treated myself when it was all over! And I love the food names, especially chocolate cupcake.

    I can’t believe he got in trouble for that. Then again in 7th grade I got in trouble for not having my mom sign one of my history tests – I’d gotten 100% as I did the whole year (even then I was a history nerd). She taught me to forge her signature afterwards so she didn’t have to deal with that anymore!

    I’m actually laughing unreasonably hard at the name change thing. I have to text Jason (my ex) to see if he knows about this as it’s totally something he’d call himself. I love my name right now. Suzy Slane sounds incredibly badass. I need a black pleather catsuit.

    Your son is the cutest. That is hilarious. There are SO many more interesting things to google and that’s what he chooses? hahah a sign you raised him well. I’m interested to hear what you think of the lululemon outlet! I’m so excited to go next week.

    Oh, and I got a goldstone gift certificate yesterday for doing the most after hours requests at work and naturally thought of you.

    That ice cream looks heavenly!! I’d get 6 double scoops: chocolate chip cookie dough, mint chocolate chip, peanut butter cup, red velvet and birthday cake ice cream 🙂
