Grey Day Blue

I had coffee this morning with a friend, and I wore one of my favorite early-spring outfits. Not too fancy, but still fun and un-drab, which I needed. The weather this week has started out every single day sunny and then gotten cloudy and cool. What's up with that?

OK, OK, I know that most fashion circles frown on the "Jesus sandal," but I haven't been able to get cute spring sandals yet! Plus, these are comfy enough to schlep around campus in. And heels just felt too formal for a campus coffee date.

Bright grey clouds make me so squinty and sleepy, which explains my face in these pictures....

But these blue roses always cheer me up!

By the way, I had lunch at my favorite Korean restaurant (which you MUST visit if you ever find yourself in central South Carolina)--yum!-- and then we went to the Asian grocery to re-stock some supplies. Now that it's getting warm, I'm totally ready for some cool yuzucha soda. It comes in a jar and looks just like marmalade, but instead of putting it on toast, you stir a spoonful into a glass of soda water, yummeh!  I also had to stop by the ice cream chest since my mouth was still a little spicy from the kimchi, and this caught my eye:

Do not adjust your monitor. Yes, those are pieces of corn in the ice cream. I swear. See?

"Sweet corn ice bar." I've had sweet corn ice cream with a blackberry swirl at a gourmet ice creap shop before, and I loved it, so I thought, "How bad could this be?" And, well, the ice cream itself was pretty tasty, but I took a good look at the bar and realized that it looked exactly like frozen mashed potatoes with corn mixed in, and after that.. well, I ended up spitting bits of corn out the car window until K took it away from me. The texture of corn just doesn't mesh well with ice cream, at least to my American palate.  Next time I'll just stick with a melon pop.  What's the weirdest dessert you've ever had?

  1. corn ice cream doesn't sound too deletable I must admit

    love the blue roses here

  2. Corn ice cream is too funny!! I had cookies with rosemary in them once, and I didn't much care for them.

    Your skirt is lovely, I hope you find some cute sandals!
