What to buy, what to buy...
You guys! I *finally* got my Amazon gift card in the mail today! (Thank you, credit card points!) Now I feel like a kid in a candy store and don't know *what* I want the most.

Hrm. Along with the things I'm already thinking of, anyone have any suggestions?

In other things, two questions which occurred to me today:

1) Why is Giant's chocolate ice cream so tasty? It's so, so...chocolatey! I even kind of prefer it to Breyer's.

and

2) Why does my silver-plated spoon go through even the most frozen ice cream like a hot knife through butter? Is it the composition of the silver? Or is it because silver is sturdier than most silverware metals? This is a mystery to me - all I know is that it sure works for scooping ice cream!

I never heard of Giant brand ice cream, where do they sell that?

It's the brand of the Giant grocery stores. They have them around here...maybe not where you are?

Ah-ha, well that explains it! I'm from the East Coast - currently living in the DC area. I think Giant is more of a mid-to-south East Coast thing. :)

Anyway, for some reason their chocolate ice cream is REALLY GOOD. I got some cookies and cream this time, too. We shall see how it is.

must be a mid to south east thing because I used to live in NY and New England and they don't have Giant grocery stores there either. I love chocolate ice cream but you probably already guessed that from my screen name.

I would never have guessed!

I'm a big chocolate fan, too. :)

How about this?
No, I dunno what exactly is up with that either... but there is no way that it won't be awesome. *g*

Grah, it's almost 11pm, and now I want icecream. D;

OMG, WHUT? Aieeee, zombies!

Well, I've eaten ice cream at worse times than that. :)

We use a silver spoon for our ice cream too. Silver is way sturdier than the crappy stuff regular spoons are made of. It's funny how ice cream, which we picture as being soft and creamy, is the most likely thing to bend the hell out of spoons XD

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one. Heh.

Which type of credit card do you have?

And yes, I love supermarket-brand ice cream. I love Avalanche from Mars.

It's called "Elite Rewards". I'm not entirely sure it's available anymore, because my bank got taken over by another bank and I don't know if they offer it now...

I was just curious. Stupid bank takeovers.

But your post inspired me to look at the rewards on my own card (Bank of America Visa, Hello Kitty, oh yeah, that's right) and it does offer Amazon and Barnes and Noble gift cards, which is a tad exciting. :3

Awesome! Free stuff is always great.
