The Inevitable Links Post

It's that time again! Not too many links, as I spent a couple of weeks immersed in Mets postseason excitement (that's my favorite baseball team, for those who don't know), but what I've got here are choice!

These Fruit Loops Oreos chocolate bowls look amazing.
Happy Birthday to everyone, thanks to Stephen Colbert.
Someone put together a compilation of all the vids from the Agents of SHIELD/Agent Carter Dubsmash Wars, and it's awesome!
A very cool art site: ArtPeopleGallery.

Chocolate Covered Peeps

Jacques Torres is one of my favorite chocolatiers, and every year, I can count on their stores having chocolate covered Peeps for Halloween. I meant to post this on Halloween, but forgot, mostly because I went to the World Series for Halloween and pretty much had baseball on my mind all last weekend. At this point, I might as well just admit this isn't a daily blog, anymore, but I do strive for weekly postings. I just don't always succeed.

Day of Chocolate

So, it's National Chocolate Day here in the US! For me, it's chocolate day everyday, but whatever. This chocolate dress might be the perfect outfit to celebrate the day, but I'd probably eat it before I could get out of my home.

Monday Morning Links

So much fun on the internet lately! Here are some things I liked.

This adorable Corgi cosplays as all the Doctors from Doctor Who.

I've been enjoying the baseball playoffs and am ecstatic that my beloved Mets are in the World Series. Here's a video from the time the 1969 Mets were on the Ed Sullivan Show.

A congressman bet on the Dodgers to beat the Mets and he lost.

Here's one reason why Jacob deGrom is one of my favorite Mets.

Some of the current Mets appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Jimmy Kimmel also presented a sequel to "Do the Right Thing."

"Iconic Movie Scenes Recreated with Balloons" is just the coolest thing.

John Oliver created this quote generator to make a point about how untrustworthy quotes are in internet memes.

Some political brilliance, in song, from Stephen Colbert.

Peter Noone recorded a song to honor John Lennon.

A wonderful collection of paper airplanes.

Cold Treats

Yes, it's been a while since I blogged here. I've been caught up in the joy of Mets playoff baseball, something that hasn't occurred in quite a while. Nine years, to be exact.

I've been meaning to post about some chocolate ice cream, and now that it's fall here in NY, and the temperatures have fallen low enough for turning on the heat indoors, why not discuss ice cream!

I recently tried, and compared, two Edy's products: chocolate Grand Ice Cream and chocolate malt Frozen Custard. The chocolate ice cream was creamy and rich and chocolicious, truly divine. The frozen custard was a bit of a disappointment, not chocolate malty enough, but I've always been more of an ice cream lover than a frozen custard lover.

I decided to try Edy's once my hubby discovered it was related to Dreyer's Ice Cream, which I'd gotten to taste while on the west coast. I loved the chocolate Dreyer's ice cream I'd tried, so I'm happy to discover its eastern version. It is confusing when the same product has different names in different parts of the same country!

Chocolate Dessert

We celebrated Rosh Hashana (New Year's on the Jewish calendar) at my sister's home, and dessert included two chocolate treats: A chocolate babka and a chocolate mousse cake. Both were wonderfully yummy.

Happy Rosh Hashana, if you celebrate! May the upcoming year be sweet!
