The cookie monster is so passe. It’s all about the gelato monster these days, and I’m willing to accept the position!
I headed into Hildesheim this afternoon to get my work details (I’ll be getting up at 4 AM to get to the hospital for those 6AM early shifts and will be working until 10PM for those late shifts – as well as through the night, for those graveyard shifts! It’s forty hours per week, but they’re forty weird ones!)
But, of course, I had to stop by the Eiscafe Venezia before I could get myself over to the hospital.
It was so hot that all the gelato looked pretty close to melting! I had a hard time choosing between 3 flavors (hazelnut, cookies, and strawberry), but finally I chose…all three!
Yum. And, just because it’s so delicious, here’s another pic:
I managed to stay clean during consumption of the frozen goodness, however, and arrived at the hospital with my white blouse (I know, I was blatantly tempting fate) as clean as ever. Miracle!
My first day of work is Monday. I’m a little bit nervous, I have to admit…*Secret* I’m really, really bad with vomit. Like deathly afraid of it. And yet I’m working in the cancer section – oh boy. I can see this going badly (or well? Are unpaid 40-hours-per-week-with-no-vacation-and-only-one-sick-day-all-fall interns maybe excused from vomit clean up? I know we have to deal with fecal incidents, but as long as there’s no vomit…)
Anyway, onto something less frightening:
Before I left, I snacked on some juicy, juicy melon with quark.
Have I mentioned that I looooove quark?
What’s your biggest fear?
Do you prefer gelato, ice cream, frozen yogurt, or shaved ice?
What ice cream flavor do you either (a) wish existed, or (b) really want to try?
