Cure for the Common Job Hunt (Part 2)

-since my last post, I've gotten a call about one job where I would get to speak French (yay!) and another job where I would be doing the same thing as the first job only no francophonie.  Also, the pay would be a lot worse.  However, as these things often go, I won't hear a formal response from the first job until Monday, which is also the day I would have to start the second job.  So, I'm officially starting a job Monday, but I (hopefully) might not be there long.  Cross your fingers for me. 

-did I mention we got an ice cream maker for Christmas?  Well we did, and part of my wide-open, employment-free days these past few weeks were spent making ice cream.  Lots and lots of ice cream.  We have successfully produced peppermint stick, chocolate-chocolate peanut butter swirl, vanilla, coffee-chocolate peanut butter, graham cracker s'more, and blueberry-raspberry chocolate chunk.  We have less successfully produced root beer-vanilla-spice-cake-chunk...surprise? and licorice.  This last failure makes me very sad as licorice ice cream is one of my very favorite gastronomical phenomenon.  We had even purchased this:

Hello family in Finland!!

so as to make the ice cream super authentic.  (what!?! just FOUND that in a fancy kitchen store!  Just SITTING there!)  Sadly, real Finnish licorice does not instantly real Finnish licorice ice cream make.

Luckily, there was some of that chocolate-peanut butter swirl left over to soothe my Sunday night blues.  Wish me luck for tomorrow, I'm nervous!

Probably failed because your Finnish liquorice is missing it's main ingredient of floor cleaner.
