For LoW's Eyes Only!

Why are you reading this post? Didn't you get the memo?

For LoW's eyes only!

If you wanna be a big creepy fly on my wall and listen in on my private conversations then go to my Facebook.

But since you're already here I have to tell you something Andrea @ Blogging Mama said in my comment box after she read my last post. She told me she hopes my stone cold heart melts into an ice cream float.

That's the nicest thing anyone has ever hoped for me.

And it made me realize that if I utilize my dyslexia I can turn my stone cold heart into a Cold Stone heart!?

I'm just thinking about how different life would be if my heart pumped Cheesecake Fantasy or Cookie Mintster. (As long as it doesn't pump Cookie Spinster. I was a spinster in a play for the Relief Society birthday party last week--had to play one of the good virgins. (YAWNERS!) Been there/done that, which is probably why my heart turned to stone in the first place.)

Anyway, loving my new creamy dyslexic identity.

Okay, now bug off will ya, I need to talk to LoW alone.

LoW, remember how you told me you watched that documentary about Matsumoto shave ice with the vanilla ice cream and the sugar soaked Japanese beans?

And remember how you told me you've been obsessive/compulsively fixated on Matsumoto shave ice ever since?

And remember how you told me you're just using me to vicariously live out your fantasy of one day tasting a Matsumoto shave ice for yourself?

Well, live oh live away, girlfriend, cuz I got you one for your birthday! (When's your birthday again?)

And for only fifty cents extra those Matsumoto girlz will drizzle thick sweetened condensed milk all over the top.


So take my hand and let me walk you through the Matsumoto experience.

That's my hub standing in the uber long line for YOU.

It's always always crowded! But we braved it for YOU.

My hub paid, but my mom treated YOU.

This is what my crazy SIL did when she bit into the beans.

I told you she was weird.

P.S. I got my first photo request as a famous person today.

It was from from Swirl's mom who is visiting from Washington D.C. She is trying to get her daughter, Emily and her DIL, Amanda to break the commandments and covet her proximity to the Crash Test Dummy.

Emily and Amanda . . . not to be rude but . . . eat your heart out!

Your mom was indeed within close proximity. May I present the photographic evidence:

(btw, I threw the autograph in for free. (You're welcome))

Swirl's mom, Martha, Me and Swirl

The Nani Nani Boo Boo was your mom's idea.

Oh, and Martha was Martha's idea.

OhmyGOSH!! Thank you!!! Thanks Crash's hubby, thanks Crash's Ma, thanks Crash!!!!

That is truly the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for me!!!

And seriously, WITH beans?!?!?!

You all are THE BEST!!!!!

Today I love you more and I already thought I loved you plenty!

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

Lovely post. So you melted huh? That's good, always better to be melted (or iced and shaved?)
(thanks for the shout, you're so sweet.)

It looks delish but BEANS? Please explain for us non Matsumoto (?) people.

Sandi said...

Oh yes Kasey dear, I need to be there NOW! I like mine without the beans, however. Extra cream please. and throw in a tee shirt too. Love the pic, you girls are CUTE. The nani nani boo boo is precious. Oh my I am going to be having a craving all day long. And plus I'm going to add you on facebook so I can be a fly on the wall :)
oh and Kasey- Yay for being 1st!!

aniC said...

i totally listened in on your conversation. because i'm LoW's little sister, and that's what little sisters are supposed to do. and now i'm going to go and tell my mom what you two were talking about and that LoW is in looooOOOOOOooooooovve.

Sandi said...

P.S. You forgot to show your hubby ONLY telling them how many, NOT what flavor, because that is very very important there, and believe me, those cute little Matsumoto's chicks can get down right mean if you do it wrong!

I feel like such a vouyer right now for reading LoWs only post!

ohhhh your giving me good word veri again today i get

Melanie J said...

Look, I don't want to contribute to anyone's covetousnous (why doesn't that look right?), husbnd liked the Matsumoto shave ice he had in Hawaii so well that he and my BIL bought the exact same machine. And weirdly, there's an old fashioned ice house right across the street from us. Brewster's Ice. I could take a picture of it from my front window.

And he totally makes it with ice cream underneath and condensed milk (mixed with heavy cream) on top and he makes yummy flavors (but he'll only give you the passion fruit flavor if you're "in" with him). And we can have it whenever I want. And you can't have it if you call it shaved ice. And he makes his syrups from scratch because that's the "right" way.

He's odd. I love him.

I am LoW said...

Melanie- Beans???

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

I think you need to add Miley Cyruses FLY ON THE WALL song for this special day...

Because I kept reading I did!

YOu are SOOO lucky!

But there isn't a thing you could do to make me eat beans in ice cream...bleh...unless it's vanilla bean specks...I'm good with that!

Youngblood4ever said...

SO, I had to ditch out yesterday on visiting your blog because I am the most gullible person in the world. Maybe I'll actually blog about it tomorrow.

Was it actually good? Beans in ice cream. That seems totally wrong to me!

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Wow melanie, color you lucky. I does all look so wonderful. And Yummy. This is awesome if have a whole bunch of great posts to entertain us with.

Amanda said...

Since I wasn't suppose to be peeking, I did not see the picture of you and my MIL ;P So I'm not the least bit jealous!

Heidi Ashworth said...

The only person I know skinnier than you is TAMN.

robin said...

beans in shaved ice??? that's a little weird for me but I'll take the shaved ice part please!!!

I am LoW said...

I imagine the beans in the shaved ice and ice cream combo being like Ben & Jerry's Chubby Hubby- something you wouldn't have thought of been when you try it, you are hooked.

Sandi said...

I want me some chubby hubby. haha
I love that you grossed Wolfgang out.

Anjeny said...

OMG Crash..ur WV says "covet", seriousy. That totally describe what everyone is feeling right now with you and your shave ice and Swirl's mom in close proximity with you. I swear your WV is in total zinc with ya, or whatever you call it.

So whose idea was it about the beans in the shave ice? I've never heard of it done like that, do they actually put beans in the shave ice along with all the good stuff? Now I'm so tempted to drive over there right now just to try that out.

By the way, I did not read one sing word or letter of this post, I'm just psychic...eheheh

Jason said...

Irony I went and got shaved ice today after swimming with the sharks at North Shore Island Adventure... Loved it..

I am LoW said...

From what I saw about 8 years ago on TV about Matsumoto is the beans go at the bottom of the cone. Am I right Crash???

I am seriously thinking about making some sweet beans and shaving some ice and mixing it with ice cream and sweetened condensed milk!!!! :-D

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Hi everyone!

Okay, I only have a sec, but I have to say that beans in shave ice is not my fav. I've never tried it before. I only did it for LoW. That's how devoted I am to my peeps. They put the ice cream in first and then the beans. I think it's an acquired taste, but it ain't bad!

Lynita Rogers said...

Hey crazy crash, Don't you have at least one FLATTERING picture of me? :D btw: those beans were disgusting

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Yay for Kute Kasey for being first.

And Boo on Wolfgang for not liking beans in his ice cream. hee hee

But Yaya for Wolfgang for being second.

Hee hee LoW did you love that post? I wish I could send you a shave ice through the mail.

Andrea, ha ha about better to be shaved. Ain't that the truth.

Sandi, I wish I could send you a Matsumoto shave ice too. Hey, when are you coming to Hawaii so I can meet you and we can go to Pizza Bob's and Matsumotos and hang out and be best friends.

Let's have a slumber party with you and KK and Martha and Swirl and Anjeny and Mariko . . .

Ha ha AniC, you're such a tattle tell. No wonder you look like you're twelve years old.

Melanie I can't believe it about your husband. How cute it that. That is so cute. And strange. And cute. And odd. No wonder you love him.

Hi Georgie!

Ha ha Shelle, that is such a good idea about the fly on the wall song. I would totally do that if I didn't hate that song so much. '

Youngblood, I don't have a clue what you're talking about so I do hope you blog about it tomorrow so I can see the light.

Amanda, ha ha ha. I'm so glad you didn't see that picture because you would have broken some commandments if you had.

Anjeny that is CRAZY that my word verifier says covet. My word verifier is da bomb! It's like the psychic hotline.

OMGOSH, did everybody see Jason? He's my student. Don't you think I should give him some extra credit for commenting on my blog? And following too! YAY JASON!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Ha ha Lynita. I do have a flattering photo of you yawning your face off. hee hee. I'll post that tonight.

SWIRL said...

Thanks CRASH! You are a rock star!
Had to check out the photo!
luv it!

Martha said...

I didn't read the post, I only looked at the pictures. So that doesn't count.

If you didn't want me in the picture, then why the heck did you invite me? Fine just blacken out my face if you don't want me in the shot. Man, again no more pasta salad or strawberry - rasberry - banana - orange juice smoothies for you!!

What was that about you never posting your hubby's pic on the blog. Opps, I'm telling. Nani nani boo boo.
