Custardy Goodness... and more!
Something I was introduced to last year was one of the more exciting things to happen at my office in... maybe ever. I was introduced to the wonderful world of frozen custard. For a while I had been wondering what these little printed out calendars filled with flavors for each day were. I saw them in at least 5 other cubicles. I was finally let in on the secret. The secret of Del Ray Dreamery (which was forced by a corporate ice cream company to change its name to the Dairy Godmother). With the weather getting warmer, it is now appropriate to start planning more and more trips to this great, community place. Never before have I seen such unique flavors. This Friday is Mexican chocolate which is going to be great, but yet, I haven't seen this flavor since I left Southern California. My office pretty much can't wait for the turn of the month so we can see the new flavor calendar and start planning when we'll sneak out for a "meeting". And by meeting, I mean meeting up with delectable custard. Lo and behold, I learned on my last trip that custard is in fact healthier for me than ice cream. Who knew? The Dreamery has been one of the bright spots I've found here, and a good example of an independent business thriving and serving the community.
On another note, I've started thinking about applying to a new job. Not in a new career category, I'm too big of a pansy to take on that risk. No, I'm thinking about switching from the Government to private industry. So on that note, since I haven't been able to find any info on this, I am asking for help. How much will a contract specialist with a clearance make in this area? Spread out your feelers and get me this info. I need to figure out if it is really the financial windfall I think it will be.
