Humphry Slocombe (San Francisco, CA) - I’ve been to Humphry a long time ago when they weren’t even in the Ferry Building. That time I didn’t try anything since most of the flavors that were appealing had alcohol in them and the non ones didn’t seem appetizing to me. But since we were here, I wanted to show my sister their fun flavors and I really wanted to try the ice cream for myself. 

Initially, I was debating between chocolate or the peanut butter one but I decided to be more adventurous. First, I sampled the cayenne cantaloupe, which wasn’t bad. I actually hate cantaloupe but I wanted to see what it was about. It tasted like a cantaloupe, but then you feel the heat of the cayenne in the after taste. In the end, I got the Horchata ice cream! I’ve never had Horchata before this, but I’ve been meaning to try that anyway. It literally tastes like a liquid churro to me. Amazing. It was so nice and creamy and you could feel the texture of the nuts in each taste. Horchata is a beverage from Latin America and Spain, made with several different ingredients ranging from ground almonds, sesame seeds, rice, barley, or tigernuts (chufas) depending on the country. 

The guy who was helping me put a huge heaping of ice cream, so it was worth the price of a single scoop. I wanted to be all cool so I got a cone, but that was a bad idea for me. I am too clumsy to handle a cone, apparently. It was also because I was in the sun so of course my ice cream started to melt, but I dropped it everywhere. Still totally worth it though. 

Delicious almondy liquid churro a.k.a. Horchata was a win.

As an horchata fiend, I am definitely trying Humphrey Slocombe soon.

I think we all know who that makes Capaldi.


This is the best thing I’ve ever seen in my life.

The Final Doctor’s Order - General Hospital


My first column on General Hospital for All My Writers, then Eye on Soaps, went up in March of 2006. Today, 8 years later, marks my last one. I lived in denial for most of the last year that it would come to this…but it has. Ending the column has nothing to do with the show, which I enjoy more than 80% of the time. It has everything to do with a lack of time due to my various other writing gigs and my desire to go back to just having fun with the show rather than critiquing it. And thus, I bid the Doctor’s Order, called This Week’s Specials in its first incarnation, adieu.

How do I end a long-running commentary column like this one? With a return to that first column and some thoughts on how little, and how much, the show has changed.

2006 Becca writes,

“I’ve always had a few storylines that I’d love to see play out and Jason regaining his entire memory is a big one of those.  Of course, I didn’t get that, but I was drawn in long enough to fall for Courtney and Nikolas and laugh my booty off at the Luke/Tracy pairing.”

First off, this Luke and Tracy tug-of-war has lasted that long?!

Forever on my bucket list.

On the Glee spoilers…I just expect to laugh at the ridiculousness of it all, hopefully with some good dark humor jabs in the mix. And listen to fun music. Blaine and the Warblers!


I came to this video by way of THIS POST.  Thank you, holy shit.
