Hi, internets!

Aaaaand, we're back. I've bee n away from a net connection for over 24 hours, and yet, have not exploded. Probably. Now I must go through the various LJ comments and e-mails which demand my attention - if you've been waiting on me to reply to something, I apologize - I expected to at least have net access at work's activity day in Hockley Valley today.

Last night I went to a fantastic workshop with the always wonderful corbet, and got home late enough that I went straight to bed.

This morning, I drove up to Orangeville for running around a resort with work people.

On the way home, I stopped off and got myself a load of wine, and PVL whey cooler protein powder (initial review - no, I cannot just toss it in a nalgene and shake), which I'm hoping to use to supplement my diet at KScope.

In other news, it is very very good to be home, and to have the company of those I care most about.

well, you *can*, but you have to shake it a lot (i shook mine by hand this morning). part of the trick is, compile and shake immediately - don't let it sit at all, because the layer of powder in contact with the liquid *will* start to bond into chunks :)

what flavour did you pick up?

(and if it wasn't going to be packed and en route to pennsic with me almost immediately after the Kscope weekend, i'd offer you my 2-speed hand-cranked blender, which clamps to a picnic table and makes ALL the nasty chunky bits go away ;-)

Hmm. I will have to experiment more, then.

I got the lemon-lime flavour - the only one they had in stock in the big containers. I also grabbed a couple of the single serving pouches of the peach flavour so Icould try that out, too. Thankfully, I liked the lemon lime I tried last night. I was tempted, as my next shopping stop was the LCBO clearance centre in the same plaza, to buy some lemoncello for mixing, but a sudden attack of restraint stayed my hand.

My back up plan, if I can't convince it to hand shake mix, is to just pre-mix a big batch and take five or so water bottles worth with me. Though I suppose I should be sure to test out what happens if I let it sit in a cool place for a day or so first, in case it settles out or something.

warning - it will most definitely settle. but as long as you reshake it before consuming, you should be fine.

we have two GNC stores here in KW that carry it on a regular basis, if you want me to look for specific flavours, i will, and can send them into TO with Tribe Courier Service :)

From what I've seen, the only flavours that interest me are the lemon-lime and the peach. I think the supplies I've got now will be enough for the time being - I'm mostly consuming the stuff on weekends, rather than daily, and I'll probably stick with the regular whey gourment most of the time. Thanks for the offer though.

Do let me know if you come up with anything interesting to mix with it though.

Heh, you could have stopped in at the Hockley brewery -- decent beer. My Mom's just moved around the corner, B.'s tending horses now.

A little bit cooler than in the city, I warrent (ye poor swabs).

Mmm, Hockley Dark.

It was, actually, horribly hot and muggy, even up there. But less hazy.

I had a wonderful time! And arg, it occurred to me afterward that I forgot to bring the iPod I promised to loan you. Arg, arg, and triple arg! So sorry. :(

And also, glad you had a great Pride. :)
Jun. 27th, 2006 02:44 am (UTC)
Heh, yeah, that occured to me the next day. No worries - I'll find some way for you to make it up to me. :)

I'm glad Pride went well for you, too. In some ways, Pride was as mind-opening an experience for me as TOKink was. Life is strange and wonderful.
