Proud member of the non-sequiter society

I'm thinking today might be some kind of official catch-up day for agents. I had two responses to queries I sent so long ago I couldn't even figure out which book one of them was about. They were both form rejections, not much to my surprise.

I've got a bad headache (although not as bad as it was, since I took some aspirin about two hours ago) and as a result I can't concentrate on anything more difficult than this Edward Eager book (Magic by the Lake, not one of his best). I'd planned to finish work on my novella edits--I swear I've put more hours into the edits than I put into the original writing--but I can't do it tonight. I'll have to finish tomorrow after I get home from work.

I'm wondering if it would be foolish of me to take a walk downtown, where I could buy a Nutty Buddy ice cream cone. I think a Nutty Buddy would help my headache. No, dammit, it's after eight and the store's closed. Dammit.

I never did get any ice cream. Dammit.

We don't have 'Nutty Buddy' up in these parts. I just tend to buy a vat of ice cream when it's on sale at the grocery (then the boy sneaks in and eats it all before I get any).

Good luck with the edits. Boo to form rejections!

I think Nutty Buddies are a local confection. They're not very good, to be honest, but I like them. It's the chewy cone that I love, mostly.

I think ice cream would definitely soothe a headache. Are there any other shops around that sell something similar?

Well, I could always get into my car and drive somewhere to buy ice cream. That just feels like cheating, though.
