We All Scream and Then We Have Ice-Cream....

Consider this a public service announcement to any who would like to indulge themselves. You know I don't usually promote much here but this seemed life and death. At any given time some of you might have PMS. You could be in chocolate or coffee withdrawls. You could become armed and dangerous or you might know someone in the aforementioned desperate situation. Consider this "Emergency Response." Think of me as the Red Cross or your friendly Hostage Negotiator swooping in to ruin save you.

Until July 19, 2009, Starbucks is giving away coupons for pints of ice-cream to Facebook users. 800 every hour. Yes, that's right. And all you have to do is go to Starbucks Ice Cream Giveaway (you MAY have to link through Facebook if this gives you fits). You can nominate anyone - but JUST one - to receive this coupon and here's the TRULY decadent part: you can nominate yourself. Abraham Lincoln said, "We meet ourselves in adversity." I say we meet ourselves when we have to decide if a friend should get free ice-cream or we should.

This could prove to be a Solomonic decision for you. I won't ask any questions.

  3. hello! I was just thinking of you today.
    I did the facebook starbucks coupon a couple of weeks ago and sent it to my friend to whom starbucks is like a drug ;) then I called her so she could send herself one.

    I have their icecream in the freezer but haven't tried it yet. I got hot chocolate

  4. And this is supposed to help me... HOW?
    You are a cruel, cruel woman, tempting me like this when you know that all I ever get in this bloody country is chips!!
    The Lord's chips I grant you... but they aren't sweet and creamy like ice cream!
    I can feel my eagle powers depleting even as I speak...

  5. I propose that 'Pringles' (doe you have them?) should have a government health warning of addiction ~ Ice cream? well! that's really cool as well! ~ Eddie
    Nice to see you again

  6. I'm lucky-I don't like coffee, so I can nominate my sister and look all selfless. On the other hand, if it was a Ben and Jerry's giveaway she'd totally be out of luck!

  9. Oh Robynn you have made my day. I don't have PMS as an excuse, just the pure love of ice cream and I adore Starbucks but I can't afford it. Thank you, thank you for your public service.
    P.S. - If you're on Facebook, please add me as a friend.

  13. I don't "do" Starbucks (there are hardly any around here) but you made me crave ice cream now. Or coffee. Or both. I'll have to go for the coffee, because I'm trying to loose the weight I put on while on holliday. On second thoughts, I don't feel like coffee. WHAAAA! OMG YOU MADE ME CRAVE ICECREAM!!

  14. Do they have any flavors that don't include coffee?

    If they don't I'll just nominate you!

  20. Robynn, I did the right thing. I nominated *you* and not myself. I adore ice cream but have trouble stopping once I get started which may be a clue as to why my rear end is as big as a bus ;- )
