I promise this isn't about how I can see Russia from my house/hotel/corporate housing...Oh no this is far better. Earlier this week I had a conversation with my mom about how I wanted to go to Russia (she went there back in her hippie days...sorry mom I outed you for being a hippie!!) and how fantastic it would be. Fast forward a few days.

Next up are the Creme Rolls (I could be making the name up, but I do recall it having something to do with Creme and Rolls). They are flaking round shells filled with heavy whipping cream that are then frozen. They came in a variety of flavors but all you really need to know is that they are awesome...that's the flavor. AWESOME!
I'm pretty sure I'll need to be airlifted out of here thanks to the Russian Baker and Alaska Coffee Roasters.
After stuffing my face with several (I lost count) creme rolls I went to see For Colored Girls. Let me tell you, going into it I was hesitant due to the less than spectacular reviews that I read about it. But, I was beyond impressed, fantastic movie! And now that I think about it, most of the reviewers were probably old white men, so yeah perhaps they wouldn't be so thrilled with the flik. If you trust my movie judgement, go see it, I was blown away!
On to what has recently become my favorite part of Alaska...WTF (it's almost like the Kit Kat hunt in Japan, I'm on a WTF hunt here). I have to admit, my list is a bit small, I've been "hibernating" a bit in my free time...it's getting cold people...and dark!
