Emergency preparedness, now with ice cream

Many thanks to the pretty Melissa for alerting me to this sale on emergency preparedness items. Now, I’m not thrilled about using hype and scare tactics to get people to buy things (*cough* *cough* bird flu food supply *cough* *cough*), but they have an excellent price on astronaut ice cream. I can’t seem to figure out how much shipping is without going through the entire process, and I’m feeling too lazy to do that, but hey—if you’re stocking up on MREs in anticipation of the apocalypse, might as well grab some ice cream while you’re there. Right?

    Oh man, I HAVE to stay away from sites like that or I get quickly sucked into them. I always want to be prepared for everything and anything, but keeping a year’s supply of freeze-dried meals is going a bit to far. Or is it? I don’t know! I don’t want to be stuck without food for my family one day, but really, what is the chance that we will be without food for 6-12 months? Oh man, see, I told you I have to refrain from sites like this. Since these meals have a 5-10 year expiration, what do you do after 5 years? Do you eat freeze-dried food for 6 months? Yuck.

    I LOVE the astronaut ice cream. I had it at a museum when I was a kid–got it in the gift shop. It was sooo good.

    Just when I thought I had dealt with my pandemic panic. Yikes! People like this prey on people who, unlike me, can’t deal with their paranoia.
