Not To Be Trusted With Knives











{July 7, 2008}   Adventures in Laziness

So I’m in the grocery store tonight and I see the latest innovation in the world of laziness.  Pillsbury “Ready to Bake” cookies:

This pre-made cookie dough is already portioned out into “cookie rounds,” so you just throw them onto a cookie sheet and bake.

Because, you know, baking cookies from the regular pre-made Pillsbury cookie dough:

… where you have a tube of o’dough that you have to take 5.2 seconds to cut the dough into “rounds” before you throw them on a cookie sheet… well, that’s just too insurmountable a task.

In the interest of full disclosure, I’d like to say that I’m much more in favour of eating cookie dough raw than I am of baking the dough into cookies proper and, compared to my homemade dough especially, Pillsbury cookie dough raw is barf-tastic.  That’s right, I said it.

{July 7, 2008}   Happy 7/7!

Although not as exciting as last year’s 7/7/7 date1, today is 7/7.

7/7/8 to be exact. Which just so happens to be my area code2.

And this is my blog posting #779.  I noticed the other day that I was on posting #777, which would have been cool to have posted on 7/7, but I have this crazy idea about wanting to publish at least one blog posting every day3, so it just wasn’t possible.

Today’s blog posting has, paradoxically, been brought to you by the number 104.

1Which, apparently I didn’t think was exciting as the previous year’s 6/6/6
2As I’m not one of the cool kids with their 604s.  And their pants.
3Now at 38 days and counting, btw!.
4Why not 7? Because 7 8 9a, and is currently awaiting trial for the murder.
aProps to Nancy, Jeff & Madeline for introducing me to the good times that is Snacktime!
