If You Give a Man a Cookie

If you give a man a cookie, he's going to ask for a glass of milk. When you give him the milk, he'll probably ask you for some more cookies. When he's finished with the milk (and cookies), he'll probably sit back and admire his man-stache in the mirror.


A few days ago I had my own give-a-mouse-cookie experience come back to bite me during prep for dinner. I completely forgot to take the sliced almonds out of the toaster oven. The result: Almendras a la Char - ultra rich in carbon-y goodness.

Dear Wildly Unpredictable Colorado Weather,

I realize you get bored on occasion and like to "spice" things up. Well, today was totally unacceptable. Your brief 50+mph out-of-no-where wind gush projecting a plethora of horizontally-focused ice/rain pellets on an otherwise beautifully calm sunny day was not appreciated in the least.

On the brighter side, I now have a new-found respect for the Mormon pioneers who, despite great odds, trekked across an untamed wilderness, with guiding faith in the Savior. Exercising such faith as this is deserving of Heavenly blessings.

Fortunately tonight, there be a fiddler in this camp to provide vital mental medicine.

My Thousand Words

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then do a thousand words equal a picture? I submit that this is indeed the case given that the words are in "ZDingbats" characters (who designs these wacky fonts anyways? I like food).

Our 4 + month overdue wedding pictures came in the mail this week, providing much joy and relief. They turned out beautifully clear. So here's my thousand words: I love my Liezel, mi perla de gran precio!

Laugh a little more

This is it folks, entertainment at it's best: A pug and his piano
