Huh

A very nice reader on HDJM recced my Game of Thrones recaps on WinterisComing.net (and I left a link there, because I'm trying this thing where I self promote? IDK, it's hard for me) and our traffic is up 500%.

UH. THANK YOU. If only we could make, you know, money off that so I could send fat checks to the writers. =/ Well, the likes and comments and trackbacks warm our hearts, at least. (So thanks those of you who do that!)

Today is rainy and spring-timey and it's making me very very happy. Lime green shoots are popping out of the ground (and I have rose buds at the ready!) and the trees are leafing out. <3

If only my dog would stop farting. Then it would truly be a magical moment here...

Instead, I go off in search of French fries, for they are the perfect food. Oooh, and cookies. I need cookies. I have no cookies, but I NEED some. OOH, POLL:
Poll #1905954 C IS FOR ______ [that's good enough for me]

Should I make cookies?

Yes.
12(15.8%)
Uh...duh?
22(28.9%)
HELL YES WOMAN, COME ON
42(55.3%)
I hate everything good in life. No. No cookies.
0(0.0%)

I am ignoring the haterz. Now, which cookies should I (obviously) make?

Chocolate Chip
39(50.6%)
Chocolate crinkles
7(9.1%)
Peanut Butter
16(20.8%)
Mexican Wedding Cookies (aka Russian Tea Cookies)
12(15.6%)
Pistachio
3(3.9%)

C is for

cookie
67(52.3%)
cake
31(24.2%)
CAEK - there, Liz, I hope you're happy
12(9.4%)
candy
18(14.1%)


ALSO! A movie I was in (briefly - I got to cuss and get paid for it \o/) is available on iTunes/VOD. It's dark and funny (I think) WUSS.

What are Chocolate Crinkles? I voted for peanut butter because I love them, but I am intrigued by the Crinkles (and the pistachio).

Chocolate Crinkles! NOM NOM.

The pistachio is a secret recipe for a fantastic gluten-free cookie I make at Christmastime, but are so yummy (and a little salty) that I like them year round. :)

Congratulations on the increased HDJM traffic. That's awesome.

Mexican Wedding Cookies! So much buttery, powder sugar-y, pecan-y goodness!

It's very good! (Especially since I just plopped down a huge chunk of change for unlimited bandwidth. NOW WE HAVE ALL OF THE BANDWIDTH! ...theoretically.)

Mexican Wedding Cookies, seriously. So freaking delish.

I can't believe I couldn't click ALL the cookie choices! *cries*

I ate almonds as a snack already today, and I'm making almond macaroons later, I DON'T EVEN CARE! Let's all have a cookie exchange -- who cares it's not Christmas???

YAY for more traffic to HDJM! How awesome that your GoT recap garnered lots of visitors!

Also, apparently I must punctuate everything extremely for this reply???!!!

I CAN'T MAKE ALL THE COOKIES TODAY! D: I needed to make a Sophie's Choice here, okay?

NOMMY ALMONDS!! I love using almond flour in cookies, so delicious! I don't think I've ever had almond macaroons before! I will need to add that to the list! (Oh man, and I just remembered my Nutella lava cookies and about had an aneurysm.)

The whole site is up, and it's not just me! Dr. Who is back, so that's a great traffic bringer, as well as those sexy Vikings. :D

HOMG peanut butter cookies! My grampa used to make the most delicious ones. He left us his recipe but no one ever in my family has been able to duplicate them. TEARS! TEARS OF PEANUT BUTTER.

Is it time for swimming yet where you live?

I mean, I answered the poll. Where are my damned cookies? And cake. Caaaake. Cakecakecake. Angel Food and Devil's Food and Cupid's Food (<--don't know that this exists yet...I therefore decree that it is to include things like spicy cherries and vanilla and cinnamon and booze of some sort.)

Hmmm...could be I'm a touch hormonal just now.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
