Tulips

August 11, 2008

Behold, for your consideration, proof god loves us… the tulip! Shout out to the little brother on this one, but come on, who does not like tulips, WHO!? Is there absolutely anything about this flower not to like? In 17th century Holland, a prized one of these could be exchanged for a house. Now I know the Dutch are a little bugged out, but can we really doubt their taste in flowers, after all they are high all the time, they know about these things. When I buy flowers, either I buy tulips, or I wish I had bought tulips. The tulip is a little sexy, it is a little sweet, it is youthful, yet mature enough to have a bit of formality. Think pre-addiction Lindsay Lohan. The rose is okay for a while, but they get cruddy fast. Daisies are just plain cheap. Irises are for communists. Lets be real. It is all about the tulip. Further, incontrovertible proof that god loves us.

Cookie Dough

August 11, 2008

Behold, for your consideration, proof god loves us…. chocolate chip cookie dough. This thing has raw eggs in it, RAW EGGS, and we eat it like if it was manna. Wherever you put this thing it is great. Ice cream, chocolate, directly into your mouth while walking around the supermarket… whether raw, cooked; name it, cookie dough delivers. Every time. Take a taste, detect the sweetness of the batter, followed by the mild bitterness of the chocolate and crowned by just a wee bit of salt. When Chocolate Chip cookies are being made I eye them like the last Coca Cola in the desert. Once the cookies are put on the baking sheet…..attack. This is a rare treat. Go for yours. I would box out a paraplegic to get first dibs on some cookie dough. And yes, I will admit, the occasional purchase of a roll of pre-made cookie dough that will never see the light of an oven. It is horrible for you, but we can only prove that we have one life (I think). Embrace Cookie Dough’s role in it.
