    Personally, I think you skimped a little on the ice cream and caramel sauce.

    The worst is when you wait too long to eat a piece of cake the size of Detroit and you end up eating and crying at the same time. Very uncomfortable. I’ve found it’s best to always take precaution (as you did) and try to numb yourself before you can actually *feel* anything.
    (Deadlines, taxes, car trouble…I’m off to the donut shop as we speak).

    Oh my god. I want one! Right now, here in the office. That is genius. I thought that you were super cool before, but now, I think you are some kind of prophet. You could heal the world with that cookie sandwich!

    ps. I love Heather’s comment above-
    “Oh My God Our Plumbing’s Fucked Cookies look suspiciously like Third Break-up This Year Cookies. ”

    I thought they looked a bit like “Oh My God My Dad Extended His 9-Day Visit To 22-Days Cookies”

    I just got a sugar buzz from looking at those pictures!

    Damn. I want to eat that whole bowl, even though I know my bloody intestines would fall out with its processed remains. Who cares? It’d be worth it…

  • http://blogs.salon.com/0004595 Meg

    What happens if you MICROWAVE IT before you put on the ICE CREAM? And can you tell I am feeling INTENSE about wanting what is in that bowl from my GRATUITOUS USE OF CAPS?

    I’m sorry to hear about the plumbing issues. But remember — it gives you a tremendous excuse to not hide your crack for weeks. The pants kind AND the other kind…

  • http://ouibet.blogspot.com lis

    Wait. It talked to you after all that, right? For real. I think that’s actually a chemical compound you composed in that bowl. The chemical compound for frankenstein cookie. Or possibly, Musical Theater cookie. It looks like a singing cookie, what with all the pretty colors.

    Mmmm. cookie.

    In case I haven’t said it before, I like the way you and Jon think. I was nearly in diabetic shock just looking at the pictures. Anyone who thinks chocolate isn’t a drug isn’t eating the right chocolate.

  • desedays

    Am I the only one who finds humor that folks are calling a plumbing problem a “shitty situation”?

    Just me then? I’m lame.

  • Mandy

    Wow…typekey is difficult! Anyway…That cookie looks so yummy!

  • Meg

    Oh wow. That makes me loathe my diet. Cold Stone here I come.

  • In Bloom

    Ok, I have to know, did anyone actually eat this?!?

    Even pregnant this looks less than appetizing! Although what do I know, I eat white frosting out of the tub with a spoon!

    I admire your positive attitude about what all is happening … things are sorta going the same way for us and I have a hard time keeping that kind of attitude. I am in the “poor me” stages.

    ohhhmigod. caramel sauce is god. but what is printed on those pastel m&ms?

  • momma 2 angels

    That cost seems inhumane. Once in a lifetime hopefully? The flix of the medicine are superb. If that bowl was prepared by two tons of fun it would look much different.

    looks delicious! the easter m&ms are a nice touch :)

    Try putting brownie mix in your waffle iron to add another tasty layer next time. Sooo good!!

    Bummer on the plumbing! A house I lived in during my Freshman year of college had a terrible plumbing incident much like yours. It appeared that the large trucks with the hoses all over them would never leave our backyard or street. Luckily, we were renters and never had to pay the price (phew, contract).

    I wish I could smother myself in that indulgence! Well, actually, just eat it. I absolutely love Nutella! Glad to see someone else who does, too.

  • http://mrstalkington.blogspot.com Amybobamy

    I was just going to repeat the suggestion about calling the insurance, that Michelle up there already said…

    So instead: I’m glad I’m not the only one who uses cookies to numb the pain. Crack is just sparse these days. Heroin is over-done. Pot.. ugh.. just not my thing. Double chocolate milano…thank you pepperidge farm!

  • Erin

    That looks delicious, and kind of like Easter gone bad. Guess I’ll have to go buy an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen to feel your pain. Darn it.

  • mamacita

    I am 12 weeks pregnant, and have no other sweets in the house other than an unopened tub of Betty Crocker frosting. Your pictures have triggered the craving switch in my brain, and I am now actually about to sit down with a spoon and the frosting and will gorge myself on creamy, sugary, vanilla goodness.

    You guys are my idols.

    I am totally referencing this page and offering it as proof next time I am sitting crying on the bathroom floor after a house-owner tragedy eating the “Doocestrocity” and my husband says that I am the only one that would do that.

    You did !! Rock On! Sugar Dooers!

  • http://www.marciana.org marciana

    I’m thinking maybe you should register this idea, sell it, make loads of money (get the plumbing fixed) – who says no to comfort food these days? You should make the “oh my god i’m fucked” cookie, “oh my god i’m unemployed” cookie, “oh my god i’m flunking that class again” cookie, etc … There would be buyers! :)

    OMG…i thought I had made a wondrous 420 inspired sandwich (wheat bread, PB, and chocolate syrup, I called the Reese’s Sandwich…you guys totally crushed me with this masterpiece..shine on you crazy diamonds.

    speaking of nutella,

    actually, this has nothing to do with nutella* at all.

    when you guys were in amsterdam, did you have the typical dutch breakfast of bread smothered in butter covered in chocolate sprinkles? TASTES LIKE CAKE. GOOD CAKE. makes the chocolate sprinkles we have over here taste like plastic.

    *the dutch like nutella

    In my humble opinion, the only thing missing from the delectableness that you have created, is one thing that will get you (at least gets me) wired. A nice strong cup of coffee. Sugar, chocolate and caffiene. Of course, coffee is a sin but what the hell, eh?

  • http://www.stacieupallnight.blogspot.com Stacie

    That looks delicious! Except you forgot the whipped cream and a cherry. Good luck with the shitty situation.

  • Carli

    that is something totally baked-tacular. Better than pizza and Doritos. I will share with all my stoner buddies and be sure to give my newly adopted family memebers (the Armstrongs) all the credit. Sucks about the sewer system, but it could be worse. If you really hate it, move out all your super good stuff, then “accidentally” burn down your house. You keep the lot and build the house you really want, sans sewer issues. Leave it to an ex-insurance agent to suggest fraud. :)

  • http://www.jbjones.blogspot.com Mrs Ca

    Um, yeah. That looks like heaven in a bowl. The only thing that could have made it better would have been a scoop of Edy’s Samoa flavored ice cream. Because that stuff is better than crack. Or at least I’m guessing that it is.

    Parisiens love Nutella! While on vacation in Paris the past two weeks, I consumed something like 3lbs of Nutella- it was on my ice cream, it was in my crepes, it was on my croissants, it was practically running out of my ears.

    Mmm… makes me want to run to Diddy Reese after work for an ice cream sammich.

  • lindsayc

    dear lord, please send me a cookie sandwich like that. but not the bad plumbing, a screaming one year old is trouble enough! and some burbon too, please.

    Just a boring, but potentially money saving suggestion. Have you checked with your home owners insurance to see if they will cover the sewer replacement? When we were faced with an $8000 repair job due to root damage my mom suggested I call our insurance. This would *never* have occured to me, but sure enough, they said they would cover it, including the nifty video the plumbers made that showed how packed the pipe was with roots. No wonder our tangerine tree had been producing such lovely, tasty fruit…

    Of course, this is how I wound up weighing 120 pounds at 12 years old, but food is a great comforter.

    For me, it’s now a PB&J on an awesome raisin bagel.

    BTW, I got the weight thing under control.

    aww, nutella. i only get to buy it when my nephew stays over night. because, you know, he’s only seven and good aunts buy nutella when their nephews stay over. also good thing: he usually has one sandwich for breakfast and maybe another teaspoon full just because which means i have to finish the rest because, you know, it may go bad until the next time he comes and we don’t wanna give bad food to nephew… hmmm. lecker :)
