    Wow, I received and passed along the tequila cookie recipe this morning. Quite surprised to see a comment on it late tonight. Your observation is enlightening, Danielle. Not knowing that it was adapted from a cake recipe, I assumed that the cake tin reference was because the baker was too intoxicated by that point to accurately label her bakeware. Your explanation certainly fits as well. A couple of people have asked here today where it came from, and as I’ve said earlier, no credit was given in the version that was sent to me. Do you know, Danielle, who wrote the recipe?

    Shocked and slightly embarrassed at the sight of Larry in a towel, Bob regains his composure and confesses …

    “Larry, that old hairbrush of yours … Well, you never use it, you don’t really need it. So, well, I’m sorry, I didn’t know. But I gave it to the Peach – ’cause he’s got hair!”

    Feeling a deep sense of loss, Larry stumbles back and laments …

    “Not fair! Oh, my hairbrush. Not fair! My poor hairbrush. Not fair, not fair, no hair, not fair, no where, no hair, not fair, not fair, not fair! My little hairbrush!”

    You are SOOOO too late for that, Caroline. The best you can hope for is sloppy thirds. GEORGE! is my baby daddy.

    Hey, look back through the comments, Mrs. George #2, I claimed him WAAAAAY before Mrs. George #1. So you’ve settled for third. Yea.

    Fish, LMAO
    That probably sounds to the many people like another one of your claims that you live in a Redneck Wasteland where the mullets are the highest per capita.

    My favorite part of the Pixies concert: When they repeatedly started to play, but didn’t play, “Here Comes Your Man”. One of t he only songs of theirs I don’t appreciate. They did play it for the encore, a one-song encore.

    Also loved the way they broke into a bluesy rendition of a song that is usually fast and hard. Now I’ll have to clear a bit of the tequila haze to remember which one that was.

    Gotta run, am training some counselors to use some technology.

    Ugh, I’m so sick of U2. Their new music video’s played three times this hour on MTV and twice on VH1. And that’s just from flicking through the channels. Just thought everyone should know that.

    Susie, yeah, yesterday was one of those days (like today) where I can be at my computer early, and then can’t be at it again until after the work day is over. So, I go home and read the comments there. (which actually made me cranky last night, because I’d missed all of the fun *sigh*)

    My mom originally showed me the joke; I can’t find my copy. So, I asked her to see if she can find it and tell me if it says anything about authorship.

    but I won’t know (if anything) until late tonight.

    she works at a company that distributes alcohol (including rum), so it is possible someone there wrote it. we shall see. 🙂

    F R I D A Y !!!

    mom got back to me.

    No idea who wrote it.

    have y’all seen the one about the woman planning the company holiday party? I’ll see if I can find any authorship on it before sharing.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
