Would eating cookie dough from a plastic tube that reads, quite prominently, "COOKIE DOUGH CONTAINS RAW INGREDIENTS. BAKE BEFORE CONSUMING," be considered a sort of Russian Roulette?


  1. kuj- it's time to pack your bags and get the hell out of there! Mother Nature obviously hates that area of the world!!!

    It was beautiful and sunny here in Dallas yesterday. I enjoyed a salad on the patio.

    Wish you were here!

  2. Hey Cheryl,
    If you're going to bust on my cousin with weather stories, at least post a picture for a grand slam......

    D, eat the cookie dough, your mom does it all the time too.

    Love, Heb xo

  3. Can I post a photo in comments?

  4. That's right, torture us Yankees. I'll be grateful to live in the Northwoods when the rest of the country is sweltering. It just takes a while for us to catch up, what with the proximity to the Arctic Circle and all. One upside to living up here, all our insects are too small to ride. :D

    Spring in Western Wisconsin is a season of extremes. We had to scrape the rest of the snow and frost off the car this morning in the 25 degree air, but now it's sunny and should be 60 when I leave at 3, and you can bet there'll be open windows and a short bike ride.

    Cheryl, I don't think you can post pictures in the comments...I'll just keep combing the margaritaville website for birthday presents for me and thinking about palm trees, ocean, sugar sand and twisty, clean roads.

  5. I don't care if it gets to 120. I prefer the heat over the snow anyday! I lived in Utah for 9 years and I'm so done with snow. My idea of hell is not the sweltering, boiling heat... it's that cold fluffy white stuff that makes your teeth chatter!

    I was thinking about you while I was out at lunch... sunny blue skies with just the right touch of cool breeze. AH! Paradise.

    PS as far as bugs go... that's what poison is for. :)

  6. Darling Dearest-
    #1 It once snowed on your birthday in Chicago.

    #2 You won't be sweltering? Were you with us at Timmy's a couple of summers ago?

    #3 I need to remind you of not an insect native to your place but the MN state bird, the mosquito, who knows no border between MN and WI.

    #4 If it makes you feel any better, we are sweating in Tampa at this moment.


  7. OH. My. GOD! Happy Birthday! I am sooooooooooo late! (I cringe as I type those words. Ack! More guilty cringing happening-- I feel it in my spincter.) Crud. I don't even get time to apologize thoroughly. My husband wants me to look at something stupid. More when the stupid looking is over....

  8. Um...I meant "sphincter." But my spincter felt the guilt, too.
