Man v. Woman

Tano:  I need something from GNC.

Me: Speak to Necia cuz she knows where to get that stuff for good prices.

Tano:  No.  I have to get the Super Speshul Snowflake Will Make Me He-Man Protein Powder.

Me: So??  She can get that same powder some place else.  Send her a chat.

Tano:  Fine.

::::::insert pause as he chats with Necia ::::::

Tano:  I’m sticking with GNC cuz I like GNC.

Me:  Well, I like my local yarn store too but I can’t afford to shop there anymore!!!!

Tano:  One day soon you will again.

::::::insert pause where Necia separately breaks the news to me in another chat that she won’t be able to find him the same thing elsewhere::::::

…….I still haven’t replied back to Tano because Woman cannot tell man his Protein wins over my Yarn!!!  :PPPPP

Oatmeal Ginger Cookies

Apparently, our friend Bezzie has been the chief cookie recipe author for Knit Circus for several years now. I dunno where my brain was that I didn’t know this until some time ago.

I bought the last issue and saw the latest recipe has two of my fave ingredients: orange and ginger.

So I armed myself with all the ingredients ready to make my cookies only to realize that I didn’t have molasses. I emailed Bezzie asking for a substitute. She helped me immediately with a suggestion but then I thought about it: this recipe had to be done the right way the first time! No subs!

It took me a bit to remember to buy the molasses. By the time I did, these brats of mine had eaten all the oranges! I buried a tangerine under the apples in the fruit basket but they still found it before I was able to make the cookies these evening.

My revenge, I added a healthy dose of oatmeal instead.

Oatmeal Ginger Cookies

Revenge has never tasted so sweet.
