OK, So I am home and having a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon. Anyone else lurking on the boards? How about a few drinks, some snacks and some random conversation.

Yeah, we hit 80 yesterday and I think the high was 60 today. I think we will have a few more days like this before the temp jumps back up again.

I'm having a bad night.

There's an event at my church next weekend that I can't go to. The coordinator asked me to help, but since I can't go, I told her I would leave a baked good in the church freezer this weekend for the event.

Tried to make peanut butter cookies. Wasn't thinking and added an extra egg. Also used light pb, which I think added to the problem. The cookies COMPLETELY melted. I basically had ugly brittle.

Decided to make them into a trifle. Broke the cookies up, ran to the market for cream cheese and whipped cream, tossed the broken cookies with a $6 bag of reeses minis, made the cool whip/cream cheese mix, tried to spread it over the top. Will not spread. About 1/3 the amount I need to properly cover the darn thing.

I have a headache. I don't want to deal with this. I don't want to go back to the store. I don't want to spend more money on what was supposed to just be a batch of cookies using ingredients already in my kitchen. I can't bring it the way it is now (no one would touch it, it's the ugliest pan of anything that has ever graced my kitchen....no exaggeration....and this is a nicer event). I don't want to make something else at 10pm tonight.

I don't know what to do with it. It's sitting on my counter. I want to throw it away but my kitchen trash is full (I can't take it out at night because the alley isn't safe). Also, there is six freaking dollars worth of reeses minis in there.

I gained three pounds this week, because I stress eat, and it was finals. Part of me wants to say screw it and just go in with a spoon. I was supposed to eat healthy today, and go for a run. I did neither.

I just wanna cry. Seriously.

Stupid freaking extra egg.

ETA: I meant to add: Bartender, I need something strong. Or a couple somethings.

Sorry it didn't work out Ama. An extra egg is an easy mistake I've made a few times. Even though it won't spread, can you put it all in a pan and nuke it to get it to soften it up a bit to get it to spread? It sounds delicious even if it doesn't look so great.

ETA: Do you like rum? or how about a whiskey sour?

honestly, at this point the only thing it would be good for would be eating it as an ice cream topping. That won't really work for the occasion. I need to just throw it out.

Thanks Gahurts I'm always up for some chatting.

What's a fishbowl? I've heard of a scorpion bowl. It's supposed to serve seven, and I knew of one person who drank it herself

I just loked up the recipe for that fishbowl drink. It does look like it will lay you flat pretty quickly. I'll have to try it!

ETA:

10 ounces vodka
10 ounces coconut rum
6 ounces Blue Curacao liqueur
12 ounces sweet-and-sour mix
20 ounces pineapple juice
32 ounces lemon- lime soda
blue food coloring, if desired
3 small fishbowls (each holding 4-5 cups volume)
1 box (6 oz) Nerds candy
12-16 Swedish fish candies
ice
fruit slices (3 each, lemon, lime and orange)
9 drinking straws

They're both good. I'm leaning towards Eleventh Hour because it's a library book. The Last Detective is good, but written in first person. I have a hard time getting into first person stories.

Hi everyone. I'm on penicillin and codeine tonight so please make me something nummy. No booze nummy or things could really get silly.....

Day two after dental implant, jaw feels a little bruised and I'm a little puffy in the cheek area.

Which is making me a little cheeky.

Forge ahead without me y'all!

No JRC, I havn't been. I am not a big fan of chocolate but I do like white chocolate - I know white chocolate is not really chocolate - I agree, it's better!

Abby, I'm nt sure - I would usually do a port or cognac with dessert.

Good to hear, GA!

It was, abby. I painted the main room of my condo myself it took four days (on-and-off) and today I finished. I don't want to look at another can of paint, again.

I doubt I can keep my eyes open long enough to get a chapter in

Good night all
