Life philosophy & baked goods

Woke up this morning in a cold-medication induced fog, to find a message on my phone.

Since no one ever calls me, this was sort of surprising. Upon opening the message, I found an extra-special photo from Funny Mean Friend: a cookie, iced (white) emblazoned in big red writing with the motto "I win." *

Because FMF does win. It's both a statement of fact and a life philosophy.

As a result, my new project is to find a life-motto that I can put onto a baked good. Really, it could be an excellent method of communication: pink frosting with white letters ("bite me!"), blue and yellow ("More cake!"), Funfetti ("I *heart* John Cusack"), orange & cream ("go away).

It would really cut down on my verbosity, I think. More customizable than conversation hearts, and less seasonal- no restrictions on when & how one could communicate (long words = big cookies!). Also, it would eliminate the need to talk to anyone- here's a cookie & a smile, Gunnerific (Blue & white, with sprinkles: "shut up.")

Until such time as I am able to brainstorm enough frosting-mottos to communicate my needs & desires to the outside world, I think I'll be in the kitchen, pretending I can't find my Property book. Wooooo. Its a new week, kids!

Until later, I am yours in baked goods.

* Incidentally, for pictures of the magical cookie wonder, you should check out FMF's blog, Rockin' the Schoolhouse. She is hysterical, and also, uses terms like "doomcookie." As in: "My little doomcookies all turned their homework in late, and now I'm forced to listen to their insufferable excuses."

...How dreary—to be—Somebody!
How public—like a Frog—
To tell one's name—the livelong June—
To an admiring Bog!
