I support the stalwarts! Do we really want words such as "bigly" and "covfefe" creeping into the language? :eek:
By Jove, I think that the British ought to hang on to their traditional modes of expression. It's their culture, by George! The King's English, and all that, eh wot?

RJ, the movie is about the band, Queen.
Oh, that should be good. Freddie Mercury was quite an amazing character.

My cookies didn't turn out great aesthetically, I messed up my cream because I was silly and chilled it so I couldn't spread it out properly. I can't eat them either because just WAY too much sugar and I'll get ever so dreadfully sick. Maple cream.
I'll have them. :yum:

Good evening. :hello:

Nice looking cookies! Yum.

Didn't do much today. Cleaned up in the kitchen, ran the dishwasher.

I was making my shopping list when I realized that I'm low on coffee. :eek: Then, as soon as I thought about coffee, I wanted to make a pot. Kinda late in the day for that, but I don't think I care. :loopy:

GM. well they LOOK delicious, Lyanna - though i probably wouldnt eat them as i am 95% vegan and eat a low wheat diet. I gardened, shopped, read, cleaned, read...and got paid for two of those. today i am starting off down the plot with watering/planting out leeks....and ending with vegan pizza after my cleaning job this evening - in between = 'who knows'.

Good morning!

The cookies look good,Lyanna.

I too, am starting to enjoy vegetarian pizza more and more these days. While I love pepperoni, I am finding the nitrates in it are giving me headaches. Plus, I am finding that my body isn't handling a lot of sodium very well these days, and pepperoni is high in sodium.

One nice thing about the desert: You sweat most of your salt out, so usually you don't have to worry about sodium.

Sadly, no. I'm talking about a woman being billed $6000 for some tests a doctor ran on her two kids. But there's a lottery drawing tonight, so my answer may be different tomorrow. :lol:

Good morning, everyone. :hello:

There is some evidence that today is Thursday. That should make it a fairly easy day.

Happy Thursday, everyone :hello:

Today I meet with my summer research students. Then I'll have lunch at Arby's with a good friend. Somewhere in there I'll try to get some writing done :writing:

I'd poison myself by putting the wrong flowers from my garden on my pizza. :lol:
I do like the idea of Zen Pizza, however :lol:

Good morning!

My uncle used to call RJ's and scottydog's Zen pizzas," Everything But the Kitchen Sink Pizza". When I was a kid, he and I would make home made pizza with pepperoni, sausage, peppers, onions, olives, banana peppers, mushrooms, garlic, and whatever else we could find in my grandmother's refrigerator. I miss those days.

My plans today, consists of a load or two of laundry, cleaning the bathrooms, and possibly weeding the vegetable garden.

They keep changing the day the trash truck comes thru the neighborhood. Now I'm constantly confused about when to take our big trash can out to the road. :conf:

Friday has finally crawled along at last. Of course, I have to log in for a two-hour meeting tomorrow morning, but that won't be too bad-- and a little extra money....

I didn't know that rose petals are edible. We have a couple of roses blooming right now -- maybe that's my breakfast. Or maybe I can bring some petals to the potluck :yum:
