While You Were at the Bar 8/20

News you can use:

The Georgia boys who claimed to have found Bigfoot were big fat liars. While I am not surprised, I am a bit ashamed since those are my people. ::hangs head::

Tropical Storm Fay hit Florida's coast yesterday and spawned several tornadoes. No deaths were reported, but Fay is expected to continue on to eastern Florida where a tropical storm warning has been issued.

There is more speculation about the vice-presidential nominations from each party. Who knows? I think I can honestly say that I don't care. I really don't. DOES IT EVEN MATTER? Unless Obama chooses Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. Then I will care A WHOLE LOT.

News you can lose:

Somebody Stop the Olympics Madness:

- Where have my swimmers gone? The gymnasts aren't cutting it for me.

- Oh Nono, Lolo! I wanted her to win the gold so bad... Somebody had even carved her face in ice at the Iowa State Fair!

- I need sleep.

More news you can lose:

I made Pen's Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies last night and they are delish. For reals. If you or someone you love is a chocolate covered cherry person, they will kiss your face for these. I can say that with personal experience to back it up.

In regards to the silver medal in the egg cooking contest, I will use the Army's very famous Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy. Karen, surely you understand, being an Army girl and all?

Word of the Day:

aestival
(adjective): of or belonging to the summer

I'm a fan of the aestival Olympics OR I'm pretty sure all of the Smartin barmaids are aestival girls OR Aestival items include ligntning bugs, lemonade and suntan lotion.

3 tips left at the bar:

Glad the cookies turned out! Was the cherry liqueur indispensable, do you think? I'm curious.

I felt so sorry for Lolo. I do NOT get how human beings do hurdles, much less at a lightning-fast pace. It's so impressive.

I thought the liqueur was a good addition, although I haven't had them without to compare. Actually, I'm mostly thinking of the taste of the dough (because, yeah, I ate some!) which really reminded me of chocolate covered cherries. Once they were baked, I don't know how much I tasted it. Just for you, I will do more cookie eating research!

YES - please let us know how they taste w/ and w/o liquer. I'm planning on making these VERY soon (because despite popular belief, I do actually bake. . .when I have time).
