What cookies!

I'm starting to believe that Rob and Jaz are speaking in code.

That depends entirely on how good a cook you are, Chick.

Oh, Chick and I are talking quite literally of biscuits (or are we?).

Should we tell her, Hunk?

Aww, hells, I guess it's safe to tell her.

Hunk has joined the Dark Side. We are talking of the complimentary cookies that every member gets. I told you we've got cookies!




...


You didn't believe I'd really tell her, eh?

I might tell her though, if you're alright with it, Hunk.

Okay, so here's what's behind the cookie Conspiracy. Before Christmas 2005, hunk had bought me and gave me as a Christmas present, both Fallout 1 and 2 in English. His motivation for this was completely altruistic, I think (and he claims so too. ), but I said I would bake and send him cookies in return. However, it turned out that I didn't really get to send him cookies, due to a hungry attack of my sister and her boyfriend.

Hunk was still saying I do not have to send him cookies. But I still insisted.

So this year I actually managed to bake enough cookies. But it turns out I couldn't send anything before the 1st January, as the parcel service was closed until then. And once the first January had arrived, I had so much to do, that I simply forgot to send it (Shame on me!). And now he is back to Oxford, and the cookies would be more than stale once he gets back if I send it to his home address.

So now I'm going to send him Easter cookies.

I'm going to start pretending that my online purchases are really gifts from friends.

In other news, my parent's old car finally gave up the ghost today. Apparently, they thought it needed new shock absorbers, so they took it into the shop to have new shocks installed.

Once there, they were duly informed by the mechanic that the entire rear axle had broken on one side, and was being held on only be a small metal bracket. The frame was completely rusted away in that spot.

Hey anybody want to buy some cookie dough from my daughter? I'll send you some chewing gum if you do.

I do not understand why schools need so many darned fundraisers

Cookie dough? You mean these brats don't go to the effort of even baking it any more?

I like the idea of schools having to have fund raisers, over here the government just robs us with exorbitant taxes and pays for the crummy services like that.

The way to cut the cost in public schools is to go to the Board of Education and fire about 75% of the over payed people. Just walk up to there office and ask if they have anything to do directly with the education of children. If they say no or even hesitate hand them their walking papers.

I went on a tirade one time do to the fact that the elementary schools in the school district I lived in did not have gyms and needed to have fund raisers for playground equipment but the high school got a $19000000 football stadium and the 'Great and Powerful school' board built them a brand new $3000000 building since there building was 6 years old.

Britain is closer than Germany. I believe we should aim for closer relations with our Scandinavian brothers and sisters (well, some of them anyway. )

Dang, I was going to say that (but with the quotes in this order I said it first ) Also Jelena may or may not be considered to have beaten me to Nikita for the same reasons.

Because government funding these days is rubbish?

Can you get her to make some cookies and decorate in fun and interesting ways instead? I only buy stuff that requires child labour to produce it.

A thread most controversial, that’s what I want to start

Hrm, hrm my good man. Since my post about Nikita was posted more than 12 hours before yours, you are so beaten.

Didn't my last four words make me sound just like a teenager?

Me? I said nothing. It was you who confirmed their lucky guess.

I vote in favour of including Britain in Scandinavia. Islands are nice. (It also adds something fresh to the debate. Didn't we already discuss what constitutes Scandinavia in this thread?)

I like the idea of Scotland being a part of Scandinavia. That'll make it a lot easier for me to get Mr J to accompany me on another trip through Scotland....being in Scandinavia and all.

But Trumgottist, we can forget about plan B too if we make Britain a Scandinavian country.

I've already forgotten about plan b. I always thought its only use was as a decoy.

This Thread™ should be as dead as the likelihood of Britain becoming a part of Scandinavia.
