I got the "Taste of Home" ultimate cookie book today. Ultimate though it may be, the only recipe in it that called for cereal was one for cereal bars-- not what I was looking for. Of course, I'm going to keep the book because it's got hundreds of other delicious-looking and sounding cookies, but the thought of that one cookie recipe I made back in Home Ec in... what, 7th grade? reminded me of the recipe folder I had-- an old purple paper folder with brads in it.
So I started to look for it and didn't find it in any of the usual places (my filing cabinet, or with any of my cookbooks), so I've started to rummage through all the giant bags o'stuff that I had stashed away in my closet. Going through them (because I'm in a cleaning mood, shocking enough), I found this:This is a non-complaining, non-whining, non-smoking flight. If you smoke, we'll ask you to step out on the wing and you'll be our feature presentation of "Gone With the Wind" and "Bye Bye Birdie."
Later on, during the safety talk, "...stop screaming, let go of your neighbor's leg and grab the buttercup-yellow mask in front of you."
Considering the only airline I ride (let alone the only one with flight attendants with a wicked sense of humor like this) is Southwest, I'm attributing it to them. All the more reason to LUV SWA!
Interestingly enough, this was written on an envelope addressed to me that said "anti-air-flight boredom" device: To open upon flight ONLY!" I don't recognize the handwriting, though. Who was it from?
I also found a card from Eva from a birthday that's probably ages past-- probably middle school or early high school, judging by the coupon that mentions "Xander." But there's another coupon that interests me more, cutieme4u
. It's one that is valid for a whole top-to-bottom room cleaning.
...Eva, what are you doing April 6th-11th? *grins* I have no plans for Spring Break.....
So, at least an hour after I started this post (I began with Para Para 2nd Mix, and have reached the end of DDR 4th Mix Nonstop Megamix), I still haven't found my Home Ec folder from middle school with the cereal cookie recipe. I will, though, but probably when I'm looking for something else or not looking at all. That's always how it goes, isn't it?
But I have made progress to be proud of-- I've got two piles of paper, each about 18 inches high (!!) and a box full of paper to recycle. A lot of those two 18 inch piles will probably end up going the same route as that box, but I don't have the energy to sort through it at the moment.
COOKIE RECIPE, I WILL FIND YOU!
