I came home to find that one o' the Mutts has committed Grand Theft Cookie Jar. As in, around a kilo of butter cookies have been consumed.

I don't have enough evidence to determine who the culprit is. Hooligan has means (as in the brains to work out the details of the crime), but Heffalump has motive (as in, a bottomless appetite.)

Ergo, Sippenhaft: Both are going without dinner tonight.


FWP: OH is working from home today. Of course he didn't hear, see, or notice a thing.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The jacuzzi bathtub in my hotel room is out of order, the alternative room offered is on a lower floor and doesn’t have as nice a view.

Jacuzzi or view??

I know, I was being facetious. I love not knowing what to cook and just waiting for magic to happen under my hands, hahahah...

Which reminds me - it is leek, spuds and egg soup, white butter beans, egg plant next week, I think. I can't get enough of veggies, my FWP.

And another one - my amazing black cuissardes have a hole.

Clementines might be good for me, but eating them does not make me happy like eating chocolate chip cookies does.

I bought 2 kilos of ultra sour clementines and 2 kilos of ultra sour oranges. Now I have to eat them.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

We started making juice out of the ultra sour clementines and oranges...my wrist hurts. Aside of the juice giving us electric shock how sour it is - are juicers worth the investments? Another clunky machine?

Amazon prime has made the shipping time of other online retailers unbearable for me.
