I Do Not Make this Up

I will share the question of the day, as posed by Junior when I was talking about the little girl who was born with 4 extra limbs being able to go home.

“What if Britney Spears had a baby she named Spears Spears and it had two faces.”

Well, that is is good question, isn’t it? I’m not sure why we’re discussing Britney, specifically. I’d be interested in discussing anyone who has a baby and gives it a double name and oh, by the way, the baby has two faces.

So there you go. There’s your question of the day.

Here’s my question of the day: Shaws was out of peppermint extract, which is needed for this ultra simple dessert I was going to make. I don’t want to go to a different grocery store the Saturday before a nor’easter because I am not stupid. I went to Shaws before 9am for a reason. What other store do you think might carry peppermint extract?

    Not four faces, but I’ve always been mildly fascinated with New Hampshire Democratic operative Dudley W. Dudley, partly because she’s a woman (my father’s name is Dudley, which has to do with some bizarre family tradition involving a kiddish cup, the first-born male in each generation, Jewish superstitions about first names and my incredibly stubborn grandfather, and yeah, there’s more to the story), partly because, well, because who would name their kid Dudley Dudley, let alone Dudley W. Dudley?

    For extract I know the natural food store on Hamilton St between Shaws and the bike shop has things like that. Oh course Hanniford’s might too.
    Good Luck.. I am struggling exercising inside a gym. It was more enjoyable to see the countryside move along while running outside.
    Treadmills, stairmasters, and ellipticals are ok but kinda boring even with music. Trying to keep things up. Hit 95lbs off this week, another 10 is the goal (along with 14″ of waistline reduction). Jerry

    I don’t know if they still do have them but CVS used to carry a decent selection of common spices that were nice and cheap (99 cents), I can’t remember if vanilla was one of them though.

    I’ll have to make a point of looking next time I’m in there.

    Hannaford? I wouldn’t try MB for something that specialty — their selection is on the sucky side.

    The mister went out as soon as it stopped snowing to get me flour, eggs, etc. so I could make some biscotti. Yum.

    As a scout leader here in Georgia we had a boy one week at camp with the name Wade Wade. I kid you not we had to go back through other documentation to make sure it was correct. As a side note I had a supervisor once named Wade A. Cross. I thought that was pretty amusing.

    cheers

    Sounds to me like you need to order that Herb Garden so you can grow your own mint!

    Lana! You’re a genius! Okay, so I’ll order the herb garden and get rush shipping and I’ll start the mint as soon as it arrives and then I’ll figure out how to extract the oil. Perfect!! 🙂
