1. In case you weren't diligently checking Twenties Hacker this week (tsk, tsk), my post from Monday was probably my favorite one - it's the one for the sugar cookies my family always made every year when I was growing up. I know I'm incredibly biased, but I think these are the best cookies ever on the planet. And now that I've taught you how to make them, if you should ever desire to be in my good graces, all you have to do is present me with a plate of these bad boys and I will forgive you whatever you may have done wrong.
2. THE UGLY SWEATER CONTEST WINNER.
This contest was probably my greatest source of amusement in quite a while, so thank you to everyone who participated and/or voted. I might do it again next year, I think. (Yay or nay?)
A quick recap of the entrants:
Without much further ado, the person taking home this bad boy:
For those of you who care about such things, 2nd place went to Stacey and her harem of sweater-clad men and 3rd place went to Tori and her mad MS Paint skillz. I don't have prizes for them, but, you know. Pride and what-not.
IN THE PET DIVISION, here were our entries:
And the winner is...
I don't have a sweet-ass trophy for him, but I'm going to find a best-in-show ribbon or something. Or maybe I'll get him a doggy bone. I don't know. I'll consult with his mama.
2nd Place was a two-way tie between Shasta and Oly, and 3rd place was kitty-bros Dino & Pookie.
I need Carolina and Barney's mama Calee to email me with where they want their $10 gift cards to. Addresses would be helpful also.
Congrats, ladies and gentledog!
Meanwhile, I'm going to attempt to make something and write a post for 20s Hacker for tomorrow... right now. DEDICATION, PEOPLE. I HAS IT.
