No high hopes

Thanks for the well wishes on tomorrow's race, but I am not expecting much. I've felt like dookie all week, and tonight my head is pounding. In true 3-year-old form, Grace is going mental. If it weren't for Neese running tomorrow, and the 25 bones already paid, I wouldn't go. We're looking at 47 deg and 13mph winds, if you can believe the forecasters.

Anyway, here's a recipe for you guys to try. Marcy and J-Mom, feel free to substitute Russian potato wine (vodka) for the agave nectar! ;-)

1 cup of dark brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 cup of granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 cups of dried fruit, such as dried cranberries or raisins
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 bottle Jose Cuervo Tequila (silver or gold, as desired)

Sample the Cuervo to check quality.

Take a large bowl, check the Cuervo again, to be sure it is of thehighest quality, pour one level cup and drink.

Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl.Add one teaspoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point it's best to make sure the Cuervo is still OK, try another cup just in case.

Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuckin the cup of dried fruit.Pick the frigging fruit up off floor.Giggle.

Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose with a drewscriver. Giggle again.

Sample the Cuervo to check for tonsisticity. Giggle some more.

Next, sift two cups of salt, or something, whatever. Check the JoseCuervo.

Now shift the lemon juice and strain. Add one table full of that one stuff. Add a spoon of shuga, or somefink.Whatever you can find. It all looks the same.Grease the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not To fall over.

Pick yourself up off the floor. Try not to giggle, it makes the floor fall out from underneath you.Don't forget to beat off the turner.

Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the Cose Juervo and make sure to put the stove in the dishwasher.


See you tomorrow, Neese! Go have an awesome race!!

Ok, Javadad said you can't just shun someone with no reason so you are now un-shunned.

Okay, I totally missed what Lisa is dong, but I now know that she has a lot of extra time on her hands :)

Good luck with the race! And, ick! I hate tequila. Had a little too much in college and now I can't even smell it without vomitting a bit in my mouth.
