I before E

A little irony before the end of the year. The English language both/often perplexes and amazes me.  2018 sure had some unique word choices.   ….exceptions to the rule or exceptional?

Synonym Buns

Actual cinnamon buns in the oven led to synonym buns. Which got me on a roll that led to some pretty silly cookies. Seriously though, the English language and I have a long and convoluted relationship. Come along while I navigate my cookie-documented IDIOMactic journey!

Season’s Bleatings

As I decorated cookies and listened to old school Christmas movies for background noise, I heard the proverbial “bah hum bug.” My mind went a-wandering and, ‘poof,’ yet another silly cookie set was born.

Holiday office party for the judicial courts in Colorado.  Please pun, the client said.  I don’t have to be asked twice. Her favorite were the ‘briefs’…

#1 TryptoFAN

Yes, yes.  We love Thanksgiving, what with family, friends, food and all. But sometimes there are those awkward moments where the conversation falls off and … Like Cards against Humanity, here are some topics that can reboot that dinner table chitchat to awesome(Cranberry)SAUCE.  Interestingly, turkey has no more L-trypotophan than red meats, cheese, chocolate, oats… but, hey, where there’s a couch, there’s a way! Happy Napzzz!

Snark Attack

This may or may not have been one of my favorite sets ever to create. Wisecracking was dripping off of my icing bag. I would go so far as to say it was total SASSafras. Maybe or maybe not a little close to home????
