Meatloaf has a valid argument

It's tricky coming up with masculine Valentine's day gift ideas. One year I just bought Matt a pair of shoes that he liked, stuffed them full of flowers and called them sporty vases.

This year I thought I was on to something clever, a cookie bouquet! True, it is mushie like a bouquet of posies, but that mushiness is tempered by its high caloric snackiness. This is perfection. What could possibly stop me from making this purchase?!

The answer to that question is a price tag of $73.98!

What the hell? We're only talking nine cookies here sister! NINE!

In quoting the great Meatloaf, as I am often wont to do, I would do anything for love . . . but I won't do that.

(Or suck toes, I won't do that either).

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! May your homemade cookies be tasty and affordable.

that's crazy talk. you can make those cookies, wrap them, and ship them yourself for $30. And have WAY better messages.

I'm getting my hubby an Amazon.com gift certificate -- it fits like a glove, every time.

Two Words: Beef Jerky.

It worked when my wife gave it to me.

I thought the run up on roses this time of year was bad!!
