Me want cookie! Meeeee want coooookie!

Magnet #324 - Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors

Ha. I'm getting more mileage out of these Shakespeare insults than I'd ever imagined. I was gonna use this for a whole McDonald's post, but I figure eventually I'll find a McD's magnet.

What do you do after having a crap crappity week that wasn't necessarily a comedy of errors? You go for the comfort food. Which is what I've done this weekend. In less than 30 minutes, I managed to fill my little reusable shopping bag with goodies of the baked variety.

I ended up at Buttercup Bakery, for these two cupcakes. And then Levain Bakery and Jacques Torres' new Upper West Side location for these cookies.

In the end, the only thing I've eaten is the Chocolate Chip Walnut, which was insanely fabulous. Seriously. So big, you need two glasses of milk to finish it off. And, warmed in the oven to melty chocolate goodness, it was amazing. All other cookies pale in comparison. I may never buy cookies from anywhere else again. In fact, I kinda wish I could take everything else back, and buy another chocolate chip walnut. Good. Gravy.

Mmmmm, cookies. No, it doesn't make the crap crappity stuff go away, but it sure does make it easier to get through.

What fun! Mentalfloss did a blogpost with 20 stories about the Muppets, with Cookie Monster as the number 1 story. That's happy-making. How funny is it that Cookie Monster started out a General Foods concept, then an IBM corporate training vid.

Pin It!

See, now I'm considering skipping the traditional sandwich part of lunch today and skipping right to dessert...

I'm a total Cookie Monster.

You can't spell magnetism without ANGST as in you've had an Angst-riddled week...

Bwahahahaaha, magnetism is certainly yielding a lot of words for you, anon. I'm fairly impressed.

GG, it's funny, everyone else has already discovered the wonders of Levain and these cookies. I can't believe how late I am to this party. Hope your cookies are great!
