i love fall. bonus: free cookie!

[note] The gist of this post is: If you leave a comment, I will mail you a cookie. There is no catch. That is all. You don't really have to read the rest if you don't want to. [end note]

I like fall because I can turn on my oven and not want to die. Not in, like, a Sylvia Plath oven-death kind of way; rather in an I Do Not Like It When My Kitchen Is 130 Degrees And I Am Hyperbolic way.

Anyway today's temperature high was 71, and 71 is only TWO DEGREES AWAY from being "in the sixties," and the sixties, temperature-wise, means fall. Fall means ovens turn on, on-ovens mean baking things, and the best and most wonderful things to bake are, obviously, cookies.

I would like to bake some cookies, but I have the eternal problem of who to make them for. Mr. B likes Nutter Butters a lot, so I once made him a batch of from-scratch nutter butters (lowercased because they are not actually the brand-name store-bought variety, because I made them myself from scratch and included in the recipe my [metaphorical] blood sweat and love) and they were met with a judgment of "these are almost as good as the real thing," so basically I will never make cookies for Mr. B again.

My friends and roommates are also obvious cookie targets, but they have finite consumption abilities and I have a near-infinite baking ability, so basically here is the point: post a comment and I will mail you a cookie. It would also help if you gave me your address, but that's up to you. It will probably be oatmeal chocolate-chip, because that is the best cookie in the world.

I am not the kind of man to look a gift cookie in the mouth. If this is still rolling past mid-december, I can just come over and pick it up.

Helen! I'll take a cookie (though only if you really feel like it) but check my facebook for my address because I feel odd about posting it publicly- Brookes

Agreed that oatmeal choco chip are the best cookies in the entire world. I LOVE HELEN. p.s. my address is getting emailed to you. <3<3<3

Now this is the way to Blog!!! Helen, everytime I read your blog I get inspired to start my own. But then I am overcome with doubt and self loathing . . . but just maybe I'll actually go through with it this time.
I also love fall, but mainly because I enjoy tweed, burnt orange, silk blouses, and any business casual outfit which combines all three.

I would like a cookie and the head in an oven Plath t-shirt you designed back in ye olde days of Haven. I feel no shame posting my address on the Internet, although I think you can find it on Facebook.

I wanted to come up with something wittier than "I'd like a cookie," but as it turns out, I'm not that witty.

On the other hand, as of Tuesday, I can explain why your offer of a cookie for a comment is binding upon my sending of acceptance in the prescribed manner. I'll have a cookie or I'll see you in court...
