Today was a good day with our friend, The Tater. First, we went on a short hike through part of the Appalachian Trail. It was a beautiful hike, even though it was wet and chilly out. The Boyfriend snapped some pics, but the uploading will have to wait until I'm back in California (I left the USB cable at home!).
Afterwards it was lunch at a local deli where I got myself a black and white cookie. Oh sweet Jesus in heaven, it was beyond incredible. For those of you who live outside of the northeast United States, a black and white cookie is more "cake-like" in texture and painted half with white frosting and half with chocolate. If I was crazy enough to go into business for myself, I'd set up a bakery in southern California and sell these things all day. Part of me thinks it would take off and I'd be an overnight millionaire. Another part of me just thinks all the women would come in and ask me if I had low-fat, low-carb, vegan cookies. Seriously, sometimes California really sucks.
Tomorrow it's back to The Boyfriend's parents and prepping for Thanksgiving. I plan to nurse the sinus cold I now have (le sigh) and pick up Lonesome Dove again. Of course, I haven't read anymore than the first 100 pages. What can I say, Tater and The Boyfriend got me liquored up last night and I was completely good for nothing.
