Aw, crumb...

*Brushes off keyboard*


I don't cook.

If it were entirley up to me (and thankfully, it isn't) I would subsist on things bagged, boxed, nuked and ordered by phone. Yup I have wicked mad culinary skillz when it comes to opening things and punching buttons.

Oh yeah - there's also the Tassimo coffee maker. I can work that sucker like I'm some kinda wizard let me tell you... Okay - so it also consists of puching buttons. Okay, actually, just one button. It's all in the wrist-action! Not just anybody can do that, you know...

Beyond my beloved Tassimo - or "Coffee-Bot" as I like to call it - my writing sustenance, on the days when I am home and usually hunkered down in The Nook (er - that would be my office), consists of whatever my darling food-make-goer brings me. It's actually a pretty sweet deal.

There I am, typing away. Suddenly, something smells good. I look down and lo, behold, there is a dish of yummy food at my elbow. It's like magic. Today it was macaroni and white cheddar for lunch. Dinner was blackened chicken and vegetables. It's like the Faerie have come and left me sneaky magic Faerie Food while I was busy typing! Which is only appropriate, considering the kind of books I'm writing.

Beyond that, any further nosh is whatever I can eat one-handed without getting too many crumbs on the keyboard. Be advised, recent experiments pretty much rules out further forays into the Lay's Sour Cream and Onion bag.

:( I want a fairie to bring me some food.I find it bothersome to have to actually leave the keybord and cook...or should I say reheat.I mean where the heck are my fairie people?I'm telling you these dang flying monkey's better step up there game or they're butts are out.Not really I tend to like my flying monkeys as they fly over and b*slap people for me.It's what they do.

Also one food you should never eat at the key bord is doritos.Fingers get cheesy and the keys turn from black to black & orange speckled. If I ever go missing they could probably take my prints from the cheese prints.LOL.

Mac and cheese...I think the faeries themselves invented that!

You are a lucky, lucky girl. I want those faeries to come to my house. Do they do dishes too?!!
