Good Doggie

Are you still wondering why I'm only talking about fudge? Click here. I'm not sure what it will link you to; I just chose a random URL. But honestly, if you haven't figured out by now that this is my annual salute to marshmallow fudge, then it probably won't matter anyway.

December 8:

You're preparing roughly 1,739 "plates o' goodies" to distribute to the neighbors, who will return the favor by reporting you to the Homeowners' Association when your kids' basketball hoop remains in the driveway longer than 2 1/2 minutes.

(You may want the dog to deliver the "fudge" to some of the more cantankerous residents, although you'll very conscientiously keep her on a leash as per H.A. Regulation 436692 sub-paragraph Q line-item twelve "Domestic Animal Restraint Constraints", because you know the rules are there to benefit all of us.)

Is your dog gonna be able to make it over hill over dale to grandma's house? That's me ya know.
Will he slobber on this alleged delicious fudge?
I look forward to meeting the dawg.

Signed,
Anxiously awaiting fudge...in Idaho

I'm now on my 3rd batch of fudge. Last night was caramel cashew...yummy. Thanks for helping me think fudge constantly.

It's not even 10 am and I already have several reasons for needing fudge today. I may blog about it instead of hijack here.

I have tried everything to get reported, nothing works. Maybe I need to hang a flag somewhere. That seems to work.

I am very sorry I haven't commented much on your odes to fudge. While I shouldn't be dieting over the holiday, I have gained 15 pounds in November alone and decided I've got to just stop already. And your fudge praise makes it difficult. Today I am feeling strong, and do not have an sweetened condensed milk on hand anyway, so I can now read. :)

And boy. I'm thrilled not to have an HOA anymore.

Ah, HOAs, the great necessary evil. I have to remind myself that even though we're perfect, everyone else has problems and thank goodness there's someone I can call when they're stepping out of line.

My dog would never make it, he has such a sweet tooth! Of course, I would never get it all delivered either ......

There's a few people my dog might deliver the goods to. =P

You're way nicer than me. I suck at neighbor gifts. =[

Jessica needs to eat about 3 batches of fudge a day!

And I suck at neighbor gifts, too. I'm good at accepting them and feeling like a schmuck, though!

Fudge?! Oh no, that's something else I'm going to have to add to my list!! Curse. You.
