Day 143 – Of Chocolate Chunk Cookies & Buddy the Elf

Day 143.

Nothing earth-shattering about today’s Every Day with Chick-fil-A, although I did see on my buddy’s Facebook page that he witnessed a proposal while getting his own (paid for) Chick-fil-A. Without his permission I’m posting here:

everydaywithchickfilaI really can’t think of a better place to get engaged.  The food is good, the people are friendly, and where else can you get a stuffed, life-size cow to participate in this momentous occasion? Good times were had by all, I’m sure.

It seems as though everyone and their mother is going to see Elf tonight (after their Chick-fil-A dinners), so I’m a little bummed that I’m not there as well. Elf has iconic status in many homes around Christmastime, and ours is no different. It will be sad to watch without my sister who is teaching at a school in Senegal, West Africa, but she’d be disappointed if we didn’t say, “Bye buddy, hope you find your dad” about 9000 times over the three or four days the fam will be together.

Oh, you wanted to see that clip right now? No worries:

As you can see, I’m easily distracted without much material tonight. In fact, I had a multi-comment Facebook thread this evening solely on the topic of Elf.  Facebook and Elf can seriously waste some time.

Earlier we had to take a family jaunt to Wally World to buy three different lasagnas, cook them and compare them.  The things we get paid to do.  As such, by the time my CFA run came around, it was Cookie Time!

Yes, a 6-pk of Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies will be just fine, thank you very much. I’d like to publicly thank my guy Colby and gal Jessica for the great service tonight. Just as long as no fires are being started, you guys can take as long as you want to get my my cookies. 😉
