Here, Have A SARS Cookie...



I love that I spent all Sunday afternoon baking cookies, and that when I brought them to work yesterday as a nice holiday gesture, no one ate them. (OK, not NO one, but practically no one) I think people hate me.

I don't have cooties, I don't smell, and I don't have any open sores. I am a nice person and pretty easy to get along with. And I can openly say that the cookies--a trio of chocolate chip cookies, black and white cookies, and seven-layer bars--were decent. Not out of this world, but decent.

Today, I put them in a more visible place and they're almost all gone. Maybe rats ate them. Or maybe not. But at least they're being eaten and I can finally sleep again.

They would have disappeared in an instant in my office. With half of them finding their way into my belly. What are the layers in the 7-layer bars? I'm more familiar with the layers of the Taco Bell 7-Layer Burrito than a 7-layer bar cookie.

They'd disappear in a puff of smoke and the rapid patter of running feet if you put them here where I work.

We need co-workers like you!

Same here. There is something about free food/snacks at my office that make my coworkers faces light up as though they haven't eaten in days.

"It's delicious Taisho"... It's delicious Pam ;-) (see my entry to your 'The Twelve Courses Of Omakase: Azami Sushi Cafe, West Hollywood', the link to 8min video Sarah's got up on her Slashfood entry).

I would have at least eaten more than my fair share of choc. chip cookies, unless they were truly awful. But are those blk/wh cookies made with Belgian Callebaut white & dark choc? Maybe if there was someway to make them into a Yin-Yang design?

Hmm, well I know it's holiday season, and these things are very popular this time of year; but maybe the new coworkers are just too shy about a new hire bringing in cookies right away? I'm sure once they get used to you cursing them out on a regular basis, they'll feel like you are more 'one of the gang'... Doh! ;) I mean, who could hate Pam with that oh so sassy 'tude? ;)

I'm thinking I have to make a rotating animated gif for my profile pic.; 7-layer Burrito from Taco Bell... I think I'm going to be sick *ewww*.

I think it's unanimous (except those who are painfully trying to keep their waistline from exploding) for the Daily Gluttony readers, they'd all love to have a coworker like Pam (so when are you going to bring in the kimchee???)... and that they'd not get as much work done either, lol ;).

Ooo yes, can you work in my office too? =)

Adam,

7-Layer Bars consist of graham cracker crumbs, butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, walnuts, condensed milk and coconut. Just to fuck w/ people, I should make bars out of the 7-layer burrito ingredients, put a layer of coconut on it and bake it.
That'll show 'em! LOL!

Elmo,

Gee thanks! See, I'm not that bad of a coworker!

~a~,

Girl, so that I don't waste my time, I'll bring them over to your house next time!

LA Cheese,

I'm giving it a month of cushion before I start w/ the kimchee. I've only been here a week and a half! LOL!

Kristy,

Do you have any jobs? hee hee!

People wont stop bringing in cookies to my office and I cant stop eating them. I just want the holidays to be over so I can expend my calorie consumption on something other than cookies. That being said, I would eat those 7 layer cookies in a second.

Sylvie said...

You must work with a lot of diet conscious people. Cookies don't last very long when I bring them in as I have a few big guys who would gobble them all down if i didn't hide them in an attempt for the other shifts to get a few.

Don't take it personal.

Pam,

Just so you know, they went damn quick when Isaac brought some in here at our work. I thought you did a great job of making them-yummy. I more then ate my share.

Thanks!!!! :)

Mealcentric,

Next time, I'll just send them to your office. Address? LOL!

Sylvie,

In fact, that was the excuse that two of the girls gave me when I walked the plate over to them! I'm like, "It's the holidays! Have a little fun, ya know?"

Alt,

At first I was like "WHO'S ALT?" But now I know! Gee thanks, I'm glad you guys liked them! Next time, they're all going over your way!
