Cookies & Hair & Deer, Oh My!



Chocolate chip is my favorite kind of cookie. At least, my favorite kind that isn’t sold by little girls in green.

(Did anyone else just notice the resemblance between Girl Scouts and Leprechauns?)


(Well, you’re missing out.)

Yet the making of chocolate chip cookies leads to my least favorite chore.

Washing dishes.

That’s why, when presented with the opportunity to skip a scrubbing, you should grab it with both hands, clawing frantically to make sure it doesn’t escape.

In other words – who needs spatulas?



I found this photo on my laptop this morning.

I took it to see if you could tell I hadn’t brushed my hair.

Looking at it, you can clearly tell.

But I know myself well enough to be sure there was no post-photo brushing.

So let’s just pretend it looks good, okay?



I have a coworker who’s scared of deer.

Our office is in the woods.

Hence, she believes the deer are watching her – there’s something about their eyes but I don’t pay enough attention to remember.

So it was obviously our duty as her coworkers to foster good relations between her and deer-kind.

Guess Who


The next Recommended Reading will be a video.

I’m somewhat nervous about it, as it turns out I move my mouth funny when I talk.

(Oh, and I have a strange accent.)

(Are you excited already?)

Four random glimpses into my life,

    Deer are a little creepy. I grew up in an area with a lot of deer and you would see them through the window. The deer would look up and make eye contact with these lifeless black eyes. They were so calm. Scary.

    Deer are not scary. Deer are pretty. Now GOATS – goats are scary. Talk about creepy eyes. (Shudder)

    I love it that you tease your co-worker.

  • Stephanie @ Our Marriage Adventure March 16, 2011, 10:50 am

    Your co-worker should come visit me! Two goat farms, several cow pastures, a horse farm x 10, and so many deer its a wonder you aren’t playing bumper car with them and that’s just my commute to work!

  • Little Wife on the Prairie March 16, 2011, 10:58 am

    Are you telling me that you are posting a video of yourself? I-CAN’T-WAIT! I have been so curious to hear your “accent”.

  • Lance March 16, 2011, 11:01 am

    I didn’t have issues with deer until last October when a buck ran out in front of my car and caused 7k in damages. Now, I have put deer on my enemies list with Oprah, Bon Jovi, mint ice cream, the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots (Im a Jets fan).

    Oatmeal raisin > chocolate chip always

    Oh the deer thing is very funny. I think your hair looked fine and why do you have an accent?

  • Buckeroomama March 16, 2011, 11:33 am

    LOL, now these are totally, absolutely random!! =)

  • Elena March 16, 2011, 11:52 am

    First, I share your love for chocolate chip and despise doing the dishes as well! Second, I love the little deer and note to your coworker. I’m terrified of all animals and am the recipient of several pranks that are hysterical. Too funny!

    Hi Megan 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today because I followed you back here and discovered another awesome blog to add to my list of Must-Reads. I love your attitude and sense of humor so I am definitely subscribing!!

    I wouldn’t worry about the hair. At least you haven’t started slipping yourself roofies so that you can take photos of yourself in the nude. But if you have, remember that sharing is caring.

  • SpilledInkGuy March 16, 2011, 12:41 pm

    I often have nightmares about deer making fun of me for not brushing my hair. 🙂

  • Binky March 16, 2011, 12:44 pm

    The deer aren’t watching you. They’re watching your cookies. Deer love cookies, especially chocolate chip.

  • mindy@thesuburbanlife March 16, 2011, 2:32 pm

    When I first read you blog title and then saw the picture of chocolate chip cookies, I had to take a second look. I was trying to figure out if you had somehow whipped up a batch of cookies featuring deer meat. I know. Stupid. Relieved that you didn’t. Also relieved you didn’t put hair in them. Again. I know. Stupid. I’m a real hoot on April Fool’s Day. =)

    If you asked my dad, he’d say that it all ends up in the same place, so it doesn’t matter if the food looks “pretty” before going in. 🙂

  • Laura March 16, 2011, 5:11 pm

    My favorite part about eating homemade chocolate chip cookies is the part where I grab it before it’s all set up and it falls apart in my hand while I blow on it, trying to remove molten chocolate from my fingers and trying to shove it all in my mouth at once. It’s a delicate, delicious balance…

  • Mad Woman behind the Blog March 16, 2011, 6:09 pm

    Randomness at its best. Part of the chore I like the least: waiting for the damn cookies to cook. A CHORE, I tell ya.

    Deer are delightful. Turkeys are a whole other ballgame. We’ve got both outside my GLASS office door. Have that coworker come take a visit. I’ll scare her straight.

  • Trinity March 16, 2011, 6:12 pm

    I love the messy hair picture! Hey, models do it all the time so I don’t see why you shouldn’t be able to!

  • Saimi March 16, 2011, 7:51 pm

    Between your cookies and Laura’s comment my mouth is drooling, I can taste and smell those warm home baked cookies now….I happen to love watching deer, I think they are so beautiful and sleek. Where I grew up it wasn’t uncommon to see them grazing in our yard.

    Anyway just thought I’d stop by!

  • Jessica March 16, 2011, 8:21 pm

    Laughing so hard at the deer torture pic and after reading the title I was scanning the chocolate chip cookie picture, thinking there was a hair in there. Yuck.

  • alonewithcats March 16, 2011, 10:10 pm

    You are such a dear.

  • blackhuff March 17, 2011, 3:23 am

    Hi. Thanx for visiting my blog 🙂
    Such a nice glimps into your life.

  • Jo and the Novelist March 17, 2011, 6:06 am

    Chocolate chip cookies are the only kind of cookies!! Or at least they are in England. Just another reason you should move here. We class all those other things as “biscuits” which you have to say in a British accent or it just sounds wrong…

  • Cool Dad March 17, 2011, 11:14 am

    I loooove chocolate chip cookies. Did you celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Week last week? I did. 🙂
