Friday Fluff

1. I made these cookies two nights ago and have yet to bake them; that happens today.  Can't wait to see how they come out.  

2. I'm slowly but surely making my way through Infinite Jest. I'm well past the 200-page mark, which is, apparently, the magic point. I'm digging the story--in fact I'm hooked--and continue to encounter words I never knew existed, e.g. 

formication (yes, with an "m")

I will have you know that out of that modest list, Blogger's built-in spell check flagged all but "sobriquet" as either a non-word or misspelled. Who, I ask you, has the nerve to walk around with this kind of vocabulary (the author being dead and all notwithstanding. Too bad really, because he would have been my new boyfriend.)? 

I'm also keeping track of quotes I like. Thus far, this is one of my favorites: 

"What looks like the cage's exit is actually the bars of the cage."  p. 222* 

3. Do you remember these?  

4. This is an excellent site.  

Song of the week:
