Blog-Slacking, Virtual Birthday, An Old Man, Corner Gas, and Christmas Lights: 7 Quick Takes - Vol. 18

Wow, I haven't participated in 7 Quick Takes in longer than I like to admit.  Actually, I haven't even blogged in a couple of months.  Geez, what a slacker!  Oh well, better late than never, I guess.  Plus, after this long, I'm bound to actually have 7 things to write about, right?

It's birthday time around these parts.  

Not mine though, so no presents for me.  :(

However, I get to give other people presents, so that's awesome!  I like making people feel special on their birthdays.
My sister's birthday was last week, and she got some super special, home-made-by-me cookies.  Baking is definitely not my thing (it's far to fussy with all those "exact measurements"), so this was definitely a labor of love.  I made dark-chocolate chip and marshmallow cookies, which I (very un-originally) called S'mores cookies.  Man, were they good!  Especially the gooeyness of the marshmallows right after they came out of the oven.  Yum!

I used this recipe, which I randomly found on the internet.  I love you, Google!
