    There are no tragedies quite like bad dessert tragedies. I feel for you weezie.

    I have however lured Ymo into becoming an actor by promising brownies.

    Speaking of desserts, I had maple syrup cotton candy at the Sheep and Wool Festival last weekend. I don't go in for cotton candy much anymore but the maple syrup variety was a pleasant surprise, yum! Plus it's looks like you're eating sheep fleece so it was fun to weird people out with the beige cotton candy.

    Oh great. Regale me with tales of outstanding sweet treats that are just out of reach. Especially at the fabled "Sheep and Wool Festival."

    There should be a law.........

    Great job, Ymo! You're our hero. I'm sure it detracts from your posting time but a great showing to help out another DBR faithful!

    Goose Island has 2 brewpubs in the north Chicago area and they have a great selection of their standards plus many seasonals and specialty ales on draft, at least they did last summer when we were in Chicago. Plus, they had a Stilton burger which was outrageously flavored. Their sampler is not available when the Cubbies are playing. Oh, wait a minute, the Cubbies AREN'T playing, so I'd start with their sampler and then pick another ale or 3 to try and report back promptly.

    Blech.
    99%. Never heard of such a concentration. I am a chocoholic and the highest I've ever seen has been about 75% and I thought that was rather bitter and brittle.

    Ooh, thanks, you two, for reminding me that I have some Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate covered mini-graham crackers to dig into!

    And way to go, Ymo, helping out a damsel/director in distress.

    I just reread your first post, 99% cocoa!?! What were you thinking?

    You're welcome to come to next year's New York Sheep and Wool Festival. I'll even teach you how to knit. And the next time you are in Boston, I'll bake you a nice custard. No chocolate but definitely not a dessert tragedy. Or an apple pie. I hate to brag but I make absolutely wonderful apple pies.

    It does state in my contract that they can only use one word to describe my performance and it must be chosen from the following three:

    Masterful, brilliant, oustanding
    Then let me say your performance will be oustanding!

    Good for you in agreeing to help out a fellow DBRer. You must be a remarkable gentleman.

    Oooh - can I get in on this offer? I love to go to The Yarn Shop - the textures and colors are so much fun to see. I keep thinking I'll learn to knit - so I have a variety of yarns in my house to make scarves. I better get started.

    Which offer, the knitting or the custard? Or both?

    By the way, is it just me, or has the quality of bra you can buy at Victoria's Secret declined?

    I haven't noticed a difference. Are you talking in general or a specific style?

    Was it ever any good?

    (Only items I care for out of that store are the really comfy night shirts, and the obligatory skimpy stuff....)

    The timer is on awaiting EarlJam's response to this with some further discussions about his blue stockings

    I always have to shield my eyes when I walk by those stores.

    Why? Afraid you might see that must-have item that they don't have in your size?

    Oh so briefly was I Alaa!

    Anyway, I used to have this WonderBra that I absolutely adored. I wore that thing out. I've never had another I liked as well. Having kids sent me away from the store for a couple of years and when I went back, it just wasn't the same. Sigh. What is a good bra store anyway?
