As I lay on my round velvet bed, thinking of Mr. R I got a text from both of my gnomies. Their kind words comforted me during a hard time. My friends, there will be certain things that we go through in life that seem insurmountable but we can't ever forget one truth; we are not alone. In our darkest moments, those dearest to you will buoy you up.

On another note: I spent last night not sleeping and instead watching Big Bang Theory bloopers--which was really awesome for my adrenal fatigue. But I tell you, it made me want to be on that show. You get the sense that these people LOVE working together. Look at how easily they laugh! Look at how they give each other knowing looks, as if they grew up together. I love that!

But the thing is, we're each testing the waters of What Works And What We Can Contribute To The World. And it's still evolving. It's interesting to me how some people can throw something out there and, WHAM! It settles into exactly what they need it to be. Like my friend Robin of Rurification fame. Or April of Flour Water Yeast & Salt. Us Gnomies? We're still getting there--at least in terms of The World.
Well, just to show you that I still have faith in everyone, and that I'm totally not worried about anyone looking fat, I am going to include a favorite recipe of mine right here on this blog. Ready? (This is actually a recipe from our dearest of darling friends, Loraine Scott, authoress of the Summer Winter Murder Mystery Series. Which is highly appropriate since these cookies will kill you all the way dead from their chocolateness. Seriously. Wicked.)
Now, run along and have a nice, healthy, organized, successful day. And enjoy this blog background because it will likely change soon. I'll be back sometime this week because I can't shut up.
Later, 'maters! Hearts!
(And hey, if you're interested in reading more thoughts, check out today's post on my other blog: The Movie Police. Literally.)

Actually, they're already there. According to the Los Angeles Times, more than 2000 gnomes have popped up all over the city. Don't be fooled by their pernicious cuteness (because they are pretty darn cute). That's all part of the Oakland Gnomes' plan. Today it's just Oakland, but tomorrow, it's the world!
In other news, Prehistoric Shamanism is a neat little blog I've been following for awhile. Every post manages to satisfy both my inner history and mythology nerds at once. The author, Mike Williams, is an archaeologist and a practicing shaman. He also lives in Wales, which always earns bonus points in my book. Thanks to Prehistoric Shamanism, I learned that today is King Frost Day, when the citizens of London used to celebrate winter by holding a "frost fair" out on the ice of the frozen River Thames. Who knew?
So, Happy King Frost Day, everybody! And if you live in Oakland, watch out for those Gnomes!
