Relatives.

Can't live with 'em, can't duct-tape them to the couch and forbid them to ever go shopping again as long as they live.

Last night, as we plowed through the Tim-Tams that Bells sent (for the uninitiated, Tim-Tams are two chocolate wavers, with chocolate cream between, dipped in chocolate), I admitted that I knew where to get them here on the mainland, but I never did, because I didn't want to weigh eight hundred pounds. The Goob had the last of Bells cookies this morning. "Oooo, chokat fo bweafast!"

Today, the husbeast and his father went out to run some errands. Next thing I knew?

Maybe I'll try locking them in the yarn closet next time.

You must do a tim tam slam

*sigh*

Now I want a mint slice! At least they're easily obtained here in Sydney.

Bells said...

Yes, do the Tim Tam Slam (or Tim Tam Suck as it's also known).

Bite the end off one, stick it in your tea and suck the tea up through the tim tam. It's fabulous. Warning: it can disintergrate.

And now I know you can buy them, i'll have to find something else for future packages.

I second what bells said, you can also do this with chocolate teddy bear biscuits, bite off one ear and one foot and place end in glass of Baileys or Cadburys chocolate liqueur and suck....too good! Welcome to the dark side!
Of course a wiggly dance or two should burn off some calories.

Oooo, chokat fo wunch!

There are worse things they could have brought back. But if you don't want those goodies, I'm sure you could find takers out here in the blogverse.

Enablers! Yay for them. The goodies look wonderful and of course you should enjoy them with out guilt. And a salmon colored zen sweater sounds like it would be a good pick me up for the dreary fall days.

Grandparents are supposed to spoil people, silly. You can go back to being virtuous when Grandma and Grandpa go home. Tsk, mothers.

Oh, yeah, I agree with Roxie about the lunch menu, and more Goob pix, please!
