The cookies I made for today's cookie exchange turned out all right. I tried to make red and green sugar cookies, but I was paranoid about food coloring causing cancer, so I didn't put enough in. They're more like pink and lime green. I also don't have fancy cookie cutters, so they're just circles. The ladies at the party (I was the only dude there other than sweet_bread's husband and toddler) joked that the colors had more of a Miami Vice theme. I now have a lifetime supply of cookies.
The turnout for trivia was pretty poor tonight. Scott and I went, and Mark and Carmen were there with their daughter. The only other team was a couple who I did not recognize. I think they were just pulled in from the bar.
I got an email from a guy who says he is in the process of buying the old house on Wabash. He wants to talk about the house, so we're meeting on Sunday. I sensed from what he said that he doesn't have extensive home renovation experience, so I hope he's independently wealthy.
Stacey put photos of the cookie exchange on Facebook that I can now steal:
