My Brother-In-Law Is Dead To Me

>> Monday, December 29, 2008

Matt, my brother-in-law (who is the other half of Team Happy Pants), recently was a part of a “Holiday Cookie Swap.”

Sounds nice, right?

Recently, the jerk dropped off what he didn’t want after the swap took place:

That’s seven dozen cookies and a brick of fudge that could single-handedly take down both trainers from The Biggest Loser! Yes, both Bob and Jillian. Here, let’s get a close-up of that fudge:

The funny thing is that I really don’t like chocolate. But I LOVE fudge! Explain that!

Matt, I don’t need all that crap. Thanks. Thanks a lot. You’re dead to me.

p.s. Hey Matt, who made the fudge? If she’s single, I’ll leave your sister for her. What’s her number? And if it’s a guy, I’m pretty sure I could put up with the “unpleasantries” of a relationship with a man as long as he makes that fudge for me every once and a while...

Omg, that fudge does look amazing!! That's a lot of running to burn that off. *gulp*

Pbear 2:59 AM, December 29, 2008  

Heh. That would make you a fudge packer.

joyRuN 6:21 AM, December 29, 2008  

LOL! You like fudge THAT much, eh? I love the Rocky Road variety with walnuts & marshmallows. Mmmmmm.... Good thing I don't know how to make the sinful suckers.

Marlene 7:37 AM, December 29, 2008  

Oh boy, that looks like trouble.

D10 7:42 AM, December 29, 2008  

I could eat fudge everyday and not get sick of it.

Shannon 7:48 AM, December 29, 2008  

You secretly got heart palpitations when you saw that load come through the door, admit it!

This year I decided not to make cookies, because we just don't need cookies.

Anyway...apparently my mother-in-law heard of this plan and had to save christmas for her grandkids.

And we got a load of cookies in the mail. Kinda like the spread you are showing here.

Not happy. Not happy at all.

I am pretty sure that my cholesterol level has gone up at least 50 points since Thanksgiving. Cookies, pies, pumpkin name it, I've eaten it. Thank goodness for Jan 1st and the return to full time training! Happy New Year.

Meg 8:11 AM, December 29, 2008  

Fudge is probably like it because it tastes more like pure sugar than chocolate!

Gotta Run 8:14 AM, December 29, 2008  

How much does that brick weigh?? That is insane and looks yummy!!

Matt sucks!!! :)

Kelly 8:52 AM, December 29, 2008  

AHAHAH. Fudge is easy to make, I think it's on every package of Hersey's cocoa. Try it!

Kim 9:03 AM, December 29, 2008  

mmmmmm fudddddgeeeeeeeee. gimme gimme gimme!

J~Mom 9:05 AM, December 29, 2008  

That stuff would be nothing to me. Now if it were chips and french fries we would all be in trouble. :>P

Vickie 9:20 AM, December 29, 2008  

Take all that stuff to work! Everyone will love you.

X-Country2 9:45 AM, December 29, 2008  

I took one bite from everything and threw the rest away. It hurt, but it had to be done.

Get well soon!

Fizzgig 9:47 AM, December 29, 2008  

uhhhhhh that was messed up of him. I didn't even make one single cookie for tht reason! temptation. I don't want it!

Amy 10:16 AM, December 29, 2008  

I wish we lived closer cause I'd gladly take those desserts off your hands. Hope you and Pharmie had a wonderful Christmas!

Maggs 10:52 AM, December 29, 2008  

Here's what I don't get...that your brother in law didn't want the fudge himself. What's his deal?

the gazelle 10:58 AM, December 29, 2008  

I also don't really like chocolate, but do like fudge. That was very evil.....but the GOOD kind of evil. :)

Karen 11:28 AM, December 29, 2008  

There is a dirty joke somewhere in that post--fudge&"unpleasantries".
You get my drift.

Benson 11:38 AM, December 29, 2008  

All those yummy goodies have no affect on me.
No really, I. can. resist.
I. can. re.......

Oh shit, send me some now, I'll help you 'get rid of it.'

jen 11:55 AM, December 29, 2008  

Mmmmmm fudge. I haven't had it in a while.

To be honest I threw out some perfectly good holiday treats. It was the only solution.

Sarah 12:02 PM, December 29, 2008  

The upside of having no family - and a snow storm ruin Christmas - I have ZERO christmas goodies. no cookies. no fudge. no temptation.

Viper 12:17 PM, December 29, 2008  

Hide it in a drawer. Out of sight, out of mind. Except for that fudge. That might go bad ...

Wedgie 12:19 PM, December 29, 2008  

You can send it all to me. I have no issues with giving up on my "diet". Actually, cookies and fudge are already part of my diet anyway.

Glaven Q. Heisenberg 12:31 PM, December 29, 2008  

Your brother-in-law gave ME nothing! So he's dead to ME, too!

Tell him that! But first, tell him who I am, viz., some anonymous weirdo on the Internet. Then, once he's intrigued by that (which he will be) ...


Tell him!!1!

Jenna 1:03 PM, December 29, 2008  

That is one hell of a brick of fudge!! Freeze the goodies and feast on them after every long run all year long - then he can live, you can stay with Pharmie and you will not have to tolerate the aspects of a male male relationship that might find you cowering in a corner somewhere :)

Ashley 1:19 PM, December 29, 2008  

Heh I'm quite the opposite! I LOVE chocolate but cannot stand fudge. Have fun with all those sweets!

Keith 1:49 PM, December 29, 2008  

I love fudge too. Where did you say you lived again?

Kelly 1:49 PM, December 29, 2008  

I love chocolate, but hate fudge.

Brian 2:01 PM, December 29, 2008  

It looks like one of my gifts from the season. A fudge making kit. I like chocolate and fudge and pretty much anything with mounds of sugar. I'll even sacrifice for corn syrup

Charlotte 2:34 PM, December 29, 2008  

Now I'm craving fudge too. Thanks for spreading the love Steve. Thanks a lot.

Anonymous,  3:21 PM, December 29, 2008  

I made it, and I'm a MAN.

So, Deal!

P.S. Regarding the "unpleasentries." As Joe E. Brown put it, in a movie you really ought to watch (something tells me you OWN it), "Nobody's perfect." Your spelling, for example....

P.S. We'll make "Pharmacy" our butler, just like that guy in another great movie, by the same director....

Triteacher 7:23 PM, December 29, 2008  

I'd disown the guy too. Although if I really followed that rule religiously, I'd be without family before long. It is SUCH a midwestern thing to feed people!

RooBabs 7:36 PM, December 29, 2008  

What a jerk! Jeez, who does that? Really, it's cruel and unusual. Dang those cookies on the far left, and the ones with the hershey kisses look so good. Mmmm. Maybe I should go eat dinner.

I hope you feel better soon!!

Eric 9:49 PM, January 03, 2009  

Unpleasantries......that's funny :-)
