There are two things you should never talk about. You should never talk about religion or politics if you get to along with people. However, I feel this issue with Australian politics needs to be addressed, so listen up!
I do not know how you Americans can do it. You must have the patience of gods or something. I am talk about your patience to stand the campaign ads when voting in government.
For those who do not live on Australian Soil, we are currently days away from voting in a new Prime minister (we are still under Britain’s control, so ye no president). However, it has only been a week of intense campaigning and I am sick of it. Yes even me the Girl who is (better, thanks to your get well wishes! but still ill) is sick of the billboards, commercials and annoying radio ads. Either they are promoting the hell out of themselves or slamming the other side.
Even the organisations of private policy have got on in to the act. The hard core religious nuts, teachers, public service workers… Everyone got a message for you to vote for or support. Even Mother Nature is telling me to vote to save her. The worse part is being sent letters “personality” asking you to vote for them like they have not sent that same letter to hundreds of others. Yes, we know you do not care enough to even sign it for real.
I think I might be strange or something but the more message that are fired at me the more I do not want to vote for them. Sort a like the teenager’s and men’s rebellious streaks. If you tell them to do something, 100% they will not do it; however disprove and they are all about that behaviour.
Fake smiles, kissing babies, pretending to care about the working class… *burf*
I think babies in Australia are thankful they will no longer be used as emotional tool to pull votes. Also I am not sure if you have seen our running candidates for PM, but they are U.G.L.Y… I think you guys in the USA have it good with Obama; we just have three grey old men.
No I do not believe your hand shake with minority person is real, No I do not believe you care about education or health.
Finally, for the love of all things good, if you are going to target refugees at least pick one side. They are lazy and stealing money or they are working and taking jobs. They cannot be both! Sorry… Really passionate about this topic.
We do not have a choice not to vote, so I am either going to have to vote for a bigot, a racist or a clown. Lovely…. Just lovely…. I am not looking forward to the 8th of September.
Getting me all angry over politics, not good. I think this means cookie time. Not just any cookie time. GIANT cookie time with childhood candies. Even at the ripe age of 21 I still have a love for M&Ms, I think it is the pretty colours.
Giant M&M cookies we use to get at the baker always remind me of these. They always were soft baked, chewy and sometimes if you got there before 8am, they would still have warmth of the oven on them. Perfect moments that made school a bit more bearable. Of course with time, I forgot about these types of cookies; mainly because I discovered that money does not grow on trees and the bakery had the close its doors.
I am talking inspiration from Cake spy when she posted these bits of cookie monster cookies; instantly I love the name and the concept. Big old cookies with blue bits in it, to represent a chopped up cookie monster. We all love a bit of cannibalism don’t we? An it being near Halloween, what better to call these Cookie monster massacre cookies? Fitting name for them right?
These are made from a simple recipe; no chilling, no complex flours. Just good old fashion cookies which have over 400g of M&Ms in them… Yep you heard me two packets. Soft baked cookie studded with candy coated chocolates which deliver a satisfying mouth off of sweetness in every bite. Serve them with some milk or even if you are feeling evil; serve with strawberry milk or red food coloured milk. You can pretend cookie monster is still bleeding into your drink as you dip. ;)
