The inimitable Ms. Lee and I will be feeding our jetlag this morning at Baked, home of the stonut. Those of you in the greater metropolitan area who've recently returned from abroad and who find yourselves inexplicably awake at *checks watch* 3 a.m. or so should consider yourselves invited along to join us.

If you're good, we might even play Name That Illegal Substance.

And now, in theory, I sleep.

If I can't talk about my sex life in the journals, how come you get to talk about eating stonuts? Huh?

I feel like I need a stonut. To get me through my crippling disappointment at having no Red Sox to watch today, and the Jays winning. But I want one now, not at 3am.

(and no, children, I'm not saying I'm going to have one. Wanting something and actually following through are two different things.)

...We're not stoned, the bakers are?

And their customers. But not us. Unless you count jetlag.

(You're a baseball person?)

Why would you want someone stoned to make you things that you're going to eat? You actually trust them to follow recipes? And not poison you?

I have a certain loyalty to the Boston Red Sox, yes.

Mark makes very -very- good brownies. They were perfect, even after I fell into the sofa.

Well, okay, but I trust Tiger. Plus, I'm assuming that he bakes in a place where he can be seen so that were I to partake of his brownies I would be able to observe and know that he wasn't putting random things into them. Even if I didn't observe, I would trust him. It's different than some strange stoned bakers baking things in some back room somewhere.

Plus, brownies are better than donuts, any day.

I think that brownies and donuts each have their place. I would not want a brownie for breakfast but donuts make very good breakfast.

They've got the munchies. It makes them very concerned with getting it right.

Besides, their bear claws are amazing.

I don't think I would have pegged you as a baseball person. Interesting.

Yes well, if I ever partake of anything from that establishment I'll expect you to taste it first so that if the stoners have messed up the recipe by deciding it would be 'awesome, dude' to substitute eggs for tomatoes or something like that, you can be the casualty instead of me.

I am layered. But not like an onion.

So you're saying you don't want to get Baked after dinner tomorrow night?

Only if Mark does the baking.

(but of course, doing drugs is wrong and a teacher at Xavier's would never do that.)

I think you are, how you say? Beating the dead donkey? I am taking back what I was saying already.

Please accept my apologies, Miss Petrovic. I was not implying that you should take back what you said. I agree with you about what you said, and I believe it was important to say it. This is why I want to make the fact that I am joking very clear. I enjoy my job here, and I do not want to jeopardize it by saying something that gets misconstrued on the journals. Your concerns were a warning to me, and it was one that I needed, so please do not assume that I am beating anything, and don't feel like you should take back what you said.

I will probably be awake. I am not sure if Doug will be, he should sleep when I cannot but sometimes he does not.

Consider yourself recruited, then. And Doug, if he's awake.

That would be excellent...although you'll probably give me a run for my money in Name That Illegal Substance.
