I have not a whit of knitting news to share. I haven't done anything, Orca-Mitten or BCP-wise. All I've been doing is cleaning and working. Perhaps tomorrow I will have something more interesting to share.

In the meantime, please feel free to chime in on the following debate raging here at Chez MM:

Matthew and I were watching an Oreos commercial where a kid and her grandmother have a race eating Oreos. They both remove the top cookie layer, then furiously lick out the icing, replace the cookie layer and then dunk the resulting icing-less cookie in milk. I said, "Why are they doing that?" And Matthew said, "Well, that's how you eat an Oreo." And I said, "Say what?? You remove the top cookie layer (to achieve the proper icing-to-cookie ratio) eat the resulting icing-topped cookie, and then eat the top cookie layer last."

WELL, you'd think I had sprouted two pectoral flippers the way he looked at me!! Am I crazy? This is how I've always eaten Oreos. Can it be wrong? And let me tell you, if it's wrong, I don't wanna be right!! How do other people eat Oreos?

Um, I think licking the icing off is too time consuming (and who wants to waste time when you're eating oreos!) I take off the top wafer, scrape off the icing with my teeth and then enjoy both wafers. Although I must confess I tend to avoid Oreos generally because I don't like how they make my teeth black from the crumbs. So there.

Well, Blacktooth, I don't like the idea of "scraping" off the icing with my teeth and frankly, sistah, I'm surprised that YOU would choose this method. But I'm glad you agree with me about the "licking" part - HA HA HA!

Dad, your comment was unclear - do you remove the top cookie layer and then bite into the remaining cookie? Since you say I was brought up right, I assume you agree, but I must have total clarity.

I suppose I will suffer slings and arrows for this, but I find both the wafer and the icing so delicious that I eat them just like they are - sandwich cookies.

Cugina, you eat them like a SANDWICH COOKIE??? An interesting approach, I'll admit, but still clearly WRONG.

That's how I eat them except I always eye the second no-icing cookie with distaste and consider hiding it under a napkin or a child. We used to (before they invented the double stuff oreos) take two, remove the lids, mush them together and then eat them like a sandwich cookie.

Trader Joes makes the most amazing, out of this world ginger oreos. Trust me. They are beyond good.

Divine One,
I eat Oreos like you do!
And if any of you are looking for a good, healthy substitute for Oreos, the Paul Newman cookie that is like the Oreo is yummy.
As a matter of fact, it's very yummy.

As a newbie, I thought this would be a good baptism into the WORLD OF BLOG! BTW Diana, I love the mittens the talk of them CONSTANTLY!!! Just reading your blog makes me want to SPIN! (and not in the exercise sense)

THE WAY TO EAT OREOS!!! (notice the S - since you can't eat just ONE, ever.) You take the ENTIRE sleeve, or row, upstairs away from all others with a HUGE glass of milk. You dip the ENTIRE cookie into the milk and then shove the WHOLE cookie into your mouth. Repeat. Repeat. get the idea. When you are done with the sleeve, you drink the milk right down to the crumbs at the bottom of the glass. Then you lie down on your bed and moan (due to the stomach ache).

I have done the "homemade double stuff" process also.

I have to agree with blacktooth on the scraping method.
(and even if I didn't totally agree, I would say I agree, since we are bestest friends!)

Now, off to bed with my secret bowl of ice cream. I've learned that microwave popcorn can wake children out of the deepest of sleeps....and then must be shared. SOMEONE introduced me to Karamel Sutra - sigh. I can't even open that case at the supermarket.
