Fortune Cookie Generator

Ok, this is a most interesting fortune cookie:

“If your cookie still in one piece, buy lotto.”


Hmm, what cookie is this referring to?  And why should I buy lotto?


So I start to think that this is likely a computer-generated garbage fortune–i.e. the artificial intelligence makes no f*ckin sense! 


Anyway, you will be fascinated to know that the modern fortune cookie with the paper fortune inside the hollow of the cookie was invented in California.


However, the Japanese put something like this in the bend of the cookie already in the 19th century. 


Using this fortune as an example, I have this gnawing feeling that the Japanese fortunes had a lot more intellectual substance to them. 


Anyway, someone tell this lame cookie fortune teller that Lotto is way out and Powerball is in and where the real winnings are. 😉

German Chocolate Cake – A Cold Stone Favorite

Coldstone German Chocolate Cake
So I took this picture at Cold Stone ice cream parlor. 



The guy is in action making German Chocolate Cake Ice Cream for us–one of their “signature creations.”



A big wad of Chocolate Ice Cream and then add the caramelized nuts, chips of coconut, and wedges of chocolate–then mix until all creamy and gooey. 



OMG, this was pretty good.



We used to get the Cookie Dough You Want Some flavor…also to die for, but I didn’t see this one on the ice cream menu anymore (although I bet you can still ask for it). 



The way they charge, they push you to get the largest size called, “Gotta Have It”which is only about 20 cents more than the “Love It” (medium) and 30 cents more than the “Like It” (small).



One of the large ones costs about $6  and can easily be shared between between 3 people. 



This ice cream is made for me on the spot and is a special treat, so don’t get addicted, please. 😉
