Re: Basically it's Sunday

So I leave you with my latest moral and ethical dilemna. Our school collects the Box Tops for Education, you know certain brands of prepackaged foods have points-valued things on the label you give to the school, who in turn can redeem them for stuff. I obviously love chocolate chip cookies and cookie dough, and so do my kids, but it really isn't that much more expensive for me to buy the premade than make my own. I am a snob, I LOVE the Tollhouse and it tastes the same as homemade. But the Pillsbury is the same price and I get the box tops. I don't buy a lot of things that would have the box tops on them, we don't eat cereal or do a lot of prepackaged foods, this is one of the very few things that we would actually buy and use already. But Pillsbury is not as good. It's not bad, it's not even mediocre, but it's not as good. WWYD?

I am pissed about the longies, Cheryl but not much I can do now. I'm sure no one will notice, but they are glaring at me and decrease their resale value.

Re: Basically it's Sunday

I love the theological discussion. It's so interesting to hear everyone's perspectives. I believe in evolution, like Jen, I think all religious text are stories meant to guide us toward good ways of living and teach us lessons. I'm also quite on the fence about a higher being. I feel more of an earth-based spirituality, if that makes sense.
