My Ego.......Rest in Peace?

I like cookies. You like cookies. We all like cookies. I have some *fantasmic* cookie recipes up for trade at The Great Minivan Trade-up. This is a funny little project started by Dad of Divas. He started with a camera and traded it up for something else from someone on the internet. He keeps trading the current item for a different item hoping to eventually trade all the way up to a minivan.

The last trade made was to me. It was a framed photo art picture valued at $120.00. For the picture I offered in trade some killer (and easy to make) coveted cookie recipes. The kind that look real impressive, but are waaay easy to make and even easier to eat. This is just in time for the holiday baking season, can you bring a dessert, time of year.

I even sweeten the deal by saying that I will offer to meet the wonderful person who trades something for the recipes, and buy them $50 in drinks anywhere in the Chicagoland area, the next time they are in the area. Top it off with a parting gift of an 8x10 autographed picture of yours truly(just for an extra laugh).

Now the next step is for someone who would like this fantabulous package to contact and offer him something in exchange. What can you trade you ask? Anything! Go through the attic, the garage, the storage space, find something that you would be willing to part with. A lamp, a piece of furniture, Jack Benny's eye glasses. You could offer a service, frequent flier miles, your imagination is the limit(just keep it legal people).

And in doing this, you will also be doing the good deed of saving my ego. This offer has been out there, with me flapping in the wind, for about a week now, without any solid bites. For all the nitty gritty details click here. And save me from crying in my beer. Someday, when I'm famous, you may just want that pic!
