Cookie XXXChange 2014: MATCHES SENT

PeenPeen tw1tch0rzoccasionallyRegistered User regular
edited December 2014 in Singularity Engine++
If we all fail to share, we are enow
To do our forum loss; and if to share,
The fewer folk, the greater share of honour.
God's will! I pray thee, wish maybe one dude more.
By Jove, I am not covetous for fudge,
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cake;
It yearns me not if kids my cookies eat;
Such selfish things dwell not in my desires:
But if it be a sin to covet shortbread,
I am the most offending soul alive.
No, faith, my coz, wish not a box from Neville:
God's peace! I would definitely hide so great an honour
As my wife more, methinks, would hide from me
All the best treats I have. O, perhaps wish one more!
Rather proclaim it, good forumers, through our host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his oven is shut off
And store-bought cardboard put into his mouth:
We would not feast in that man's company
That fears his baking skills to share with us.
This time is called the cookie XXXchange:
He that outlives this time, and comes fat home,
Will stand a tip-toe when the time is named,
And rouse him at the name of cookies.
He that shall live this time, and see diabetes,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say 'To-morrow is the XXXchange:'
Then will he strip his shirt and show his rolls.
And say 'These pounds I had on the cookie XXXchange.'
Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that year: then shall our names.
Familiar in his mouth as household words
Neville the baker, plut and Peen,
Psyckoma and #pipe, pixiecow and MadEddy,
Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And cookie XXXchanges shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that shares his sweets with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in cyberspace now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That baked with us upon SE++’s cookie XXXchange.


What's this?

It's a cookie and treats exchange. You send cookies, candies, jams, breads, and whatever else you think is festive to another forumer.

Can anybody join?

Anybody can and should.

What if I don't live in the USA?

Try to sign up anyway! If enough people from a specific country want to sign up I'll set up a minature exchange but I need at least 4. Canada achieved this last year, UK and EU and parts unknown failed.

Will someone ship me goodies filled with drugs/razor blades?

Maybe! That's part of the fun!

All of that sounds great! How do I sign up?

Send an e-mail to: [email protected]

The e-mail's subject will be YOUR FORUM HANDLE

The body will be:
Your real name
Your real address
your absent times i.e. I won't be home Dec 20-26
allergies i.e. peanuts, gluten, feminism
favorite children's author (this is not germane to the exchange, I just think it's interesting)

Every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate your allergies but relatively little attention will be paid to your likes and dislikes. If they are especially hilarious I will pass them along to your match and they can do with them what they will.

Sign Ups will go until Saturday, November 29 and I will send out the matches shortly thereafter.

The Deadline For Delivery Is Monday, January 19th.

If you miss the deadline you will be dead. To me.

    I feel like you can only really bake with pumpkin until Thanksgiving, in the US anyway. I don't know why that is but it definitely seems like there's a window, which is a shame because pumpkin desserts are the prime vehicles for cream cheese frosting and there isn't much in the world I love more than cream cheese frosting.

    Here's a recipe for a pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting, which I want desperately.

    Not True! If you can get sufficient people from Oceania to participate you too could enjoy delicious baked dingos! Or whatever you people eat.

    I like that I can send the same loadout of treats each year, but get different delicious things back.

    Also, nobody's tired of my standbys yet, probably!

    If I say I'm allergic to razor blades am I more or less likely to get razor blades in the baked goods?

    I wonder if any other UK people want do this.

  • .. Registered User, ClubPA regular
    I will grind razor blades to a fine powder, then glue the razor dust to more razors and bake them into blondies specifically for you. I'm undecided on whether blondies mean the dessert, yet.

    So.. this is happening again, is it?

    Gimme stuff. Please. And I don't just mean my Secret Satan.

    This looks absolutely delicious, but unfortunately I'm guessing it would just be impossible to ship properly, even if Canada post doesn't screw up.

    So maybe if anyone else lives near who they're giving treats to, they could consider this.

    @Peen are you going to throw a list in the OP so everyone can see at a glance who's signed up? I mostly ask so I can easily see if I did it right.

    And it seems like all is dying, and would leave the world to mourn

    Wouldn't this be doable EU-wide, or are there crazy regulations between countries?

  • ShenShen Registered User regular
    I'm game if we can get a UK crew together. Baked some shortbread as a goodbye when I left my job last month and I'm fairly sure no one got food poisoning!

    Will have to be tentative for now though, as I may be in Nigeria over the hols.

    Should be fine, I think?

  • PeenPeen tw1tch0rz occasionallyRegistered User regular
    I've no idea how shipping works in the EU, that's why I segregated the UK and the EU in my OP. If you're all telling me it'll work then great, have at it!

  • FlarneFlarne Registered User regular
    The UK is part of the EU, they don't get special rules just for being on an island. As far as I can tell from UK and Swedish import regulations it should be fine as long as nobody bakes with drugs or extinct animal pieces (looking at you @Brovid Hasselsmof).

    I'll sign up and see how it goes. People from other EU countries who want to join should probably check their local import regulations. Worst case scenario some customs officers get to enjoy delicious baked goods and we all learn a valuable lesson.

  • PeenPeen tw1tch0rz occasionallyRegistered User regular
    I should have been more clear, I wasn't worried about import regulations but rather cost. Anybody can mail anything anyplace but I didn't want shipping to be prohibitive for anyone.

  • FlarneFlarne Registered User regular
    I see. Still doesn't make sense doing one UK and one for rest-of-EU, shipping prices are usually the same across the Union. Only cost saving is if it's in the country, so it would make more sense to just have the UK and exclude the other EU countries since the likelihood of any of us getting 4 people together is very low.

  • FlarneFlarne Registered User regular
    Which I guess is kind of exactly the thing that was being done. I'm tired.
