Yep, the gym was an idea

And it was a good idea, but it's a good thing that I'm taking the morning off. Lots of little things hurt. I did discover that the gym is open Thanksgiving morning, so I think that's when I'll go next.

*yawn* Who invented this 'morning' stuff, anyway?

Re: Hrm...
Depends. Does he bake well? If so, no, don't stop him...I'm going to be overweight no matter what happens this week. If he does not bake well (do his pound cakes resemble Dwarven weaponry?) then yes, I strenuously object to his threatening me with dessert. 8^)

I actually don't know that we can bring it into the house, tho, if the cake isn't kosher... 8^(

Re: Hrm...
Depending on the kashrut standards of whoever's house you're talking about, though, this could be as simple as kashering the oven (easy) and using a disposable foil pan for the cake. You could talk him through that easily. (That is, assuming the person doing the baking is agreeable.)

Just meddling where I probably shouldn't. :-)

Re: Hrm...
You aren't meddling at all, and your comments are well received. I replied to Lori though and the issue's a bit more complicated than all that since it's a dairy recipe and we'll be eating meat... But I really wouldn't have thought of your solution, so thanks! :)
By the way, we wouldn't have public live journals if we didn't expect people to randomly poke their heads in and comment! :)

Re: Hrm...
Dairy would kind of torpedo that. Ah well.

I wasn't sure how you'd feel about mixing bowls and spoons; as I understand it, if they're not plastic, then in the absence of heat or strong agents such as onions, the "treifons" [1] wouldn't be transferred to the ingredients by the bowl/spoon. (I was presuming kosher-by-default ingredients; flour doesn't require a hechsher, for instance. Forgot about the egg issue, and it didn't occur to me that baking powder could be a problem.)

[1] The other three kinds of elements are neurons, meatons, and milkons, according to my friend Yaakov. :-)

Re: Hrm...
Trey's poundcakes are incredible - they even involve a secret family recipe. Don't know about the kosher scene though...I'll email Karen about it to make sure I don't screw-up by bringing it.

Re: Hrm...
I'd be uncomfortable about you using your mixer and utensils and all that, and since you might not be using kosher ingredients (most notably, the baking powder), I'd prefer that you not bring it. Also, I have the recipe, or at least I did, though I might have left it in Richmond, and it's a dairy recipe. We will be eating meat that night, so it's actually not something Seth or I could eat that night.
Like I said in my email, if you really are set on bringing something, and bringing something is absolutely unecessary (we really just want to see YOU), flowers would be LOVELY!!

Genesis
*yawn* Who invented this 'morning' stuff, anyway?
Genesis 1:3-5 -->
"G-d said, 'Let there be light'; and there was light. G-d saw that the light was good, and G-d separated the light from the darkness. G-d called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, a first day."

And that, my dear, I believe answers your question as to who created this 'morning' stuff anyway.

Chin up, you'll get through this. Eventually, mornings end, and it becomes evening again, and it is a new day.
