From My Prompts

[personal profile] freshbakedlady has written the story "Belief Is Sight" based on my prompt, about learning to see unicorns.

"The Black Unicorns" is a clever and creepy story by [personal profile] ng_moonmoth.  It's kind of a fantasy version of alien motifs.

From someone else's prompts, [personal profile] alexseanchai wrote "From Town to Forest," about unicorns and assault survivors.

[personal profile] freshbakedlady has posted "The Longest Hunt," one of the best unicorn stories I have read.  It's on desire and surrender.


Review: Trader Joe's Lacey's Cookies

My giant package of chocolates included a carton of Trader Joe's Lacey's Cookies Milk Chocolate Macadamia Nut.  These were quite tasty.  Very sweet chocolate and good nutty flavor.  However, I wouldn't really describe them as cookies -- they're more like two very thin slabs of nut brittle glued together with the chocolate.  Never had anything like these before.  While I'm not a big fan of hard cookies, I did enjoy them.  If you like crunchy, crispy cookies and/or nut brittle then definitely give these a try.
