Anthropomorphizing, or whatever...


Tonight is our building's annual holiday party. Every year, we buy a big tree, and decorate it together. Everybody brings nibbles, and we all hang out in the lobby and catch up on the gossip.

Because I'm sick (and a total slacker), Robb baked the apple pie for the party.

As he was taking it out of the oven, he burst into laughter.

"This pie," he laughed, "looks like a Mean Cat."

He's right. It does look like a mean cat, but it is still the most beautiful, yummy looking apple pie I've ever seen.

Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett would be proud, don't you think?


The worst pies in London...
And no wonder with the price of meat
What it is
When you get it
Thought I'd live to see the day
Men'd think it was a treat
Findin' poor
Wot are dyin' in the street!
Mrs. Mooney has a pie shop!
Does a business but I notice something weird.
Lately all her neighbors' cats have disappeared!
Have to hand it to her --
Wot I calls
Poppin' pussies into pies!
Wouldn't do in my shop!
Just the thought of it's enough to make you sick!
And I'm tellin' you, them pussycats is quick!

Beautiful Pie, Robb! Lovely crust -- and I bet it tasted even better!

You're both amazing.

that's one handsome pie Robb! Lucky Lisa. Lisa - get better soon!
Robb, what is your secret for the crust? Did you brush it with egg white and sprinkle with sugar. It's mighty fine looking indeed.

In an alternate world, I can see the pie coughing up bits of apple-flavored hairball! Yum!

She- Exactly right. Just egg white and sugar over a butter crust. This was a recipe in the Cooks Illust. Holiday Baking issue. 5 pounds of apples!

Thanks for the pie tip Robb.
It truly was beautiful. Hope you had a good visit with your family. Have a great Holiday Season and make that gal of yours eat plenty of pie and get some rest.
merry christmas
