A semi silly post - Tim tam

I made a silly video at the request of Lynda who sent me some Tim Tam biscuits (biccies) from Australia.
What is a Tim Tam?  Chocolate heaven!   Way too much sugar, but oh so good.  I had trouble doing the video by myself, so this is take 3 and I was on a total chocolate high and I am still not focusing well.  Ha ha.
I recommend that you don't have a mouthful of anything when you watch this as I am not responsible for messed up computer screens. Okay.  Yeah, I already know I look like a total goof in this. No need to tell me that one. Luckily, I can laugh at myself, and frequently do.



In other news, (you know real quilty stuff) I got a package today with more Asian fabrics for the lantern quilt.
See----

Lynda said...

Oh Gene!! You did that like you had been doing it all your life!!!! I guess you understand now why I have had to ban Tim Tam's from my house.....1 is just never enough!! I am so glad they made it to you quickly and not melted in the heat!! It was sure it worth to see that video!!!

Gene, That is fabulous!! Tim tams are wonderful aren't they? Guess what you can now get them here!! They are produced by Pepperidge Farms and you can get them at Target, Wal-Mart and even some grocery stores. I am totally addicted to them and will have to try the Tim Tam Slam!! Thanks!

OMGosh! I'm cracking up too! Gene you are too funny! Totally loved it you could really sell those!

LOL! I didn't think anyone in the US could find TimTams in the summer months. I've been searching hard to find some to send to Kelly. Lucky you. But I can't believe you did this on a youtube video. I don't think you'll be invited to tea with the Queen, even if you have Tim Tams. But then you do have a great tip! LOL!

PS - I'm a TimTam virgin want-a-be. But Kelly (IHAN) really needs a fix!

ROFL! Oh, Gene, I LOVE it! Tim Tams should see this. They could use it for advertising. :)))
OMGosh. Too too funny!
Seriously (how after that? LOL) why not send it to them? They'd have a laugh if nothing else.
Did Lynda tell you that we can buy different varieties here? I particularly like the caramel ones, but there are also double chocolate ones for the really keen chocoholics.

Happy Quilting!

Gene you are sooo funny. I must live in a shell as I never heard of TimTams, but you sold me on finding and trying them. That material is beautiful, what are you making with it?

Des said...

oh gene! you just have the cutest little accent. Never heard of Tim Tams but maybe they've never heard of oreos. :)
