I was watching "Numbers" the other night on demand (and yes, I am loving the return of cable to my life.) I enjoy catching the show now and then, in part because I'm fascinated by things I don't understand (like math) and in part because smart guys with curly hair are among my favorite things, and the character of Charlie is both.

So in the episode I was watching, one of the characters was sad because her family hadn't come to visit in a long time, and she told of how, whenever they were in town, they would go out for waffles. So Charlie had the whole gang over for dinner, and the scene around the table reminded me of many dinners with my friends - an amazing assortment of ages, interests, careers, all drawn together by one another. And Charlie enters from the kitchen with dinner - a huge platter of waffles - and announces:

"Family is the people you want to eat waffles with."

Truer words were never spoken.

Totally. WaffleFest 2008 begins July 3.

Which, by the way, is in just 60 days.

Not that I'm counting.

Oooh, the waffles you made in September 2002 were soooooo good! I remember pecan, and maple, and cinnamon, and love. I think that sounds like a great idea! I will count my pennies and check airfare so we can have a waffle do-over!
