A guy I work with is badly sensitive to gluten, so he can't eat regular cookies. His wife baked a batch of special ones that he can have, however, and he brought some to work on Friday and shared. They were good, so I asked for the recipe and he emailed it to me today. I'm surprised at how good they are considering how little there is to them. The cookies come out soft and chewy and are quite tasty.

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup chunky or smooth peanut butter (not low fat)
1.75 cups powdered sugar
1 egg

Mix everything thoroughly and roll into 1 inch balls. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and flatten with a fork or the bottom of a glass. Bake at 350F for 5-7 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheet so they don't fall apart.

I probably ate a dozen of my grandmothers pecan and peanutbutter cookies today.
I swear its the ONLY good thing about visiting my family.

also, I just dont' understand how that wouldn't just leave a melted peanutbutter blob on the cookie sheet.

Woah! No flour - I swear that's not the right way to spell that. But, dude; no flour. That's crazy. I'm going to try it! You've made me excited now! Thanks!

If we're going to correct everything, I might as well add that you perform a threadjack here. UBB doesn't have threads. It has topics.

Considering the meaning of the suffix -escent, I think flourescent should be a word. We could use it to describe certain goths [Big Grin]

How can something be acceptable if it's not also correct?

Perhaps, considering the nittyness of the pickyness, the proper spelling is "woe"?

CP

Not in the current usage.

"Whoa" is a command used when controlling beasts of burden (e.g., oxen, horses, mules) when wanting them to slow down or come to a complete stop. As an American English idiom, it is frequently used in conjunction with "Hold your horses" as a request to pause the conversation for consideration of some astonishing comment or observation.

On the other hand, "woe" is an adjective describing a sad state of affairs, a trial, or tribulation. It is commonly used as a lament, as in "Oh, woe is me!"

I think CP was joking somehow, though it went over my head a bit.

And "woe" is a noun. "Woeful" is the adjective. For some reason, "woefulness" is also word, though it seems redundant to me.

Eh, I don't quite agree with you... If a person is in a state of woe or says "woe is me," then woe is an adjective. However, you are correct in saying when used elsewise, it is a noun, with "woeful" becoming the adjective.

Every dictionary I can find says it's a noun.

You can be "in a state of peace" and peace is still a noun, even though "in a state of peace" works like an adjective.

In the case of "woe is me", regardless of how people use it "woe" is still a noun. Shakespeare probably just wanted to make something rhyme, or to annoy us. Besides, I think he was probably doing it for effect - saying that Ophelia had become an embodiment of woe rather than merely a person who felt woeful.

Whir whir whoa woe.

THREAD ALERT! Critical boredom threshold passed.

This thread has passed from legitimate comment through pedantry to realms so dull that no thought can breathe here.

Get out everyone while you still can! [Wink]

Oh, and max: The OED actually cites the usage of woe as an adjective, largely due to use. (not to say that it's really 'proper.')
