You love me don't you?

Time to vote. Come on you can do this one little favor for me. If I get famous I will make you any dinner you want (including lobster if you have to have it). I will even do the dishes and not complain while you sip cognac or coffee or whatever you want. I will even let you listen to YOUR iPod and I won't subject you to mine unless you like opera and Pink Floyd and lots of Joni Mitchell.

Oh yeah and here is a recipe because I love you. I know everyone loves cookies.
