Summit Up

Special to the Daily

Good morning, and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column continuing to perpetuate one of the many internet myths making their way around cyberspace.See, we’ve periodically been running a number of “New Rules” lately – terribly clever quips about life, which we’ve been attributing to legendary comedian George Carlin.Well, an intrepid Summit Up reader (are there any other kind?) wrote in to gently slap us on the wrist, and point out that the “New Rules” come from left-wing bombthrower (and occasionally hilarious) comedian Bill Maher.

Oooops!In the corrective spirit, we offer one final “rule” – as created by Maher.”New Rule: And this one is long overdue – No more bathroom attendants. After I zip up, some guy is offering me a towel and a mint like I just had sex with George Michael. I can’t even tell if he’s supposed to be there, or just some freak with a fetish. I don’t want to be on your web cam, dude. I just want to wash my hands.”***

Brownies were the topic in Tuesday’s space, and we’ve had a request to share the recipe for the peanut butter frosting that so enticed that column’s creator. We love to spread the joy frosted brownies provide to us, so we happily share this simple frosting recipe: 1 cup vanilla frosting, 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter, and a splash of milk – could sweet bliss be any easier to make? (Certain aficionados like to add finely crushed dried banana chips to add texture and a subtle flavor.)***Finally, we have an Earthbound Welcome!!! to report:

“Marshall and Becki Lennox, with the help of Grandma Jo & Nana Gloria, would like to announce the newest addition to the Lennox family. Magdalena Mary, a.k.a. Maggie, arrived on Dec. 15, 2006.”The adorable, aforementioned Maggie is pictured (quite cutely) somewhere on this page, in case you couldn’t figure that out yourself!***We out, propagating an internet rumor about the nutritional value of our brownies.
