Reasons Why It's Probably Good I'm Planning On Library Science
Because y'all, I'm a researching fool.
No, seriously. I started reading this great blog and realized that the writer alluded to the spot of Great Cattle Ranching Country wherein she and her family lived, but never quiiiiiite told us, you know, the damn state. This bothered me. A lot. I found myself scrutinizing the photos she had posted, trying to glean some evidence. I saw on her auxiliary cooking blog that she used "Shawnee Best" cornmeal, which made me think, aha! Oklahoma, or perhaps Kansas? I finally got confirmation when she discussed taking her kids on a day trip to the museum she had loved as a girl. An earlier post had pointed out that she grew up in Oklahoma. Ok. Mystery solved.
I cannot for the life of me tell you why I HAD to know this fact. I can tell you that I was inordinately pleased with my powers of recall and analysis upon seeing her chosen brand of cornmeal. I hope someone, some day, will pay me for this type of OCD.

Good, I'm very glad that you found out where exactly she was from. Now get cracking on making those cookies with candy in them!
