Looks delicious, you get a vote from me! I've always wanted to eat a flying spaghetti monster. By the way, I'm Matt's little brother Ian. I met you a couple of times when I was like, fifteen.

Hey Ian! Long time no see. I see your forehead glows now. Good for you! I like your painted cookies, too. Those look like fun!
Congratulations on the contest! My forehead glows with delight.
