Our tools group hit a major milestone this week. Take a look at the suite of developer tools for applications using the Data Distribution Service on our website. To celebrate, we met in our breakroom for BJ Pizookies (also known as pazookie). Huh? My first reaction was this was some sort of game. Nope.
  1. BJ = BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse in Cupertino. (Silicon Valley oldtimers know it as the old Peppermill in front of the Apple Headquarters on De Anza Boulevard)
  2. Pizookies are giant, barely cooked cookies, baked in a pizza dish and served in a pizza box. Pizza+cookie=pizookie, get it? You can choose from: peanut butter, oatmeal raisin, chocolate chip, and white chocolate macadamia nut. They are best served with a scoop of ice cream and taste pretty great.
So there you go, a new word in my slang dictionary: pizookies.
