Awesome Cakeness!!

I made this cake today. The customer wanted the cake to match the napkin from the party decorations. The initial thought was to make a photo cake but luckily for the customer the printer is out of black ink so... I free handed the space shuttle on the cake. The best part was when the customer picked up the cake. The the woman shrieked "I love this cake!" Anyway, this was soooo cool, I just had to share!

L'shanah Tovah!!

Happy Rosh Hashanah to all my wonderful friends!!
I suck so much, the holidays just slip up on me. Tonight starts Rosh Hashanah – the Jewish New Year, so there will be much merriment and happiness. We celebrate this wonderful holiday from sundown tonight until nightfall on the 14th.
If I don’t get to see each and every one of you during this time (which I won’t), I just want you all to know that the friendship and love that you have given to me is what makes this day sweet and wonderful, knowing that you’ll all be there this next year to make it the best year yet!

AND now, my FAVORITE Rosh Hashanah joke!
A Catholic chauffeur was bragging to his friend how well the Jewish family who employed him treated him. "You wouldn't believe it," he said. "I get tips galore, and they always buy me lunch or dinner when I drive. My salary is great, with benefits! I get off all holidays, including the Jewish ones, like Rosh Hashanah."
"That sounds pretty good," said the friend. "But what's Rosh Hashanah?"
"Oh, that's when they blow the shofar**."
"Wow!" said the amazed friend. "Those are SOME benefits!"
(** The Shofar, a ram's horn, is the oldest wind instrument. The sounding of the Shofar is the most ancient rite in the Rosh HaShana observances.)

Now I must head to the store to get honey and some things

Calgon Take Me FAR, FAR AWAY!

Shit. First grade homework is going to fucking kill me. Or should I say, doing first grade homework with my Alien Tiny Terrorists is going to make my fucking brain EXPLODE. It’s taken 2 hours to finish this! Two fucking hours! Five sentences! All she had to do was write five sentences! Wow, I thought Super Girl was stubborn, I don’t ever remember getting a tension headache while doing homework with her.

Wow this day really has rather sucked – it started out just perfect. A short chat with Bruce Willis, most amazingly wonderful weather to walk to work in… then I got to work and went straight to the crapper from there. And the fighting with my offspring to make them do their homework, well THAT’S just made it so much BETTER – NOT!

I need a break… maybe a nice dinner with Bruce Willis or a massage from Bruce. I’ll probably just go to bed early. Blah!

Star Trek Porn

This conversation just happened:

Me: Did he just say “Arm the Astral Penis”?
Him: NO. He said “Arm the AFT TORPEDOS” you sex fiend.
Me: I know what I heard. And I liked it. ;)
Blast From The Past

I was unloading laundry from the dryer today when I found the most inexplicable article in the dryer. Inexplicable because I thought I’d gotten rid of it at least 10 years ago and also because… why the fuck was it in the dryer??? What I found was my PROM DRESS! So weird. I was talking about this dress to Bruce Willis at lunch the other week and now… here it is. Very weird.

Enjoy the photos, they make me LAUGH!

Me and my ever so GAY date. I hated that corsage - it was UGLY. Damn my nails looked FAB!

I wasn't wearing heels - he is just really SHORT. If only you could see the AWESOME came I was wearing - black with burgundy interior. I matched the beads on the dress and my hair color to it!

Assorted other prom photos - check out the fucked up back ground for out photos. They didn't have it set up right so it was about two feet off the floor and looks JACKED in all photos.

Okay the only reason I included this one is the photo in the right top corner. Yeah, that's my idiot date. He stood in a photo with a girl I knew because she didn't have a date and didn't want to stand alone. He asked if I cared and well I was too shocked to actually say YES, but whatever. If you look in the photo you'll see she's a good 6 inches taller than him. hehehehe.

And THIS is the dress. All washed and dried. Amazingly most of the beads are still attached. Anybody need a prom dress?

My offspring just got home and my oldest just said "Oh mamma! That's such a pretty dress!" Crazy child.

At Least It Isn't The Neighbor's Dog!

Me: Are you hearing voices again?

Him: Yes, yes I am. Oddly enough all the voices I hear sound like you.

Me: That's sooo cool! All my voices sound like me too!

It's always interesting at Casa De Karmically Challenged.
