Ring! Ring!

Yes this is me just phoning it in. My computer is still broke and I'm still using K's lap top. Nothing new to report and I've misplaced my card reader for my camera so I can't show you AMAZING new cakes. Damn it. 

So how 'bout a QUIZ?!?

Your Score: The Prioress

You scored 2% Cardinal, 61% Monk, 55% Lady, and 45% Knight!

You are a moral person and are also highly intellectual. You like your solitude but are also kind and helpful to those around you. Guided by a belief in the goodness of mankind you will likely be christened a saint after your life is over.

You scored high as both the Lady and the Monk. You can try again to get a more precise description of either the Monk or the lady, or you can be happy that you're an individual.

I knew you'd like that.

Letters To Anyone

Because, just because...

Dear Large Corporation;

Hi, how are you? Me? I'm good. I just want to ask WTF is your problem? No really WTF? Why are you phoning in orders for MANY MANY large cakes that you need the next morning? AND WHY are you doing this at 3 pm? Are you fucked in the head? No I'm not trying to be insulting, I'm just curious as to why your head seems to be up your ass that's all. I really LOVE your business, I just really hate having to work until 7 pm or 8 pm two nights in a row to do rush orders for you. 

So anyway, in the spirit of the holidays, I just want to ask you to pull your head out of your ass. 

Your friend the cake decorator,


Dear Computer of Mine;

Why do you hate me? WHY won't you START? I've been soooooooo good to you! I loves you sooooo much! Why do you deny me my internet addiction?!?!?!?!?!

PLEASE GET BETTER! I'll bring you virtual chicken soup!

Sadly Suffering;

Dear Other Jews In My Neighborhood;

You bought my cake! Which is GOOD, but BAD since I had actually made that cake for ME. Yes, yes I know, my bad for putting it in the display case, but I just didn't think anyone would buy my cake! So... where are you? Seriously you should come by and see me, I can't believe there are more than three of us in the city. 


Dear Cats;


Disgruntly yours,

ps stop waking me up in the middle of the night!

Moving on...

I got BUSINESS CARDS yesterday! They say Cake Decorator and 'Specializing in the Artistry of Cake Decorating'. I fucking LOVE that!  I know, I know, I'm easily amused. 

No cake photos today, maybe later.  Off to go take a shower!

Catching Up So To Speak

Snow siblings! Special request cupcakes for the assistant manager for her grandkids.
Totally cute cake!
So damn tragic that I DROPPED IT! Right as I was getting it for the customer. It just slid right out of the box and smashed on the floor. I stood there in utter shock and horror as the customer giggled. Then I didn't want to touch any cakes the rest of the day... not that I could abide by that as I'm the CAKE DECORATOR. Luckily I was the only person upset by this cake disaster.
Yes, yes I know. It's a blue version of the pink cake. It's supposed to be.

And this one is just for the display case.

What a weekend it's been. Friday night I spent with Sarge and his offspring. We had a delightful dinner (I remembered the damn cake) and played a game much more fun than dreidel - Heroclix. I have to admit I felt slightly guilty about beating an adorable 9 year old. We watched 300 which I have to say, I utterly enjoyed. Though I am confused about a couple of things... like why Spartans favored wearing the leather Speedo all the time (just curious, not complaining) and why 300 wasn't actually marketed as a gay porn movie. The last time I saw that many muscled men in leather undies it was when I accidentally opened up some of K's porn. Goodness, it was thorougly hot and very enjoyable. I ended up getting home about 4 am because I'm rather STOOPID at times. I kept looking at the cable box watching the time... or so I thought... in actually it was just showing that it was on channel 252. For some reason it never dawned on me that it had stayed 2:52 am for an awful long time.

And then Saturday happened. I woke with a sinus headache, took a handful of pills, went to work late, got there 30 minutes late, still had a headache, worked, took more pills, still felt crappy, worked some more, dropped a cake, almost cried, remade the cake, didn't want to handle anymore cake for fear of dropping it, finished work, came home and took a really long nap. THEN Saturday got better! D came home with the most adorable and useful Hanukkah gift - a HELLO KITTY TOASTER OVEN!!! Today I've used it SEVERAL times - I made cinnamon toast, cheese toast, peanut butter toast, a quesadilla and two batches of chocolate chip cookies. I don't care that it took me 20 minutes to make my breakfast, it was in a HELLO KITTY TOASTER OVEN! And THAT made me HAPPY!

Another addition to Casa de Karmically Challenged has happened. D gave us a Wii. Oh dear deity in the heavens, this thing is addictive. I totally suck at EVERYTHING, but whatever!

Okay, must go play now!
