In addition to being a cake pop failure. . .

December 22nd, 2011 · 1 Comment

I didn’t give up after my cake pop failure. I soldiered on trying to make something pretty and tasty.   I made exactly one of these after several  botched efforts. They were hard to make, the bark stuff wasn’t that tasty, the oreos broke and/or fell off the sticks, the oreos fell  into the bark stuff while I was […]

The Year of the Boots

December 20th, 2011 · 1 Comment

I am so excited! I have my own personal fashion adviser, the AbFab Susan from The Working Closet! I’ve been wanting riding boots for a long time, and I’ve finally reached a point where I can find some that fit over my fat calves.  So I asked Susan what to wear with them. I’m off […]

A Cake Pop Failure

December 16th, 2011 · 3 Comments

I am a cakepop failure. For the uninitiated, cake pops are suppose to be a little bite of heaven that I first learned about from the lovely and talented bakerella.  They are cake, mixed with icing, dipped in chocolate and stuck on a stick.  I mean what’s not to like about that? Miss Zoot said […]

I’ve not gone back to running yet.  I’m feeling better.  Not so tired.  Not so achey.  But my head is still alternating between so congested I can’t breath or draining so much I’m constantly sniffling and coughing.

It’s Happened

December 5th, 2011 · No Comments

Well it’s happened.  What I’ve been dreading.  What I’ve been afraid of.  What I’ve sprayed myself down with anti-bacterial gel to keep from happening. I am sick.

I think the people at my office are screwing with me

December 2nd, 2011 · 1 Comment

At my office we have a Keurig Coffee Maker. It makes really yummy, pipping hot, caffeine filled, cups of coffee. Except when someone orders the same brand of decaf as the regular aka caffeinated coffee. And then puts the decaf in the spot where the regular aka caffeinated coffee goes. I’ve been walking around here […]
