I am the worst

I feel like I did when I used to try and keep a diary. I’d write an entry and end with something like “I am very bad at keeping a diary.” Then the next entry, 5 months later, “I told you I was bad at this!!!”

So anyway, 2 years later. I told you I was bad at this!!!

my first early attempts at cake decoration

I have been taking a cake decorating class at a local college for two weeks now, and have begun my slow, occasionally pathetic climb toward becoming a master cake decorator.

here are my first early attempts at roses:

I don’t know if you can really see how terrifying my hands looked here, but they were SO PINK.

I kept forgetting what had happened to my hands, and I’d look down every once and a while and have a momentary panic attack about the vivid hue of my finger flesh.

our cake decorating professor made us do rabbits for our first cake, being a few days before easter and all. I had no desire to do so, but heeded her demands.

it looked ok. please forgive me for the yellowness of my bunny–I was forced to render him thusly.

I am enjoying this. I am creeped out by the vast amount of crisco (excuse me, vegetable shortening) that goes into my frosting, so if anyone knows a recipe for a nice, stiff frosting, good for making flowers etc., that does NOT have crisco in it, I would really appreciate the suggestion.

majestic, isn’t it?

presidents’ day!!!!!!!!

is the best holiday because everyone always puts the apostrophe in the wrong place and through shaming these people, I can boost my self-esteem for the entire day.

this image above is doubly ridiculous because the creator has not only misplaced the apostrophe, but he or she has replaced the presidential faces on mount rushmore with the actors from the twilight movies. I am pretty sure none of these people were ever president. except maybe in tweensylvania.

I like tapas and all

and I understand they are for sharing, but really, this was ridiculous.

five full-grown young ladies shouldn’t have to split three spears of zucchini, one slice of red onion, and three sweet potato medallions. I mean, this is just madness. the waitress could have said “you should order two of those,” or maybe she was a sadistic waitress–one who enjoyed watching us cut one slice of onion into five pieces. she also brought it out first, by itself, probably thinking “ha ha, this will be hil-ar-i-ous!” as our faces dropped and felt that $7 rapidly leaving our pockets.

this is a warning to you, friends. if you go to the mission bar in pittsfield and feel like having some grilled vegetables, I hope you order something else. unless you’re all like “oh boy, I could really go for a slice of grilled onion right now. but just one slice–two would be just too much.”

a thought

it’s weird to see someone you went to elementary school with on a reality television show.
