15 May

Being depressed at least has one benefit for my family.

It makes me want to bake. Not just cook, but bake yummy bad things. Last week I made vanilla and chocolate cupcakes from scratch. (Totally worth it-SOOOO much better than from a box) Today, since I couldn’t work because the brain surgeons at work didn’t load the correct network profile, I made Chocolate Date Cake.

Can you say yum? Or fat ass?in

I have to do something. I’ve always done this, even as a teen. The only difference is that now I can actually cook and bake.

I figure next up will be my chocolate peanut butter cups. You have NO idea how good those are.

Again guys, thank you for the kind words and support. It does help, even if I lose my voice when I try to tell you.

Thanks for hanging in with me.

Especially Mogo. Who I will now torment with some sappy Cure action. (which I incidentally listened to a lot when I first fell in love with him. This song specifically. But what chick doesn’t love this song?)

    i haven’t seen that video in what feels like twenty years…and probably is. love it. brings me back to a very skanky dark room in Sackville, where i went to college, and the boy who always played it all night long.

    thanks for that.

    beware of touting your baking. i’m not so far away i couldn’t come and eat some.

    glad you know we’re hanging in there with you, best we can. you’re still out in front, on your own, and i’m sorry for that. but glad you heard.

    Even when I can’t think of anything to say except hello, I’m here every time I see a new post. I will continue to be.

    Enjoy the baking.

    you realize that just because you post the Cure doesn’t mean I’m going to play it back, right? stupid goths 😉

    besides, I’m too busy listening to these “phonetic music” weirdos.

    I get it though. thanks 🙂

    A) I’m a big Cure fan, but Pictures Of You might be my favorite, or Just Like Heaven or Friday or Close To Me or In Between or Boys Don’t Cry or… ok, so I dig ’em all.

    B) Did you check out the recipe I posted on GNMP? It’s not cupcakes, but it would go good as an appetizer to a main course of cupcakes. 🙂

    Surely between a sugar coma and The Cure, things are looking up, hee.

    Ask Mogo. He’s the one currently eating 1/4 of the cake. 🙂

    Things were looking up until Velcro the cat had to go to the vet for a blockage in his urethra…poor baby

    I used to hate The Cure at about 13. Geeky gay music. I wanted to hear Zeppelin and Cream. Now I love The Cure and other geeky gay music. Zeppelin still rocks. I could die without hearing “White Room” again, though.

    Glad you’re thinking cake instead of knives, Thor. I do worry about ya plenty. I wanna smell that cake baking from Indiana!

  8. Mogo May 15, 2007 at 10:23 pm #

    just for the record I like a lot of geeky gay music. all that old art-faggy new wave and no wave shit from new york and whatnot. the Cure are just way too pedestrian 😛

    (please note the sarcasm in me pointing out my own music snobbery before Thor has a chance to)

  9. Mogo May 15, 2007 at 10:24 pm #

    ps – you’d better hide that cake if you want any more of it sweetie 😀

    pps – I’m really glad Velcro didn’t die
