So, Playing "Your Mom" jokes on older people: not a good idea.

So I have a "cubie" which is a person that sits in the same cube as me at work. She's nice but she's always talking and loud and asking questions. And normally her questions are silly and kind of get annoying and so today she asked,

"Who sent me this email?"

Without turning around I just said,

"Your mom."

I thought maybe she'd get the hint that I don't know and that I'm involved doing my own important work. (Ok, so I was just playing solitaire. So what?) Instead she says,

" I wish it was from my mom. She died last year. I would give anything to talk to her again."

Then she got really quiet and stopped talking for awhile. So I guess I got the result I was looking for, (a quiet cubie) but I'm now officially the worst person in the history of the world. So I figure its a fair trade-off.

So this is my First Fondant Cake

So it was my sis Kayla's birthday last Saturday so I decided to try to make a birthday cake out of fondant. Not as easy as it looks. I started out with white fondant and decided to color it for many reasons, but mostly because apparently fondant tastes disgusting. So I added chocolate to the white fondant and voilah! brown fondant. I don't know why it suprised me that it changed color, but it did. Stop judging me.

So if I'm ever in a bad mood I just have to look at this . . . .

So this is the sign that is on the property of my work Amex. The first time I saw it I got this hilarious mental image of a group of middle aged men walking out of the building on their lunch break carrying shovels over their shoulders and whistling. They reach the sign and just stare blankly at it and then they look at each other,

"Fiber optic what?"

"Did someone see us digging last time?"

"What are we going to do during our lunch break now?"

"Aw, man. This is the only hobby I had!"

Then they turn around and walk back into the building. Cracks me up every time.

So I can't make macaroni and cheese, but I can make cakes?

I'm in a cake decorating class with Katy and this is the only one I made that was presentable. Sad day.
