Don’t be fooled, I made up that word. But that doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t happen. (Unlike fetch.)
So last night as I was helping Mac with his math homework (what is it with kids refusing to write out their work?), we were talking about Barney (the kid is obsessed with HIMYM) and he decided to start writing a blog. At the age of thirteen he does not have much (well, he has none) experience in such escapades as his role model writes about. So I showed him my blog to give him inspiration. Apparently I’m boring. It’s hardly worth following my blog. So I decided to change that. And by change that, I mean that I decided I would blog today. And add pictures!
Last Sunday afternoon, Susan and I went to a cupcake decorating class. We bought the Living Social deal a few months ago and were finally able to coordinate schedules. Tis the life of two busy grad students! (Ah, feels good to say that.) So we went, we cupcaked, we sprinkled, we ate a lot of frosting.
Please ignore my crazy-glasses face. For some reason I am even more unphotogenic when wearing my spectacles. This had made me seriously consider taking a modeling class here in LA (I’m sure they occur as frequently as public urination in this city) in order to get over this hump. But then I realized that my ego and my brain waves probably couldn’t handle it very well. Perhaps an afternoon with YouTube will be the solution…
So that was how I spent my rainy Sunday afternoon. (Can we all just take a moment and sigh at the greatness that is a rainy weekend day? If only it was acceptable to not wear pants and be wrapped in a blanket out in public.) This weekend I have more sweets on the docket…attempting to bake some holiday treats for all the Cali-people in my life before (mini-dance) I leave next weekend for the Midwest. Party!
