    Cake!
    What did I do today?

    This!Collapse )

    I've volunteered to make angelus7988's birthday cake this year, for the joint party his family is throwing for him and a relative who has the same birthday. Since my cake plan was a little ambitious, I decided to try a small-scale trial run ahead of time, to work out all the kinks. Here's what we're looking at...

    Cut for those not interested in the intimate details of my baking adventures...Collapse )

    I think it turned out pretty well, but tomorrow will be the taste test, which is the most important thing. (And by "tomorrow" I mean later today, because it's 4:30am what's wrong with me why am I still awake and talking about cake of all things goodnight.)

    Current Mood: artistic

    Quest Update
    So, despite all indications that yesterday morning may have offered, last night's Quest game seems to have been an unmitigated success. And now I am tired.

    Current Mood: sore

    Random Observation
    I think I've figured out why I resent sleep so much. It's not just the huge chunk of time out of my day that it eats up; it's the fact that the transition from sleep-muddled lump to functional human being is such a long and arduous climb for me. Waking up sucks. Apparently it sucks enough that I'd rather not have gone to sleep in the first place.

    Current Mood: sleepy

    Quest Game Shenanigans
    Saturday's Quest game was an... adventure. An adventure in shit not getting done until the last minute because I was buried in work-that-pays-me-money, and staying up until 6:30am to make tiny chicken pot pies (which were, at least, well-received). It was also an adventure in my car not starting after I had already sent angelus7988 and cygna_hime off to campus in his car, and me with all the food in mine. So a member of staff had to come rescue me and all the food for game, and I sustained a minor injury during the changeover.

    More craziness ensued, and then game finally got off the ground. Everyone appeared to have a good time, and while the PCs were fewer in number and power than anticipated, characteristically unpredictable, and occasionally really dumb, they ultimately prevailed. The necromancer was defeated, the Embassy was not blown up, and the treaty with Yamamoto was signed. Huzzah!

    Naturally, when I went out a few minutes ago to check on my car, it started up like a dream. Must've been the cold. Or the insuperable perversity of the universe. One of the two.

    Current Mood: exasperated

    Meringue Mishaps and Christmas Crazies
    A belated but sincere Happy Holidays to everyone... though, I guess it's not entirely belated, as New Year's is just around the corner! Thought I'd share a couple of stories from the past few days for everyone's amusement. The first one is from a couple of days before Christmas, and the second chronicles our Christmas Day shenanigans. Enjoy!

    Weather Patterns
    I notice a trend with major storm warnings around here. Last year, when Hurricane Irene was on its way, our household did all the serious storm-preparedness things you're supposed to do -- getting batteries and non-perishable food, filling water bottles for drinking, etc.... And absolutely nothing happened to us. It was maybe a little damp. Then, at the end of last October, the freak blizzard caught us entirely off-guard, no prep, nothing -- and we lost power for five days.

    Sure enough, after we took a bunch of precautions, stockpiling water, filling the bathtub for water to flush the toilet, planning how to use up the meat in the freezer if the power went out... nada. I'm not even sure if it rained here.

    Of course, the hurricane did screw up the arrival of my laptop. The tracking page tells me that it's sitting in a building somewhere in North Haven. D'you suppose they'd mind if I just drove down there and asked them to give it to me? *sigh*

    For everyone who didn't luck out as much as I did with the hurricane, stay safe. (Of course, if you don't have power, I doubt you're reading this right now, but the sentiment holds.)

    Current Mood: irritated

    So, two things are supposed to arrive tomorrow:

    1. This ridiculous fucking hurricane/blizzard/ghastly mess of a weather system that's predicted to obliterate half the East Coast and send us back to the Bronze Age.

    2. My new laptop.

    ...

    :(

    I'm getting the impression that the Gods of Catastrophic Climate Change are, for some reason, opposed to my participation in NaNoWriMo. Last year it was the Snowtober/Octoblizzard/stupid-fucking-freak-snowstorm that knocked out our power for five days, including the beginning of NaNo. Now it's this. I am... miffed.

    Current Mood: frustrated

    And I'm not even Irish!
    After a week of stress and deadlines and veterinary visits and not nearly enough "me" time, I decided that today was going to be Cooking Project Day. In honor of the date, that meant creamy potato soup and Irish soda bread. They came out well! (Though the bottom of the soup pot is going to be an adventure to clean... I don't envy angelus7988 that job.) I can post recipes if anyone is interested; I found the soda bread recipe online, but for the soup, I sort of took two or three recipes I found online and drove them together in a high-speed collision, in order to end up with something closer to what I wanted. *shrug* It was tasty. A little went a long way, though; there's plenty of leftovers for tomorrow!

    Now, I'm almost halfway through the writing jobs I have due tonight/this morning, so I should get back to that. And at some point I really should start a cooking/baking blog. I just have to get angelus7988's digital camera plugged in and figure out how to take pictures that don't suck. And maybe learn some HTML. Hush.

    Fiat Lux!
    And there was light. And she saw that it was bloody well about time. But also awesome.

    (Translation: we now have electricity for the first time since Saturday afternoon. It's been cold and lonely, but now it's better again! We don't have to drive and drive and look for internet, like our ancestors did, and we can have silly things like hot food! It's shiny.)
