mmrrrmph.  
I want a little blue pill that will give me an attention span greater than a gnat's. I have two projects launching in the next 48 hours and my brain is all, "La la la, look, there's some weather outside the window--look, there's a shiny thing--look, there's some chewing gum." This is not *helpful*, brain!

My manager brought in miniature cupcakes today, from a cupcake shop. I could cry from the happy of mini cupcakes.

La la la cupcakes.

In closing, here's my umbrella anecdote: I went to buy an umbrella last night, so that I'd have one for work and one for home. I bought my umbrella, and then *lost* the old one I'd been carrying with me--like, immediately lost it, within ten minutes of making the purchase. I retraced my steps, checked everywhere. Zip. So I got home, and opened the new umbrella--and it sucks. It's all wrinkly and deformed and I'm going to bring it back. The universe is playing games. I tried to decode its cryptic messages, something about how for everything you get you must also give something up, and maybe it all balances out, unless you're stuck with a crappier umbrella, so maybe you shouldn't give up what you have. Or maybe you should hold onto *all* your umbrellas, or should unfurl and inspect them carefully before you buy them.

*blinks*

La la la cupcakes.

:sigh: Umbrellas. I have an 8 year old who believes you buy umbrellas so that he can break them. Oh, not on purpose, exactly - it's just they are so useful for banging things.

I once saw the most wonderful umbrella. You opened it, and I think it looked like Harry Potter flying against the night sky, inside. It was cool. I coveted.

La la la cupcakes.

Heeeeeeee.

And...the universe has a warped sense of humour. The universe has been watching too many old Monty Python sketches.

Oh yes. Mr Tination is a sneaky guy. I think we're related. Do you know him? C'mon, you must've heard of him? I think he's an immortal; certainly he's been mentioned in texts for quite a while, certainly beyond the life span of an ordinary man. Not that there's anything ordinary about him - so fascinating, utterly compelling, and with that fugitive from justice je ne sais quoi. Always appears at the worst possible moment, but impossible to ignore - the best and worst sort of house guest. Not ringing any bells? You must know him! Procras Tination - the thief of time.

Ohhh, congratulations AND Happy Birthday! Plus cupcakes, this is excellent all round. :D

Except for the umbrella part of course, for that I doff my hat and stare at my feet.

I'm totally with you on the cupcake adoration - yummy little sponge cakes with icing on top - so simple and pure:-) The small yet delctable cupcake is a rare breed nowadays - at least in Australia. Instead we are besieged by the hefty muffin (American style) which is sooo big and over-filling (with no icing - dullll) you feel ill after eating one (and guilty) and they simply do not measure up!

I mourn the fall of the cupcake ... and the loss of your umbrella.
