Ah sweet mystery of life, at last I've drowned you.  
Life is too short. We should seize the day, get out of the house, get in the car, drive to Canada. We should roll in the snow, run with the wolves, breathe in the crisp air and reach for a deeper understanding of our place in the universe.

With this in mind, I just spent the last two hours experimenting with customized colors on my new LJ layout and then scrubbed them all and reverted to the defaults.

Also, one of my favorite words is "asshat" and I met two of them today, so yay!

And now I ponder some eternal questions.

ROFL! Ah, Brunching Shuttlecocks, how I completely forgot about the existence of thee.

Or something.

I spent ALL DAY baking. From like 10:30 am until 6 pm. I made 100 truffles and 2 dozen banana cupcakes (still sans frosting at this point) and 4 chocolate cakes (which will be put together into one big two-layer sheet cake tomorrow) and a double batch of chocolate mousse (to go between the layers of cake) and 3 dozen mini cheesecakes and a batch of Raspberry Almond Meringue Meringe OMG THEY ALL LOOK WRONG!!1! bars. And tomorrow there will be cake-building and frosting and *brain melts and explodes*

The sheer magnetic power of FOOD is drawing me inexorably to your door even as we speak. Please have some kind of funnel ready. And also a nice clean section of floor that I can lie down on.

*Prepares funnel and floor*

I can't believe I agreed to do this birthday party for my mom. Seriously. I better get some good f*cking karma from this, dude, or someone is going to be in a world of hurt. I suspect my brother, who came up with the idea in the first place, damn him.

*Thinks about eating half the truffles after the boy goes to bed*
Anna S.: cupcakeseliade on December 4th, 2005 01:12 am (UTC)
You should have truffles, mousse, and cheesecake. I'd also suggest cake, but I suppose they'd notice a piece missing. Though it sounds like it could be missing a layer, hmm.
WesleysGirl: chocolatewesleysgirl on December 4th, 2005 01:15 am (UTC)
I have to trim the layers flat anyway, so I have to admit that earlier I was considering doing it tonight and then smashing up the cake bits with some of the mousse. Mmmm food scraps.

In my head, Ray Vecchio has just had a nervous breakdown, and is saying this to Fraser.
Anna S.: claudia-blackeliade on December 4th, 2005 12:21 am (UTC)
And Fraser has an expression of understanding tolerance on his face, with mild alarm lurking around the edges.

"Ray, I've warned you about wolves, have I not? If I haven't, I apologize for being remiss in my duty. Despite what Diefenbaker would have you believe, wolves are not the sort of people you want to be running with, if you value your sanity."

But he'll go anyway, just so he can expressly not tell Ray he told him so.

Also, the beings of Solaris III have created a society much like our own in many ways, and yet have voted Republican in every election for over four hundred years, which puts any claims of actual intelligence in doubt.

If this made me chuckle out loud in an empty room while eating gummy astronauts and listening to Dean Martin, does that make me a sophisticate amused by political humor, or just really, really weird?
Anna S.: cupcakeseliade on December 4th, 2005 12:29 am (UTC)
An eternal question. *nods seriously* Philosophically equal to "Do gnomes really exist?" and "Where do socks go?" I have no answers for you, my child. Only cupcakes.

Well, then: answers schmanswers. Gimme cupcakes!

Do I get a complementary Mountie with that Canadian adventure?
Anna S.: atlantis-blue-skyeliade on December 4th, 2005 12:28 am (UTC)
From the brochure:

"One of our guide wolves will escort you to the door of your own mountain cabin hideaway, where world-class trained Mounties will be waiting to meet you. Chosen from among Canada's finest, these strapping young men will discreetly and politely--and always with a smile!--offer you services from a broad menu of selections."
Pet: Due South duetapetslife on December 4th, 2005 12:45 am (UTC)
Throw in a Kowalski and I will be there YESTERDAY. Though, come to think of it, that would probably distract my complementary Mountie to the point of uselessness...
Anna S.: harry-pottereliade on December 4th, 2005 12:48 am (UTC)
Well, viewing the Mounties as they're distracted by other, highly trained attendants is offered on our broad menu of services.

Hallelujah, the Promised Land has come!

This must be the AU Canada I've been hearing so much about.

LadyStarlightladystarlightsj on December 4th, 2005 01:08 am (UTC)
Hah. As a Canadian, I'd just like to point out that right now it is -25 outside. Not Farenheit, the other one that I can't spell.

In short, there will be no rolling, running or breathing outside here. (glares)

(unless you really have to, in which case I wish you well and will hold a blanket for you. Yis.)
Anna S.: polarbeareliade on December 4th, 2005 01:14 am (UTC)
Can I roll in the snow if I wear a large plastic bubble?

And, if I don't run with the wolves, can I run with the moose?
LadyStarlightladystarlightsj on December 4th, 2005 01:27 am (UTC)
Hmm. The bubble thing might work, if only for the entertainment value as it frosts up around you, leading to random rolling into things. ;)

And if you can find a moose, you can certainly run with it.
Poshykittyposhcat on December 4th, 2005 02:37 am (UTC)
Just bought my Thinsulate gloves today!! ::beams::
LadyStarlightladystarlightsj on December 5th, 2005 02:23 pm (UTC)
Do those really work? Because I'd be willing to try and track a pair down if they would actually keep my fingers warm.
Poshykittyposhcat on December 9th, 2005 08:59 pm (UTC)
They really do! It's an obvious difference from wool gloves or whatever, and they're still stylishly thin rather than those toasty-warm huge puffy man-mitts. Hee. Zellers has a nice selection, if you have one around. :0D
LadyStarlightladystarlightsj on December 10th, 2005 04:56 pm (UTC)
Thanks! The next time we go into "the big city", I'll see if I can find some.
Jane Bluestockingj_bluestocking on December 4th, 2005 02:10 am (UTC)
You need not drive to Canada, though driving to Yosemite is in the works. Much food will be involved, I gather. E-mail to follow.
Anna S.: cat-adorableeliade on December 4th, 2005 02:24 am (UTC)
Yay! :D *kisses*

Oh dear, I've just exploded in laughter at work. I had to stop after this bit:
