Been a busy girl
Th-Thump. So I did this cake for my bosses husbands birthday. He's a nurse in the cardiac ward at a nearby hospital. This thing was pretty freaking big, and grody. Lemme just tell ya, walking this thing through the halls at the hospital was a little awkward. Anyway, it was lots of fun and the shock value is pretty awesome.
Winnie the Pooh...Winnie the Pooh... Chubby little cubby all....sorry. Lemme just tell ya, that Pooh Bear was a BITCH to cover in fondant. What you see here is the second attempt. The first attempt looked like ghost of Pooh. After we got him all covered and prettiful I hand painted him, sculpted his lil honey pot, and put him on top of his hunny pots. He was a serious rush job. I was actually still decorating at the house right up until the party started.
One of my coworkers had a birthday earlier this week and grew up in Hawaii so we did a Hawaiian shirt (no it's not pajamas) and a pair of flip flops. This was a REALLY rushed job and my head was elsewhere the whole time because I was thinking about getting ready to go up to my grandma's viewing. Still turned out good though.
And that's all the pictures of recent cakes I have. Lots is going on and I'd love to sit here and tell you all about it. On second thought. No. I wouldn't. I would like to go have a nap.

Speed blogging
A little over a month in ten minutes. I can do it!!!

Moved out. Awesomeness ensued. Drama is ensuing currently but there's six girls, we're bound to want to flick each other in the eye occasionally.

Classes are good. Accounting, economics, astronomy, and business communications OH MY!! Accounting is just accounting. I like it...enough.

Economics is just frustrating, I mean really, markets work, isn't that all we need to know?

Astronomy is freaking awesome. I enjoy it. The labs are lots of fun. I know whick direction I'm pointing now because of what constellations are in the sky. I can also tell you the names of a whole bunch of stars, where to look to see the Andromeda Galaxy, the constellations that make up the winter hexagon, and lots of other stuff. Usually when I start talking about astronomy whoever I'm with just tunes out, so If you tuned out y'all can come back now.

Business communications is freakin ridiculous. Lots of "this is a comma" crap. Yes, I know how to structure a sentance (no comments from the peanut gallery please).

The house is good. I'm poor. Like REALLY poor. But I'm not starving so that's good. I need to get another little job for some extra cash or something.

In the apartment I'm the trampy one. I've kissed more people than all of them combined. Also...other stuff.... Of course I've got most of them beat in age by about 6 years so it's to be expected. The age difference is interesting to say the least, I guess that's what you get for being a non-traditional type student. The girls seem to like me ok. Apparently, I'm no Calie, but that was hardly the goal when I moved in so I don't really care.

Becky's already told you about Granny so I won't rehash. It's sad.

Made a kick ass cake for my boss's husband's birthday. He's a nurse in a cardio ward so I made him a cake shaped like a heart which I will upload later.
And DONE! Time for my astronomy test!
