Still Shutdown ...

Government Shutdown Day 7 Activity 3: Naptime! Oh yeah ...Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ...

It looks like M and I might be getting back together.  Recently, we've had amazing times together.  And, he seems to be open to us going to counseling.  I am hoping both individual and couple.  BUT, I haven't had the inclination to look into it because.  well.  I am stressed out about the whole stupid Government Shutdown.


As for the other guy I was casually dating (remember: the hot bad kisser?), I let him down easy.

WHICH, brings me to the title of my new book idea: How to Let Him Down Easy by Not Returning His Phone Calls.

I KID!  I did return his phone calls.  well, his text messages.  And I was all "this just isn't working for me."  Because it wasn't.  I don't get it.  He was super-hot. Smart.  Good job.  Nice guy. BUT, I wasn't all that into him.  *sigh*  I should have been.  Oh, well.

I have been baking a lot.

I made Carrot Cake Cookies.

Government Shutdown Day 8 Activity 4: MOAR COOKIES (Carrot cake cookies)

And Cookie Butter Coffee Cake.

 Bam! Cookie Butter Coffee Cake!

And, although this isn't baking, a fucking amazing Peanut Soup!

Peanut Soup!

I am still taking tap dance.

And making bad pottery.

And I made more habenero hot sauce.

And I'm infusing some vodka with lemons and habeneros.

Government Shutdown Day 9 Activity 1: Lemon Habenero Infused Vodka

And, I should really work on updating my resume.  And applying for jobs.  Because who knows when (or if!) this stupid shutdown (which is keeping me from a job I really like) will end.

I should also clean my house.  And maybe do the ironing.

Or I could just watch DVDs and take naps and drink martinis.



  1. I hope the bad kisser took it well. Really, bad kissing would almost be a deal breaker for me.

    Good luck on the shutdown, I fully believe it will be resolved at the 11th hour (and 55th minute, probably), mainly because I believe the Republicans overlords (ie the rich on Wall Street and in corporations) dont want the economic havoc that would result. They'll make the Rs put a stop to it.

    And hey, if I was off work for three weeks, I probably wouldn't clean my house either. I KNOW I damn sure wouldn't be ironing. And I probably would be watching DVDs and getting drunk. So we're both on the same page there. :)


  2. Yay, you're back to work! Also, no more throwing things allowed. Or hissy fits of any stripe. Xoxo

  3. Carrot Cake Cookies!?! Cookie Butter Coffee Cake!?! Why have I never heard of these marvelous things?!?!?

  4. I hope you watched DVDs, took naps and drank martinis.
    You know, it's really cruel of you to post such yummy looking pics when all I have in the house are rice cakes.
