That’s The Sound Of The Men Working On The Dopplegang.

For the record, yesterday was a stupid day. I was piss miserable all day. I don’t really know why, but I was. Maybe it was the crazy high electric bill first thing in the morning. Maybe I was just angry at myself for procrastinating on writing my article. Maybe it is because, despite the crazy high electric bill caused mainly by my air conditioner, it is still frigging hot in my house. Whatever it was is gone and I feel relatively non-homicidal this morning. Granted, it is only 7:17am. The day ain’t over by a long shot.

Today. Today. Let’s see what I am doing today. I would put money on bamboo flooring. Also, Pancake Land has yet another dentist visit. This should be the last one for a while. I think we are postponing the extraction of her new wisdom tooth, due to financial and anxiety reasons. Four dentist visits in a month is about all she can handle.

I did manage to knuckle down and write my article for the City Wire last night. That was a relief. Now that I have that done, I can sit back and relax until I have to do it all over again this weekend.

This Saturday I am helping Teacher Sis build a wedding cake. Sounds fun, right? I know. Right now, there is about seven sheet cakes in my freezer. I am starting to get excited about it. Hopefully before the cake building extravaganza, I can get the wall and ceiling framed in for my office. If I can get the wall framed Saturday morning, then my “electrician” can come Saturday afternoon and run wire while we are building a cake. Once I get the wire run and electric boxes in place, I can insulate and start dry walling. Look out now.

Do you ever get overwhelmed? Sometimes I do. I’ll be thinking about a song or a recipe and then I’ll start thinking about all the songs in the world or all the recipes for making chicken. At some point I realize that there is no way that I will ever hear every song or make every recipe. It makes me feel very small and insignificant. It is pretty overwhelming. To know that no matter how bad you want to do something, like taste every cake ever made, you cannot do it because that number of things, that volume, is exponentially larger than you and everything you stand for. Hi. Took it a bit deep this morning.

I did a Google image search for overwhelmed, but the results were pretty lame. I did end up finding a picture of an otter though.

This is an otter. I want one. For my moat.

Well, on that note, I’m going to work. More soon. ~SC

    At this point – I will do the groom’s cake Friday night. Wedding cake transporting and building will take place after lunch on Saturday. I plan to have everything frosted and mostly decorated. We will need to stack the tiers, work with the flowers, and figure out how to transport this thing…oh and then fix any screw ups.
