There's stuff that isn't running?

What do you do with all that extra time once your 20 hour a week part time job training gets de-railed?

Wellllll ....

I started cooking again. A lot. And by cooking I mean baking. Pink lemonade cupcakes. Car bomb cupcakes. Kahlua cupcakes. Coconut cupcakes. Sugar free brownies. Sugar free banana bread. Sugar free pumpkin bread. Grapefruit shortbread. Orange apricot scones. Cranberry orange scones. Lemon blueberry scones.

Sorry I don't have any pictures of these, but let me just say if you want to make pink buttercream frosting that it can't be done with a primary color kit. The result is a bluish flesh color. And if your star tip isn't sharp enough, it looks like you piped brains onto your cupcakes. Which would be awesome if you had these cupcake holders: https://www.thinkgeek.com/homeoffice/kitchen/e558/
but is pretty awkward at a party in NE with uptight people.

which I think I might have volunteered to make for my anime artist friend D who drew this version of me:

For the record, me as an angel I think is meant to be ironic.

I also regained my creative spirit. No, I won't be drawing my friends as amine characters. I dragged my ridiculously tolerant BF, we'll call him Polar Bear, to this:

Let's just say my frustration over not being whole showed up in my painting. PB hung it on his wall. This is reason #547 why he's awesome. He was okay with going to a booze and painting event I think because he was worried when I said I had a surprise, that I was going to make him go skydiving with me.

I also have been getting back into fashion blogs. I love flipping through the collections, and being snarky. I pretty much live in gym clothes, suits, and pajamas. And the occasional Patagonia dress. So this is purely fantasy, unless fleece polka dot pajamas become haute couture.

And on the active front:


I LOVE being on the water. I love it so much I have no idea how I made it through the winter. We went kayaking twice this weekend and it was heaven.

I'm also trying to get back into rowing. Which is also awesome. Even at 5:15 AM.

There's just something about the way the morning light illuminates the smog and the sewage.

And if you write a blog I've actually read it and been commenting with annoying frequency. Sorry about that.
