Turkey aftermath

November 30th, 2008

To anyone who celebrated Thanksgiving, I hope you had a good one! I am totally stuffed from celebrating it twice – the day before with my family, and the day of with my boyfriend’s family. One holiday over, another to prepare for. I actually started my Christmas shopping a few days ago and have already spent $400. I wish I could say that was it, but I still have a few more things to buy ^^;; Part of that was for Child’s Play, which I now donate to each year. Check it out if you haven’t already!

And now for a meme! Tagged by Joyce =O

This cake is not a lie

November 22nd, 2008

I spoil my boyfriend by making gaming-related cakes for his birthday. Though the past 2 have been kind of like jokes since I keep choosing pink, round, cute things. Oh, you know, like Jigglypuff and Kirby.

This year, I decided to actually make something from a game that he loves. I present to you…

………………

…the weighted COMPANION CUBE. (What is this, you ask?)

Companion Cube Cake

I made a 2 layer cake, then trimmed the sides to get it more cube-like. It’s covered and decorated with fondant.

Oh faithful Companion Cube, I’m sorry, but we had to kill you again. You were just too tasty.

(And now I have the Portal song stuck in my head!)

Down the to-do list

TO DO: Revamp Ethereal Visions… DONE!

I wasn’t happy with the web directory script I was using before, and what better way to get exactly what I want than to… write it myself! So, I sat down this weekend and wrote a new script that categorizes differently along with an admin panel to go with it. Another revamp done! Much more to go…

TO DO: Get a haircut and re-color my hair… DONE!

A while ago, I grew out my layers and trimmed them all off. Then, I kept growing out my hair for no reason. It was getting to be too much for me. I walked into the salon with my hair halfway down my back, and left with it to my shoulders and layered throughout. I also got it colored to a reddish tint. It feels soooooo much lighter now!

Haircut

Somewhat productive weekend = YAY.
