And apparently, I want to post 3 times today. Before 5:30 PM. Some might say that's excessive. Know what I say? Suck it, Trebec, it's my birthday, and I do what I want.
I guess what I wanted was to get lost in episodes of SNL Celebrity Jeopardy for umpteen minutes. If you can get past the first few minutes of jostling, it's a great bootlegged copy. Also, language is not G-rated, just so you know.
In other news, I made my birthday cake from this recipe from Foodess. And then I had a small slice, because, although I do what I want, something else that I wanted was to not spoil my dinner. A sweet friend is taking me out, since (1) Handsome is working & classing it up, and (2) I have a coupon so I'm a cheap date. That there small slice, it was lovely. I'm telling, were I to have an evening that did not involve my sweet friend taking me to dinner, I would totally eat at least 1/4 of that cake.
If she cancels on me for dinner, I'm eating this whole thing.
I won't even be mad.
And finally, although no gift can ever compare to the ridiculously awesome present that I received from my beloved this morning, I did want to show you what I made myself for my birthday. Yes, I gave myself a present. Because I do what I want. And, if I want to stop pretending to be such a tough guy for a moment, because I've been wanting one of these for about... 4-5 years, and finally decided to make one.
|A Duffle Bag.|
While no finished ones are for sale in my shop, I am taking orders :)
I finally found a use for that fabric that had previously left me befuddled. I feel a bit like a mix between Mary Poppins and a Carpetbagger, but I completely love it. I took it to the gym this morning, and it fit ALL of my stuff. Which was a lost. Precisely, it fit:
- A sweatshirt
- Awesome Socks
- Make-up Bag (you know, because a girl has got to look good on her birthday)
- Shower Bag
There wasn't a whole lot of room to spare after all of that, but really, what more does a girl need at the gym? Oh! And a really big mug of water. I'm in love. The best detail?
A little flower I made. I also learned how to cover a button, as you can see by that button thar that is indeed covered. I did that. And, of course, I used my gathering foot. I mean, what else would I do?
Happy my-birthday to you,
