u'd think i'd do something worthwhile with all the free time i now have. like, maybe exercise & get back into shape before it's unattainable, clear up d house, which still looks like a clearance sale unit, or maybe, read up on everything i always wanted to - like all those global gyaan books, learn espanol, which i have to now learn beyond shut up, yes and my name is; clear out the closets or or at least d fridge!
but, clearly i have other interests. that are by far more compelling than d above listed, house-wifely woes!
i choose to spend my day reading blogs, watching PBS *for heavens sake, who does THAT!?*, playing word games/puzzles, checking the status of my torrent downloads every FIVE minutes, writing pieces such as this *or d rest of this blog, for that matter*, mailing V every 20 mins *i don't call & nag. i simply mail* and of course, baking! cakes, cookies, bread - anything that i can get a mix for!
really, i've taken to baking like a fish takes to water. that's a silly proverb, aint it? i mean, how can a fish take to being OUT of water. won't it die??? but i'm digressing again!
i've realized i LOVE baking. and we had chocolate cake TWO times in one week. needless to say, half of the baked output is consumed prior to V reaching home! *so much for i-wanna-be-me-again* also, V aint a big fan of chocolate cake. so, we have two chocolate cakes and one pound cake or pineapple-pecan cake or some such, in ONE measly li'l week! yes, 5 days, 3 cakes. no, u can't count weekends. V cooks on weekends. and he doesn't bake.
also, adorably, there's always ONE slice left behind, which we both refuse to eat. and ultimately, not-so-adorably, i trash it. sin sin sin! wonder how i'll atone for this one! atonement for all the other sins wud need another post. or maybe, another blog? hmm... but coming back to d topic at hand.
why don't we just divide it into half, eat it and live a sin-free existence? because d ungrateful wretches that we are *YES, baking takes effort*, neither likes HALF a slice of cake! so, we'd have to bake another cake, finish this slice and attack d new one! hmm...
and thus, the tale continues...
