if you ever decide to write as a different persona elsewhere, let me know, because i like your work, and i'd like to keep reading, even if you no longer write about making cheese.

Oh! I'd seen some of these before, but the beluga whale cake is new to me, and I LOVE it! It's darling. I also love carnage on Hoth. I hope when you cut into that cake you said, "I thought they smelled bad on the outside!"

I hate to admit this, because I'm not sure where you're at at the moment, but that last line? If I were drinking coffee, my laptop would be soaked. In fact, I think if I were you in that moment I might have bust out laughing, just because it was so awful. Sorry. Hope you're feeling better!

You take such good care of your kitties. They're lucky to have you as their ladyperson.

I think I read it too! Unless running out with your trash/recyclables to catch the truck happens a lot. (When I lived in Jersey, it was practically every other week!) It's a good story. I enjoyed it the second time through. :)

I liked this entry. Wishing you well, Jayne, with all your endeavors.

Congratulations on the right-up-your-alley job! Think about that, if you can-- that you got a job you like. That's fantastic. And the voices, well, they'll get bored and shut up eventually.

My husband has an egg aversion, which is a shame, because eggs like these are a lot to do for just me. So pretty. Maybe the baby will like eggs when he's older.

It looks soooo tiny in the photo-- almost like doll clothes. Trick of perspective, I guess. It's really sweet, Jayne. I'm glad you got to satisfy your hankering to sew.

These are really great. I wish I had a budget line for jewelry right now, because I would buy more than one. You're a talented lady.

NOM! I'm drooling. I think I might make that. And see if the baby likes mashed tatoes, too.

I'm with joanne. Though the other day I was walking through the park, surrounded by squirrels-- running through the grass, sitting on top of the fence, criss-crossing the pathway. I thought to myself, "Ugh! They really kinda are just like rats, only with fluffy tails!" Then I saw a rat, in the path in front of me. Yeah. That fluffy tail makes a BIG difference.

Oh, Scratchy's version, definitely.

I wonder if it's the same process that made your beet cupcakes tequila-sunrise-colored? The not-pinkness, I mean. My mom stopped using pectin in her jellies a while back-- just uses sugar. It took a while for them not to be a little too loose, but she's got it figured out now-- and I think the flavor is better now, too.

I wonder if that waxed twine would be easier to work with. They look good, regardless! Do you ever watch "Family Guy"? I was thinking about the bit when Charlotte the Spider had Tourette's... (I won't write more, since it's a bit blue. But it made me laugh, hard.)

Sounds like the storm was an excuse to have some camping-style fun-- glad to hear it! We didn't even lose power-- just a little water in the hallway. We were lucky, too.

I imagine they're called bread and butter pickles because they are awesome with bread and butter-- which they are. I have to say, I've been a typical pregnant lady on the pickle front-- was eating store-bought versions of these on bread and butter all through my first trimester-- YUM! They look delicious, Jayne. You know, I'm sort of surprised you don't have a mandolin for things like bulk onion slicing. Do you prefer using your mad knife skillz?
