If you catch the Invader Zim reference, let’s be friends.
But in all seriousness, got some pretty bad news last night and then some sad news today, so it’s been a crummy 24+ hours. Add this to me having already been all stressed because of moving and applying for jobs and a conference I’m giving a talk at soon (!), and I’m well… having an evening.
Part of why I’m going back to the west coast was to recover a lot of parts of me that I left behind after college that gave me happiness. One of those things was cooking and baking! I’ve done basically none of it since moving back to the east coast, and I used to enjoy it so much.
Well, it’s not a start that will set the presses on fire, but it is a start. Pulled a box of cake mix and icing out of its dusty place on a shelf (uh, it’s been through two moves, so I’m not sure I want to know how many preservatives are in here), and finally baked some freaking cupcakes.
Freaking cupcakes. Yes, they have marshmellow filling.
