Pick it Up, Put it in the Bag, Boop Boop

This may have been one of my most proudest accomplishments to date. I am by no means cuisinely inclined so this is a large deal. Yesterday I created this cake to celebrate Earth Day, and to have a dessert for my BBQ fiesta I hosted last evening at my house. I am very proud of my cake as I think it looks a lot like the earth. I even put Japan on there. It's lucky the cake lasted as long as it did, however there was a very close call. As people entered my house, with me being giddy and perhaps slightly intoxicated, I would run over with the cake to show them my creation and explain to them how it is kind of a play on words (a pun, if you will) that Happy Earth Day is like saying Happy Birthday. Just without the B. And the I. And with an E and A instead. SO, as I was carrying the cake, it slipped off the plate. And because of Sir Isaac Newton, we all know that a piece of bread will always land on the peanut buttered side, so in slow motion I watched my cake fall to its tragic death. All of the sudden, like a cowboy in the sunset, Nick Blanchard magically appeared ( well I mean, he was actually at the house and it wasn't like he was a wizard and just POOF he was there) and reached out his hand and caught the cake just barely inches away from the floor. I had never seen anything like it. Thank you Nick. So the near cake death experience was a good indicator that it was time to eat it. Despite Nick's hand print embedded on the cake, everyone enjoyed the cake so much that there are no left overs.

The whole evening was a smash. Even though it was a little chilly out, there were games of soccer, frisbee, catch, round-off competitions (,me,gymnastics.Vancouver 2010) and hackey sack all being played. Sing alongs in the living room with Ian on guitar and Joel on the bongos, and a lemon meringue pie throwing contest. At my face. SO thanks to all that came and brought food, it tasted lovely. We'll do it again when its warmer. I'll whip out the sprinkler and the Slip-and-Slide

Guido for Pope

Father Guido Sarducci on the 10 Commandments:

There were actually more than ten, but Moses was old and grumpy, and after he broke the tablets he could only remember the negative ones. "Thou shalt not do this. Thou shalt not do that." The truth is, most of them were more like advice. The Twelfth Commandment, for example, was "Whistle while you work." People think its from Disney, but Disney stole it from God. Posted by Hello

Butterflies and Zebras and Moonbeams and Fairytales

How gross is this! SNOW! I am positively sure I was in my barefeet throwing a football and doing handstands in the yard yesterday. Not at the same time mind you, but wouldn't that be a talent! The poor little birdies, all jet lagged from their migration only to be teased by the sunlight and warm air. Mother Nature must PMS'ing. However there is one good thing about this snowfall. That now I don't have to stare out the large picture window in my kitchen, fantasizing about all the fun things I could be doing outside while I'm studying. Now I can study in peace, without having the guilt of feeling like I'm missing out on fresh air goodness. But Snow, you have to be gone and the grass has to be dry by 12pm, April 20th. Pinky swear.

Dancing in the Moonlight

Guess what I did last night WHILE working at the Wave? Played guitar at open mic! My bro, Ian, was there and we decided we would do a Dunsford Family Duet. We played Green Eyes by Coldplay, both playing guitar, Ian singing. He sounded splendid. However the guitar I was playing was missing the G string, making it feel a little strange, but it still sounded normal.

It was quite exciting, especially having 30-some people clap for you and Joel yelling out "I LOVE YOU ASHLEY!" It shall happen again, but I'll warn you all next time so that I can have a fan club.
