As proposed (who in the hell says proposed?), today I’m including photos of my Power Rangers Samurai cupcake toppers.
Or should I say ‘Mangled Creatures So Uglai’? If they look a little weird to you, I blame my husband. He tried to ‘help’ and instead deformed these masks into a very creepy existence. I did 30 masks and he ruined 5! And the remaining 25 look absolutely beautiful. Well, okay they don’t look absolutely beautiful. But at least they look like Power Rangers, right? ‘No, they don’t’ you say. Well what do you know. I’m sure my son will think them beautiful (because otherwise he’ll know what will happen to him…)
Anyway I finished these last night while watching reruns of Eureka, so I can have time to bake today. Did I end up baking? Of course not! I lazed (is that a word?) around all day watching the snow fall (and fall and fall) and even more reruns of Eureka (at least I finished season 2). I decided tomorrow would be time enough to bake and decorate my cake.
I had a very fulfilling and fun day, even if it wash’t productive. And by the end of it I even started jotting plot lines for my much fantasized, hardly worked upon collection of short stories. I even wrote 10 lines of the first story and subsequently freaked my husband out when I told him that my first story would be about sexual addiction in marriages.
I don’t know what worried him more, that his wife is writing about sexual addiction. Or his wife is thinking about sexual addiction.
So to sum up, this is what I accomplished today:
1. I wrote 10 lines in my 350 page novel.
2. I changed the template for this blog (in case you hadn’t noticed). I was getting bored of the old one.
3. Jo gave me a black eye with a very strategically timed and well-executed head butt
4. I horribly disfigured and mangled some power rangers
5. I took pictures of my son in his ‘Movember’ pacifier
6. I watched snow. Lots and lots of snow.
PS: Please tell me that they look like Power Rangers. Otherwise I’ll be the laughingstock of Adam’s Grade 1 class. The mom-who-maimed-the-power-rangers.
PPS: I said power rangers too many times, right?
