Bone-Chilling (October) Saturday & a Hilarious Website

Why do the weather newscasters never warn us when to expect a weekend of blustery, bone-chilling wind?  You can be sure that when they say it will be hot and sweltering, it won’t be.  And when they say it will be cool, that’s when it will be hot and sweltering.

Today, self’s hands and lips are sooo chapped. She and hubby went to see “The Invention of Lying” at the downtown Century 20 (Five Stars! Ricky Gervais killed! Also, there is a short appearance by Edward Norton, and what’s so cool about his one scene is that it’s not immediately apparent that it is Ed Norton — I looked up the movie on IMDB, and after scrolling down a seemingly endless list of actors and actresses, I thought I’d made a mistake. But no, there was his name: the very last on the list, and even then the entry says only “uncredited, unconfirmed.” What convinced self that it was indeed he was the voice. — Edward, hurry up and make more movies! Self misses you!).  Self nearly froze on the walk from the car to the theater (Very interesting: there were hardly any people in the audience, but of the few hardy souls who were there for the first screening of the day, two were deep into books, and one was using the cutest little pink book-light, which succeeded in arousing self’s most sincere envy).

After the movie, hubby couldn’t wait to get home to catch up on all his football games (Stanford vs. somebody, Notre Dame vs. somebody, Cal vs. USC, and so forth and so on), and self went to the Atherton library to pick up a copy of Ayelet Waldman’s novel, Love and Other Impossible Pursuits (The Sherman Alexie blurb is possibly the most adoring blurb self has ever read: it says he read the novel in one sitting, and would sit down and read it again, even a third time!), and passed by Whole Foods to get something we could have for dessert this evening, and lo and behold, there was a Pineapple Upside Down Cake, which self hasn’t seen for months, possibly years, and a whole cake was only $12.99, and it was even embellished with sliced kiwi and raspberries. Self snapped it up, and afterwards at least two other people said to self, “Oh, that looks sooo good!”

By the time self got home, her wind chimes were swinging wildly in the blustery winds, and it was just free-zing!

Self also promised dear blog readers a link to a hilarious website:

Here it is. It is a site devoted to pictures of the most terrible cake wrecks of all time. The cake for Oct. 3 is particularly BWAH. HA. HA. HA. HAAAAAAAA !!!!

Self feels so sorry for all the bakers in the world who have not yet discovered the wonderful genius of the Goldilocks birthday cake. Self was so happy that there was a Goldilocks in South San Francisco, for she ordered all of son’s birthday cakes from there, every single year until he turned 12 or so and became too old for cake. Son had cakes that featured Ninja Turtles climbing up buildings (two years in a row), cakes with dancing bears, cakes with lion kings, and so forth and so on. Self thinks Goldilocks birthday cakes should be considered folk art.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.
