If only I were around for the 4 prior ones-I would have eaten up the shards so you would not have to see it!

FAIL again. I am going to try adding two more eggs. It's too bad because I really like the cake as is (well, I cut the sugar by two ounces after the initial two because it really can do with less). The person who made it as a roulade must be doing some major voodoo because this cake is not meant for rolling! I can see a crack in one of her photos, but overall it holds!

Maybe! This cake is from Rose Levy and it's baked as a bundt. I've made similar as a pound cake as well. This is the only instance of someone making it into a roulade. I can roll it without it cracking, but once it's unrolled to fill it it ends up in pieces.

That should be your first clue. Haha. You do remember that you are in the Smoky Mountains, right?

I'm so freaking frustrated right now. Found out that some friends are having another baby. Their baby now is less than 9 months old. These people can't even go a week without almost breaking up. Yet we've been trying for 3 years and nothing. Why do all the irresponsible people get baby after baby while we sit here without even any answers.

I'll try to avoid a *it makes perfect sense that people can brew their own beer, etc, but it's illegal to properly make your own moonshine* rant.

Murrrtutles,
I hope you're keeping yourself pure, young lady, because I'd like to arrange a prearranged marriage between you and my son as soon as he's of age. He will be allowed to start dating when he's 40. Until then we're scouting for the appropriate launch pad and your front steps are lookin' good so far.

I try not to rant about work stuff on here but I am just beating myself up over this. I am such an idiot. Basically, I have this motion which has my client pitted against the police, and the procedure is not what I thought it was based on what the case management judge told me. So, I followed what he said and filed my motion 3 weeks ago. Never heard anything back from the police lawyer who I expected would have sent me materials a week ago. After repeatedly trying to contact their lawyer, he e-mails me just this evening saying that it is actually a different statutory procedure, so everything I filed is wrong, not in the content or in making it clear what I'm seeking, but in little things like how it is labelled and formatted.

So he isn't filing any response and is basically just going to ask the judge to bounce my motion. And the judge probably will, and that's fair, because I didn't check to make sure I had the right procedure and that's my fault. It's not really a biggie - I apologize for wasting court time, I go back, re-jig everything and file again - pain in the butt for me and I can't bill for it since it was my mistake, but oh well. But I'm mad a) at myself for making that mistake and b) at the police lawyer for being an a-hole and waiting till the last minute so I wouldn't have a chance to fix it and wasting all of our time just to play a game and make a point. I am actually trying to get justice for my client and he'd rather play games and stonewall me, and I am basically letting him through my own stupidity. I could scream.

I feel like her trip was fake, I didn't see it but I feel like it was fake because if you've seen her in interviews/real life/ whatever, she seems like she would trip on purpose to be a jokster.

/\ don't beat yourself up. What good advice did you give some curly (me) a few months ago? Everyone makes mistakes and yourself isn't good! Sorry the other lawyer was an a-hole. Procedure has to be followed but I don't think being a douche is in the rule books.

The donuts are tomorrow. Tonight I make pre-ferment and tomorrow I make the final dough, cut, and fry and fill. Then I'll make the rounds to distribute the donuts.
Tomorrow I also cut my croissants (I did all the laminating earlier today) and freeze them for baking the next time I'm home. I'll take a little bit of dough for danishes to use up my lemon cream.
Imma try to make that whipped cream cake roulade one more time because I'm a glutton for punishment who can't admit defeat.
I'm annoyed that I forgot to buy some ham for ham and cheese croissants! The plan was pretzel croissants, but I thought I'd do a few plain and some ham and cheese, too. Oh well. No, I will not make pain au chocolat, chocolate stans go home!

8 days ago, I left one of my credit cards at a bar during a singles mixer. Where I met someone. Since I happened to have met someone at the place, it wasn't such a bad thing. I canceled the card the next day and I already have a new one.

Tonight, I went to another mixer at a bowling alley for a social bowling league that starts next week. And proceeded to leave my debit card at the bar there. I have called the place and they said they'd hold it for me and I'm picking it up tomorrow. Please tell me I don't have dementia.

Just cheese isn't nearly as fun as ham and cheese. I'll just have to slice a few open and stuff them after they're baked.
I am thinking of cheese-stuffed pretzels for future projects, though. Maybe cheese and pepperoni!
