Is it possible to get diabetes from just looking at pictures of desserts?

I've recently discovered the fabulous Bakerella ( and am quite enjoying looking at her mouth-watering recipes. (With plenty of pictures, of course.)

I love baking, and I can't wait to try some of these recipes...

Like these S'More's cupcakes
Smore CupcakesAnd this peanut butter cup fudge cake
Peanut Butter Cup CakeOr this cream cheese pound cake
I probably shouldn't make them all in the same week, even though I want to. Heck, I want to go bake them all right now! And then eat them. All. Right now.

But.... I probably shouldn't......

Patented Day-After-Haircut Regret

Well, I got my hair cut yesterday. Finally. It had been like, a year. I have a fear of getting my hair cut.

I never, ever like it. Ever.

Yesterday, after the stylist, a perky spiky-haired girl with tattoos, was finished, I was amazed. I actually liked it! Or so I thought.

When I woke up this morning, there it was. My Patented Day-After-Haircut Regret. There is no cure. Well, except time. It will grow back. And usually after a few days I feel okay. I get used to it, I guess.

I wonder if this is revealing deeper aspects of my personality, like a fear or dislike of change, or maybe just a fear of hairstylists.

This particular haircut must not be that different, because nobody really noticed at work. Greaaat.

Something to think about

I realized something today. Something that I probably should have realized a long time ago.

In looking at the world from the perspective of a "writer," I tend to view my surroundings, and often the people around me, with the slant of a cynic. (Sometimes a very biting one at that.)

Why can't I just see the good in people? I want to. I'm going to make an effort to look for the great smiles and the caring hearts and the intellegence and all of the great things about people. I always hope that people notice the good things about me, and I guess I owe them the same courtesy.

The hard thing about this, is that I don't have a problem seeing the many virtues of those whom I like, but I have a difficult time realizing the merit in those whom I do not like.

Why is it that the negative movie reviews are so much more entertaining than the positive ones? Not only that, but I feel that we all have a tendency to believe the bad comments more than the good ones. And it is the bad ones that stick with you forever, and grate on you like a cheese grater!

Maybe all of my biting comments should be restricted to my creative writing, and not my everyday life. I have a feeling that this will be a habit that is hard to break, but one that is definitely worth breaking.

I am a horrible do-what-I-say-I'm-gonna-do person. Okay, not all the time. I'm usually a reliable person. But apparently I cannot keep up with this blog! I keep saying yadda yadda, I'm gonna write everyday, and all I'm really saying, apparently, is that I will faithfully write for a few days, then get so busy that I don't write for weeks.


Good thing this blog isn't my boyfriend, or he probably would have dumped me.

To make up for being so remiss, I will share an amazing discovery. It is called It shows new pictures of puppies every day!! Trust, me. Happiness is just a click away.
