Happy Birthday to Me.

Just a quick note to say how completely overwhelmed I am by all the awesome notes on Twitter and Facebook.

You all rock and I’m so terribly, terribly grateful.

That being said, I completely suck at baking, apparently. Or maybe it’s something else.

mr myn was supposed to work today. Note I said *supposed to.* Note that he is currently not at work.

You may infer from that what you will.

1) mr myn ran to the store this morning. Bought cake mix. I made said cake. It baked. It was lovely. Cake completely crumpled out of the Bundt pan after cooling and became a big hot mess.

2) mr myn ran back out to the store. Bought more mix. Bought Baker’s Joy for inside of Bundt pan. Bought a different brand of cake which required less butter and water. Which I did not read. Cake did not make it into oven as batter was nothing but a big watery ass mess.

3) mr myn ran back to the store. Bought original cake mix. And another box in case I fucked this one up too. Said cake is now iced and ready to eat on my table.

On the other hand, while fixing himself a much needed drink, the seltzer water bottle exploded all over the kitchen, drenching me. And the floor. And the counter.

I wept.

The cake has survived.

I am not attempting to make dinner. Pizza is now ordered. Anime is pre-loaded into dvd player. As soon as children go to bed and True Blood is over, I am watching some sort of gore-and-sex fest. Hopefully with vampires. Or daemons. Maybe tentacles. So HELP ME.
