I’ve been happy and angry all day.

Today has been a bit of an odd day.

The good points:
* it’s Friday!!!
* I did a lot of work today, and better yet, everything was easy and low-stress
* I made a cake for a coworker’s birthday, but I was nervous because normally Charlotte makes cakes and didn’t want mine to be compared to hers. (I figured Carolina could take one cake home or give leftovers to Bree.) Turns out Charlotte didn’t make a cake because she was too busy, and they loved my crazy decorating job. (To jazz it up I did trim along the bottom and top with chocolate chips and made a chip heart in the middle, but the two candles I put on made it look like a heart with a pointy Madonna bra). Oh, it tasted really good, too. In fact, it got completely eaten in under ten minutes. I didn’t know what kind of cake she liked, only that she didn’t like brownies, so other than the chocolate chips it was really plain – white cake with white frosting. Turns out, that’s her favorite kind. Plus, someone happened to have a half gallon of Oreo cookie ice cream in the freezer, which went great with the cake.

Despite the cakey success, I’ve been grumpy all day (lack of sleep, feeling sick, PMS, mad at myself for overeating last night, mad at myself for eating cake for lunch today), so while overall I think I’ve been calm and occasionally chipper, I seem to be flying off the handle (internally) at stuff. Thankfully, Toaster seemed to think my snarky and whiney emails were funny. Most are not postable, but at her request (That was darn funny!! You should post that to LJ, if you didn’t find it too embarrassing. =o)) here’s the one that started the day:

“I have already gotten furious at my shoelaces, a doorknob, and a container of yogurt for not doing what I thought they should be doing (ie, tying in a bow, opening, and going peacefully into the frig at work)”

Get this – I was trying very hard to eat low points this week so that I could do whatever I wanted over the weekend and to recover from the amazing Indian dinner last Friday. I had actually lost three of the six pounds I gained and was on my way to a good Thursday (I had 10 points left for dinner, plus had tap danced so got some exercise in). I put in a bag of 1-point microwave popcorn to snack on while steaming some vegetables/cooking some fish because I was quite hungry and didn’t think I could wait twenty minutes without a small snack. My attention split by the vegetables, the popcorn went unmonitored. I can only suppose it got jealous over this lack of attention and burned itself to spite me. So in a fit of pique over my one-point microwave popcorn burning I grabbed the next closest open food item – marshmallows left over from Monkey’s fondue birthday party and chocolate frosting from his cake. After eating that, I thought “screw it” and finished off the Indian food plus a giant chuck of Irish Soda Bread. I went to bed full of shame and cookie dough.

Why didn't I respond to you way back in October using this icon? I have no brain.
