I’m going to take a wild guess and say that readership will go down this week.  You’re busy with your Christmas get-togethers, your last-minute shopping, your high-society boiled custard tastings.  And of course, many of you are off work this week, and it’s a well known fact that this blog is accessed most between the hours of 9 and 5.

Editor’s Note: You completely made that last one up, didn’t you?

I think so.  But regardless, I’m not going to spend a lot of time blogging this week.  So with the exception of one relatively serious Christmas Day post, you’re going to get a series of snippets I’ve had on the back burner for a while, but never included in this blog.  It will be fast-paced, much like Gaston’s 2.5 Minute Tuesdays.  That way, you can check in with the blog but still get back to your life.  (As a matter of fact, this intro is going to be longer than today’s content.  Go figure.)

Up first: this picture of a real live cake picked up from a real-live bakery:

Good luck, Suzanne!  Sorry your party was lame.

The takeaway: 

  • Listening is important.
  • Writing stuff down is important.
  • But sometimes, common sense trumps it all.
