I sat down to crank today, and noticed that it was PERFECT disc golf weather. I prepped images, and then decided that rather than rewarding myself for a long day in front of the computer by going out for some DG, I’d go play FIRST while the weather was right, run my pre-trip errands, and then come BACK and work.
Now I’m regretting that choice. The weather was great, but I couldn’t throw approaches for crap and my putting was slop. I ended up 10 over on 18, and the only bright spot was that on the 9 I usually play I was only 2 over. So my “fun” for the day was frustrating, and the shopping I did afterwards was hectic. Saturday at Sam’s Club and Wal-Mart? Ugh.
So here I am back in front of the computer coloring. I’m seven rows in to the 13 that MUST be completed before I depart, and I’m sick of it. What now? I told myself I was not getting out of the chair until the coloring was done. I imagined myself stapled to my desk. I projected a mental state of “nose to grindstone.”
What can I say? I lied, the staples came loose, and my mental projector burnt out a bulb. I’m going to get up and walk around.
When you eat a piece of cake, do you eat the cake first and save the frosting for last? Do you just eat the pieces as they come? Or do you do what I just did and lick all the frosting off first, and then wonder why the lump of licked-over, picked-over cake isn’t appetizing?

Hmm. My mother picks the dolly mixture decorations out of the cake icing….
I leave the frosting for last, but I don’t like eating frosting by itself, so I leave the bit of cake attached to the frosting as well. Then I eat the cake and frosting together.
I also leave the sweetest part for last – if it’s fresh cream, then it’s so much the better by itself. If it’s frosting, then I just have it at the end, after the cake’s gone, so I can savor it properly.
Re: Frosting last
frosting last, but with good amounts of cake still attached to it.
Gotta have the whole enchalada… so to speak.
Cake, frosting, and decoration where applicable. Too much sugar turns my stomach. ;]
Trot, the ballenced, fox…
Actually, what I usually do is scrape most of the frosting off and leave it on the side of the plate, and then eat the good part that’s left. 😛
This is why I prefer pie.
Definitely pie, although there are occasional cakes that can make the list, especially chocolate fudge cake with cherry filling… of course, that’s half pie… 😉
You know, I’m glad you like the idea of playing Frisbee Golf. I only wish you enjoyed *playing* it more.
Hope the rest of the weekend perked up for you! (I’m kinda behind on LJ, but you’re probably behind on reading your email at this point, so I guess it averages out. Or something).
