Quandary … or however you spell that word that means “kerfluffle”…

I’m in a huge kerfluffle or that other word that I am not sure I know how to spell correctly.  Talk about spelling… since I don’t know how to spell “misspell” correctly, I just say… spelled it incorrectly.  But once again I digress.  I’m good at digressing.  I’m also good at babbling.  Which should be 100% obvious here right now!!!  Anyhow.  About the kerfluffle.  Is that even a word?  I ask that question A LOT.  We used to call made up words “Gilisms” but that’s for another day.

I have been hungry for a Three Musketeer bar for DAYS now.  DAYS, I tell you!  Not just a candy bar.  No “any old” candy bar will do.  I am specifically hungry for a Three Musketeer bar.  The funny thing is this.  Since I went through chemo, I don’t even LIKE chocolate.  Before chemo it was like a food group to my body.  Now it tastes like eating acid.  Not that I ever truly have tasted acid.  But I can imagine… I’m good at imagining.  Oops.  Another digression.

So my kerfluffle is this.  I would have to get dressed tonight (I am NOT sitting here naked.  I am ready to crawl into bed!) and get in the Tundra and drive somewhere to buy a Three Musketeer bar.  Heaven forbid if I would actually WALK to the little convenience store about a mile away.  Or ride my bike!  That would take exercise.  This is getting ridiculous.

Anyhow, I DO have a Betty Crocker fudgy brownie or is it fudgey brownie mix.  If I made them, I’d have enough chocolate treats for the next two weeks.  Which is a perfect amount of time… but that’s another digression.  But I would have to do all of that measuring and mixing and spreading and baking and the timing.  OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS… it tires me out just to think about all of that work!!!

Sooooo I guess what I’ll do is drink a glass of water.  With a handful of M & M’s.  They’re left over from Christmas.  HAHAHA!!! That should really satisfy my longing for a Three Musketeer bar.  Right?


But THAT my friends is a topic for another day.  Right now I am tired after all of this thinking.

I have the great honor of baking the CAKE for The Captain’s Speech blog party to be held at precisely the stroke of midnight, June 23rd… FUN!!!

Amazing_Huge_CakeEveryone within reading distance of the invitation is invited to join the fun, frivolity and festivities!!!

Here are some ideas I have found for the cake I am to bake…  AND (I had to insert an “AND”, Paul… in your honor!) am leaning toward the lopsided cakes.  Get it?  LEANING TOWARD!!!  hahahaha…

I am ESPECIALLY fond of this last one as it is my most FAVOURITE (I purposely spelled favorite this way since The Captain is Canadian and we Yanks know how they like to add those “u” letters to EVERYTHING!!) colour.  Periwinkle!  Yes!  There is such a color as periwinkle 🙂

keep calm and eat cakeNow, I need to put some great thought into this most honourable of responsibilities.  I am in a full fledged kerfluffle over this …. some word.  Opportunity!

let themJust for fun… I am adding this most disgusting of cakes.  Looking at this photo makes me want to throw up!

20110814-1056357-2Let me know your opinions and I shall get busy on this baking post haste!!!

What a party this shall be!!!

OKay… “S”… here is your challenge… TOP THIS!!! hahahaha…

My dearest “S”… you know who you are little lady from Canada…  You have been posting photos of OUTRAGEOUS foods and drinks all day today.  Therefore my pathetic task of eating leftovers from my fridge is just not feeding my hunger pangs.  Neither is the bag of potato chips I am munching on right now.  HAHA

So IF I were to cook tonight, here is what I would be cooking.  TOP THIS!

green beans penne 280x190_ew_plank_grilled_salmon_recipe

That is too funny… look how the photos progressively grew from left to right!  I didn’t do that on purpose.

BUT… we have sauted green beans with some white stuff sprinkled on top.  Could be slivers of almonds or cheese or mold.  I’m betting on the mold.  Not really.  Then you have a delightful penne pasta salad with homemade vinaigrette dressing and fresh veggies.  FINALLY, the piece de resistance (I’m trying to sound sophisticated here) you have the salmon.  Created on a plank.  Walk the plank then use it to cook.

Then, for dessert, there would be Baked Alaska or Flaming something or Flan.  Or potato chips.

So… girly girl… now it is YOUR turn.  Top This!  Really.  Try to top this!!!  hahaha

I have a MAJOR case of “the sillies” right now!

Courtesy of my junk email box, I suddenly am feeling super silly!  I kind of feel like that stuff that comes out of an aerosol can that kids like to spray – Silly String!

Anyhow… I just emptied my junk half an hour ago and guess what?  Well, these people must know something that I don’t because it is filled up again with emails offering me Viagra and Cialis.

Now, please bear with me through this whole thing but today is kind of a “day” in my life and Viagra and Cialis are not on my list of things to be thinking about.  So, in looking for photos to enhance this blurb, I found some of the funniest stuff.  At least they are funny to me.  If you don’t like them, please change the channel NOW.  HAHA
