sullen princess - by me


You know it's going to be a bad day when you wake up with an anxiety attack.

On the bright side, I have written out a list of things I need to do today and have already ticked off seevral of them.

But sometimes I get really sick and tired of having to live my life in 'damage control' mode. Living isn't meant to be so difficult, you know? Yes, sure, I'm whining and it's all my own fault and blah blah blah. I'm just saying that I'm jealous of all you people who have reasonably content lives.

Incidentally, I must have splattered myself with boiling oil when I was cooking a few days ago, because I have burns in a splash pattern on my arm. Funny thing is that I only kind of remember it.

confounding the normals

I'm thinking of baking a cake for May 1st this year and leaving it, anonymously, in the tea room at work with a little note saying "Happy Beltane - Please Help Yourself". I find this oddly, inexplicably amusing given the number of Christians in the building (a few of which boarder on Creationist-fundie). Because, quite frankly, there are far too many people in the building who think I am of a faith that I am not, and I like to surprise people. I know most people here won't even understand the reference (after all, the word "Beltane" has nothing to do with football), but I suspect it will give me a bit of a chuckle.

If I do it, it'll have to be an unexpected, unusual sort of a cake. Like a lemon-rosemary cake or something. Any 'unusual' sort of cake recomendations are welcome.
