Lather, rinse, repeat.

I missed saying both ‘Happy Easter’ and ‘Happy Spring’ (HAH! Hilarious. They say it’s spring. Apparently the outside temperature hasn’t gotten the memo), so my vicarious cupcake is belated:


Basic white cake recipe, vanilla buttercream, with shredded coconut and jelly beans to look like a nest on top. Good for diabetic comas.

In other news…well, finishing the revisions and dealing with some other non-Thesis crap that I’d rather not write about on a public blog are just turning a large portion of my life into a pile of suck. Either way, I gotta get at least the revisions out of the way in less than a week. Then on Wednesday I hop a plane to New York for a few days.

I think Venezia will still be able to come with me to NYC, just as long as I can put in a bit more progress on the sleeves every night and then get to the seaming and steeking this weekend. More bulletins as events occur.

Watch this space for more exciting blogging to return soon. In the mean time keep the knitting close by and have some discounted Easter bunny chocolate for me.


  1. Yeh, I think we missed the Spring memo here too! šŸ™‚ It’s been snowing all day today. šŸ™‚

    Happy Spring to you too..

    Good Luck with all the revisions etc.. *hugs*

    We just got a Tuesday blizzard, almost as if the weather when ‘oh crap, it’s Tuesday, where’s that snow’.

    *sends hugs, and vodka, and chocolate, and offers to kick-butts and take names)

  3. Argh, good luck with the revisions and general suckiness. It snowed for 3 straight days this weekend, so that Easter/springtime feeling is awfully hard to come by around here.

    Hurray for knitting, chocolate, and the knowledge that spring MUST come sometime.

  4. I was able to stay completely away from the Easter chocolate but the darn surface of the monitor blocked my hand as I reached in for that beautiful little cupcake…. sigh. Life can be cruel :^)

    Good luck with your revisions!

  5. Yummy cupcake – we made some for Easter too with a choc egg hidden inside. Good luck with your revision. Sorry if this post appears twice as had some problem with typepad.

  6. Oh dear, Glenna, I do hope things get better soon. NYC will definitely be exciting.

    Sending good thesis-finishing vibes your way and hoisting a Cadbury cream egg your way.

  7. Weather here has actually been cooperating for the most part. But I still can’t wait for summer.

  8. Go Venezia go! Hope you get to wear her to NYC. Also hope that other miserable things get sorted soon

  9. Hey, sweets!

    I have to admit that I don’t like 3/4 of the ingredients for that cupcake (buttercream frosting, coconut, jellybeans), and it STILL looks like something I’d like to shove into my mouth. Mmmm, sugar.

    I’m sorry about life’s general crappiness, but I’m excited for New York for you, and…yeah. Hugs to you!
