Still no cable connection, but a technician will hopefully fix that this week. Yesterday, after posting, I came up with a plan to veto badness for the rest of the weekend. Because you know how you always hear that if you smile even when you’re feeling like crap, eventually the chemicals released from keeping your face in that smiley position will make you feel better?

Martha Stewart Meets MacGyver

Went over to Sheila’s today, for a little change of scenery. After watching the food network for a couple of hours, we were inspired to bake something new and exciting. “That gorgeous lemon raspberry tart the little French chef with the atrocious grammar just made looks good. Let’s do it!” we proclaimed. So we got our ingredients. Well, except for the raspberries. We got blackberries instead because the raspberries looked a little wrinkly and out of season.
