Time Flies When You're Oh Never Mind.
Not much to report other than workworkwork. I will be working every day until I leave for New Zealand on January 2. Except for Christmas Day and New Year's Day, of course. Oh yeah, and December 30, when I will be at the Eagles game with SFG, PeopleCat and C-Note (yay!). Ok, so it's not so bad, I guess. But I will definitely need a vacation by the end of 2007, that's for freakin' sure.
On the baking front, I got a tip from one of the meat guys at The Circus who said that Canolli-o-rama, the Italian bakery, was not going to carry gingerbread men this year. So I got on the stick and made a whole family reunion's worth of gingerbread men and they freakin' sold out by 10:30 this morning. That's $80 worth of gingerbread men, if you can believe that. Suh-weet.
It appears that the fishmongers who haunt our shop were also quite excited about the gingerbread men. We couldn't find the cookie cutter that I'd purchased over a year ago, which spawned a frantic run to every shop trying to find a large gingerbread man cookie cutter to no avail. Then the next morning it turned up in one of the cabinets right behind the bucket of baking powder (which we use every day so there's no freakin' way we wouldn't have run into that thing at some point in the last 365 days).
