Heart to heart


Just having an intense heart to heart with my little friend here….she’s a great listener.  Best ever.


Happy 50th birthday to my favorite!!

Eddie. Eddie Vedder.  I love that man.

And he is 50!  I was never quite certain of Eddie’s age… 50. So great.  I’m happily envisioning him kicking back, drinking wine, rosy cheeked, squeezing his kids.  I hope he’s savoring some delicious morsels and belly laughing with his best friends. 

I sincerely hope that when I’m 50 I’ve inspired some young people.  I also hope I’m rosy cheeked and belly laughing.  That is happiness. 

Thanks, Eddie!  Happy birthday!!

Let them eat cake


After a long hiatus from drawing anything, I pulled this cake design out of my ass and impressed all the kids.

Granted, it’s no sculptural, fondant covered, food network worthy cake.  It tastes great and is homemade by a mom for her kid.  That’s what kid birthdays are about.  Moms making it cool and special. 

Plus I make a damn good frosting. 

It’s been nearly two weeks since I made it…and I have to make another fancy cake for this weekend for lovely #2.  My spring babies.  Why does it break my heart that they are getting so big?  9 and 6?  How can this be?  They should still be snuggly and innocent…

I used to get to make whatever cake design I wanted.  Now I’m a slave to Sonic and Mario and the Frozen girls.   

On love…

Oh love. Sometimes I feel like I’ve got it all figured out and other times it bitch slaps me across the face. Valentine’s day….it doesn’t really make me love anything or anyone any more. It’s just cute and kitschy, really. But I do love a good heart shaped pizza. And I do love a big piece of ice cream cake…man, that fudge layer and chocolate crunchy things are to die for. I also love being in my geriatric bed at 9 pm watching whatever romantic comedy they decide to play on fx or usa. I love the people that hate Valentine’s day too…like it’s out to get them. It can’t really hurt you unless you give it a knife to stab in your heart…. I love the day after Valentine’s day…because things go back to normal and all the cute Valentine’s day garb at target goes on sale. Hell yeah I want those cute ass plates for 70% off!
