"Highest caliber of humour there is."

I would like to repeat a witty remark I heard this week.

Try it out, but there are a number of requirements you must meet for your performance to be believable and accurate.

First, you must be very stylish.

Second, you must be wearing a jacket/sweater that is very stylish and hip.

Thirdly, you must have a sharp zipper on said jacket/sweater.

Fourth, you must put a bandaid on your finger.

Now, you’re set.

When someone asks you what happened to your finger (the bandaid might need to be really colourful and gawdy just to make sure people notice it) tell them that you injured it on the

“cutting edge of fashion”.

:) Smile. or Grimace. I can't decide which to do.

So the last few weeks I have had a little problem. It’s called sleeping in. It isn’t too serious yet because I have still managed to get to my morning classes, but definitely NOT with time to spare.
The issue is, I am still fast asleep when I “wake up” to my alarm clock, and swiftly press the off button, instead of snooze.

When that is just what I need, a few more snoozes.
Today I miraculously got ready and out the door in 25 minutes, and I was showered, dressed, teeth brushed, books in bag, full of breakfast and debatably in a decent mood.

I think I will make myself a teaching plan. We have to make these in school. But of course, you first have to recognize the patient/client/person’s readiness to learn. I think I’m ready to enjoy a full night of ZZZZ’s again.

Goal: To avoid mayhem in the wee hours of the morning

Strategies: Do not stay awake past my bedtime (it's a real toughie...)
No delightful daytime naps
Put alarm clock WAY on the other side of the room
Make sure I can hear alarm clock when it is WAY on the other side of the room

How will I know I have achieved this goal: I will notice that my morning routine has become slightly less frenzied. Fairly obvious really. (These teaching plans tend to be that way).
Wish me luck and remember to get some quality ZZZ's too!

Baking a cake can be a very difficult feat, and unfortunately it's the ones that completely go haywire that gain popularity at The masterpiece pictured above is an animal. As for the type, no one is quite sure. I call it the bagel-faced creature.

I think I am going to put myself to the test. Here I am judging someone else's cake, before I attempt to make my own, which is just not fair. Within the next few weeks I will try my hand at cake decorating. Most likely my sister will give me a hand, she's great at this type of thing.
