two things i'm currently fixated on ...

this will be a short post. i'm off to the farmer's market and then apple picking this morning, and i haven't had a cup of coffee yet so i'm a little cranky. it was a hard shift last night. i was the only server and i think at one point every table in the restaurant was filled. which led to some not so quality serving on my part. i even had one patron ask me 3 times why service was so slow and i explained that i was the only one working and then i apologized profusely (even tho i wanted to chuck his bowl of pho on his head). he left me a $2 tip for a $40 tab, in quarters. God bless him. i hope he has crazy gas today.

anyway, i'm going to go post about two things today:

First, the Boobie Bake Off. if you scroll down to the previous post, you'll see my entry for the bake off. please go to Baking Delights and vote. don't forget to email me to let me know you voted, you'll be entered into a raffle to possibly win one of my crocheted creations.

Second, i'm hosting Round Four for the Baking Gals. if you're interested in baking cookies, and doing so for our troops overseas, please head over there to register and join my team! :)

that's all. i did some blogsurfing this week but i'll hold off till next week to pimp them out. i only was able to make one lunch for jab this week, my grandma's shumai, which he loved. i've been busy with cardmaking, for halloween and thanksgiving, but also for big k's bday bash in December. i started on my grandma's scarf so i suspect my next few posts will be more crafty than foodie. bear with me.

    it is such an awesome thing to be a part of. i know i'm barely scratching the surface in sending cookies to this soldier but it is the very least i can do while they are away from home.

    hahaha! CUTTING THE CHEESE! seriously, we're dorks but i love it. i just hope i am never in a situation like that again and that the restaurant manager learned their lesson to not have ONE server on a weekend night.
