I've been busy trying to keep up with the Bleeding Cuticles Roadkill Challenge. So far so good, but the nightly bedtimes of 1:00-2:00am are taking a toll. Nuts.

I'm making Christopher a monster-themed cake, which I'll post pictures of later.
Hope you're all having a great summer so far. How can it be August already?
And in political news: oh Target, why do you make me boycott your cluelessly discriminatory ass? :(
