Nothing wants to finish. Or start.

Boy, my Idol story is due tomorrow on the topic of "Unwind," which was my own prompt and which I had an idea for when I submitted the topic... but having started the story, I worry that it's too techie. Or dry. Or something. It would have been fine around Week 5, but I'm not sure it'll cut it in the Top 14. *sigh* Any and all suggestions are welcome at this point. :( Traded prompts with lrig_rorrim, though I would have otherwise probably gone with one of alien_writings' awesome suggestions!

My daughter's birthday is today, and I'm putting the finishing touches on her cake. I feel as if my cake efforts are going backwards—this is just a straight frosting affair, and she picked "giraffe" for some reason and selected from the pictures of animated giraffes I was capable of making. The results are not TOO bad, except for the splotches. Something like inverted chocolate non-pareils would have made nice, uniform spots, but giraffes are not leopards and their 'spots' are not round. So, I have frosting splotches that look less like 'giraffe' and more like... those moles your dermatologist warns you about. o_O

Pictures later, but they will not be impressive—not like some of my previous work (click the "cakes" tag to see).

My son's birthday is in a week, and he has no idea what he wants so I have no idea what to get him! Fourteen is a difficult age, and now that he's outgrown LEGOs and has one single video-game obsession, um... \o?
