What's making you happy today?
I gots no chillrens. Driving age, nor otherwise.

But you got babbits and squirls.
Now that is enough to make anyone happy :)

Okay, steak and a blowjob might help, but sometimes you have to enjoy what you get.

For me, it was a very simple pleasure this morning.
I had my morning bottle of sippy-drink (Fresubin - prescribed to help my recovery, not doing anything for my waistline though!) and I thought it was lemon. The lemon one is yucky, but they gave me a lot of them. Assorted flavours? Hardly. I think it was a deliberate slight because I specified No Banana Flavour.

Anyway, sucked it up like the medicine it is, only to find when I stopped to draw breath that it was actually chocolate!
Nom nom nom. Was not left with a bad taste in my mouth.

Via glatt's earlier Springsteen posting and lj's followup of the beer chugging moment and my posting the 91-year-old fan he danced with... this hits just keep on coming, another great Springsteen moment occurred last night,

Bruce Springsteen gives 9-year-old fan the best tardy note ever


A young Bruce Springsteen fan got out of being late to class in the most rock ’n’ roll way possible — by getting a note signed by The Boss himself!

The 9-year-old devotee, Xabi Glovsky of Claremont, Calif., was at the singer’s sold-out show in Los Angeles Tuesday night with his dad, Scott Glovsky, when they caught the rocker’s eye with a homemade sign.

“Bruce, I will be late to school tomorrow. Please sign my note :),” their poster read.

And once the concert ended, that’s exactly what he did.

“Dear Ms. Jackson, Xabi has been out very late rocking & rolling. Please excuse him if he is tardy,” Springsteen scrawled on a piece of loose-leaf paper after he had security personnel escort the father-son duo backstage.

Bruce for the win.

xoxoxoBruce 03-19-2016 01:46 PM

Twist... Mr Jackson sues for possession of the note. :lol:

Why in hell would a parent hang Xabi on their kid?
I can see Xabi and Scott duking it out in the mud, the blood, and the beer.

Griff 03-19-2016 06:07 PM

To be fair, this same parent took him to a Springsteen concert.

xoxoxoBruce 03-19-2016 07:00 PM

Only out of guilt for saddling the kid with a name, nobody can pronounce or spell.
Or maybe couldn't get a sitter.
Or trying to top the ex-wife.
Or to help pick up chicks.
Or some other evil intent.

Excellent 'Boy Named Sue' reference. Outstanding, really.

I've worked really hard over the last couple of months and it's starting to pay off. Most of my weeks I'm taking around $1000 worth of orders or more. My target is $1500 steady by the end of the year, so it looks like it should be achievable. This is because I am asking a bit more for most of my cakes, and also because I'm producing more intricate styles which allow me to ask a premium price. Ideally, I'd like to get to a stage where I only have 3 or 4 orders each week, but they're all worth about $500. At the moment, I do probably 7 or 8 orders per week with only one being in the price range I'm targeting. This means a lot of remembering to order bits and pieces from my suppliers etc. Obviously with only 3 or 4 designs to think about, there's a lot less running around, which leads to more profit. It's been a good first quarter though, and my business account is starting to look good. I'm hopeful it will be good enough to allow me to buy a new (second hand) car for work before long.

I'm mostly happy that I don't have any orders this week, so I get to have a breather over the easter break. :)

xoxoxoBruce 03-21-2016 12:39 AM

What, no crucifixion, or Easter bunny cakes?

Aliantha 03-21-2016 01:01 AM

Nope. haha I will probably do some for the kids towards the end of the week, but nothing too fancy I don't think.

So your business plan is to let them eat cake, to bring in the bread, so you'll be rolling in dough. :3_eyes:
