cocoa = death
you know how sometimes monday mornings seem painful and unnecessary? yeah, my monday was like that.
this morning i got up a little early to begin mixing a cake. tonight we're going to dinner at a friend's house and i offered to bring dessert, but i knew i wouldn't have a ton of time after work to bake the cake. wanting to save time, i decided to make the batter this morning and then just throw it in the oven at 5 p.m.
7:20 a.m. i grabbed a brand new can of cocoa powder out of the cupboard. it was vacuum-sealed so i went to pull off the top -- and it exploded ALL. OVER. ME. all over my clothes, hair, face, kitchen, floor.
of course i had the presence of mind to tell b to get the camera ["this would make a great blog!"] but mostly i was pissed for 10 minutes. i got back in the shower, finished getting ready, picked a new outfit and still made it to work on time by 8 a.m. i am STILL finding cocoa in the weirdest places...like my belly button. and inside my nose. yuck.
[oh yeah, my hair is darker now. it's not done in this photo, but you get the idea.]
this cake better be freaking amazing.
