still Thursday already Friday somewhere in the world! Thank God.
I may or may not have been blasting some Rebecca Black as I started a new page for this post.
One of the best parts of having an entire two-room bedroom apartment to yourself is that anything goes the moment your pinky toe crosses that blessed threshold.
Rocking out to One Direction and Carly Rae Jepsen into the weest of the wee hours? Of course.
Staying up all night at Disney movie marathon sleepovers that would make fifth-grade girls emerald with envy? Uh, yeah.
Dunking your entire hand into the bowl of cake batter instead of reaching for a mixing spoon because it’s in a drawer that’s ten whole feet away from you? Now we’re talking, my friend.
Lounging on your couch like a boss on a Thursday night in nothing but what your momma gave you and with a glass of pinot noir in your well-manicured hand?
Okay, I haven’t tried that last one. Yet. Apparently maintenance has the key to every apartment in this building, meaning they are allowed to come in without so much as a “hello resident-on-whose-territory-we-are-totally-intruding, you should really put your fig leaves over whatever you don’t want exposed to these eyes.”
Of course, by the time I’m finished with this kamikaze quarter of teaching, coursework, and having a social life the size of a pea, I may just throw in (or rather, away) the towel, grab my fig leaves, and start lounging to my heart’s content. With my pinot noir. For which I will accordingly acquire a refined taste that I currently don’t possess.
As with most things that don’t involve legal persecution or intense self-reevaluation of my worth as a human being, I grossly exaggerate here. My social life has actually been moving along quite swimmingly as of late, thank you very much.
I can’t go into any details about it, though
They might be
By “they,” I mean the incredibly attractive young men working as incredibly successful entrepreneurs at an incredibly well-established corporation that still manages to hang onto its good ol’ homey American values.
You know, the ones currently residing in…my head.
Or Storybrook, to be more precise.
Yeah, I’ve started watching Once Upon a Time.
It kind of sucks…
…that my life has been summarily sucked up by it.
You know what else sucks?
Not these cupcakes.
We whipped up a batch of these for one of the guys in our department celebrating his birthday this week. If you like a) the idea of a steaming mug of hot chocolate dipped into your morning wake-up call with a hint of autumnal flair, or b) being awesome, you need to try these cupcakes.
(These filled cupcakes were made for Julie’s baking challenge over at Willow Bird Baking–she’s a fantastic gal, so this is something else you should definitely check out if you like, again, being awesome.)

Chocolate, coffee and cinnamon? What a perfect combination of flavor. And oh yeah…it’s wonderful to have the whole apartment all to yourself! I can never get any quiet time at my house…hahaha.
Oh gosh, I can only imagine what it’s like having the kids running around! Maybe you can get them to calm down for a sec with this great combo of chocoffeeamon?
Fun writing – almost free verse. (OK, not really but with a bit of effort it could be there.) If your lease allows it, one of those chain thingies on the door is great deterrent against maintenance guy’s keys, I’d think. All of which has nothing to do with Cheesecake-Filled Chocolate Cupcakes w/Coffee Cinnamon Frosting. Cheesecake is my friend, so anything that contains it or even references it is something that gets my full attention. These look terrific, and I’d certainly have one. Or two. 😉 Good stuff – thanks.
Coming from you, I take that as a great compliment! Maybe I should write my next post in free verse…hm…or maybe I’ll just eat another one of those cupcakes as I ponder. (Or at least I would, if there were any left!! I hope you get to try it!)
