HI MY WEEKEND HAS BEEN LAME. Nothing happened
, I have just been bored and am PMSing, which makes me tremendously miserable BUT THEN TODAY I WENT INTO TOWN TO BUY THINGS TO BAKE. I did not have self raising flour and I wanted to make fairy cakes. I also had nothing to decorate them with and wanted more food colouring for the icing, since I only had red.
It was largely unproductive in terms of decorative things, nowhere had anything other than the basic sprinkles etc etc. I almost got cherries and stuff but decided I didn't really fancy going the classy route as opposed to the cutesy route, so I got sprinkles and sweets and stuff. And blue and green food colouring.
(forgive the fairly crummy image quality. I took this on my iPhone, SINCE MY CAMERA BROKE AND ALL)
I always forget exactly how happy it makes me to bake. Like, it makes me really
happy. I always underestimate the power it can have to pick me up. It is so fucking therapeutic, damn. I love that it has this methodical but creative process to it, that it feels so productive and rewarding to go from all of these raw ingredients to having it all slowly combine to this smooth, pretty little bowl of batter. And it makes my arms fucking ache because I am weak and soft, but I even love THAT. It makes it more rewarding. I refuse to use a processor because it feels like cheating, I don't feel like it would be even half as fun. I love the smell and the way that the icing sugar puffs up into a little cloud of dust when you tip it out of it's bag, and the relief and satisfaction when you take the tray/s out of the oven and everything is golden and perfectly risen. The whole thing reminds me of being little, too. Of baking on a Saturday with either one of my grandmas. It's a big part of why I find it so comforting and relaxing, it puts me in a totally different mindset and I feel calm and carefree for a while. Seriously, I am legitimately happy
Also I just read Kristin's calendar for when all of the summer shows are starting.01.
True Blood I was aware of, but YOU GUYS IT IS SO FUCKING SOON!! Yay, because USofT and Nurse Jackie are almost done :(02.
WHY IS HUNG STILL SO FAR AWAY. June 27th, boo.03.
FUTURAMA IS STARTING ON JUNE 24TH, WHY DIDN'T I KNOW THIS?! Ahhhh, I hope it's good, it has been so long (the specials don't count, and they were only okay anyway) ♥04.
The C Word is not The C Word anymore, it is now The Big C? I preferred the original title, but am just happy that it came to fruition, I didn't know where they were with it. Just that it was cast and slated for like, autumn? But it starts August 16th!! Which is still forever away, but God I'm excited. I absolutely fucking love the teaser trailer. LOOK AT IT;
So good. Darkly witty and pretty deeply sad. And who the fuck doesn't love Laura Linney, anyway? It looks awesome in gen, have the full trailer;05.
Weeds is back the same day as The Big C starts, and since last season was actually really good again, especially toward the end, I'm looking forward to it again. I should probably rewatch last season though, it is something of a blur.
