I saw this list of facts on a minion site and laughed myself silly:

1.You are reading this right now.

2.You realize that is a stupid fact.

4. You didn’t notice that I skipped three.

5. You’re checking now.

6. You’re smiling.

7. You’re reading this even though it’s stupid.

9. You didn’t realize I skipped eight.

10. You’re checking and smiling again because of how you fell for it again.

11.  You’re enjoying this.

12. You forgot there are only supposed to be ten facts.

If you aren’t laughing now and you are normal, you are at least smiling and everyone knows that a smile is the forerunner to laughter!

Royal weddings, oh my! I love cake.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are all set to tie the knot. I love a royal wedding, and I love wedding cake — okay, I love any and all cake and I have a special love of the kind of bakery cake that is normally used at weddings, don’t know why, there’s just something about that kind of cake — but I have to admit that even I am not sure about the royal wedding cake pieces that are being auctioned off as a way of getting people even more ‘in the mood’ for this particular royal happening.

I mean, I’m not sure that even I, the cake lover of all time, want a piece of 37-year-old wedding cake. But it’s out there! Really. Yes. It is.

Shortly, Julien’s Auctions will auction off several slices of wedding cake from previous royal weddings. If you’re into really aged royal wedding cake and have very deep pockets, you can purchase pieces from William and Kate’s wedding in 2011, Charles and Camilla’s in 2005, and Charles and Diana’s in 1981.

Seems that guests at those weddings have been saving them in the freezer so they should be good enough to eat. Still, I think I’ll pass on mummified wedding cake.

Maybe I’ll stop by the local bakery, buy a white cake with white frosting and chow down while watching Harry and Meghan tie the knot on TV. Or maybe I’ll pass on the show and just enjoy the cake. Or nibble away while working on my next romance because — think about it — romance involves weddings and weddings involve cake.

Is that why I like cake so much? Don’t know.

I just know that I do love cake.

Tree huggers and Earth Day

My sister is a bit of a tree hugger at heart. You know how people who trek to a foreign country sometimes come home obsessed, wearing the clothes, eating the food, and sprinkling their speech with words from the place they visited? My sister says that’s how she’ll be if she makes it to heaven one day, sporting an Earth t-shirt and endlessly saying “Remember Earth? Wow, that place was so amazing.” Every Earth Day, I can count on her to share the most beautiful naturalist quotes and the most heart-stopping photos of landscapes. I’m grateful for my sister’s example of loving and showing gratitude for this stunning planet. Among all the miracles of nature, there’s nothing that beats a great sister.
