I realize that nothing lasts forever and that everyone has to deal with their own immortality eventually, but there are just some constants that I become so accustomed to being around that when they DO shuffle off this mortal coil, I can’t help but feel kinda numb. I felt that way when Vincent Price passed away, Bea Arthur and now 2 childhood pop culture icons in one day: Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson. Wow. I realize that they were 10-20+ years older than me, but it feels like we grew up together; Farrah having a HUGE impact on 70’s iconography, Michael doing the same for the 80’s. Of course I didn’t know them on a personal level, but whatever their personal history, I can’t help but be more than a little saddened that they will no longer be a part of our physical world. I guess it will have to be enough that they will live on forever in our pop culture world.
I swung by my friend Gary’s store in nearby Handley today, and did a little retail therapy, then went around the corner to the Créme De La Créme cake shop. If you remember, I’ve mentioned before that in addition to making cakes for special occasions, they also sell cakes by the slice, as well as cupcakes. Well, I decided to try their pineapple cocoanut cake. I asked if it was a ‘wet’ cake (kinda like pineapple upside down cake or a cake with ‘chunks’ of fruit, etc.), but she assured me that it was a pineapple FLAVORED cake with fresh cocoanut frosting (i.e. none of the usual cocoanut ‘flakes’…much smoother). And OMG, if it wasn’t the best cake I think I’ve ever tasted. EVER. It was perfect. I now officially have a favorite cake, just so you know.
Also, I finally got caught up (read addicted) with the most recent episode of Harper’s Island (episode 10). Now I just have to wait it out with everyone else, to see how the last three episodes play out. I don’t wan to spoil it for anyone who intends on watching or who currently is watching, but I can tell you this much: I know who the killer(s) is. I just KNOW it, and thought so from the beginning, so if you wanna compare notes, lemme know.
