Today I was going to do an illustration of a King Cake and say Happy Fat Tuesday! But then I realized that it is in fact Ash Wednesday, and I missed it. So instead I must go get some ashes and think about sins and atonement and what I’m giving up for lent instead of thinking about delicious cakes with plastic babies. Although…do I really need to give anything up? I mean hello, I can’t drink alcohol or too much coffee since I’m pregnant, so I think that is quite enough restriction for right now!
The good news is that it’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow, and I have NOT given up candy this year (I have in years past=misery). I used to like going out on Valentine’s Day when I was single, because you pretty much knew that everyone else was single too. So- will you single girls get out there tomorrow and have a few cocktails for me? I will be watching dvr’ed Top Chef and hopefully eating chocolate from a Duane Reade heart shaped box, living vicariously through you.
