The power flickered. For like half a nanosecond. And so now I have no internet.

*huff huff pout*

*arms crossed*

*pissed off face*


And all because Rat has some like crazy firewall for our firewall’s firewall or some crap like that. I really don’t care anything about it until it inconveniences me.

So when the power flickers Rat’s pile o’computers in his office go “AHHHHHHHHHH!!!” and I can never remember which computer I’m supposed to reboot and if I reboot the wrong one or push the wrong button on the right one, I’m pretty sure I’ll blow up our house or all the computers at NASA or something will all cut off. Pretty much I’m just terrified of technology. Or blowing up. I’m not sure.

Since I have no internet, I have been forced to entertain myself in ways other than reading y’all’s fabulous blogs. So I’m baking a cake! A sour cream coffee cake, to be more precise. Actually…it doesn’t have any coffee in it, so I get confused whenever I tell people what it is. It’s really yummy. It’s got cinnamon and brown sugar in it. Since our oven has lost it’s freakin’ mind lately, I’m trying making the cake in a different way. Instead of making it in one of those, um, round-type pans with the hole in the middle, I’m making it in two bread-type pans. Hopefully this will work better than when I tried to make one for my friend Super Model and her BF. I cooked it nearly 45 minutes longer than normal and it was still RAW inside. DO NOT WANT.

The cake (or cakes, since I split the batter up) has been in the oven about 30 minutes now. Time to check on it….brb…

Well, it was fine when I left it to go pick up Rat at TaeKwonDo, but when we got back, not so much. One was alright, I’ll just have to peel a corner off, but the other one had to lose it’s whole top layer (it’s got 3). Strangely enough, the rest of the cake is fine. No burns on the bottom or sides at all. Freakin’ possessed oven.

Great. There goes the power again. Super.

I just hollered up to Rat to “Fix the internet” and he just kind of laughed at me. Hey, we don’t call him “The Computer Whisperer” for nothin’!

In other news, IT’S DAMN HOT!!!! I took out the trash today (only because it reaked to high heaven) and I think my hair nearly caught on fire. I think God’s up there with a giant magnifying glass.

**update on the cake** I just snuck a “sample” out of the one that looks like it got gnawed on and it’s yuuuummyyyyy! I’m going to have to use every ounce of my willpower to stay out of it until after dinner.

YAY! Internet! Oh sweet internet! Never leave me again or I just may die of boredom and burnt pastries!

Speaking of burnt pastries……*sneaking back into the kitchen….to…um….to make dinner….I swear!*

nom nom nom….mmmm….cake…..

Oooo…coffee cake…I haven’t had that in a long time. And it’s called coffee cake because you’re suppose to eat it with coffee. Like we have time to wait for the coffee to brew or something…
