Of what sort of cake sillymagpie wants for her birthday. Of course, we're taking her out to dinner, where no doubt we will be ordering the deep dish cherry or apple pie, so maybe there will be no cake. However, it doesn't seem quite birthday-ish without a cake of some kind. Birthday pie is lovely, but it's just not the same.

Today was lovely. I slept in, although the cats really didn't seem to want me to sleep at all. We had to allow Sam access to the house again due to yet another thunderstorm - and the heaviest rain we've seen in this part of the valley in some while. Wow, three days in a row. That hasn't happened here since... the eighties? (Okay, it hasn't been that long, it just feels like it.)

I finished all three of the reviews I knew I had to do, and discovered there's one other I should also do, since the release date is August 1 (since I'm going to be gone all next week I'm basically doing two weeks' worth of reviews this week). Of course, if I had remembered the Johnny Cash DVD back when it was actually released, I would have only had Dave Insley and Reckless Kelly to do for next week - and, oh yeah, Kasey Jones, too. Why must all Americana artists release their albums at the same time? Fortunately, Wayne Hancock isn't up until October. I also should have done an article this week, but man! So that'll wait until I get back, since the topic I had been thinking of was reviewing Dave's CD release party at the Yucca Tap Room on August 5. (Which is the day I get home - I think I'll get in from the airport and take a nap before heading over to the Tap Room.) At least it told me I could get three reviews done in one day, provided I had the day off (because writing the reviews themselves doesn't take that much time themselves, it's all the puttering around I do while writing reviews... listening to the song one more time, finding bio information on the web, blah blah blah).

Buy Dave Insley's new CD, Here With You Tonight, on sale August 8! [/subliminal message]

I'm downloading a bunch of Doctor Three episodes. We need to figure out how to use the DVD burner on rahirah's machine. I haven't a clue of how to convert .avi files for burning. Of course, I have realized lately my computer is in DESPERATE need of a RAM upgrade, since I run out of virtual memory whenever I use Photoshop anymore. Maybe with my own birthday coming up I can ask for RAM and my own DVD burner... (of course, I've already asked for a new crock pot - and I've specified the expensive ones, I'm so picky - and TIVO, so...).

I'd speculate on the need for cake and cake flavors, but I'm so very very tired even though I slept fairly well last night. Despite being smacked in the early hours by an evil cat who was watching the storm out the window and didn't like my foot being in "his" space on the bed. And getting up for indigestion. That's doing well for me lately... Another night of bringing work home and ignoring it. ZZZzzzzzz....

So where are those pictures of rahirah in her WriterCon dress?

Hopefully said speculation will leave enough time for grocery shopping, if needed. *g*

I was also walked on my cats at all hours, and there was dog jingling as well as thunder. I tried to sleep, I really did.

Check out writercon for pics. I only saw a few, but I think she looks quite nice in them (although, like someone ELSE I could mention, she does not think they're good).

I didn't see pictures of Barb. You'll have to point them out when I come over.

I don't think we necessarily need a cake as well as pie. Unless you really want to make one. :-)

Mmmm, do I want to make a cake...?

As I said, friends-locked. We'll have to view them on her computer.

Of course, the pics appear to be friends-locked. Should have checked that first (I was looking at them on Barb's journal, and she of course is a friend).

I have a three word suggestion

Good things, ice cream cakes. Only problem is they're harder to make and keep (especially in our small freezer, since the one on the porch broke down).
