I tried to take a nap, but I was so wired from the chocolate that it was impossible. Damn.
Sister Girl did bring home doughnuts--she said the pastry kids were disappointed with them, because they were expecting them to turn out like Krispy Kremes (and I ask you, really: if Krispy Kremes were that easy to make, would any of us ever leave the house?

I actually like them, but I can see how you'd be disappointed if you were expecting The Doughnuts from Heaven.

From mentalrant: "A new Lord of the Rings community on the block, it's been great so far but we need more people! lotr_happy--because everyone knows LOTR = happiness."
From Michael: "Here's the link I'd like pimped: it's for a free biography of the late Pope. It requires an email address and a physical address (to ship the book to). Thanks!"
I feel like I've forgotten someone's request--let me know if you left me one and I forgot to post it.

I am not terribly impressed with the numbers they came up with, let me tell you what.
