…one day left until my vacation starts! Video shoot number two went off today without a hitch, which was nice. Work presents were distributed and received and no less than three people suggested that I ditch this whole marketing director gig and take up baking cookies for a living. The big crowd pleaser wasn’t even my special chocolate chip cookies, but my oatmeal cranberry white chocolate chip ones. This is most likely because there were fewer of the fancy chocolate chip cookies due to an unfortunate burning incident. I was so excited thinking that Cookie Madness 2005, part one would go more quickly that previous baking marathons due to the fact that I have two ovens. But it turns out that the top oven heats unevenly and unreliably and burns the precious, precious cookies. Oh well.
And tomorrow is supposed to be a half day at work, although I would rate my chances of getting out of the office 1 p.m. as slim to none. That’s ok though. I’ll line up all of the ducks so that my work is covered while I am out, no one gets unfairly burdened, and I don’t have to think about work at all for 10, yes, 10 days.
Then I have to pick up some brown sugar at the grocery store for Cookie Madness, part two, round up a couple of last minute little presents (I could have gone tonight, but I thought I’d give getting home before 9 p.m. one night this week a try), and then it’s laissez les bon temps roulez! Or really, clean the house, bake cookies, wrap presents, bake a cake and make lasagna, but those could be bons temps. Well, except for the cleaning.
