I don’t have much to post…but just to update: I didn’t end up going to the Dethklok show. Mick came down with a bug, and I couldn’t find someone to take the tickets, let alone someone to go with me, so I tried to sell them outside the Fillmore The scene was much tamer than it had been on Thursday. Monday is a tough night for a show, and from what I hear, the place was filled with 15 year olds. I actually decided to do a good deed, and because my selling the tickets an hour before the show wasn’t working out for me, I ended up giving them to a couple of kids. Probably 17 years old or so, and didn’t have any money. Someone should enjoy the show, and I’m sure it made their evening. I also heard that there wasn’t a poster, so that made me feel a bit better about not being there.
The whole reason for me putting up this entry is for this:
Talia posted some pictures today. I didn’t even know she had taken this.
Seriously… could my dog be any cuter?
Brody’s birthday turned out to be a smashing success. All of his guests enjoyed their cake (i actually dont think i saw any of them chew it) and he got some great presents. A few tennis balls, a squeaky cake and a pigs ear to name a few. The one I was most looking forward to him enjoying was his puppy corn (popped corn for dogs), but alas, one of the dogs I live with (Im not going to name names…Cadmium), got to the kernels pre-popping.
He is a man now. 21 years old in dog years…still with so much to learn
- 3 cups flour
- 1 T. baking powder
- 1/2 cup margarine, softened
- 6 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup corn oil
- 2 jars strained chicken baby food
- 2 cups finely shredded carrots
- plain or vanilla yogurt
- 2 or 3 strips of bacon, fried crisp, then crumbled, or use bacon-flavored jerky strips, cut into bits.
Generously grease and flour two 8″ round cake pans; set aside. Combine flour and baking powder; set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat softened margerine until smooth. Add eggs and corn oil; mix well. Add strained chiicken, and shredded carrots and mix until smooth. Add flour mixture and mix thoroughly. Pour batter into the 2 prepared 8″ cake pans. Bake at 325° for 60 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before removing from pans. Cool completely on wire racks.
Place one layer on a serving plate and spread yogurt over top. Place second layer on top, then spread yogurt on top and sides of entire cake. Sprinkle crumbled bacon or bits of jerky strips over top.
Use “Pupperoni” sticks instead of candles.
Ill tell you how it went tomorrow. Pictures to follow of course.
but apparently my dog is in a band.
