Don’tcha wish your roommate was fun like me?

Pin It!

(The title of the Pussycat Dolls’ newest single)

What can you do to lift the spirits of a friend who’s having a bad day? Offer a hug? Words of encouragement? A greeting card, perhaps?

How about a personalized cupcake?

After I made Halloween cupcakes (yeah, you’ll be seeing those on the blog shortly), I froze a few for a rainy day. So, to cheer up my roommate last week, I defrosted one of the cupcakes, decorated it, and left it on the kitchen counter for dear roommie to find.

True, a cupcake can’t magically erase the world’s problems. But it sure does wonders for brightening one’s day.

As for greeting cards? They’re so last year!

And now for a new blog feature:

Chocolate-Covered Words of the Day
Today’s tidbits:

1. Seems I’ve been tagged quite a few times. Hmmm, better get around to that!

2. I thought I’d update y’all on “Whole-Foods Boy” (what I shall refer to him as, from now on). Yes, he did call. We’re meeting for coffee later this week. Seems we have a lot in common (including political views, which is always nice). Honestly, I’m not really looking for a boyfriend right now, as I’ve been enjoying my new-found “singleness” these past few months. But it’s always nice to have another friend!
