It's good to know that in today's society where every one seems to ignore those they don't know even when those people are in obvious trouble, that there are still some people who are willing to help.
Today while we were at a diner waiting for our food to show up, one of the waitresses carrying a tray of food to people a few tables down from us, tripped and fell, landing against the back door of the diner and landing half out of the door. the man siting in the booth right behind us jumped up, almost before any of the other diner employees could come over to help and started helping the waitress sit up and recover. it made me feel good to know that someone still has the belief of helping those in need.
*sniggers* in my last journal I mentioned that I was copying the photo archives from my mothers computer to mine. As zakai_
said in my comments "watching files transfer is like watching paint dry, only slightly more entertaining". I'm still getting giggles off of that one. so, those photos, that all I wanted was a copy of the ones taken of the cake I made for the party *rolls eyes* it took over 4 hours for them to finish transferring, and I finally was able to post them on devart, and now that I have time to sit here and actually type more than "oh lookie, photos" I can post them here...if I can figure out how to do that....too many little can dos to figure out, took me forever to figure out how to add Zakais thingy up there, and when you think about it, it's almost glaringly obvious which button to use...
on the front you can see, well, everything *grins* I think I was too high off all the sugar from the icing, I had to mix at least 2 different batches of the green icing...you can't really see in this photo, but I was having alot of trouble getting the color to mix thoroughly, so here and there will be patches of stars that have a dark greenish blue color on the one side, while in others there's a creamish white color to some stars.
the castle and all it's little accessories were a toy set that my sister in law had gotten for he daughter, but decided that they'd gotten too many gifts for her, so we decided to use it for the cake, that worked, since we hadn't come up with any ideas till then. other than pointing out that the swan on the pond is supposed to be writing out the words, I don't feel much like explaining the whole thing again, so I'll let you investigate the picture and see if you can find all the little secret things hidden on and in the castle.
this would be the back of the cake, obviously. you can see some of the stuff you could see from the front, and some not, some you can see from both sides but you don't notice. have fun trying to find everything.
I realized about 10 seconds after I first posted this that it's now technically my nieces acctual birthday. hopefully she'll remember her promise to not be a brat like she's started being ever since her party and we'll get to go do something special. *laughs* my sister in law was talking about the fact that she'd like to take her to Chuck E. Chesse for lunch, and then realized as she was saying it that I had class from 10 till 2:30 *shrug* I'm not sure why, but she had in her head that I should have off for my nieces birthday, I told her not to put the idea in my head.
