@athenahm Or not. Don't get me wrong, I love the Pintester but I don't display my own sh*tty crafts let alone those someone else conjured up. But perhaps you are a more gentle and forgiving soul than I. Someone has to be the balance for cynics such as myself.

I expected so much worse from you. Oh the disappointment when I see that Calvin is actually not a vomit-worthy little troll of a sock creature. Nicely done, master of the permanent finger button, nicely done.
@CrystalKYuhhyzaguirre @Truffles8761 lol! Sorry to disappoint, but I can always use a grinchy drinking buddy.

I know I'll probably be stoned for this (and not the good kind either), but I cannot wait until all of the "Christmas Cheer" is over. I'm taking my little stack of books, my booze, and my cat and I'm headed for the basement until January.
So was this a half fail? What final consistency did you have?

I'm so filled with pride for your craft accomplishment that I may have shed a tear. It was either that or post nasal drip. I can't be sure. I will toast your triumph with a cocktail. To be fair, I would have toasted your failure with a cocktail as well, but this is even better.

@Ethne Hedren Denham This is from Tootsie.com: Created in 1925, the portable caramel lollipop was originally called the PapaSucker, later changing its name in 1932 to suggest “a wealth ofsweetness”--hence, Sugar Daddy.

Glorious. I once made caramel on the stove top and had that crap cemented to the sauce pan. After removing the bulk of the caramel, I filled the pan with water and boiled it. The stuff came unglued with no trouble and I just spooned it out. Just wondering, did you spray your pan with cooking spray or prepare it in any way?
I love your background music...kind of a jazzy game show theme. I thought when you held up your hand at the end and said "Merry Christmas" that you were going to lower all but the middle finger. Maybe for the next cocknails....

Ah, another satisfied customer. Congratulations, Pintester, on your brand new bouncing baby troll. Mazel Tov!

You're brave to even post this one. It looks a bit train-wreckish and somewhat vomitty. But I really have to give you mad props for "balls". BTW, I love Kraft Mac & Cheese. Does that make me a bad person?

It's my pleasure to read your blog. And I, too, am sorely disappointed by your successful Thanksgiving chow. I must now consider the possibility that I have surpassed the master at abject failure. Curses!

"The last eighth I’ll let you guess about." Challenge accepted. I'd put money on a frisky husband.
As for the bun, at least you have thick enough hair to attempt one. My hair is so fine, I can't even make a respectable ponytail.

I know exactly what you mean. I have also been experimenting with alcohol I have around to come up with a cocktail I can sip while exploring the meaning of life. I mixed a shot of kahlua gingerbread, the juice of one orange, a maraschino cherry and a tsp. of the juice from the maraschino jar. I topped it off with some diet ginger-ale, garnished with an orange slice and added ice. Damned if that wasn't one fine libation for the contemplation of existential matters (and the viewing of a truly craptastic horror movie).

@aMUSEme8 It's similar to the British using the term "Hoover" and "hoovering" for vacuum and vacuuming.

I just can't work up any sympathy for these angsty pre-teens. Back in the day (after I walked to school 50 miles in the snow) I'd get my ass kicked, my lunch money stolen, and my clothes ridiculed all before lunch. If I was lucky I would get to the bus to go home with one more ass kicking and a tiny allotment of dignity.

Is it chocolate? Good enough.

Thanks for sharing (and even over-sharing). I particularly enjoyed your dog trolling for kibble.

m_pinning - I like the cut of your jib and the ingredients in your cake. In fact, I may make one this very moment. Here's to our cakes and bakers with similar styles.
