Today was not an entirely bad day. Things picked up around lunchtime. Here's why:
I decided my cubical was lacking a serious amount of cake-related items. There was not enough of a cake situation surrounding me. I needed a circumstance in which cake was a prominent player.
Luckily, I had the means and the wherewithal to rectify this sad misfortune.
Off to the cafeteria.
And then. THEN the absolute bliss resulting from the purchase of a giant chocolate marshmallow s'more score bar cake square.
Officially one of the best decisions I have ever made.
I mean, it was surely at least 3,463 calories of pure sugar and lard, and it definitely sat in my stomach like a brick for a couple of hours afterward, but this was by far the most wonderful thing that has happened to me at work in at least 3 months. Maybe even better than the boardroom wine and cheese party.
The high that followed this massive caloric intake was entirely well-received and really quite exciting.
From there, I was motivated to wish my friend and coworker a happy birthday by creating a sexy French character (Jean-Francois-Pierre-Luc) and then drawing his face on a balloon - complete with notes of admiration en français. Unfortunately, Jean-Francois-Pierre-Luc's girlfriend (Miss Babette) was not pleased, and expressed her distaste via pink balloon a couple of hours later.
This little rouse paid off, as I later received a slice of homemade chocolate banana bread as a thank you.
The musical icing atop an already great cake day was the soft-rock radio station that played Faith by George Michael,to which I fully rocked out during my drive home.
