She's late to her own party. Typical. Mods are never around when you need them.

Seriously, though, happy birthday! Enjoy the cake.

Okay everyone, do your best to be cool for the day. 'Cause if you start shit on Jessamyn's birthday, the rest of us reserve the right to come to your house and kick the crap outta you. I call this birthday modding.

She's late to her own party.

ssshhhhhh. She's plumb tuckered out.

Since this was posted on her birthday, but just after midnight Jessamyn time, she's probably not celebrating yet. Everybody sneak in here quietly, and we'll surprise her when she wakes up... ssshhhhhh

Is this why I dreamed about visiting Jessamyn in her house on the other side of the planet last night? And there was snow, even though it's summer where she lives (but a bloody freezing winter here)?

Anyway, happy birthday! If you lived in Australia, you'd be drunk by now!

You know, it kind of was. Thank you everyone for the well-wishes. I spent a little bit of time this morning at work but then spent the rest of it out and about. I had some cake with Fluff frosting, took a walk on the beach during the 20 minutes that it wasn't raining and got some good hang-out time with my fella and some phone time with my family. It was a good day, thank you.

Surfers, sunset

I'm glad to hear today was good! Also: was there anything else in the frosting besides Fluff? I'd be curious to hear more about this cake!
posted by Greg Nog at 8:05 PM on September 5, 2012


It was like buttercream frosting with Fluff flavoring [but they were careful to say Fluff and not just "marshmallow"] and it was pretty solid stuff. Also the cake was HUGE, like tall. Very robust. We could not finish it. Also it cost almost as much as my chicken and biscuits but I am okay with that.

posted by Greg Nog at 8:23 PM on September 5, 2012


Huh. I'd seen a recipe for frosting made with Fluff. But specifically Fluff-flavored?

(Maybe they're gearing up for What The Fluff?)

Happy Birthday jessamyn! (I am late to everything).

At 11, I asked my mother for a stale angel food cake with melted Kraft caramel icing. It was so sticky that it was almost impossible to cut even with a buttered cake knife, and no one else was willing to risk their teeth with more than a single bite, but I loved it.
