Last night I watched a special called Outrageous Wedding Cakes. "Outrageous" doesn't begin to describe it. One cake weighed 820 pounds, served over 10,000 and was covered with Svarovski crystals! Another was a life-size, freestanding replica of the bride's wedding gown. Maybe I'm just an old fart, but I can't think of a bigger waste of money (or Svarovski crystals that would make better earrings). I'm willing to bet that first bride did NOT have ten thousand guests at her wedding -- even movie stars and royalty don't. What these cakes cost would be a down payment on a house, or a nice start on future kids' college funds. And even if you already have a house and don't intend to have kids, how about a prolonged vacation in Europe or Tahiti? Or (dare I say it) giving some to charity? You can get a gorgeous wedding cake for a tiny fraction of what these monstrosities cost. Okay, off my soapbox now.
It has turned HOT here -- almost triple digits. By bedtime my hair is dripping with sweat. I've never been much of a heat fan, so OF COURSE I live in California.
Debating what to make for dinner tonight. Meat loaf is leading right now, but we'll see.
Three days to vacation...
