Weekend Wrap-up

What's up good people, This weekend I didn't do much, Me and the baby hit up my jobs halloween party on saturday. It was cool, free food and drinks. we didn't dress up but we saw some "interesting" costumes including some chick covered in newspaper and caution tape talking about she the stock market crash. Yeah ok, I'm a sensitive to all stock market talk. My 401k lost 12% this year. Anyway we also saw a black dude dress up as Zorro, leather pants and all. He was walking around with 2 white girls dressed as pirates. My first thought was pimp but my daughter said he was a black superman. Anyway the baby got her caricature drawn by this dude. We were standing there and I'm watching him draw this mess thinking that it looks nothing like my daughter. All the while people behind me talking about how good he is. Here's the drawing, personally I hate it but I'll hang it up just the same.




I made this Rum cake on sunday. I think I put too much rum in it. It's damn good though, just not sure if the baby can have some.





Oh yeah some of ya'll might have noticed I had a cooking blog on my profile for a little while, It was private because it was under construction, you know I wouldn't block ya'll out like that. I wanted to post it when I had a new episode to put up. So head over to The Cookin With Dave blog to see a new episode. As usual let me know what you think, every episode Joe Producer is adding something new and this is no exception.

Hmmm, I've never gotten drunk off of a rum cake. The baby should be okay. She didn's see that cake and you said No you can't have any, did you? It looks soooo good.

Your job should have advised, family appropriate costumes. Seems like it was a little touch and go in there.

True story: I got DRUNK off of rum cake when I was like 12, lol. My little body was heaving and throwing up something fierce! I guess that's what I get for being greedy!

CocaColaCutie said...

i think the caricature looks like an over exaggeration of the baby, at least they didn't make her look Asian like this one caricature artist did me.
