Maybe I have insomnia?
Maybe I napped too much today?
If I wasn't so dragged out, I'd have spent time writing a haiku about that. Okay, I'll try...
Quiet night others sleep
Lonely Baglady blogging
Okay, now that came out wrong, because I've only had a Tylenol P.M. twice, but I probably sound like someone addicted to soft-core sleeping pills :P.
Going to make an attempt to go to bed now!
No, it's the chocolate lava cake that I baked tonight. I did something really crazy. I put in the cake right after realizing I needed it first for dinner. Cooking fish in the oven at the same time as baked goods is a BAD idea, as the milder thing can take on the stronger's odor. I covered the salmon tightly and the cake was covered tightly in it's water bath. Miraculously both turned out great.

After the last batch came out of the oven, I found a possum in a tree near my front door. I tried to scare it away, but it was quite content to stay put - despite me yelling menacing things like "shoe!" (or is that "shew!" or "shoo") and swatting the tree with a broom. Now I know what that sound out my window has been and whose been leaving all those half-eaten berries on my doorstep. I don't like possums. They look like big rats.

Mark Bittman's variation of pound cake
Cook's Illustrated's variation of their master muffin recipe
or just Lemon Duncan Hines cake mix with poppyseeds added.
I have these cool mini-bundt pans that I can't wait to use.
