Okay, you have all been wonderful about the Random Finds of AWESOME segment I did earlier this week. In fact, you'v been so wonderful that I'd dare say you've been... AWESOME! Honestly, I've been inundated with new items from people sending me emails after finding some of the coolest stuff online. I have fodder for DAYS, people! I did want to mention one in particular though because it was on our cupcake theme. A friend and colleague, Sonya, sent me this link for Bella Cupcake Couture:
And you have just got to check this out. Now, ostensibly these are little Victorian wallpaper patterned cupcake cups, but the site goes on to mention an interesting feature. They don't have the wrinkles that characterize other cupcake and muffin cups... and I have a few things to say about that! (Yes, I know. You're shocked. Suck it up.)
At what point did we become so self-conscious about wrinkles that we became phobic about the wrinkles on something other than ourselves? I mean, I'm really getting the idea that that's what bothered the developer of this product... a lot! Not that there's anything wrong with this product.... I'm having a hard time not ordering some myself because they're cute as hell and they're for CUPCAKES!!! That aside though, I have to say that it's never occurred to me that there was anything unsightly about the folds in cupcake cups...frankly, I'm more concerned about whether or not they take off hunks of my cupcake when I pull them off than anything else. Because I'm not ABOUT to lose a hunk of MY cupcake, thankyouverymuch! I'm willing to sit there and gnaw on that cupcake cup until I'm pretty sure I have all of it off. I am NOT above this! THIS IS A CUPCAKE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT!!...Hmmm, I seem to have gotten off topic there for a moment. I'm ummm... alright again. Now then, where was I?
Oh yes, wrinkles on cupcake cups. Now, while I admit these things are pretty, I'm still having a hard time figuring out what was wrong with the regular cups. I suppose, though, that I should be glad that there are people out there who see things like this and then decide they can be made better and more wrinkle free. So I'd like to take a moment to thank whoever decided to make the following products wrinkle free for the first time:
Wrinkle free bras (Can you imagine what the others must have been like?)
Wrinkle free wrinkle cream jars (Just... yeah.)
Wrinkle free computer screens (I shudder just to think of all the guys out there watching porn on wrinkly screens! *cue "The Internet is for Porn" from Avenue Q... google it people!*)
Wrinkle free mirrors (Yeah, I don't need what I'm looking into giving me any more wrinkles than I've already got.)
Wrinke free donuts (Okay, that one's a stretch. I'd eat those with wrinkles too.)
BUT, as you can clearly see, this developer is continuing down a path broken for her by great developers of ages past. Wrinkle free is the way to go, and we poor fools don't even realize it! I mean what's next? You know, now that I think about it. I should get some of these just to test them out. I could make cupcakes!
At this point, dear readers and loyal subjects, everyone who actually knows me is howling with laughter. We will pause for a moment while they regain control of themselves.... Is everyone better?... Not yet?... Now?... Good. So it's a well know fact that I don't cook, but that's a story for another day. In the meantime, someone pass me a cupcake... wrinkle free.
Pssst! P.S. I'll be away at Family Fun Friday with the whole family tomorrow until late. So it may be later than usual when I post. I'm sure it will be worth it if only to hear about the chaos that's likely to ensue! In the meantime, I've left you a thought for the day in case you need additional amusement. This cat is my hero. (Ignore that cats apparently can't spell meditate. I figure just learning to type is good enough.)
