Ahh, the Page-A-Day Calendar. A time honored part of the Cubicle Monkey's arsenal. Each and every December, countless hoards of office workers go to their nearest Barnes & Noble and pick out a Page-A-Day that they think won't bore them in 365 days.
In my few years of office work, I have had some hit and some misses.
Hit: Far Side
Miss: Procrastinators Calendar (far too wordy)
Miss: 365 Jokes (Turns out, weren't very funny)
Sadly, I think I am in another miss year. A co-worker bought me a Cupcake-A-Day Calendar for Christmas this year because of my penchant for baking. I love it. And I swore to myself I would never jump ahead.
The recipes started out for delicious cupcakes such as Chocolate Mud and Cinnamon Apple. They made my mouth water everyday when I tore off the previous day.
But now, I think the authors may be running out of ideas. Case in point: Peach and Tomato Muffins with Lime.
Oh dear lord. That is not a happy flavor if I ever read about one. I am sure it was just put in there to test the person who swore to make every flavor just to see if they had the balls to do it. Well, I am not that kind of person so I am going to refrain from making such a horrible concoction.
Unless my co-workers make me mad. Then perhaps they will be my revenge cupcake and I will be the one doing the messing....
