I wish cupcakes were called tablecakes

Cupcakes are probably my favorite food. That and pizza. I just wish they were bigger! Today I ate 2 free Baked by Melissa cupcakes which are the size of a quarter, but they cost a dollar! Only in New York kids. I could seriously eat a dozen in 5 minutes (which I have done). Thank God somebody else usually pays for them.

I'm trying to be a dedicated Weight Watcher so I ate one pumpkin one and one mint one. So so good even if they are overpriced!

A Kiss is just a Kiss

Unless, of course, it is a Hershey Kiss. Then it is a delicious chocolate. A very simple but very awesome chocolate. And I ate two of them today for free!

While my bounty was sparse today, my weekend was a banquet. I went to Philly for a family birthday party, and I ate lots and lots of free food, though no TastyKakes or pretzels. What's up with that??? Travesty I tell you.

I need to catch up on my beauty sleep now.

Liz Simons is a modern day non-Asian Claudia Kishi

I grew up with the Baby-sitters Club. I always liked Kristy Thomas and Mary Ann Spiers the best because they were nerdy like me. Claudia Kishi and Stacey McGill--who was from NEW YORK--were too cool for school and intimidated me.

Flash forward 20 years and I still think Claud and Stacey are awesome, but I realize I'm more like them than I thought. I live in New York like Stacey (but without permed hair and diabetes).

And I LOVE junk food like Claudia!

While I am a great speller (knock on wood) I actually identify a lot with Claudia. I may not dress as wild as she did, and I don't read Nancy Drew mysteries, but I do keep a stash of candy and sweets at my desk at work. I don't hoard it--that would be gross--but everyone knows to bring me any extra cupcakes or pizza, which happened today! I scored some organic pizza and a Crumbs cupcake . . . so delicious!

Now it's bedtime.
