Furlough 1 of 24: Cupcakes and Suggestions

Posted by Amy in General

So here I am on Furlough day one and have decided today is the day I make cupcakes. These aren’t just any cupcakes though. Nope, I making SPRINKLES cupcakes thanks to a mix I picked up at Williams and Sonoma (I splurged on the mix with my last full paycheck)…it even comes with the famous dots for the top. Of course, never having had a Sprinkles cupcake (if I weren’t getting a pay cut I might even consider going up to Palo Alto just to try some because I LOVE CUPCAKES) I won’t really have anything to compare it to.  We will see how they actually come out though because I suck at icing things.  I love baking- but suck at icing- I am just not patient enough I think.  Of course I will document the process with my camera and let you know how that goes!

I am still at a loss as to what to do with myself during my furlough days right now. My schedule isn’t regular enough to be able to get a regular part-time job.  I have all these ideas…I just wish I could figure out how to funnel them into actual funds coming my way. For instance:

1. Over the past year I wrote a book. I know! It was an accident! But indeed I have it. It’s in infancy….I would say in draft 1.5 maybe. But it’s a full on book. (All I will tell you right now is that it’s fiction and I am already formulating an idea for a second book). Don’t ask to read it but like I said…right now it’s in infancy and not ready to be read.

2. BFFM and I came up with a great idea for a clothing line…seriously! We even drew up prototypes of shirts and off-shoot products…(well she did the drawing since I can’t draw).  Of course we have this idea…and nothing to do with it.

Maybe I should just try to do new things during my furlough days. Have any suggestions? (remember that they shouldn’t be expensive- I am losing 10 percent of my salary afterall. Oh and  crazy-ass things like bungee jumping, parachuting, etc that might make me throw up or cry might not be too fun). As always leave em in the comment section.
