Dispatches from the City of Angels
I'm a writer and humorist living in and writing about Los Angeles. You can catch my novel LOSING CLEMENTINE out March 6 from William Morrow. In the meantime, feel free to poke around. Over at my website you can find even more blog entries than I could fit here, as well as a few other ramblings. Enjoy and come back often.

My husband is an awesome baker, kind of pro-am. But I was feeling pretty "meh" about a birthday cake for my upcoming day o' birth. I could get behind the candles and the wishing and a piece of cake, but then you just have this sad, half-eaten thing around the house for the next week and a half slowly drying out and/or growing mold until someone finally throws it away.
Then I saw THIS.
It was undignified.
BUT OMG IT'S A GIANT SNOWBALL CAKE SOMEBODY HOLD ME. I haven't had a Snowball since I was 10. My grandmother would buy them for me. No one else would. I don't know why, but it was probably related to my mother's no-carnival-rides-rule somehow. Most things were. (Mom never trusted carnies.)
So it turns out, it's the dinner I don't care about on my birthday. I just want martinis and cake. SNOWBALL CAKE. YES.
Technical note: This post is only available here (not on my website) for the time being because the website is undergoing some behind the scenes maintenance that, let's face it, I don't really understand.
