I'm all featured and stuff.† Garden Planters-dot-com likes my tomatoes almost as much as I do.
Though I'm pretty sure it was the cucumber-as-John-Holmes reference that drew them in.‡
[SUMMARY: Gardeners are a saucy bunch.]
Meanwhile, a kitcen appliance tragedy§ has stalled my cupcake quest: the dough hook of my Kitchen Aid mixer is somehow jammed on the thing.¶ It won't push up, so I can't get the little knobby thing to travel the little groovy thing to take the dough hook off.
I was in full panic mode last night.
Having accepted a lost day of baking,# I'm a little more zen today.
[SUMMARY: All things are relative. Zen doubly so.††]
Do they have mixer repairmen?‡‡
†FOOTNOTE (crossed): Apparently, I'm influential.
‡FOOTNOTE (double-crossed): The Google tracks of the wily gardener... it's all part of the circle of life.
§FOOTNOTE (swerved): I was distraught, in any case. Most of the world remained largely untouched by this turn of events. I believe Guy suggested, to my frantic Facebook post, "bigger hammer."
¶FOOTNOTE (paragraphed): The spring moves fine, I soaked the thing in hot water and ammonia, there's nothing visible wrong with it. It just won't budge.
#FOOTNOTE (pounded): And more than once contemplated whether cupcakes can be made either with a dough hook or in the fancy new food processor.
††FOOTNOTE (ddouble-ccrossed): Apologies to Douglas Adams.
‡‡FOOTNOTE (doubble-crossssed): And do they look like Gustavo Dudamel?
