Life in NOLA
Cakes have gotten a bad rap. People equate virtue with turning down dessert. There is always one person at the table who holds up her hand when I serve the cake. No, really, I couldn’t she says, and then gives her flat stomach a conspiratorial little pat. Everyone who is pressing a fork into that first tender layer looks at the person who declined the plate, and they all think, That person is better than I am. That person has discipline. But that isn’t a person with discipline; that is a person who has completely lost touch with joy. A slice of cake never made anybody fat. You don’t eat the whole cake. You don’t eat a cake every day of your life. You take the cake when it is offered because the cake is delicious. You have a slice of cake and what it reminds you of is someplace that’s safe, uncomplicated, without stress. A cake is a party, a birthday, a wedding. A cake is what’s served on the happiest days of your life. This is a story of how my life was saved by cake, so, of course, if sides are to be taken, I will always take the side of cake.

I love cake so much that I decided to dedicate a post to it. Cake is the best. Cake is always there. Cake is good for the soul.

Had to take Rosie to the doctor. She popped a spoke at mile 35. But she hung in there for the full 40. She’s a trooper.

Read this now. Scathing article about Dave Brandon’s horrible handling of Michigan Football student tickets.  Money quote:

“We know who our competitor is,” Brandon often says.  “Your 60-inch, high-definition TV.”

Dave Brandon lives in a world where college students are sitting in their dorms watching Michigan play Appalachian State on a 60-inch, high-definition TV.
