Fluffy Strawberry Vanilla Cupcakes
Jon and I live in a slightly strange world. Though, technically speaking, we all live slightly strangely.
How is our world strange? Well, one reason, among many rest assured, is the lack of a few standard American household items/gadgets in our lives. We don’t have a TV, nor a microwave, and lack smart phones.
But this is the story of the one thing I have discovered I cannot live without. The dishwasher. When I first moved in with Jon to our apartment there was no dishwasher and since we are always experimenting in the kitchen there were always lots of dishes. Slowly I started to hate those dishes more and more. It was a never ending pile. My hands would get wrinkly and I was spending over an hour per day at the sink.

Vanilla Almond Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
I met several interesting people this week. This might be due to my living in the mall for three days and a day long visit to my old office. Ok, you got me; I didn’t actually sleep in the mall. But, I did spend an approximate total of 20 hours over the course of those three days lingering in the halls of a strange contrived world full of fluorescent lights. I forgot to add that I was with a nine month old. Lots of fun.
On to the stories these people shared with me. The first has to do with Mario.
