Cupcakes and Rainbows

Tuesday evening I was having a hard time coming up with something to blog about. I’m sticking with that whole blogging every day thing for as long as I can. I’ve still got a streak going and I just don’t want to break it unless I absolutely have no choice.

So I took to the Twitter, asking if anyone had any ideas for me. T over at No Love for Fatties is actually the only one who responded. Unfortunately, it was after I’d already decided to write up yesterday’s Thank You Notes post.

So I got to thinking about cupcakes and rainbows…

And I’m going to say something that’s likely to make me unpopular. I don’t really like cupcakes all that much.

But, bear in mind, this is coming from the guy that doesn’t like chocolate, either. I really don’t have much of a sweet tooth. That’s what it really boils down to.

I do like cake. The part that irritates me is the icing. And the way they make cupcakes these days, they’re about 82% icing. A cupcake might be the opposite of an iceberg. Most of the mass is on top, while there’s just a little bit of cake under the surface.

I just find that icing is too sweet. Sometimes it hurts my teeth. And then there’s the issue of having facial hair and trying to eat a cupcake. I mustache the question: do you have any idea how difficult it is to clean all that icing out of a mustache? It’s not pleasant.

Those who like icing could argue that the mustache thing then becomes a flavor saver and you can keep on enjoying that sweet taste long after the cupcake is eaten. But… no… it’s just not for me.

Like I said, I like the cake. So I guess I’d be more of a muffin man. A muffin man. A muffin man.

I’ve always been a fan of a good blueberry muffin. Though I don’t think I’ve really strayed too far beyond that particular flavor. Wow… I’m not very good at this, am I?

Rainbows are still cool though. I always like trying to guess if the conditions are just right for a rainbow to appear before I actually see one in the sky, then turning to where my mind knows it should be and seeing it. It’s like winning a bet with myself.

And I like the mnemonic device, ROY G BIV, to help us remember the order of the colors in a rainbow. But… uh… is indigo really a color? Are we just making that up. Someone help me out. It doesn’t fit on the color wheel I made in my painting class during my junior year of high school.

That was a fun class. Man, did I have a crush on our student teacher that semester. I might have asked her to the prom. You know, if I’d been the kind of person who went to prom. Or asked girls on dates. Or talked to women I find attractive in general.

I’m pretty sure I’ve derailed. But there you are, T. Cupcakes. Rainbows. The floor is now open to discussion. Please keep all rebuttals to a limit of five minutes.

  1. YAS! Amazing!!
    Okies, I am a cupcake person! I love cupcakes!! I have hear that if you break the top part off, and flip it upside down, so that it’s like cake/frosting/cake it’s better! Cos then you get a more spread out frosting experience. I LOVE frosting! I legit have a craving to walk myself down to the grocery store right now and just buy a container of frosting. Eat it one spoonful at a time LOL BUT I WILL NOT!!! I’m not shopping again until the 4th and that’s that! But then I’ll get some because my birthday will be shortly after and I wants it. Yes, that s is supposed to be on the end of want.

    I still use that ROY G BIV thing to figure out the rainbow colours. Right on!

    Thanks for brightening my day!

  3. Well… I will admit the title threw me off! However, I love the blog streak. I also think it may just be that we all need take a step back and get to know each other. I’m wondering if we really know some of the details of people’s likes and dislikes. I have talk to you for almost over a year on a weekly, but had no idea about blueberry muffins. I knew about the whole cupcake thing… The cake versus icing debate wasn’t new. The only reason I say that is because I was going to have cupcakes or cake with no icing for your birthday supervision. So now I know it will be a make up supervision with blueberry muffins.

    I guess my real point is let this be a time where we all get to know each other a little deeper with specific details of likes vs dislikes.
