They followed my instructions.....

To the letter. 
Here's a slice of my work life since my let's face it - this week is all about work!  (last day tomorrow). 
My exact instructions were that the going away party was to be casual.
No speeches
No fancy clothes
And above all....NO BIG CAKE WITH MY NAME ON IT.  Since in my mind, the cake EPITOMISES everything I hate about formal parties. 
And then, because I wasn't sure that someone else might convince my manager that she misunderstood and cake was a NECESSARY item, I told everyone else that I could think of that MIGHT have something to do with the planning of this party.  NO BIG CAKE WITH MY NAME ON IT.
And my manager was true to her word.  No big cake. 
Just lots of cupcakes.
With letters that happen to spell my name......


  1. all the carrots need are babies on top and you'd have a perfect CakeWrecks CCC!

    Hope your last week is a good one.

  2. Hee Hee, Sometimes you make it really hard for folks to enjoy a good going away party!

  3. Ok, that totally made me laugh! Heehee!

    If you don't want one of the carrot-cake ones, can you please pass it over here? Looks kinda tasty...

  4. Awww...they still managed to do something nice for you. Very clever. My favorites would be the ones with the carrots on top, of course! :)
