Fail Blog Success

Tori found a funny idea for a cake on Fail Blog and she attempted to recreate it for Kenny's Birthday on Saturday. I think her version was a success, don't you think? It was a Sherry Cake with chocolate frosting.

Since Kenny was competing in his first Roller Derby match on his birthday, Tori and I took the cake with us to give him after the match at Skateworld San Diego. For the Halloween-themed Monster Smash event, the teams dressed up as Monsters vs Zombies. Kenny skated well, scoring during his turn as the Jammer but he also made several trips to the penalty box.

After eating burgers at Boomerangs, Tori presented her naughty cake and Kenny loved it. The small amount of cream sherry in the cake made it nice and moist.

Noah vs the Shower Curtain

Yesterday, I fainted for the first time in my life. After a trip to the bathroom in the middle of the night, I grew extremely lightheaded walking back to the bedroom. I had to grip the walls as I made my way forward before unexpectedly smacking my forehead into the door. Holding on to the handle with both hands, I tried to keep my balance as I wondered how I ever was going to open it. The next thing I remember is Tori's worried voice breaking into my consciousness as I sat crumpled on the floor. She asked if I was okay since my skin was cold and clammy. My senses were returning but I felt extremely weak as I crawled on my hands and knees to the bed. Laying on my back, I would have been more worried but I felt the strength returning to my trembling body as the lightheadedness faded rapidly.

In the morning, I felt perfectly fine except for a bruise on my right hip, but I was surprised to see the shower curtain ripped off many of its rings. I must have fallen into it as I went to the ground or grabbed at it to save myself. Either way, I think it protected me from a much harder fall.
