Vegan cakes and cupcake patches

So. Update. Before a month has gone by! Shocker.
The trip to the club? Never happened. My cousin decided she was 'too tired' to go. Lame. I'd have gone myself, but the afrore mentioned flat tire incident prevented that. I didn't think driving an hour on a spare was a great idea. I was pissed too. When she finally decided that no, she wasn't coming, I was already dressed and had my hair and makeup done.
I don't think she understood just what a big deal it was to me, that night out. I actually cried when I hung up the phone. Everything from the week had been building up and building up. I'll go another night though. Now that I know it's there, I'll be visiting. Kat says she'll go with me. I posted some pictures of the makeup, by the way.
The funeral went well. I cried at that too. Which is understandable, but I was actually a little afraid that I wouldn't be able to. I've supressed my emotions for a long time and I thought that maybe it had made he cold. Luckily, I'm not too far gone. The whole thing was a nice bit of closure.
I went up to see Kat yesterday. It's always way too long between visits. Unfortunately, Theresa couldn't come, but we had fun. I got my ears gauged. They're a size 8 right now. In three months I can stretch them up farther. It barely hurt and I think I freaked Kat out a little, not even flinching when the needle went in. They look good though, even if they are small. Rose glass. 'Purpley-pink' is the technical term. Afterwards, we went to Lori's whole food market thingy. I found the Tofutti cheese I've been wanting to try. It's very good and does indeed melt.
We also went to the mall and I bought a few things. I got the most awesome cupcake patch that I'm going to sew onto my bag. Kat invited me to dinner and made a really good vegan friendly spaghetti. It was yummy. And I got to meet her new cat, Pablo. All in all, it was a great day.
I got home and had to bake a cake. My family celebrated my birthday today and I was told if I wanted a vegan cake, I needed to make one myself. So I did. And decorated with the AFI Sing the Sorrow leaves. No one knew what it meant, but it made me happy. And the red gel was sparkly. (Gel is really freakin' hard to draw with.) Again, I posted a picture.
Everyone liked it and it was agreed that they couldn't even tell the difference between that and a cake made with eggs. I rock that way.
So yes. New holes in my head, fun with Kat, a patch, birthday... All kinds of good things. I need to go clean said holes, actually. And maybe chew on something before passing out. Chai sounds good...
