Wow, the wind picked up today. I rode my bike downtown after work today to meet up with Angela, and almost got blown off my bike a few times. I hung out by the water taking a bunch of pictures. It was hard, because the wind kept blowing me around, and I couldn't hold still long enough to focus and take a picture. This one took five tries.
The lights have been flickering this evening. I located the lighter and candles just in case, but I think the wind has died down a bit.
Wow, I got a lot done today. I only ended up working an extra half hour, but it felt like longer. I had a bunch of orders going out and had to finish and decorate. Then after that, I needed to fill 400 eclairs. I didn't help that my right thumb is kind of out of commission. I dumbly grabbed the handle of the water bath that was over the back burner flame and basically branded my thumb. Note to self: when a piece of metal is over a flame, it is hot, and you should not grab it. For some reason all my brain was thinking was that the water bath should be over the flame, and not next to it, and I grabbed the thing to move it. Duuh! Not bad though, this is my first burn at Starlight, and this is already my second year here. At this point I already had a dozen burns at Fresh Flours, and god know how many at Three Girls. Most of my Fresh Flours burns were on my arm near my shoulder from walking into hot sheet pans high up on sheet racks. My all time best though was when I tried to pull a pound cake out of an oven without pulling out the rack, and I burned my arm on the bottom rack. My instinct was to pull my arm up away from the hot rack only to whack my arm into the rack above. Up down up down...ow! Ow!Ow!Ow! Oh yeah, pull my arm OUT of the oven! Never again. Now I ALWAYS pull the racks out of the oven rather than stick my arm into the oven...see I learn lots of important things in my day to day life about baking, like shit is hot in a bakery, and can burn you. Kindly I will not post a picture of this burn. Unless you beg me. NO NO NO you don't want to see it.
