Happy New Year and Thank you kindly

Paperwork

Thank you… Thank you all very much for your love and support through out the year.

It’s fascinating to look back and see where you’ve been and what you’ve accomplished. It’s more important to look to the future with excitement and passion to see where you’re going and where you want to be. I’m not a big believer in looking back. I’m a full speed ahead kinda guy. Maybe not full speed but definitely in the fast lane with the radio blasting and windows down enjoying the ride. Don’t worry I’m not cruising in the passing lane, I’m not that big of an asshole.

As I look forward I think of all the paperwork laying on my desk, recipes I’m dying to try out, magic spells to mix up, people to offend, neighbors to piss off and DIY projects that I like to think I’m capable of. There has to be something I can do with all those empty face cream bottles, right? Though I look forward to harassing people I am also looking forward to working on myself. A spiritual journey if you will. I have come a long way on my journey of self. This year I would like to work on:

-Forgiving those that love red velvet.

-To the girl who held up a line of people because she was walking down the middle of the subway steps reading her Kindle. If I find you, I will apologize for threatening to push you down the stairs. I won’t mean it but it will be a nice gesture on my behalf.

-My job……if you only knew….If I told you, you wouldn’t believe me. I’ve witnessed it and I still don’t believe it.

-Sleeping less… I have three alarm clocks that go off starting at 9:30am and I get up around noon. This has to stop.

-Stop the distractions….I’m distracted easily and it’s really messing things up for me and those around me. If you saw how I drive you’d wonder how I haven’t killed someone or myself.

-Ignoring my neighbor. The guys a dick. I don’t know how else to put it. He’s the guy you get the asshole vibe from and its spot on. He’s the guy you have to avoid at all cost because like my best friend Brandi told me, “You can’t reason with crazy.”

My biggest fear in life is that I won’t get to accomplish everything I would like to see and do. I can only set out and do what I do and pray for the best. I’ve turned my fear into faith and follow my heart. Whatever will be will be and I’m cool with it. Now if only people like that bitch on the stairs didn’t slow me down! Baby steps….I’ll get there.

If you’re a dedicated follower, I am extremely flattered by your ongoing support and I thank you. If you’ve stumbled upon here as a random straggler, I hope I’ve entertained you and you enjoyed. If you’re a straight up stalker. I’m a bit turned on and I thank you. You make me feel wanted. No matter who you are I wish you the best there is as you dream amongst the stars and I hope you continue to follow me on this journey of life and discovery. I promise many more recipes, projects and embarrassing stories about myself. So stay tuned!

Here’s to many more wonderful things to come in 2015!

See you next week,
Gus

Again, I have no idea who said this but it’s true. So there. Whoever did say it, is brilliant.

Everything has to be written down or I will forget. God help me when I’m old.

A drawing of a plated dessert called “Milk & Toast & Honey”. I did it on a larger scale as a cake and it was a big hit.
