This week Electron Deception played at Velour's battle of the bands. The first time we played at Velour they didn't pull out the fog machine for us, so this was definitely a better show than before! pLUS, we've improved a lot and we have some new songs, although I think my outfit may have taken away from my "star" power. I looked like a sister missionary playing a bass guitar: not hot. Our band always has to dress Ryan, our keyboard player, or he'll end up wearing a polo shirt and jeans to our shows. I think they may have to start monitoring me now.

On Saturday G and I ventured out west to the Bonneville Salt Flats. After walking around the flats for a while and doing a photo shoot (G is working on his photography portfolio) we then drove the car out onto the flats and drove fast, for a long time, still never arriving ANYWHERE. That place is the definition of desolate. As the car skimmed across the crusty flats the salt glittered like sparkly diamonds, crushed china, break-away glass shattered on pavement, or the luminescent plankton in the Bellingham Bay (take your pick of metaphors). Then we drove through the small town of Wendover and wondered at the large casinos sticking out like boulders in a flood plain across the landscape. We ended our visit in Nevada/western Utah with tacos at a taco truck stationed next to the road near a Pizza Hut. A Good Day.

We begin this post with a confection given to me by my roommate Chelsea (pictured above "eying" a sucker). I regret to say that I ate the whole cupcake today. I only regret that there are no more, I do not regret that I ate it, it was sooo tasty. They are currently for sale across the street from my house at the Beehive Bazaar. Go get your own!
The second group of confections shown are some suckers that I made, for suckers (actually they're for a class I'm in.) Some of them have hair mixed with colorful nonpareils in them. Some contain advice for women like, don't "lean heavily upon a man's arm" and, do "make tender statements to your children." Some of the suckers have doll parts in them. They were fun to make, and would be disgusting to eat.
The third confection I'm showcasing is only available for a limited time. It is baby Miles. He will not always be a newborn, but isn't he so tasty and sweet looking right now? Oh my Sweetness!

Even though Lucy is constantly getting into EVERYTHING, she is so cute that you can't be angry for very long, even if she loses your cell phone, eats all the fruit snacks or uses up all the hot water playing in the bathroom unsupervised (which she did ALL of those things while I visited.) Thanks again S and T for a lovely visit.
