Life boils down to two things: Communication and exfoliation. 1)Talk openly and honestly with those you love (and those you don’t). 2)Use a moisturizer with Alpha Hydroxy acid.

HOW TO make lemonade when life hands you lemons.
Step 1: put the lemons in the freezer
Step 2: freeze lemons until they are hard, like rocks
Step 3: Throw lemons in projectile manner at every jerkoff who made your life lemony in the first place.
Step 4: Okay, so you don’t really have any lemonade now, but you’ll feel a helluva lot better than you did before.
The End.
You’re Welcome.

How to frost a perfect cake:
1. Make a perfect cake. (If you like chocolate, use the foolproof recipe on the back of the Hershey’s cocoa powder box, which I’ve been using since I was in middle school.)
2. Make some perfect frosting. (Soften half a stick of butter. Cream it with a fork. Cream into it about 2 cups powdered sugar. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and some lemon zest for a white icing. Or add 1/4 cup cocoa powder and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla for chocolate icing. You will need a few tablespoons of milk to get the consistency right, depending on the dryness of your sugar. Add milk 1 teaspoon at a time. If you need more icing, add sugar in 1/4 cup increments with a bit of milk, until you have the quantity you need.)
3. Put a thin CRUMB COAT over the whole cake. This means you use a thin, smoothish layer of icing over the cake. You can still see cake through this thin layer, but it basically glues in all the crumbs (essential if you want chocolate cake with white icing).
4. Chill the cake to set the crumb coat (1/2 hour in fridge).
5. Swirl, spread, or otherwise put on the decorative layer of icing. VOILA! NO crumbs showing on the top of your cake.
6. EAT.

I was actually going to write about this subject matter today and this PROMPT gave me the style in which to deliver it. My step-by-step instructions on HOW TO HAVE AN EPIC MELTDOWN AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, HOW TO RECOVER is up and running on my blog. xo

My best party pick-up/flirt line, ever: This is said quietly near his ear, so no one else can hear. “I find you remarkably attractive and I plan to do nothing at all about it.” Then drift straight away and prepare to be trailed the whole night long.
