Cake or Death

This week has been one filled with regroups - though, to be honest, I think I've spent more time socializing than regrouping. There is a mountain of things to do at home and a bigger mountain of things I want to do in my head.

I like to put things on paper to hold myself accountable, so today we are going to do something I find super fun. I call it Cake or Death, which really is a weird thing to call a to-do list but bare with me.

Has anyone ever watched Eddie Izzard's comedy? He was in a few movies and tv shows, so his name might sound familiar, but I fell in love with his stand up when I was in high school.

For starters, he is a transvestite. He just likes to dress in drag - so much so that when I first saw him in a movie I didn't realize it was him. One of my favorite sketches comes down to the choice of cake or death. Obviously, everyone will choose cake.

Watching the Lego animation always makes me happy

I'm an obsessive to do list maker. Sometimes I will remake my list five times in one day. So in high school my list would always say "To Do OR ELSE" and one day my friend wrote next to it "cake or death" which through the years morphed into my to do list being entitled cake or death.

If I finish my list, I get cake. If I don't, I get death. You can totally see why it's motivating...

  1. Haha cute! Cake or Death sounds so much better than "Things To Do" ... girl, that is a BIG list! But I'm the same way too, I like to make a list to get the thoughts on paper and hold myself accountable.

  2. Exactly! I know it's a ton of stuff, but I need to put them somewhere. I'm currently organizing them my due date in my google tasks. I'm trying to stick to the list! :)

  3. I love Eddie Izard! You have some big goals, good luck!

  4. This is so fun. And I am pretty sure you forgot that you need to text Paulina more. All week we have only talked before I pass out which I think it quite rude. KIDDING you know I love you. And probably a good percentage as too why you haven't gotten much done all week, but it is a responsibility that I hold proudly.

  5. Haha I've been in a daze! You will get alll the texts lol

  6. Thank you!! I love Eddie Izzard too!!

  7. Editorial calendars save my life on a regular basis! And Wordpress is amazing - you'll be so glad that you switched! I've been working on a few designs for people switching to Wordpress(.org), and I love how flexible it is!

  8. Do you have a great editorial calendar that you use right now? I'm on the look out for another good one!! :)
