Today’s treat is not a cake… shocker, I know.
Instead I decided to try one of the intriguing Easter-themed treats on offer at the bakery. Behold…
the Spiegelei. Basically, a squished doughnut with the filling on the outside, then topped with an apricot to mimic the look of an egg. Fun!
All the bakeries have some really fun looking treats. I’ve seen cookies shaped like bunnies, and little cakes that look quite similar to Peeps. But every time I’ve passed that bakery on the way home, they’ve been out. So my goal is to get one of those before Easter. I also appreciate that the bakeries are currently selling dyed hard-boiled eggs as well. I guess if you’re feeling too lazy to dye your own, you can just swing by and pick up a couple. Easy-peasy.
In other news: I’m currently having some slight computer issues. Because if it isn’t one damn thing, it’s another. Grumble.
Long story short: When I plug in my laptop, something isn’t connecting so it doesn’t always charge. It works if I jerry-rig it, but unfortunately I can’t do that in a way that is conducive to working on it. It pretty much works in one position so I haven’t been able to do anything particularly useful this week. I’m typing this in a super-awkward position right now. It’s not fun.
I went to two computer stores thus far but they weren’t able to fix it, and so I’m going to another one today. I did fix this same problem while in Prague, and it’s looking like if they can fix it, it will be quite pricey and might take like, two weeks. Considering how reliant I am on my computer for work, being without it that long is really not a choice. So the better choice might be to suck it up and finally buy another one. The sad part is that the hard drive is fine, it’s just the 5+ year-old body that’s been beat to hell. but if it’s going to cost that much to fix, I might just be better off learning to type on a German keyboard. Umlauts for everyone!
