There is something about starting a new work week after Christmastime, and hating my job, and feeling like I'm going to freeze to death due to winter that makes me 100% preoccupied with eating donuts. I think about them all the time.

To be clear, so you don't judge me, I don't actually eat them constantly. I just think about them constantly. Annie's Donuts, Coco Donuts, maple bars, buttermilk bars, cake donuts, etcetera etcetera etcetera. They're just so soft. And sugary. And joyful.

Today at work I kept telling one of my coworkers that we should go get donuts. Over and over. And she kept on laughing like I was kidding. Kidding! About donuts!

So, after getting one too many travel requests and getting bossed around by too many people that aren't actually my manager, I had to take matters into my own hands. Due to the near-death winter conditions here (which really means temperatures in the 30s, but I'm so weak!), I had to go to Fred Meyer's a block away instead of the legit donut shop four blocks away. And I bought two donuts. And to be honest, they were really dry and Fred Meyer-y and not soft and magical. But I walked around the block and ate both of them so no one at work would judge me. And then I  marched back into that bloody office and owned the rest of the day.

I should go get more donuts right now. I'll take one dozen! To stay!

Update: I was just browsing my iPhoto pics trying to find a new Facebook cover photo (important work!), and I came across this picture. I had to post it. Look at those beauties!

I don't normally care that much for donuts. I sometimes forget that they exist but every once in a while, I suddenly want them. Paul went to get a haircut last Saturday (when it was like 2 degrees) and came back with a box of donuts. Out of the blue. It was kinda magical :)

I didn't know or remember that you like donuts so much! Yum! Donuts!

Dang you, woman! I tried to resist but even your description of the dry donuts made me need to have one. In related news, Provo Bakery has been slightly remodeled - a nice seating area, you pick out your own donuts, etc.

I feel this way about chocolate chip cookies. Except if my cookies had been gross I probably would have cried... while eating them.

You're back to blogging! Yay! I was just about to text you and say that you'd better be writing a novel or something because your writing is to good to be wasted.

And Kim, I can't wait to check out the Provo Bakery upgrades the next time we're in town.
