Cake (no death)


Poll #1380999 Homemade?

If you make a cake from a mix, are you allowed to call it "homemade?"

Sure. You made it at home, didn't you?
8(18.6%)
Um, no. It has to be from scratch to be homemade.

You have to understand, though, that I think perception trumps quality every time. If you called your creation "shit and vomit cake", it would color my perception of the cake, no matter how delicious, and nevermind that it has neither shit nor vomit.

If you slap the label "homemade" on your cake, I wouldn't mind, because I understand that you are trying to positively influence my perception about the cake. Nevermind what reality is.

And, truth be told, I like my perception to be intentionally and positively colored. Life is so much more interesting with positive colored perception.

Really? Then I can describe Q as "an enthusiastic aficionado of my underdeveloped qualities in order to facilitate my personal growth as a human being" and not want to kill him every time he tells me I'm wrong? Wow, that does sound better! Maybe I won't kill him in his sleep after all...
