Spillages weird smells and impending doom

I like Fridays generally - but this morning they have demonstrated they do not like me. I decided to make cookies for Rob for his last day - partially as I thought it would be thoughtful and partially as I am totally broke and can't afford a decent present. Unfortunately when leaving my flat (late) I managed to spill and entire bottle of almond flavouring all over myself. As I am really trying to be on time I couldn't change and I smell like I am made of marzipan.

I hope that I can sneak in without anyone commenting.
Hmmm clearly I am not too bright on a Friday.
"Morning!" I call trying to look innocent and like someone who is not fifteen minutes late.
"I made biscuits" I announce, "For Rob."
Rob and Jamie come over and enthusiastically grab a handful. Ethan looks nervous. "You cooked them yourself Katie?"
"Yes." I say indignantly."I can cook."

Simon smirks, "Didn't you set fire to your kitchen recently?"
"It was just a pan." I say
He laughs, "So you managed without any fires this time."
"Yes." I say "And now you don't get to have a biscuit."
He laughs, "Sorry Kate they look great and I am sure you are a wonderful cook.Can I have one now"
He grabs one and then pretends to choke.
I am beginning to think I shouldn't share my culinary disasters - it may be preventing me from being taking seriously.

"What do they smell of?" Fishy asks suspiciously."
I glare at him - typical he would be the one to notice
I consider lying then decide to front it out "That's me actually." I say with dignity
Fishy gives me a weird look "So any reason why you smell like marzipan?"
"I happen to think Marzipan smells good." I say blushing slightly. Damn this blushing.
Ethan rolls his eyes at me. "You spilt the oil on yourself didn't you?"
"I hate you." I say
"He laughs, "Why didn't you just change?"
I blush
"Ted laughs, "please don;t tell me it was because you didn't want to be late?"
Everyone seems to find this very funny for some reason.

I decide to ignore them - I have more fun things to focus on Rob's leaving do tonight!
Ted has even said we can leave early so the drinking will begin from 4pm. This is good for two reasons first any time off work is always a good thing and second our evil scheme. Simon and I have decided it is payback time for Fishy. Basically the plan is to get him very drunk - steal his phone and delete incriminating videos and hope he makes a fool of himself. Sophisticated it is not but I have high hopes for something incriminating. As soon as he does something stupid I will post it!

  2. Awwww I'm sorry dear that you spilt the almond all over you!! I have a huge burn on my left arm & people are asking me, "Ohh Mel did you burn yourself trying to cook?". They know I've been trying to learn. I feel ya on that!! You should have brought the almond stuff along with you & secretly spilled a lil on everyone so no one would know!! hehe.

    Ohhhh Good luck with Fishy!! Hopefully he will do something stupid!! hehe.

  5. Haha i can always count on you to brighten my day!
    Cant wait to hear about Fishy's hopefully drunken antics, he deserves whats coming to him! Also, I agree with The Invisible Seductress marzipan smells pretty good! Though if you see someone sniffing and licking their lips I would proceed to move swiftly in the opposite direction....

  10. Wait...you smell like marzipan? Can you come and sit on my head for the weekend? I love marzipan.

    On second thoughts, that came out way more raunchy than intended....

  12. You've made me really want some biscuits now! :)

    I made tablet for the people in my office once and everyone looked at it like they thought I'd poisoned it. Then they ate it and realised it was really good - think what they nearly missed out on!!!

  17. Kate, I love the smell of almond flavoring.
    You probably made the whole office smell like a bakery.

  18. Blimey, people like that don't deserve biscuits!!!

    And I actually have an aftershave that smells like marzipan! I really like it!

  19. Yes!!! You are a smart one Kate! A smart, yummy smelling evil genius. I love it!

  20. The chitchat in the office is so... cringe-worthy. How you live with it everyday, I'll never know.

    Michael.
    Do you hate it too?

    Somehow a lot of thoughts come to mind after reading this line...none are non dirty :P

  23. For what it's worth, I love the smell and taste of almond extract- but bathing in it seems a bit severe.. :)

  24. I hope you had a good Friday night!

  25. There are much worse things than marzipan that you could smell like. I hope you not only get to delete the offending videos, but get to record a few incriminating clips of your own.

  26. Didn't Marilyn Monroe dab a little almond oil behind each ear before every photo shoot? Okay maybe it was Chanel no 5. Same difference!

  27. Given the environment you work in, you're lucky nobody licked you. I mean, I guess you're lucky. Maybe you're unlucky. I can't really think of an appropriate to back out of this comment. Good luck to you.

  28. Now this could be interesting!

    Looking forward to seeing how it turned out.

    No doubt though you have got yourself into some embarrassing scrape that will have made you wish that the ground would open up and swallow you whole.

    Well, that's what we are hoping anyway (In a good way of course)

  29. Hi :) Thanks for stopping by my site. I'm now a follower, lovin this blog too by the way.

    Don't worry about what the office people say about your cooking, I am sure it is great - and so what if you burned something or spilled something, I am sure it has happened to some of them too!

  30. :-) Hope you had a great almond-free weekend.

  31. Kate ~ You are so stinking funny!! Watched The Office last night and thought of you.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ah, you'll undoubtedly capture something to post!

    You have a great deal of energy. I'm not sure I could keep pace with your crew.

  33. Sounds like you've got quite a plan. Payback is a biotch!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. It's okay, I always make a mess when I cook.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh, I've done this a dozen or so times at least, Katie. It sucks, but at least the stuff doesn't smell like rotting fish, right?

    I'll bet the biscuits were delicious too. I wish I could've had one.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh good for you! You get him!!!

    Now I'm curious what marzipan smells like?!!!

  38. Nothing wrong with your clothes smelling fishy but when your underwear do that is when there might be a problem

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would really love it if Fishy did something very very stupid and gave you a blog topic...

  40. Can't wait. Your blog is great, I find all your stories super entertaining. The more blogs I follow, the harder it is to keep up with them, but some you just have to know what's going to happen next.

  41. Kate, I am not one to preach but do you really think it's a good idea to go to Rob's leaving do?
    Yeah, so do I actually.
    I look forward to reading about what happened. :-)

  42. I think I heard somewhere that you're not really a chef until you've set fire to your kitchen. ;)

    I've set fire to my kitchen, but I wasn't cooking food. Hmmm....does that count?

  43. I hope you got that Fish guy drunk and then put him in the back of a bin-lorry.

  44. I can't wait for a revenge post. Please take your revenge soon!
