Pearls of Wisdom

The other night while trying to fall asleep, my sleep aid, the BBC had this 'brain surgeon' on. This expert was on who 'claims' to be a networking expert, you know, like the 'experts' they have on for 3 minutes on The Today Show.

She's blathering on and on about some such nonsense that the corner vagrant could have told you, when see spat out this diamond from her clenched ass.

"...and these steps should lead you to the cream of the crop, or what we call the Marzipan".


I was in complete darkness and I through my hands up as if to say, what?

Marzipan, as far as I know is basically a sculpting almond paste. Some people enjoy it. I worked at this one place where the marzipan was shaped into fruits and vegetables, and they are painted with edible coloring stuffs.

I have never seen a dessert except for maybe a certain petite four or two topped by marzipan? Why not tiara ? Or telephone book on the refrigerator? Or those light bulbs in the ceilings of museums that you wonder how the hell, and who the hell puts those in?

Marzipan? Really?

I picture said authoress sitting in her local Patisserie, daydreaming over her second or third Sancerre that she is going to be the next J.K.Rawling(s?), when she espied a dessert she was craving and viola-marzipan.

Holy Shit.

Marzipan,on desserts (or almond paste) is usually on the bottom, and taking this birds advice, that's where you will end up.
