Remember Wilson?

Okay...hands up who just loved that movie "Castaway" starring Tom Hanks about the guy who, stranded after a plane smash, befriended a blood stained / face imprinted volley ball (Which he named Wilson) Apparently this is quite a common human response called "Pareidolia". I learnt this after googling "Things that look like stuff". (I love it when you learn something!!!) Check out some of the very weird pictures at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pareidolia
We had a huuugge case of pareidolia here at home this weekend....M decided to cook a cake with Mum, and we were both stunned when the cake come out of the oven....looking amazingly human!! ( I reckon it actually looks like M) We didn't prick it, or shape it in any way at all. M just poured in the batter as usual and out came Cakie. Of course, we couldn't eat Cakie. We all came to love Cakie. He lived in the fridge..hehe.
Can you even imagine the furore on Sunday morning when our resident "okay I'll get myself some breakfast before you all get up" kinda three year old gal was found rocking happily in the rocker, watching Teletubbies with a decimated Cakie on her lap. OOOMMMGGGG.......(don't even say the word crumbs.) Cakie was not so fresh by this stage....even the dog wouldn't partake.
M was good about it. I did acknowledge that being a big brother of twins was not easy. I did agree to cook another cake. I do miss Cakie.... Poor fella. R.I.P.
All the best, and thanks for logging into Sheepychic bloggings. I've been so busy on the yarn front. The whole wall of our lounge room is handdyed rovings ready for spinning. I'll post pictures shortly.
Bye for now, Ruth...xx

Poor Cakie :-( You are very restrained in your household....if I make a cake it barely hits the deck here, T is a bit of a cake monster and has to keep 'sampling' until it's all gone!

Poor Cakie Im so sorry for your loss. Im sorry I had to giggle though especially with the whole three year old getting her own brekkie lol, I can totally relate to that. It is incredible too it does look like M.

Hehe..Mandie..it's ususally the same at our place but M wouldn't let anyone near Cakie. Kathie, I'm giggling with you. P is keeping us all on our toes. She's a good girl but oh-so mischeivous! Her latest is to run through the room, turn off the telly then run like hell squealing and laughing...It's sending M crazy. He's runnin' after her going "one day I'm gonna catch you!!" (as if he couldn't now...) :)

My kids bawled their eyes out over Wilson....I'd hate to see them so tortured over that cake!
