No sugar tonight in my coffee

Or in my tea (which I drink straight up) nor in my cupboard! (Plus Dave and the camera are out of town.) There I was, going gang busters on playing with the 12 Layer cake recipe when I discovered I was out of sugar. I had to open sugar packets from the dining room to make up the last cup for the cake but I couldn't face opening 2 cups worth for the frosting. What's that? why didn't I dash out for some? First I had guests in the house; second Narragansett was setting records for low temperatures and wind chill; third I was afraid the streets had iced up, and fourth, I'm just a lazy person. If Dave had been home I could have sweet talked him into going to the store. I promise to get more sugar today and let you know how it turns out.
