Cheers To Us – Pleasure the Baker

Associates, Joyful New 12 months!  We did one other 12 months collectively, largely to the efforts of Group JtB who stored the practice on the tracks and the calendar so as.  January 2023 (what even?) marks 15 years of Pleasure the Baker which looks like an elaborate, pastry-heavy fever dream.  I hope this finds you easing into this new 12 months.

Here’s a checklist of a few of my favorites via the 12 months of our lord 2022, could it relaxation in our reminiscences.

The most important factor I crossed off the 2022 Bucket Checklist

Seems my proudest second of 2022 was a bit of tumble into the gravel with my bike this week on a past-my-technical-ability hill in Arkansas.  Each rider I’ve dragged recommendation and encouragement out of has instructed me that each rider, skilled and newbie, drops their bike.  I positive did stall myself on the sting of a double steep curve making an attempt to determine the right way to get myself up and out earlier than unceremoniously tipping my bike and myself down the gravel.  I might hear Will laughing (in his head solely) whereas jogging down the hill to avoid wasting me.  Seems I used to be presupposed to be in first or second gear as an alternative of fourth – OOPS. I get it now. Low gears. Extra revs.  Dropping my bike means I’ve crossed Be taught How To Experience a Motorbike off my 2022 checklist and I understand how to mud myself on and trip myself again to camp.  It solely took a number of hours earlier than Will and I had been each laughing about my gravel dive.

True Story

My favourite present of 2022 truly got here out in late 2021 however spare me a bit of grace.  Kevin Hart’s True Story is darkish and twisty and a stunning departure from my favourite character from Jumanji 2 (and nobody loves Jumanji 2 greater than me it’s very bizarre). (Netflix)
