Not too long ago, I made a promise to you as my readers. I promised that I would post one useful tip regarding the excellent CakePHP Framework every day for a period of 10 days. I also said what I would do if I would miss one day of posting:
In case I break my promise and miss only 1 day of posting a new tip (my time zone is GMT+1), I’ll take & post a picture of myself putting my face into a cake.
After already doing 14 posts (checkout the list on PHPDeveloper.org) in 8 days, I missed to do a post on day 9. It was Friday, I was tired and the next thing I remembered was waking up on my couch, knowing that I had missed to post a tip. So I admited, that I had lost my bet, and now it was time to take the beating.
Let's start with a picture of the Cake itself. It was a cheap frozen one that I picked up from a bigger store in the city. So far nothing special. But while I was preparing everything and the Cake was already sitting on my desk, he was smiling at me! Now you wouldn't believe that, but fortunately I was able to capture a shot of him doing that right before he turned back into a normal Cake, pretending it had never happened:
Now even so my Cake seemed to have a great time, I didn't feel exited about this entire proccess at all.
But well, I had to do it, and this time it was the Cake that didn't seem to have any fun. In case you have moral or religious concerns about violence against Cake's, you should probably skip this image.
And here comes my final punishment - getting the Cake all over my face. For those of you very interested in details: Yes I know there is one piece of Cake on my upper lip, and yes I am German, but NO this did not happen on purpose - I am no Cake nazi, I swear.
After the initial shock, I got angry at the Cake that had put me into this entire situation:
And finally another shot of the blogger that didn't update his blog regulary. This one is looking rather awkward, but so what:
So, I did it. I embaressed myself in the open public, and nobody is probably ever going to hire me again. But at least I've not broken my promise and shown the blogging community what can happen if you don't update your blog regulary. May other's be more lucky then I was ...
