Mondays are my Fridays…..we start our workweek on Wednesdays, and end with Monday morning deliveries. It’s really nice because while you all are bitching about your jobs on Facebook, Matt, the kids and I have the whole city to ourselves and finally get a moment to unwind. And this Monday is particularly special because JESUS H CHRIST you would not believe the week we just survived. I really don’t think any of you need to hear yet another person complain about the snow, but I will say this: if it snows again, I will personally walk down the street and punch every goddamn snowflake I see in its smarmy little jerk-ass face. For reals.
If you have sent me an email or are waiting for a response from me on something, I apologize for all the delays. We do all our own deliveries and inventory, and the weather has literally tripled the amount of time I need to spend in the car, which means that every waking moment of “personal time” I have (which is my chance to do paperwork) has been completely erased. It’s now close to 1am and I’m chugging coffee while Matt and the kids sleep in an attempt to catch up. If you do get an email from me that contains mostly vowels and various threats against the UN, again I apologize.
On another tangent, a BIG thank you to everyone who came out to our latest Pop-Up on Saturday at 201 Mulberry! Also a big thank you to our friends at NoLIta Mart, who supplied me with the 13 cups of coffee that allowed me to stand upright all day. We got awesome feedback on the cupcakes, but as always the best part of the day was seeing all of you guys. I hope we get to do it again real soon. :)
In fact, real soon could be tonight, especially if you’re into facial hair. The Bell House is hosting the 2011 Beard Fest & Stache Bash- a celebration of all things beardy! And when they thought of beards and they thought about awesome food, there was only one call they could make. Fortunately for us the Mast Brothers were unavailable and we got called instead! Matt will be there all night selling manly flavors and watching dudes get frosting in their beards, hoping to get on this site. You could be one of those dudes, or a woman who loves one. Is that really the sort of opportunity you can pass up?
