OMG THERE WUZ AN EARTHQUAKE!!!! OMFGZ!!!!! NO ONE IS SAFE!!!!
I honestly thought it was the subway passing under me. Am I so much of a New Yorker that even an earthquake doesn’t phase me? I grew up here, and I am beginning that even though I think I’m tolerant of everything and not the least bit geocentric, there is SO MUCH I am learning about the world that is foreign. Namely- earthquakes. And this week I also learned that there are people in America who go to Applebee’s for fun- like, get dressed up on a Saturday night to go hang out at Applebee’s and get loaded on Mucho Margaritas. Suddenly, I feel so sheltered and out of touch with America.
Back to Earthquakeapocolypsearamalamadingdong. Fortunately, there was no serious damage, except for one major thing: the VCR for our Circus of the Stars screening. At least, I’d like to blame the earthquake. Maybe it just died because it wanted to make me look stupid in front of everyone who showed up. Long story short- no one could make it work, and it took two people to dismantle the entire thing in order for us to get the tape out. Everyone who came out just to be disappointed got free cupcakes, to thank them for being a friend (just like you would have wanted, Bea).
Fortunately the videotape survived, so we’ll be able to screen it for real next week with a VCR who ISN’T a gigantic stupid jerk! Click HERE for the Facebook invite for the rescheduling.
Once the earthquake was over, and we were sure everyone was safe, there were important questions to ask- namely DID MY SEGMENT GET BUMPED FROM THE EYEWITNESS NEWS AT FIVE?!?!?! According to Twitter and Facebook, the promos for it have been playing non-stop on Channel 7 for two days, and since I got rid of network and cable television I haven’t been able to see it. I think it’s pretty obvious that this earthquake was really nothing more than a conspiracy against me.
But now for some ACTUAL news- I’m writing the schedule for September, meaning that it’s only a few short weeks until fall flavors return! CLICK HERE to send me your requests- I’ll do my best to get the all in stores this month!
And now for the cupcakes that are in stores RIGHT NOW! GO GET ‘EM!
