Flavors: Wednesday, November 6th
The store is coming along absolutely beautifully. And between working on it and doing all sorts of book events, I am losing my freaking mind. I’m debating whether or not to show up at tomorrow’s event at the 92nd Street Y drunk. It will be a lovely time- a small group of us sitting around talking about food, parenthood, small business, having/not having it all, and whatever else you guys are up for. There will also be lots of cupcakes to eat, because it’s always more fun to make new friends and talk about things while eating something all dainty-looking.
Then once I get home from the Y, I’m going to put up the Thanksgiving ordering. Because amazingly, we’re at that point of the year, and I couldn’t be more stoked about it. I started listening to Christmas carols on Spotify two weeks ago. I know it’s early, but I just don’t think one month is nearly enough to enjoy the smooth Christmas stylings of a Mister Barry Manilow.
There are honestly a billion brilliant images that pop up if you google “Barry Manilow Christmas.” I highly encourage you to all stop working and do that now. Or, go buy something tasty, then do it.
