Soooo I think putting together actual, organized, chronological blog entries about my book events in Seattle and Portland last November/December is just too overwhelming of a task right now, so I will share short, unorganized, bursty nuggets of traveling fun with you instead!
This first bursty nugget is a compilation of sped-up video clips of me eating cupcakes baked by the lovely Miss Cuppy. She ever so graciously baked us 9 chocolate cuppies, and we had to eat them all before getting on the plane in 2-3 days. Tough job, right!??! I am actually a huge cupcake snob. The cake needs to be tasty and moist, and the frosting needs to be light and fluffy and not to sweet. I often find myself wiping off most of the frosting on a cupcake so I can just get at the less offensive cake part. But trust me, Cuppy’s cupcakes are 100% thoroughly DELISH!!! And I’m not just saying that cuz she’s my pal, otherwise I wouldn’t have bothered to blog about it. Them thingz are GOOOOOOD!!! Oh I’m dreaming about them now….. I’m sad I didn’t capture all 9 cupcakes getting eaten, but sometimes Hairy refused to be filmed whilst eating, and I think there were times we shoved them in our mouths real fast and ran out of the hotel room!
Just to round out the Cuppy and Moofs Seattle adventure: we all walked into Elliott Bay books to get Cuppy a copy of my book, and as we were walking around with the book, one of the store employees asked if it was Cuppy on the cover of the book. TOO FUNNY! It’s true, that day, Cuppy’s hair probably matched the cover more than mine did.
I don’t know why I look so worried in that photo! HAHA. This is the only photo we took on that trip. We suck. Next time: MORE!
Anyhoo, my other favorite memory with Cuppy on that trip is when we were walking around Urban Craft Uprising after my book signing, and we were shopping, and it was SO FREAKING HOT inside the venue, we were sweating bullets! We shared girl talk about our sweaty, stinky armpits. Then, while I was browsing around some cute jewelry booth, I FREAKED OUT!!! I was like, “CUPPY!! THE WORST THING THAT COULD EVER HAPPEN JUST HAPPENED!!!!!!!!” While shopping, I’d shoved a brown paper bag under my arm so I could have extra grabby hands, and when I removed the paper bag…it had a nasty SWEAT MARK ON IT!! AHHHHH!!
Also I had fried pickles for the first time.
