The #1 Reason Why I Was Too Distracted to Post What I Was Going to Post Today

I was too excited about meeting pun master Jen Yates (creator and author of the mega-blog Cake Wrecks) and her husband John at their "Wreck the Halls" book tour stop in Richmond this evening. Here's proof:

Jen and John doing their shtick

My book (not my nails) :)

Cupcake replica of "famous" camo-hunting wedding cake wreck

Another cupcake "wreck" replica

My autograph (I told her to write "whatever she wanted." :)

I'm the one with my face partially covered and my eyes closed. Flattering, huh?
(Truth: They totally thought it would be funny to block my face on purpose...but I'm still a dork with my eyes closed.)

That picture up there was fake. Here's the "real" one. I am too tall to stoop over seated people, by the way. I look like a hunchback with no neck. But I got my "Happy Hole..." book and all is good. :)

I'm too tired to write anything else, but if you want to know more about this event, e.g. Is she funny in real life? Does she eat lots of cake?, please feel free to ask me in the comments. :)

And simply because I can't leave you all weekend without something "dog," here's a gratuitous photo of Jon Farleigh's under-region:

Don't his feet look like something out of a Dr. Seuss book? :)

Oh, and in case you need to know, the post I would have posted today, had I not been too distracted, will get posted on Monday.

Have a fun (not reckless - but potentially "wreck-full") weekend!


  1. found you thru a tweet.

    nice to meet.

    the rhyming is for the reference to the feet

    be back when you post the post you were going to post

  2. Never heard of Cake Wrecks (no, I don't really live in a cave), but I'm off to check it out now. These peeps are crazy! (my kind of peeps)

  3. Gaggghhhggaaaahhh! This is so much happy in one place:


    I am about to pass out from all the fun.

    Love and biscuits!

  4. Jealous, jealous, jealous! I love Cake Wrecks.

  5. One of my favorite blogs...if I have a liner on.

  6. how cool and look at those goodies!
    Benny & Lily

  7. I just have to get out more! I'm embarrassed to say I have never heard of Cake Wrecks! It all looks like fun!

  8. Cake Wrecks? That's a new one to me!

    Happy weekend woofs & hugs, <3

  9. I've loved cake wrecks. Who'd have thought it could go from blog to cottage industry?

    Are you inspired to pursue a book contract of corgi undercarriages?

  10. Thanks for the comments, everyone. :) And if you haven't seen the blog Cake Wrecks yet, you really should go there immediately. :) Oh and because no one asked, here's a bit of trivia from Cake Wrecks:
    * On average, Jen and John receive 50 wreck photos a day.
    *Cake Wrecks has 17,000 archived photos.
    * Jen sometimes has a hard time thinking up daily "themes." :)

    @Scrappy - Thank you and nice to meet you!

    @Pup Fan - I kind of figured you did...puns and cake...hmmm.

    @Nancy - Yeah, you and me both. :)

    @Pamela - Yes, who knew? I think Jen Yates must ask herself that a lot.
    As far as your other question, maybe I should. Then I'll be the one asking "who knew?" :)


We love comments almost as much as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Thank you!
