True story: One of my friends talks about spending all of his weekly bonus money on filo and I was all “That’s awesome.” Because I love pastries. And it’s relieving to me to know that I’m not the only one buying impulse carbs but then this week he was all “Like the new jacket? It’s filo.” And I was all “How are they making jackets out of pastry dough? Is this like when hemp wasn’t just for smoking anymore? Because I’m confused.” Then my friend was all “No. FILA, dumbass. It’s a brand name. You thought I was spending all my extra money on bread?” and yeah, I did. BECAUSE THAT’S THE KIND OF WORLD I WANT TO LIVE IN.
Also, now I’m hungry for filo bread.
This is where I would normally put the weekly wrap-up but I’m still recovering from touring so I haven’t really done anything worth writing about, so instead I’m doing a reverse shit-I-did-this-week by telling you what I plan to do next week. Yay! Everyone loses.
Next Tuesday we’re going to start to discuss the first few chapters of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened in a live book club where you can be drunk, home and in your pajamas. It will be awesome. Or a complete clusterfuck. Either way it will be interesting. We’re going to start off over on this page but if it crashes we’ll move over to twitter. If that doesn’t work we’ll look into something else. (UPDATED: We’ve already moved to something else. See the bottom of this post.) Then ever day that week from 7-8pm central we’ll talk about the chapters until we devolve into absurdity. To get things started for those of you who haven’t bought, borrowed or stolen the book yet I did a quick reading last night of the Introduction and chapter 1. It’s a titch cursey so you’ve been warned.
Also, all the pictures (and more) from the book for those of you with the audio version: http://www.flickr.com/photos/thebloggess/collections/
This reverse-weekly-wrap-up was sponsored by Dashing Bee, an online consignment store for adorable children’s clothes, gear, toys and more. Also they have really cute clothes that you can use to dress up your Cabbage Patch Kids and they really need to start marketing that. That is an untapped market, Dashing Bee.
UPDATED: I’m moving the book club over the goodreads. It’s easy to join and is free and won’t crash my system since it’s not on my blog. Yay for all of those things. Click here to join in.
