if it weren’t for that table on the ground floor of my store, i don’t think i would ever laugh. and certainly not as much as this book has made me laugh. i’m very backwards—i don’t just naturally know about any of those blogs or websites that you people take for granted. i just see books. now that i know this exists on this computer thing i am going to check it out because this book made me cry with laughter. i worked at ben and jerry’s during college and i made some cakes in my day, so i am familiar with the kind of hi-larious things people request be written on their cakes, particularly when the store is within spitting distance of three college dorms full of stoned kids. but these cakes are a wonder. it’s mostly the misspelling/misunderstanding section. i’ve seen misspellings before (i do read greg’s reviews before i vote for them!) hee. but on a cake there is something tragic and bold about misspellings. even the simple ones: “i lave you” on a heart-shaped cake. all i can say about this book is: page 6. page 55. i can’t stop laughing.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
