boooooooks

kt gave me this audio-book to listen to at work. i've started listening to it today, as i'm the only one here right now, but i definitely find it difficult to focus on it's words when i'm 1) typing this post, 2) ordering product, and 3) always leaving my desk...



anyway. one of the first things struck me as very funny:

"in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the galaxy, lies a small, unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly 92 million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet, whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive, that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea..."


i find this funny because josh pointed out that both my sister and i have an issue with reading his watch [or, i guess, anything not digital].

[book by Douglas Adams]



anyway, i believe that's all i have for today.


justtttt kidding.
one more thing:

i was very excited to see that i am not the only one [aside from my girlfriends] that uses the terms "cuppie's" or "cuppiecakes".



i was referred to Cakespy.com by Stacey in response to my April 3 post: "Cupcakes & Love Notes". this interview is with Leslie Fiet, who started "Mini's Cupcakes" in Salt Lake City, Utah. you can read the full interview here: Cakespy: Batter Chatter. i enjoy Cakespy for their pictures that make me drool...and i mean, it's all about cupcakes...sooo, who WOULDN'T enjoy that?

hahha...there are so many amazing quotes in it...you won't be able to contain yourself. It really is a great book, it's like a movie that you can watch over and over again. Every time you read/listen to it you catch something new and so it gets better every time. My sissy told me that there was a tv series the BBC put out in 1981...I want to see them so bad, but I want to read the rest of the books first. I've only made it partway though "The Restaurant at the End of the Universe" because I have no timmmmmmmmmmmme

I've never read the book although I had a copy at one time.

I did see the movie they made based on it. It absolutely sucked eggs.

Maybe if you read the book first then the movie is better.

Maybe...

Thanks for lunch.

#1- LOVE audio books, and that is a good one!! I always listen to books on tape while I do drawings!!

Second, I am so glad you enjoyed the interview!! It's all about the cupcakes--I agree. Maybe there should be a new song, "It's all about the benjamins (and the cupcakes), baby".

Don't you just love cakespy's artwork also??? I love the one where the cupcake has a knife and is going to shank another dessert. Tooooo coooool. Cakespy's Mr. Cakespy is also a musician and has some pretty cool tunes out too. Such creative lil' critters!
