Hi! Not sure if you remember me or not, but you may remember this photo of Nathan Fillion holding Twine. I Photoshopped this up for you… oh, forever ago. Truth be told, I kinda forgot about it, till I saw what happened this afternoon. That… kinda sucked. I feel your pain!
You see, you and I? We have a lot in common! Like many of your fans, I discovered you through Beyonce… because no less than a dozen of my friends emailed/tweeted/messaged the link to me, saying that it sounds like something my husband and I would do. They were right! (I should probably blog about our epic passive aggressive toilet paper war sometime…)
Like you, I’m a blogger. (I say, from my blog. Genius, I am!). I have a much smaller following than you, but I feel like we reach the same sort of ridiculously cool people, who can appreciate our weirdness. My readers are AWESOME.
Somehow, I’ve managed to get on a list, and receive some… err, interesting PR pitches, myself. No offers of celebrity photos yet, but I HAVE been in the position to respond to a pitch with “Is that a typo, or is this cookbook ACTUALLY going to teach me how to make whale vomit?” Oh, the pitches…!
Like you, I have an awesome photo of Wil Wheaton ->
Wil Wheaton… with a TARDIS cake. Not just any TARDIS cake, but my own TARDIS cake! (I liked the photo so much, I put it in the 2nd edition of Evil Cake Overlord, one of my cookbooks… with his permission, of course!)
Crap. He’s wearing a REDDIT shirt. Sorry about that… I swear I’ll make it up to you before this post is finished!.
Oh, and there was this time that I thought it would be awesome to make William Shatner a cake, when he came to town. My own fans got right on it, tweeting… someone started up a Facebook page to campaign… and then I got slapped down by a really rude tour PR dude. Man, he needed to get over himself, but hey… I can relate.
Anyway, enough about me …
You sound like you are having a pretty crappy week. I can relate (See? KINDRED SOULS, I tell you!)… so let’s cheer each other up. I have a request for you!
I would love a photo of you, holding one of my cakes. I can even make it easy on you – I’d love to MAKE you a cake*, when you come to visit Minneapolis next week! Forget twine, you could have your very own cake by an honest-to-God OVERLORD** of cake… and the current reigning Czar of Cakes.
I mean really, how many times are you going to get THAT kind of offer in your lifetime?
Either way, chin up! You’re headed to TORONTO! I am kinda jealous. Did you know they have the best mustard in the WORLD in Toronto? No? Well, now you do! (I miss it!)
* Just FYI: I don’t even make cake anymore, so I’d be making a huge exception… but hey, I like you!)
** Seriously, it’s my official professional designation, and even get industry mail addressed to me as such! Muahahaha!
