UPDATE!!! I got the Santa Barbara ad in my sidebar! Woo hoo! You should really go there! It is the most beautiful place on earth. La Super Rica is my favorite restaurant...or maybe the Palace Cafe...and you must go to the Botanic Garden, the Museum of Art, and the Courthouse.
It's a crazy blogging life, isn't it?
I think the first time I heard of Fluid Pudding it was when Dooce mentioned a hilarious post she had written about taking a drink of something and then immediately forgetting what it was and wondering what was in her mouth...and I thought "Wow. There are other blogs besides Dooce?"
Fast forward three years to BlogHer08 where the one and only Angela from Fluid Pudding was my roommate. And thus I can tell you a secret about her: she is a perfectly quiet sleeper. Unlike SOME people who snort and snarf and fling the covers about while tossing and turning (namely me), you would not even know she was there.
Not only was she my roommate, but she brought Gooey Butter Cake for me, a confection that is so decadent that it is illegal in 14 states and 7 foreign countries.
Because we are very, very bad BlogHers, we skipped one of the morning keynote hooplas and went shopping instead. We went to a yarn store, where Angela was totally in her element and I was enamored by so many different yarns that had to hold myself back from buying them, even though I neither knit or crochet (I imagined myself sitting at home, fondling my very expensive hanks of handspun yarn).
This is Angela with some really beautiful orange yarn she bought. Right next to it, there is some fabulous purple yarn made of the same thing - I think it is silk and alpaca. She bought some of the purple yarn...for me!
Then we went and had fish tacos. God, I love hanging out with that woman.
Yesterday I got a package in the mail:
A soft lovely handmade scarf of the most beautiful yarn in the world (It's darker purple than the photo shows. A nice amethyst!)
I love this crazy blogging world. It feels like I belong here.
