Feeling under the weather

sick day


Friends, you're looking at a Tastycake red velvet cupcake. It's similar to Hostess or Drakes. I discovered this brand over the summer at camp. The big to-do on your nights off was usually a trip to the local bar, or Wawa a run (a local convenience store chain in NJ.) Everyone went nuts over Wawa, and I could never figure out why. Then I discovered these little cakes they sold in the stores. Then they started selling the cakes at the grocery store down the street. Now I'm done for :)


Anyway, that story really has nothing to do with anything, other that I'm holed up in my apartment with little more than cupcakes to keep me company. I co-organized this music-networking event on Wednesday night with some friends/ contacts, and it turned out awesome!! ...except that talking in a loud bar for five hours really isn't the ideal way to treat your vocal cords :( I woke up with a sore throat and feeling sick.

I'm hoping to take it easy on myself in the next couple of days, with lots of tea and rest! In the meantime, I hope you'll enjoy a sponsor feature I've got planned for this weekend, and mayybe even an edition of Sunday Songs.

By the way... just finished up season 4 of the Wire. Really sad, but equally great.

  4. I hope you feel better soon. I didn't understand the love of Wawa until i went in one and fell in love with TastyCakes, sadly they don't sell them near me.

  8. I've been in the same boat lately. The past few days I've been feeling super cruddy I'm hoping it's just sinus stuff. But I don't have any yummy comforts like you, instead I have a ton of school work to do.

  10. Wawa and Tastykakes are definitely up there on my list of south eastern PA-based staples! That said, I obviously need to get my grubby little hands on the red velvet cupcakes. I tend to stick to Kandy Kakes.

  13. Aww... being sick is so annoying. But at least we have blogs and cupcakes and tv shows to keep us company. It's an upgrade from the classic chicken soup I suppose *smile*

    hope you will feel better soon!

    hugs and kisses
