I think you have personally supplied every feed in my "Cool" folder of Google Reader.

Man Janet... like I needed more reasons to love you. :) Cake Wrecks consistently makes my day.

Whenever I need a laugh to pull myself out of the agonies of writing, I go to CakeWrecks and Failblog.org. Now I'll have to add There, I Fixed It. Thanks for giving me another excuse to procrastinate. Gotta go, there are some toilets waiting to be scrubbed.

I know why you're drawn to this. This is what some of us do to fix a story that really needs to be razed. We call it revision. You just set your hair on fire and call it a day. :-)

Cake Wrecks makes me laugh until my face looks ugly.

Janet, you're gonna have to check this out. I actually know the guy with the redneck pickup truck. He lives in Anchorage.

This just confirms how awesome you are, Janet. Cake Wrecks is one of the best blogs on the web.

And I'm nowhere near query stage so I don't consider that to be sucking up.

So is this is how your schedule works? ;)

9:00 AM-9:05 AM- Enter office, check e-mail slush pile, pass it all off to the Rejectionist for rejecting.

9:06-11:59: Check out Cakewrecks, I Fixed This, and Fail Blog.

12:00-1:45: 3 Martini power lunch.

1:46-1:50: Check e-mail. Pass it all off to Rejectionist, except for the one featuring a row of smiley emoticons in the subject line. Request partial manuscript.

1:51-3:45: Nap time.

3:46-5:00: Check Google reader for updated blogs. Then go home.

Do you think I have it figured out right?

;)

Furious D, you've got it all wrong. She doesn't start work until 1 p.m., because she works until 3 a.m. Now, if that martini lunch were a martini supper, and if you fit about 15 mins of Twitter time around 11 p.m., I think you might have it...

Damn, I love cake wrecks.

Went through some of the older posts and saw the castles. Thought I would mention as I passed by the TV the other day, I caught a glimpse of a cake made to look like the Leaning Tower of Pisa. It may have been made for a celebrity wedding; I'm not sure. It was pretty. And leaned.

Here in the midwest, cakes shaped like deer, fish, dogs (including kibble bowl) and BBQs are popular. I am submitted a mess of pics to cakewrecks for their consideration. Can I be your friend now? Please . . . Please . . .

I'm married to an engineer, so There I Fixed It is like a painful glimpse into my daily reality. (But I love it anyway. The site.)

I have to tell you: you make me laugh every single day. I never have anything clever to comment about, but I just want to thank you. I love Cakewrecks, and There I Fixed It? Ohmigosh, I scream with laughter! I think I laugh so loud, the people on the opposite side of the campground can hear me.

You find the BEST stuff!
