a quiet rage

Not a rage, actually, but when B and I decided not to go to BlogHer in Chicago* I had no idea it meant I would miss a golden opportunity to MEET MY FAVORITEST CELEBRITY ON THE PLANET, AMY SEDARIS (one and two).



FUCK.

(Merci, Maman.)



*B and I decided not to go to BlogHer because:

a) We've never met in person before, we want our first time meeting to be all about us;
b) we would have skipped going to BlogHer and just hung out in Chicago anyway;
c) there are people at BlogHer that neither of us want to see, so why put ourselves through that?;
d) when I come to Texas to visit in October after my Orlando conference we are going to party at her house like it's 1999 and I get to meet all the kittos while we get drunk and smoke (actual) cigars and eat steak and run around the house in our underwear since her husband will be away at a festival. :D (Yes, we will make videos. No, not while in our underwear or naked.)

Item "d": Sounds like Ybor city in Tampa. :) :) :)

That sounds like fun.

RW said...

Yeah I decided not to go to Blogher either and I'm right here in Chicago...

Plus I'm a him. And I've never heard of Amy whoever.

But if you need some advice on cigars just buzz me...

Avitable said...

I don't like Amy Sedaris.

Mr. Fabulous said...

I'm not your favorite celebrity?

Poppy Cede said...

Spénce - It will be the highlight of my trip.

RW - I'm sure you could have crashed the party. I'm thinking you'd look pretty as a girl. :D (I've never smoked a cigar in my life. What's a good beginner cigar?)

Avi, Avi, Quite Contrary - I don't care. (Hey, you say jerky-mean things I dish it back.)

Mr Fab - I'm not entirely sure why you want to be rejected twice... but, no. Sorry. Amy is my favorite. She's fucking insane.

RW said...

Probably the ones that are really gum in a big wrapper but I don't know if they make those any more.

Poppy Cede said...

The still make those! And I've had those.

So, are you going to give me real advice, or did you just promise to give advice and now you're not? Just like They Might Be Giants promised to come back and didn't!! *cry*

RW said...

You can't go wrong with a Padron Maduro. Only get a short one because one that's too long might be too "heavy" for a non-cigar smoker, near the finish. A maduro is a cigar that looks almost black. That's what the kind of tobacco is called. If you don't have a cigar-cutter, don't bite the end, but in a pinch you can take some thin skewer and poke a hole in the end - if nobody's looking. But don't tell a SOUL I said that last part.

Poppy Cede said...

Awesome. I'm going to consult with B about this. And your secret's safe with me. Except it's permanently recorded on my blog. ... :D

Spéncer said...

Well, Tampa is a 50 minute ride from Orlando. It's worth your time.

And you've NEVER smoked a cigar?

Poppy Cede said...

I won't have a car when I'm there. The conference is all day every day that I'm there except the last day when I'm going to Disney with my friends. The most adventurous I'll get outside of Orlando is if Avi picks me up to take me to get that steak he says is so awesome. I'm guessing he's scared of me and will send Britt instead.

Poppy Cede said...

And the closest I've been to smoking a cigar was inhaling my great grandfather's second-hand smoke from his cigars. I enjoyed the scent, but I was never allowed to try. :)

Maman said...

You could have met me! I walked around like a dork (which means spectularly dorky under the circumstances) because I knew nobody...

Amy Sedaris was funny and also selling her crafts, which ranged from the odd to the sublime.. all profits go to support her pet rabbit.

Poppy Cede said...

That would have been fun...

To support her pet rabbit? Not her imaginary boyfriend? He gets no love! It's always about the rabbit!

Spéncer said...

Haha, Avi. XD That's right - Britt is moving to Florida. I'd offer to show you around, HOWEVER, I'll prolly have to go to New England again, which sucks. I hate leaving Florida for school.

Poppy Cede said...

Britt doesn't need a guide. Avi will chain her to his desk and she'll never be able to leave again so there's no point in getting familiar with the rest of Florida.

Spéncer said...

WHY does this sound probable to me?

Poppy Cede said...

It's not just probable, he'll be taking photos of it and posting them on the internet so her children remember what she looks like.

Spéncer said...

HAH, when he gets his computer running!

Poppy Cede said...

An excellent point.

Miss Britt said...

Who the fuck is Amy Sedaris?

Poppy Cede said...

I am not even dignifying that with a response except to say: Google her.
