Previously on Exciting Nerd News... this awesome comment which is giving me a laugh induced asthma attack. Who knew my coworkers could be so funny? Mine eyes have been opened. My real, working, non-vestigial eyes, that is.
And now... Exciting Nerd News.
I was waiting for the elevator in a parking deck in Beverly Hills - the one where the Candidate for President of the World holds court. As the elevator door opens, a guy comes up next to me and kind of huffs in a combination of laughter and "whatevs" at the Candidate's salutation to "Quadruple Handsome - and Quadruple Beautiful too!"
We escape into the elevator.
I notice the gent is carrying a big bag from Sprinkles Cupcakes - a really big bag, considering it has cupcakes in it, which are, in general, rather wee. Now, I've been driving past Sprinkles for a while, and you can't help but notice the huge line out the door all the time (though apparently one may jump to the head of the line if she calls ahead).
I mentioned as much to him - or tried to, as he immediately offered an enthusiastic rejoinder:
"Oh, you haven't been? Oh, you're doing yourself a great disservice walking past there (he missed that part where I drive past; in fact, I think I hadn't even gotten those words out yet... he's VERY enthusiastic about Sprinkles)! You HAVE to go in..."
His voice is familiar, but he's still talking about Sprinkles.
"You absolutely have to go in, you have no idea what you're missing."
I look up at him for the first time.
I murmur something along the lines of, "yes, I must; I always see a long line..." and Data practically bursts with joy, "Let me tell you something... the Red Velvet is INCREDIBLE."
And with that, he cupcakes his way off the elevator (Data drives himself! And doesn't valet!) with a smile and a "You have to go!"
I wish I could have told him about my friend in college who is allergic to red food coloring, so his mom makes an Aqua Velva (Flammable until dry. Do not apply near fire, flame or heat. Avoid storing above 100°F) cake instead.
Celebrity Verdict: Super nice man, loves the Red Velvet cupcakes.
where do I get my cupcake chip installed?
