I'll Be Back

Posting has been light this week for a couple of reasons:

1. There was an election. Maybe you heard about it? No? Yeah, it wasn't really a big deal.

(Click to enlarge the cutest picture in history)

I spent the evening crying and eating lemon bundt cake. At a little past 11, people were running down the street by my house shooting guns in the air and screaming, "YES WE CAN!" I was like, "I don't think that's what it means."

2. My internship is ending and I'm flying home tomorrow! It's been so much fun and gone by so fast, I can't believe it.

My last week consisted of interviewing Leanne from Project Runway (click here to check it out), researching Pakistani boy bands, posing as a sexy penguin in a photobooth with my friend Catherine, and forcing my amazing coworkers to spend so much time with me that they'll probably rejoice when I leave. ("Is that needy intern girl finally gone?") I'm going to miss them. A lot.

I'll be back in the blogging game on Monday, but in the meantime, feel free to check out the new podcast over at The Sunday Best, featuring moi. Thomas always does a bang-up job, and if you push that play button you'll be treated to juicy secrets like why the hell this blog is called Daddy Likey and how much I would pay for cheese.

Thanks so much for the opportunity, Thom, and I hope you guys enjoy it!

How can you cry while eating lemon bundt cake? Don't ruin a good cake experience with tears!

Sorry to hear that you're having to leave your amazing internship & new friends so soon... I know you were really enjoying yourself. BUT, on the other hand... Oregon has missed you & can't wait for you to come home. AND, I totally think we should make plans to hang out sometime after you get back & settled back in.

So nice to know that Oregon has missed me because I've missed it too! And yes, we'll have to do a lunch date sometime!

That's funny. I just got to interview Kayne from PR Season 3. He was a blast.

And that pic you posted really is the cutest pic I've ever seen.

Adorable picture. I didn't hear any guns, but my friend had a streaker running down her street when they called it, but she lives in a super-liberal hippie village that straddles dc and maryland, so everything that happens there is always a bit extreme :)

Poochie said...

I love that picture.

Love it.

This is completely unrelated, but does it bother you that J. Crew long sleeves are no longer 2 for $35 but 2 for $50? Shoot me now?

Elizabeth said...

It sounds like an action-packed week for you, Winona!

My little lightning bolt, I miss you!

I think of you every time I pass by the photobooth. And I wonder, was it Dutch or Deutsch? 'Cause if it was the latter, you got yelled at in German. Still scary!
