The good news is that my friend Joe wants to open a cup-cake shop in Columbus.  The bad news is that I’m on a voluntary cup-cake strike.

I was reading Augusten Burroughs’ book “Dry” when I discovered that he thanked Amy Sedaris for the cup-cakes during his introduction.  I’m in the final process of writing my first book as well, and I thought it would be nice to receive cup-cakes from Amy Sedaris so that I could write something similar in my introduction.

I wrote to Augusten and suggested that he ask Amy to send me some cup-cakes and told him that I would be willing to go without them until she did.  So far they haven’t shown up and it’s been three months.  And maybe it was that the box was stolen off of my front porch after they were delivered, but the fact remains that I still haven’t received cup-cakes from Amy Sedaris.

Joe and I thought it would be a great idea to have Amy come to Columbus so that she could sample his line of cup-cakes.  When she does, she’ll be able to buy them locally and not have to worry about the shipping.  So we’re extending an open invitation to Amy Sedaris to come to Columbus and partake.

Amy, if you’re reading this I want you to know that I have a spare room and you’re welcome to stay at my place.  Augusten is welcome too, but one of you will have to sleep on the sofa.
