Knock, knock. Anybody there? I'll be in San Francisco Thursday through potentially Tuesday for Foodbuzz Fest and a side of harassing my dear friends. I have tons to take care of before then, so unfortunately I won't be posting anything this week unless I manage to whip something up in my friend's kitchen or I decide I just have to share something with you. I'll provide you will something extra special when I get back--I promise. In the meantime, you can find me over on Twitter this next week, where I will be happy to harass you instead of taking care of my business. And tweeting fun food things from San Francisco.
For those of you who are attending #fbzfest, please come say hi if you see me around. I made a big round button that is red and white and says, "HELLO my name is the baking barrister." I'll be wearing it so people don't have to squint at my conference badge and make me feel like they're staring at my chest. That always annoys me...
I'm going to leave you with a few rules on how to handle The Baking Barrister should you come into contact with said being. Don't ever tell me that I didn't warn you.
1. I bite. If you're afraid, approach me with a cookie and I'll bite that instead.
2. If it looks like I'm scowling or in a bad mood, I'm not--I'm probably just overwhelmed by the hordes of social interaction. You people are too peppy for me.
3. In that vein, don't ever tell me to smile. I'll bite you.
4. Sometimes the best response is to just smile and nod your head. Walk away slowly, though, as barristers bite when frightened.
5. I pick up strays. Well, non-obnoxious people who don't know anyone and clearly need to be included. If I do that to you, I probably won't bite you. I, however, will bite those who are mean to the strays.
6. Please don't hug me if we're not Twitter BFF's. It'll freak me out. See Rule 1, Sentence 1.
7. It's called sarcasm. It's my natural state of being. I'm not being mean, I'm being funny.
Please note that by approaching me you accept the risk of being bitten and waive all potential legal claims stemming from such occurrences. California law applies.
