I had wanted to go, and said that I would, last month when Chris was in Seattle. I hadn't been responsible for my time and I didn't make it. When I saw that his very last stop was in Vancouver B.C, I saw it as a great way to get a dose of international travel- if only for the day. I also saw it as a way of keeping my word. And the biggest reason was because I would also get to meet Danielle LaPorte. It was a slam dunk!
One of the great things about a stop on Chris' book tour is the type of people that show up. We live in a land of what is possible and don't usually play the game of life with the traditional set of rules. After just a few minutes of sitting down, I met a couple of new friends and we hit it off right away- Jason and Gillian. They have a great travel blog: one GIANT step. Check them out- they give you the real deal about what to expect on a round the world trip.
Now, apparently at Chris' stops, there are people who bring cookies, cupcakes, and other baked goods. Even vegan, gluten free varieties! I was doing fine when the those in particular came around. I was even good when the overly frosted cupcakes wafted passed my nose. But there it was- one of my ultimate temptations besides croissants-Danielle LaPorte offering me a piece of perfectly, thinly frosted, chocolate cake filled with some kind of wonderful goodness which had cost her a fortune.
Thump thump- thump thump- thump thump thump thump thump thump
Damn- I know it's got to be good. I mean like...damn good. Paslov's dogs ain't got shit on me in this moment. I did go for a long walk along Robson- that counts, right?
Thump thump thump thump thump
I am committed to losing this weight- I am committed to losing this weight
Thump thump- thump thump
Graciously I thank her and tell her, and myself, that Sugar is not my friend no matter how sweet she speaks to me- even when she is all dressed up and looking so good as that devil called Cake.
