(My mother, Mammatelli, has something to say) "As Moomers (Mark's cat) lay on the mousepads and the mouse, she decided to change positions. While I was trying to type, she moved around and settled in another place: with her tail placed right on top of a small candle I had burning nearby. Suddenly I realized that she was in danger! I grabbed her and her almost, but not quite, burned tail, now drenched in melted wax.
So, she is resting now with a small waxy tail, with a small near burn, which is covered in antibiotic cream.
She is fine. Her tail is fine. She says you may use this story in your Improv Cabaret."
Ladies and gentlemen...Mammatelli.

One type of cupcakes they made for the 2007 Grandma Party
Sweet Tooth Vegan Goodies = Awesome
I was almost able to get Sweet Tooth Vegan Goodies to mini-cater "A Night With the Girls 2" but the timing didn't work out. The company sells their cupcakes and cookies and breakfast stuff at Dandelion Communitiea. Everything is vegan and home-made right here in Orlando. If you want to support locally-produced food, go to Dandelion and snatch up some Sweet Tooth Vegan Goodies. If they did shipping I'd have them sent to me on tour.
"All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you're not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you're the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no, until all the no's become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly. AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES."(Nike ad)
