Cocaine, Cupcakes, Black Friday


Cocaine Princess here.

Here's a brief rundown of a few of the thrilling things I did this week.
 

Sister had requested that I do a favor for her: to call up one of the bakeries in town and put in an order for 2 dozen cupcakes-- something about a school thing and cupcakes were required. I must have tried calling the bakery at least 20 times but I wasn't getting through. I couldn't even leave a message due to their voice mailbox being full. I googled their name and found their website along with a text number where customers could text their order and receive a response within 6 to 12 hours. Perfect, I thought! Sure I could have easily driven to the place but I wasn't really in the mood to go out on that particular day. I sent the bakery sister's order via text message.  Later that following evening I receive a text message reply.

"We are not that kind of business!!"


What the hell? They're a bakery and they don't bake cupcakes? How strange but forget that, their reply to me was a little uncalled for, right? Talk about harsh. Couldn't they have been more polite about it? Was it really necessary for them to add not 1 but 2 exclamation points at the end of their sentence? How rude.....and then I understood why they did.

Oh boy! I texted or so I thought the following.

"I would like to place an order for cupcakes, two dozen." 


And then I hit send.

Without me knowing auto correct changed CUPCAKES to COCAINE.

Oh my God! I sent a text message indicating I wanted 2 dozen orders of cocaine. Seriously, how stupid is auto-correct?!

We pulled out our Christmas decorations from storage. I can't believe Christmas is almost a month away and a brand new year is right around the corner. Aside from the traditional decorations: Christmas tree, garland, wreath, poinsettias, lights etc. we also put up our awesome Peanuts display. Check it out:

Today is Black Friday and for the first time the land that brings you maple syrup and Justin Bieber will be celebrating Black Friday. It's really just a ploy to keep Canadians from driving across the border. I'm not too sure what to expect because for the past week many malls have been promoting Pre-Black Friday sales and Black Friday is not just a one day sale, it'll be going on until Sunday, aka Black Friday Weekend. Secondly, it's not a holiday here so I don't predict it's going to be wild and crazy like south of the boarder with manic mayhem, people trampling one another and lining up hours before the stores even open.....but then again who knows, maybe it will be.

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Black Friday.

Whatever your plans are have a tasty long weekend. Gobble Gobble. ~x

XOXOXOXO,
Cocaine Princess

Good morning, Princess...

LMBO @ auto-correction from'cupcakes' to 'cocaine'...

I wonder if J. J. Cale ever wrote a song about 'Cupcakes?'

"... it's alright... it's alright... it's alright... cupcakes."

I always liked Charley Brown and Snoopy...

If you go out shopping, have fun and be careful!!!

Cupcakes r one of the desserts I love best. My friend/coworker had birthday on Wednesday. I bought her a very special birthday cupcake.

That was an awful autocorrect.

I hope u enjoy ur week.

We celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday here in US. Yummy!!!

I do not shop at all on Black Friday. I do not need anything that bad to get out into the crazy crowds. I prefer to enjoy my time if shopping not be trampled on. Ridiculous!!!

I've noticed when asking for drugs the conversation is usually less direct. You should of used the word "product". ;)
