The story of how Carrie and I met is hilarious, so it’s a shame that I’m not going to tell it right now. It’s not scandalous or long or even a secret; I just don’t feel like it. (But seriously, it’s really funny.)
What I do feel like talking about is sleep. I love sleep more than anyone else I know loves sleep. I’ll sleep almost an entire day away and my only regret might be that I didn’t sleep the whole day. This makes the circumstances under which this photo was taken somewhat ironic. Carrie and I agreed that the best time for me to come over and do this photo shoot for her baking blog was very early in the morning. I have a tough time waking up in the very early morning and to boot she lives an hour away. Solution? Do not sleep the night before and drive up at five in the morning.
While on paper this seems like a great idea in practice it leads to all sorts of issues, like loading film wrong or hating each other.
It turned out that these problems were only temporary and that we wound up with a bunch of great stuff which is presently gracing the pages of her blog – where, by the way, you can actually buy the things that she bakes to eat at home. Last time I checked my friend Mike has a standing order with her for little pies every month. He seems to enjoy them.
