Tomorrow I will go where I never in a million years thought I would go.

It’s Garr’s birthday weekend. This is how we celebrate in this household.

I don’t know much about Garth, but do hear he puts on an entertaining show. I’m really just into it for Tricia Yearwood. I love that gal. Not her singing, though, she is talented in that department. I’m into her Food Network show. We have entirely opposite eating habits (she’s a lil more fried chicken, I’m a lil more fried chickpea), but I just love her style. I think we’d be pals. Like, I’d like to get together for cocktails with Trish (“may I call you Trish?”) and just hang. Maybe we could cook something together. Something with loads of vegan butter or something.

Once I load her with carbs, I will audition for her and solidify my future in fame.
