They Had Me At Cupcake Shops

I am the biggest fan of Weird New Jersey IN THE WORLD.

Well.

In my world anyway- which is pretty much just me, my dog- who is freaking AWESOME- my camera, laptop and my cool collection of neat stuff ( which consists of  things like gargoyles, some embalmers tools and a few casts of my family members teeth )

HOWEVER.

Weird NJ is the Promised Land for those of us who love to explore the odd and the macabre.  I’ve had to read the books and magazines and watched anything Weird NJ  on TV.

It fed my weird and curious little Soul.

Truthfully, I always felt a little cheated that Washington State didn’t have anything like Weird NJ. I’d go as far as to say I was downright embarrassed that we seemed so boring and normal.

So yesterday I find out  from about a half dozen emails from  some of my friends who know how much I THRIVE on strange and curious, that right here in Seattle we have our very own version of Mark & Mark- and that we are not so normal here out in the Pacific Northwest.

BOOYAH!
