Bundt It, Baby!

Thursday, September 3, 2009

So, I go to this Food Festival, the Taste of Saugatuck, over the weekend, where I not only run headfirst into a buttload of kabobs but also Bump-Its.

Our riverfront and boardwalk was just sick with women who looked like a kitten fight was going on in the back of their hair.

Now, I'm addicted to those late-night medical shows, where they show people who have wings instead of arms, or a mole so big it's drinking a mojito, smoking a cigar and winking at you ... Well, this was worse. I mean, I'd seen the Bump-It commercials on TV, but I'd never really paid attention to what the product made you look like up close. Here, in broad daylight, it looked one out of every five partygoers had suffered a severe head injury. Worse? They kinda thought they were rockin' the house. From the side, they looked like they were about to give birth through their noggins, like some sort of whacked-out, overly made-up Zeuses (in tunic tops).

So, I FB about all this on Monday, and the response is overwhelming. My literary agent (the whirlwind that is Wendy Sherman) notices this and e-mails me, noting all the activity. "You should do a Bump-It video!" she says.

Lesson: You never want to give an exhausted gay couple (one with a broken toe) that's just been on tour all summer and whose family has just departed a bad idea. They will jump all over it like lions on elk, simply to blow off steam.

I head out that afternoon to a meeting for a writers seminar I'm conducting this fall, and when I return I'm greeted by Gary -- in full drag, our dogs going ape-shit -- posing with the BUNDT IT on top of his head which, as he said as I emerged from the SUV, "This kicks the Bump-It's ass all over the place."

A homemade video (not porn, sorry to say ... I mean, a toe ensconced in tape and an orthopedic shoe is so not hot) ensued that very night. And the results? Well, see for yourselves. Just meander over to my home page, click on the YouTube link at the bottom and then on the Bundt-It video.

We'll see you on HSN, Joan Rivers!

HAHAHAHAHA!! That is classic! I just finished "At Least in the City..." today, and I kept thinking that I wished I knew what Gary looked like. Well, problem solved. :)

Ah, yes, Jessica, we all wondered the same thing. I emailed George and Gregg, friend's of Wade & Gary's to see if they had a photo of Gary to send me. After all they were the one's who turned me on to this book... Then we found the website and the 4 of us who just finished reading In the City had another hour of laughter going through the you tube videos. I have had more fun reading this book and sharing it with others who all have the same reaction: Laughing Out Loud, no matter where they are.

We can't wait to get our Bunt-Its in the mail.

I'm glad you loved the Bundt-It ... but I'm sad there hasn't been more love for the Damsel in Distress public hair scrunchy. And thanks for loving AT LEAST

... AND Gary. He's on a mega-headtrip that people want to know what he looks like and now it's going to cost me like a thousand bucks to update all the photos on here ... Gary wants like a Beyonce photo shoot now, wardrobe changes, the whole works ... he wants hot pix since people are now all "up in my bizness!" as he likes to say.

Stay tuned, boys and gurls! xx, Wade

I'm halfway through your books, and thanks to you, I won't have to do stomach crunches for a month. I'm laughing out loud like a mad woman (it I added a Bundt-It, I would be truly terrifying). The part about the guys in the grocery store, the ones cleverly disguised in camouflage so no one could see them? Priceless.

Wow, those ALL look astonishing! Particularly the Sour Cream Bundt Cake with that thick layer of ganache (or whatever that is!). Whew, I'm slobbering.

Ah, sure, jessica, we all wondered the same issue. I emailed george and gregg, pal's of wade & gary's to look if they had a picture of gary to ship me. After all they were the only's who became me directly to this e-book... Then we discovered the internet site and the four people who simply completed analyzing inside the Tyre Shop Near Me metropolis had any other hour of laughter going via the you tube motion pictures. I've had greater a laugh reading this e-book and sharing it with others who all have the identical reaction: laughing out loud, irrespective of wherein they're.
