When it comes to pizza, I am as old school as it comes.
And if we’re talking a second topping?
More pepperoni. Never found another topping that (sorry) topped it.
But on today,
National Pizza Day, even I admit that a more spectacular pie may be in order. So, I present to you —
The William and Kate
Knife and fork required. Curtsy before you chew.

In my ‘other life,’ I write marketing copy.
Web, collateral, packaging — you name it.
As I was feeding my dog this morning, I received a reminder that any customer-facing text can surprise and delight…
Even something as simple as the freshness dating.

There are alphabets in my oatmeal!
‘C’ is the first letter of my first name! My last name, too!
What can it mean?

It’s hard to admit, but not all eggs are sticky.
In fact, some of the first ones I encountered as a child were
green. And I got to see them up close and up sized today at Universal Studios.
If you didn’t get the reference, it’s from Dr. Seuss’ amazing
Green Eggs and Ham.
Even if you did get the reference, it might be surprising to discover that it is a food stand.

After being dumped, Tan Shen from Chengdu, China spent a week in her local Kentucky Fried Chicken.
She initially wanted some chicken wings and a quiet place to think. But then she ended up staying day after day in the 24-hour-a-day restaurant, which attracted media attention.
She eventually lost her taste for chicken, quit her job and went to visit her parents. I’m sure she realized her mistake….
Taco Bell would have been so much better.

Tis’ the season for all things Halloween…
candy corn bagel?
Yes, that is the super-shiny, garishly colored baked product on the left.
It’s sold, of course, at a bakery in my beloved adopted hometown of New York City.
Now, I love a theme, but this bagel just looks
wrong to me. But before I pass judgment, I wanted to get your thoughts.

Living a block from Central Park in Manhattan, I’ve been known to get a bit grouchy come Saturday morning when yet
another group of runners clog the streets and walkways and generally disrupt my morning walk.
Don’t they know we dog people own the park?
But today there was a run that even I can get behind —
The New York City Cupcake Run
This 5 kilometer (3.1 mile) race for people of all ages challenges participants to go the distance while stopping to eat three cupcakes at checkpoints along the course. Tasty!
Plus, a portion of the proceeds benefits
New York Cares.
And if that isn’t reason enough to love this non-traditional charity event, here’s one of my favorites —
It’s run in Astoria.
