Overstimulated

What a weekend... I got to see all those friends I wanted to see and I got to use my EZ Bake oven to bake my owner a delicious cake!


Not only that, but I made a killing on what I charged for the cake, which is the beginning of a wonderful new business that could allow me a little extra pocket money. In fact, I might need to spend my first profits on buying some pockets! This will also allow me a place for my pocket knife, which will be my next purchase.

Between friends, baking, and the birthday party it was hard to do much else. But I also got to race! I usually try to nap in my crate prior to a big race - it's one of my secrets, along with [top secret information removed by editor]. But my mind was doing the racing this time, especially because I was relying heavily on a student workers to do a lot of the party planning:


They did a great job, but they were so small I found I had to micro-manage them. So by the time it was my turn to race, I had to catch a nap at the very last minute. And I do mean the very last minute!


But all in all, it worked out pretty well. Out of 120 dogs, I came in 5th! And when I raced again I came in 5th a second time! I'm still waiting for that third and fourth race... apparently we're on a little break.

I do need to give a bark out to Tula, who apparently did very well. Here's a picture I snapped (yes, yet another little chore I had to tend to) between flour fights and quality control seminars:


Congratulations, Tula! I knew when you signed with Lucy's agent you'd do well - especially with that early morning regiment she puts you through! (Don't think I don't know about the cultish techniques used at her "training camp" - no one should be deprived of that much sleep. I'm planning an expose but I'm still waiting for my mole to send me the secret video tapes.)


So, I had a good time even though now I know what they mean when they say "be careful what you wish for." This weekend might have been better spread out over a whole month! In fact, it might have been better to spread out those 5th place finishes into 5 different 1st place finishes.

At least that's what some of my fans have told me. Here's one of my fans at the beginning of the day... Notice she was a little nervous, knowing I had a lot on my plate... and I don't mean a literal "plate" unfortunately...


But by the end of the day she seemed to wear her cool Smarty Gear a little less boldly...


I'm sorry. I take full responsibility for the actions of my interns and promise to intend to do better next time - specifically, to have more cake to feed everybody and also to hire a bigger crew so I'm not so distracted by seminars, sleeplessness, and incredibly fun times.

Thanks to everyone for coming to the big party!

    Gee Smarty... I'm not sure how the cake could have been much bigger!

    Hey, Smarty - I'm impressed by what you can do with an E Z Bake oven! Would you like to cater my next event? Sorry your weekend was so busy; maybe you can have a nice long nap and some extra cake to make up for it.

    Smarty,

    Is there a place on this site to place an order for a cake? Do you take credit cards? I have my human's here somewhere.

    Love,
    Holly
