"World" Tour, Take #2!

Thursday, October 8, 2009

That's right, Wrecks fans, we are in the process of rescheduling all of the missed stops on the Cake Wrecks "World" Tour! First up is Austin, where John and I will be this Saturday. Yep, never let it be said that we are not devoted to you, our dear, devoted readers. Why, wild strains of bacterial infections cannot keep us away! (Well, not for very long, anyway.)

Click here for details and to RSVP for Austin. Or keep an eye on the right hand sidebar; I'll be updating the links and dates for Kansas City, New York, and Bethesda as I have them.
Karen said...

So glad to hear that you and John are healthy! We eagerly await your arrival in NYC!

Love the new tour logo,

Karen

WV: synxe. The rest of the tour in in synxe.

Anna Kauz said...

Hahaha! I love the new logo :)

Glad to hear John is feeling better!

John and Sarah Sperry said...

LOVE the new logo!! Very happy to hear that John is on the mend and you are doing well!!

Jolene said...

LOVE the erm, additions (?) to the logo...I was one of the lucky to see you in Denver before disaster struck the tour...I only wish you easy flights, restful nights and no book fights! (ok, I was on a cheesy roll there...had to finish it out!)

Glad to hear you guys are feeling better!!

Jolene

PS: For John:

What are the two sexiest animals in the barnyard?

A brown chicken and a brown cow!

BROWNCHICKENBROWNCOW!! (Say it fast...it's funny, I swear! Oh never mind...lol)

Godspeed!!!!

I'm so glad you and John are surviving!

Even though I live in Seattle, I wish I could come and give you both all my love in Dallas.

You are amazing.

Natalie said...

The tour logo is epic! Well done, and I'm so glad to hear you're back.

You know, LA has some really interesting strains of bacteria, in case you're interested. And, you know, um, we share. So, what's one more stop, right?

Girl With Curious Hair said...

Glad you're back on tour--even if you're not coming to San Diego.

I also love the new tour logo.

Good to know that you and John are ok now. =D

Wow, you guys are resilient! Glad to hear John is feeling better and you're getting back to the tour. (Love the wounded carrot jockey.) Although I am a bit disgruntled that you're not coming to Ohio.

WV: Borkers - What you have to be to go on a book tour while recovering from a wild strain of bacterial infection and a nasty head bonk.

Soten/Shinku-Ha said...

I'm glad you guys are back on track,and nobody lost limb, life, or broke any fingernails and I'm gonna pretend that my two humourless ( despite being heartfelt- but what does that count for these days?) posts helped and feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Beyond that, I'm sad you guys rescheduled Austin when you did. I'll be 6 Hours away in a very small, non-cakewrecked town. Granted, the weekend after that i have to hope and pray that as the curtain goes up on our play the set doesn't kill anyone, so i guess fate was against me getting to have a cakewrecks day.

I was really looking forward to it, so i guess this means you guys have to write another book and come back to Austin.
Hope Austin is your best stop,

Love, The Girl Who Writes Too Much.

So glad y'all are better. Are y'all sure y'all are better enough? Don't want any relapsing.

I hope you take along a personal physician to keep you going through the shows! Just not that guy that Michael Jackson had.

WVW: expre. That which used to come before.

Thank goodness John's okay!!!
Please please please PLEASE come to Hollyweird.
We'd love to have you(:

I love the new logo! I think I might like it better than the first one...
I am so very glad that you guys are doing better. I guess my positive vibes through cake wreck book reading at the office worked! Yes you read that correctly, I read cake wrecks to my coworkers every day! They tease me when I say "do you want that on a cake? I am sure I can find one on cake wrecks!!"

Mama On The Move said...

When are you coing to Hawaii?? We have bookstores here too you know!

srb said...

I'm very glad that John is getting better quickly! I'm also glad- though not quite as much- that you'll be rescheduling your Bethesda stop.
And the new logo is awesome. The main reason for me commenting is to strongly urge you to sell that on tshirts.
Need me to beg? I'll beg for this. :)

Aviatrix said...

You people are as relentless as a CCC maker with an airbrush.

Jessy said...

Okay - you have to make the new logo available on zazzle!!

Be sure you guys are taking it easy and taking care of yourselves!

Matt said...

Any chance of making it to Phoenix? I didn't see it mentioned on the original list of stops.

Anonymous said...

New logo! Especially cute little hospital bracelet!

All the best for the rest of the tour - protective prayers ordered, guardian angels ready for deployment, universe told to watch out!

Glad everyone is feeling better. Take care and don't push it too hard, 'kay?

WV: distersp What a urine sample is from a dizzy blonde. "That distersp sure was cloudy!"

Anonymous said...

Delurking again to say how glad I am that you're both OK! It was lovely to see you in Chicago, and I hope the rest of Tour 2.0 is fun (and uneventful!)

I dunno though, you guys may want to consider bubble wrap or something for the rest of the tour... :)

Cheers, Katie

Katie said...

Glad to hear that everyone's on the mend! Congratulations on the success of the book!

Abby said...

This is very exciting. I am so glad that John is okay--he's been on my mind. Actually, mostly his infections have been on my mind--I work in infectious diseases.
best,
Abby in Bethesda

Take care and don't strain yourself too hard! :)

Melby said...

haha, the logo is hilarious. That's great you're able to reschedule and continue the tour! =)

Glad to hear that John is making a speedy recovery and can add his commentary on your book tour stops.

I hope there's a baker there who can make a 'Get Weel Soon' cake for the rest of your book tour locations!

All the best from your fans from Australia. Wish you were coming to visit us!

Denise said...

It's awesome to see you all healthy again, back up and on the roll again!

The logo change is adorable. I hope everything goes well this time. :)

Terry Lee said...

how adorable is that wounded carrot jockey baby!!! too cute and perfect.

i admire y'all's tenacity at getting back on the trail, however i worry (it's the nurse and mom in me) that you're pushing yourselves too quickly.

however, i continue to pray for strength and good health for both of you as you wreck on. :-)

sadly, i won't be able to make it this saturday (am frickin' bummed) due to previous travel plans.

all my best to the both of you!!

terry lee

Misty said...

I cannot believe you're continuing the tour so soon! I hope you two can take it easy sometimes. You guys need a fancy tour bus to be taking you to all these places in ease and luxury. Of course, then there would be that stinky bathroom thing...

I'm hoping I can come see you this Saturday in Austin!

Katie Bug said...

Your new graphic is hilarious!

Katz said...

I'm so glad you guys are doing better. Hope you can make it to Bethesda before I move.

Lynn said...

I'm so glad everyone is doing better! I've been praying so much for you guys! I'm glad you're going to do the rest of the tour! Be careful not to go back to it too fast, everyone will understand!!

But I think you should redo Orlando again, because I missed it :( LOL

So glad that John's out of the hospital! Have fun on the rest of the tour!

Kaye Prince said...

Wow, I can't believe you guys are back on tour so soon; way to go! I'm really glad that John is doing better - I'm sure everyone is going to be so happy that the tour is continuing!

sallahdog said...

I am so glad!!! I was online to see you at KC, so hopefully you can make that stop! your health is most important though, so glad your both doing better... This blog is one I stop at every morning, or just when i need a chuckle (which has been all too often lately)...

First time posting but just wanted to say so glad you guys are feeling better and able to carry on with the tour.

Based in the UK, I'm relying on your reports and pics.

You never fail to cheer me up with your sarky comments and pics.

Take care,

The artwork was just the smile I needed this morning. Glad John is feeling better.

I agree with Karen - the new logo rocks. You two have the best sense of humor. I'm glad John is better. Now I have to see you when you come to nyc!

Thank goodness that John's okay, and making a remarkably fast recovery from those infections! I would never have expected the tour to start again so soon.

Good luck and stay healthy!

The new logo made me laugh out loud for real! That's the spirit! Don't overdo it now, make sure you two get plenty of rest!

WV: cherier- I am much cherier to hear y'all are feeling better.

OMG, I LOVE your updated carrot jockey logo! That is freaking hysterical - and oh so appropriate!

Good luck on Saturday! And for God's sake, stay out of the hospital this time!! :)~

Flartus said...

Are you trying to kill John?? Poor baby...love the Bruised Baby logo, though!

I tell ya, this little cake blog sure hasn gotten exciting lately. Still, I wish John a complete recovery (and Jen continued good health!).

Jen & John,
Your graphic truly cracked me up. Does Ray get credit for this masterpiece?

Be careful and don't overdo, k? You'll give all of us wreckies a complex.

Woot! Even though you're not coming anywhere near me, I'm so happy for both of you that you're able to resume the trip. Love the logo!

I soooooo wish you would come to Nashville. But in the meantime I'll content myself with keeping up with your adventures on the blog. Continued get well wishes sent your way!

Yay on John being better! My daughter says the first one is the sun setting in the horizon and glowing over the ocean, with sand in the foreground. I guess the squeezy cheez things up top could be clouds. No clue about the Life Savers! The third one....beach umbrella? No clue on the others.

Gary said...

The new World Tour (or "World Tour") logo is the best logo evah! Evah! I wish I could go to Austin Saturday, but I'm scheduled to work all day.

Lisa said...

good grief do you never rest!!! LOVE the new world tour logo. So perfect. I'm so glad to hear you are both feeling better and are up to a tour stop.

Wow, you guys are troopers! I'll keep you in my prayers that no more "unexpected" things happen.

I LOVE the new logo! Can we copy it for our books? purty please?

Glad you're feeling up to it.

I love your site!! I discovered your it the day before you were scheduled to be in Bethesda, and was upset because I wouldn't be able to attend.. I am so happy that you and John are doing ok, but I am also excited that this tour date got pushed back! I would love to be able to see you guys when you finally come. Best of luck!

Carolyn said...

Jen, you are insane. And amazing. Please let us know what we can do to help you out, if there's any kind of fundraiser for John's medical bills or anything.

Cyndilou :) said...

Really glad to hear that John is feeling much better! Sad because I will be out of town this weekend and will miss your Austin appearance. :( At least I get to vicariously participate through the blog!

Amanda in Austin said...

You need to make shirts out of that new logo. AWESOME.

Gina said...

I wish you could come to New Haven, CT, at the Yale Bookstore or something, where we would love to be visited by you (for your next world tour, I mean).

Bec said...

So glad you are both feeling better! Can't wait to see you in Kansas City!

Ditto all of the good thoughts!

WendyMom said...

Jen and John- I am en-ex ICU nurse and I just had to write and throw my 2 cents in- PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE be very cautious and careful in your travel plans!! Septicemia is no joke, and you are very lucky to have escaped it as well as you did. John will be weak for some time yet, and needs to take frequent rest brakes. Much less it being flu season- not a good time to be traveling all around, exposing ones self to all those nasty bugs while still recovering from such a nasty illness.

OK, I'll get off my soap box now and just say I'll pray for you and your health. God bless--

P.S. You guys are hysterical, and I love the site!

The Black Dog said...

That new logo is pretty freaking awesome. I hope that future bakers who are making baby mohawk carrot jockeys for these events are going to add that black eye and arm in a sling

Linda said...

Glad to hear you are both on the mend and back to touring! I like your recovering mowhawk baby in the logo..lol

Krusho said...

New logo for the (epic) WIN!

lizzied said...

Woo hoo! You guys ROCK.

Crystal said...

John your dedication is amazing!!!

Is there anyway you could add a stop in Santa Barbara, CA? I know alone in my work there are over a dozen wreckie fans.

Good Luck on the tour and this time lets make sure the only pain involved stems from laughing so hard your stomach hurts.

Jack said...

Congrats to John on kicking the bacteria to the curb! I'm glad you're both doing well, and I'm SO glad that you'll still be coming to New York. Maybe with the new date, I'll be able to BE there! :D I mean, especially because the new logo is so cute. ;)

Jen said...

Bless your sweet, fondant covered hearts! Good for you for pushing forward like gooey, wrecky pioneers. So, patch the holes in your shoes with a cupcake and finish that tour! (but take it easy, would ya?)

Anonymous said...

It's really great to hear that John is doing better, and congrats on being able to continue the tour (and thanks for still wanting to!). I'm looking forward to seeing the rescheduled KC date. I couldn't have gone on Monday, but maybe I'll get to see you after all!

Ok, the new logo is AWESOME. Just... AWESOME. Love it! Wish I could make it to Austin, but it's just a wee bit out of my driving range. Too bad it's not San Antonio. Maybe next time; a girl can hope!

WATERBABY CHRISTINE said...

Hold on there, buckeroos. What doctor thought that continuing the "World Tour" constituted rest and relaxation? Are you out of your rabbit-assed minds? And both of you better be wearing surgical masks! Especially John whose immune system must be nonexistent. And make him wear a motorcycle helmet too. Are elbow and knee pads necessary as well?

Jackie Peniuk said...

OMG That carrot jockey logo is hysterical!

I'm glad to hear John's doing better, and you're rescheduling... but wouldn't it be a BETTER world tour if you came to Las Vegas? Puhleease?

I was lucky enough to see you two in Portland before all the illness, and I can assure your fans it is worth the wait!
Wishing you an uneventful rest of the tour---you deserve it!

debbo said...

So glad to hear you are both feeling better. I send you best wishes for the tour redux. Please don't try to do too much too soon. I speak with heartfelt concern and experience as someone who regretfully ignored following the doc's cautionary words after a bout with pneumonia.... I thought I was invincible but time and those lingering infectious bugs proved otherwise and led to a major relapse.
WV: wousines Please take a well deserved rest if you are experiencing any wousines.

Cake_or_Death said...

So glad John is feeling better and the tour is back on - not that you're coming anywhere near the god-forsaken hellhole where I reside. Not that I blame you either.

The new logo is just begging to be slapped on t-shirts and tote bags! I want it!

You guys are TOUGH, man! Maybe for this part of the tour, you can get limo's and hand-servants. Seriously, ask your publishers!!! All in the name of recuperation :)

Thank you for thinking of us and continuing the tour, but don't forget to think of yourselves. We don't want you to burn out just yet, I'd have nothing to do at work!
