i have decided to go forth with the business, if only to have something to write off on the taxes...but hopefully it'll mean more. now i have to get to work. i need the kitchen certified and i need a name. since i can't start on getting the kitchen certified until it's got like water and electricity, i have to work on the name thing. so i can start on the website and the catalogue and the professional image/shameless self promotion. i need a domain name and i need a trade name, it would be super cool if they were the same and if they were free of use on the web and or the state of maine. oh, and it should be clever or meaningful or appropriate. i've got till matt forks up ten grand for the electricity to figure it out.*
keeping in mind that maine is home to "curl up and dye" and "hair force one" as profitable businesses (maybe i should go to beauty school) anything goes. i don't want it to be too curl up and dye-esq. i wager not many hostesses would like to say their desserts came from XXX Hot Buns! XXX. clever and respectable wrapped up in one would be good. if anyone has any ideas within those limited quidelines and you promise not to sue me, feel free to share them. if i choose it and you're amenable, i'll send you some cookies. or a bar harbor t-shirt. everyone loves a bar harbor t-shirt.
in other news mr. s. crook is correct in saying stress is a kickass diet. i'm at my lowest weight since starting this blog and it's only been a few days of anxiety. rock on! better than a tape worm. (no points for submitting "better than a tape worm" as a slogan, it's all mine.)
*ten grand, that's a lot you say? welcome to maine.
