In Case...

  1. In case you were wondering, I spent the better part of an afternoon on the Internet desperately trying to convince myself with research that The Kroenke Group's invoice for $44,000 in sweeping charges was something other than actual sweeping with a broom.  No such luck.
  2. In case you were wondering, we've spied no sweeping at 3601 Buttonwood over the course of the last few days.  Or ever.
  3. In case you were wondering, the only way I would consider paying my .096% pro rata share of the $44,000 sweeping bill is if Dick Van Dyke himself showed up in the parking lot at PJP and sang the "Chim Chim Cheree" sweeping song from Mary Poppins solely for my enjoyment.Mary-Poppins-mv16
  4. In case you were wondering, I'll stop talking about the Great Sweeping Incident of 2015 now.  Unless you want to email me to talk about it.  Or text me.  Or tweet me.  Or Facebook me.  Or Instagram me.  Or come visit me In Real Life.
  5. In case you were wondering, we took our PJP Tasting Party on the road last week to see our friends at  We visited their home office to hang with 24 super fun people who wanted to chill on a Friday afternoon with 15 different types of pies.  Just like our in-store events, we didn't reveal the pie types until after everyone had eaten and made their guesses.  And in the best sort of party, the guests left completely stuffed and with enough leftover pie to last a week.  And we left with the dirty dishes and 24 new friends.  We are calling this whole concept the PJP Roadshow.
  6. In case you were wondering, I have Uptown Funk stuck in my head.  And the saddest thing is that most people who enjoy that song aren't even old enough to remember that Michelle Pfeiffer was at her peak as Stephanie Zinone in Grease 2.  And I'm sorry but Cool Rider is cinematic gold. tumblr_nernfiNy7l1slj0sxo3_500
  7. In case you were wondering, making our weekly To-Do list is keeping us marginally on target with our goals.  Approximately 61% of last week's goals were accomplished and considering one of those goals was "stay focused", we deem it a marginal success.
  8. In case you were wondering, we have a number of PJP baking parties on the books for the coming weekends and it made us think about the masses that want to hang out with us and drink wine and bake pie on an average Friday night (and by masses, I mean all three or four of you).  So on March 13th, make plans with your very favorite person to bake pie, drink wine, and hang out at PJP.  Bring a person you love.  Bring a person you hope loves you.  Bring a person who knows the worst about you and loves you anyway.  Bring a person who loves you and is willing to text you all day about the merits of different dry shampoos, Mr. Big, 6th grade math, childhood homes, and someone who was mean to one of you in 1987.  (In case you were wondering, my bestie just smiled at this.)
  9. In case you were wondering, I used the word "analytics" today in conversation with Behind-The-Scenes-Tech Guru Jason.  Three hours later, he is still mumbling "I can't believe you said 'analytics'."  Between just you and I, neither can I.  Who am I becoming?
  10. In case you were wondering, you can find some other random thoughts I have about life, business, and whatnot on the Inside Columbia webpage.  You would think I would be all out of words after all this...but nope.
