Speaking of things that make me happy...a cupcake vending machine. Awesome! New Yorkers now have a way to get a cupcake at any time of the day or night, whenever the need for a little bit of cake and frosting strikes, with the opening of a Sprinkles cupcake ATM this week in Manhattan. Buyers choose from nine flavors -- black & white, chocolate coconut, Cuban coffee, dark chocolate, lemon meringue, red velvet, strawberry, vanilla and vanilla milk chocolate -- and then just swipe their credit card, at a cost of $4.25 per cupcake. Just 10 seconds later, a small door next to the screen rises and the cupcake is there in a single-serving box. The ATM is restocked several times a day to make sure the cupcakes are fresh. This actually isn't the first cupcake ATM; there are others in cities including Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta, Las Vegas and Beverly Hills...what no Martinsburg yet? What up with dat?
Wouldn't it be nice if there were vending machines for things we really NEED? Here are 11 things we need in a vending machine. Can I get an Amen on the fingernail polish?
6:45 My adventures working at the Weinberg Center and meeting Roseanne Cash. Last night, Roseanne Cash came and played an amazing concert with her husband John Leventhal. They were just fantastic. Her voice is wonderful, they play and work so well together and the stories that she told about how she came to her new album The River and the Thread, were just so engaging. At the end of the night, you know me, I needed to get a selfie. Also in the picture is her talented husband John Leventhal, and my friend Elizabeth. Ha.

7:45 JUNEAU BACONFEST celebrates it's 2nd year. Awesome!
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Bacon. Bacon. And even more bacon. The meat treat was celebrated at Alaska's second annual Juneau Baconfest. Not all the bacon there was for eating though, some was for wearing. Model Amy George wore a five pound bacon bustier. She says it was actually pretty comfortable. It was created by artist Lauralye Miko, who used pre-cooked bacon. Miko says the tough part was trying to keep her cats away as she made the bacon bustier. The Capital City Weekly reports Baconfest is a fundraiser for the Glacier Valley Rotary.
8:15 Today in History in 1778- Oliver Pollock, a New Orleans businessman, created the dollar "$" symbol. Or I think so. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dollar_sign
