Road Trip Wednesday: Your DUFF Kit

Kate Hart
In honor of the release of THE DUFF by the lovely Kody Keplinger, we're packing our DUFF kits for this week's road trip.

What are DUFF kits?
"...comforting little collections that you can use on a relaxing night either alone or with friends. Things that are purely comfortable and fun and require zero pressure to be the prettiest in the room or the smartest or the funniest."
How do you make one? Put together:
1. Your favorite (very caloric!!!) drink
2. Your most comfy and old shoes
3. Movies featuring your favorite male actor
4. Your favorite junk food
5. Your most comfortable piece of clothing

So! Here's mine.

1. Depending on the mood, I'm either bringing Dr Pepper or ameretto sours.

2. Night in = no shoes. But I can't find a picture of feet that doesn't freak me out.

3. I'm really not a romantic comedy fan, so you can probably guess what I'm bringing...
(hint: "we're not worthy! we're not worthy!" OR "we are really really really really ridiculously good looking.")

4. Popcorn on the stove + something chocolate. Maybe some mocha almond fudge ice cream?

5. Ah, yoga pants. How do I love thee, let me count the ways. 


Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate!


  1. Mmmmm...mocha almond fudge ice cream. Delicious.

  2. I love Diet Dr Pepper.

    I'm still waiting for the bookstores here to get THE DUFF, and for my pre-order to be sent. At least they didn't wait to send MOCKINGJAY with it. I should be getting that book any day now. YAY!

  3. So shocked by your movie choices :P

  4. I'm totally with you on the "no shoes" policy. Bare is beautiful. :)

  5. thanks for not putting feet up!
    Yoga pants are the best!!!

  6. More comfy pants. I think it should be a rule that we're allowed to wear comfy pants ANYWHERE and ANYTIME.

  7. I adore my yoga pants. That's probs what I'll be wearing, too, should I ever get around to my DUFF kit post. Also, comedy FTW!!!!! I'll bring Best In Show for highbrow comedy in between the other two. :P Gotta shake things up a bit.

    wv: oatapdy n. A suave name for the one who just tapped that.

    Gansta 1: Yo, you get wit' Carla last night?
    Gansta 2: You know it, boyz. I be getting some kinda this uhn uhn and that uhn uhn wazzuuuuupp!!
    Gansta 1: Oooo, OOOOHH!!!! Boy done getz his oatapdy on!!!!

  8. Yoga pants with no shoes YES. I should have added orange mocha frappucino to my kit!

  9. I am all over Best in Show. Also The Royal Tennenbaums.

    Sorry I've been so slack about commenting on everyone's RTW posts- I'm going to try to make the rounds this evening!
