Yesterday morning, I was sitting down to eat breakfast, flipping through the newspaper... (I have a newspaper reading system wherein I make myself read all the front page sections first before I can read the fun sections and the FUNNIES! ) So, I was happy about arriving at the Wednesday Food & Wine section... when I opened the page to discover a picture of myself!! There was a sweet little article about this very blog! You can read the story here. All this was the work of my super cool Mom. Thanks Mom!
Next! Imagine my surprise when I got some comments from you, my gentle readers*, congratulating me on being in the paper before I had even blogged about it! I was totally confused, until I saw an email from Erik Marcus (aka "Speedy Gonzales") over at vegan.com, that he had already found out about the article and posted about it! He beat me to the punch! Vegan.com is a super great site, so I was pretty psyched to have my humble blog make an appearance there.
And, that's not all... I had one more wonderful surprise this morning when I sat down to do some morning surfing. I had two comments from Vicki and Melisser congratulating me on winning the Cafe VegNews contest! How fun! It's so fun to win something, especially from my all-time most favorite-ist magazine!! I can't wait to see what they send me... I'll be sure to blog about it.
* I love the way Miss Manners calls her readers "Gentle Readers." I suppose that makes me a dork, but so be it!
Oh, and that food photo? It's my breakfast of a big fantastic mango and a bowl of oatmeal with walnuts, dried wild blueberries, molasses, and a dash of agave nectar. That breakfast kept me going for hours!!
