It’s been a whole year since I became half of myself! While the last couple months have been tough – changing jobs, fighting the winter blahs, and experiencing train-gain – I can still stand naked on that scale in the morning and weigh-in under 186. I only ask that you respect my modesty and not actually imagine me standing naked on the scale in the morning.
Monday night, Michael Pollan will be speaking at Butler University here in Indianapolis. Pollen wrote The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals and recently released In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto which are all about food, which you should all know I am a fan of. I had the full intention of reading these books before attending the lecture tomorrow night, but unfortunately this requires actually scanning the words with my eyes as I flip pages and not just setting the book on the shelf I have entirely dedicated to my library books. (Confession: I am the world’s slowest reader.) So, if anyone actually has read these books, feel free to post any questions you’d like me to try to ask Mr. Pollan. I don’t know if I’ll actually get to ask him anything, but if I do I’d love to pretend to know what I’m talking about.
I have already notified and received confirmation from Andrea and Laura, two winners of the Everlast tank top giveaway. However, the third winner, Wilma (who’s email address starts with the letters “whov”) has not yet replied to my e-mails. Wilma, where are you? If you are reading this please e-mail me from your winning address so I can mail you your prize. Otherwise I’m going to draw another name.
