up with figs, booga booga
qotd, two on running

shameless self-promotion, 353 in a series + surrealness

Shameless promo: I have two stories in this month's Upstate LifeFor the first, I got to interview one of the Beekman Boys (squee!); for the second, I ran so far away, both night and day.

In surreal news, Amazon recommended my own book to me this morning. What does that mean?

I bet Amazon's matching algorithm was *really* proud of itself.

Evite didn't do so well with me. After I sent out the invitations to my upcoming vegetarian anniversary, the ad that came up was for pork :(

Bacon is the gateway meat, you know.

Heh. One of the tabs I opened earlier today had to do with anti-capitalism. The ad at the top of the screen was for eTrade.

Oooh, we read The Bucolic Plague for book club last spring. I'm going to email a link to your article to the ladies of the club!

(p.s. Thought of you while I was filling my buggy with 22 boxes of pierogies at the Giant Eagle yesterday.)
