Vote Early, Vote Often...

So, J&J has been nominated for two Quills Awards - best debut book and best cooking-related book. I'm up against Julia Child, Bill Buford, AND Rachel Ray, so I'm not optimistic, but what the hell... And it's a people's choice type deal, so you can help! Vote here:

Help me, Bleaders, you're my only hope!

So here's the stupid thing. When the Iron Chef America episode I appeared in aired, I didn't get it taped. (In fact I didn't even watch it - still haven't.) And no one I know has maintained a tivoed copy. And now real actual people want it, and badly. The Iron Chef America tape is my letter of transit, and I need it! So here is my plea: if you have it, may I have a copy? Just post a comment, and I'll get in touch with you, and pay for a copy. Pretty please with frozen peas on top?

The tragic lot of the early adopter

So, I won this First Annual Lulu Blooker Prize, for books from blogs? Great honor, inconceivably wonderful, the $2,000 in prize money just lovely icing on the cake? Yes?

The prize for the 2007 Second Annual Lulu Blooker Prize? $10,000.

But I'm not bitter. In fact I am so not bitter that I am a judge. So get those books written and send them on over to:

Maybe I can see about getting you that $10,000 I didn't get.
