There’s no good, humble way to say this, so I’m just gonna come out with it:
Today was a pretty big day for me, press wise. Why? Two things happened:
1. I had my first published article come out in the print version of Seattle Weekly.
I haven’t seen it yet, because I was at work all day, but my first stop on the way into work tomorrow will be at a paper box (the Weekly is FREE to pick up, so keep your eyes open for those paper boxes on city street corners and outside restaurants) to pick up a few copies to send to my parents, Paul and keep for myself.
(Side note: I also found my Dinner and a Movie article from the Weekly syndicated over at RealBeer.com, which I had no idea existed till now….)
2. I found this little gem on the Interwebulars tonight while I was surfing:
I noticed that Stumptown added my Top 5 Lattes listing from my Seattle Weekly article to their “In the Press” archives. I consider this to be an honor because I really admire the work they do – how seriously they take their coffee, so that we the drinkers, don’t have to! We just get to enjoy our cup of liquid happiness. So, thank you, Stumptown, for putting me “In the Press” and letting people know how a true local feels. I’ve loved your coffee since I took my first sip in the original Division St. garage joint during my college days.
And to top it off, I got all the grocery shopping done for the wedding shower I’m hosting this weekend, then I came home and had an awesome green pepper, tofu Indian dish and finished off the night with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
