So I was perusing my Instagram feed the other day, marveling at Rihanna’s tattoos and wishing I had Jessica Alba’s life:
when suddenly, this spiffy little WordPress notification popped up on my screen:
I was like:
When I started this blog back in September, 2011, I never thought I would convince over 1,000 spambots and members of my immediate family people to subscribe to my nonsense, but somehow, it happened.
….Ok, that’s a complete lie. I totally expected this sh*t to go viral and catapult me into superstardom. I’m talking book deal, my own sitcom, frequent media appearances, plus a line of highly successful licensed merchandise.
I would of course, also become besties with Mindy Kaling and Lena Dunham.
What can I say? I watch too much TV.
Anyway, since none of this has happened (YET), I guess I’ll have to settle for you people.
I could tell you how much all of your likes, clicks and comments have meant to me over the past 18 months, but talk is cheap – so instead, I’mma put my money where my mouth is and say thanks with a
Since I have been going through a bit of a “literature phase” lately and subjecting all of you to my unsolicited book reviews and misguided novel-writing attempts, I figured it was only fitting to give away a (wait for it…) book!
That’s right folks, one lucky reader will receive a copy of the book I’m currently reading:
Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls by David Sedaris
Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls is the newest collection of essays from New York Times bestselling author (and my idol) David Sedaris.
Here is a brief description from his website because, honestly, it’s way too early for me to try to write my own:
From the unique perspective of David Sedaris comes a new book of essays taking his readers on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler’s experiences. Whether railing against the habits of litterers in the English countryside or marveling over a disembodied human arm in a taxidermist’s shop, Sedaris takes us on side-splitting adventures that are not to be forgotten.
Basically, I want to be David Sedaris when I grow up. His book Naked was actually the inspiration for my starting a blog in the first place.
IT ALL COMES FULL CIRCLE, FOLKS!
Anyway, in order to win, all you have to do is leave a comment below answering this question of the day:
What is the best book you’ve read so far in 2013?
