The Yummiest Contest on Earth

Diet, Dessert and Dogs is holding an ultra-amazing giveaway contest.

She's giving away chocolate, AND baked goods--though you can only cash in on the baked goods if you're a TO resident. Best of luck to everyone though, and be sure to check out her blog in general--its pretty great!


As for a personal update: I'm sorry I'm being so bad about it, I really am... I'm at a bit of a crossways in life I suppose.. I'm seeing if I can get more into food photography and at the same time trying to figure out a bajillion other things in life.

The sorority is ridiculus, we just had rigged elections. I don't even care if somehow this post gets back to me, its just insulting being forced to vote when you're only given one candidate and you know even if you vote "no" they'll be put into the position. Don't get me wrong, I love the candidates, but I (and they) find the rigging disgusting.

I met a chef (not even vegetarian..) who I actually really liked, and was excited about doing some food photography with (using a friends digital SLR, how exciting!) but unfortunately he's gone AWOL on me. (I'm a tiny half-asian vegetarian, how scary can that be? Apparently scary enough..)

I'm going to Costa Rica super soon to study tropical ecosystems.

I'm going to the gym every day, and have also taken up Pilates and Belly Dancing--the both of which I love.

I'm hoping to get a job at the lab of my dreams this summer and perhaps into an indepentent study project in that lab next year.

I am eagerly awaiting the summer; its farmers markets, time to cook, and of course--nature!!

xoxo all

Hi Manda,

Sorry to hear about the chef (clearly, he has no taste!). But thanks for the shout-out about the contest--so glad you entered, and good luck! :)
