aNd thE wiNeER iS . . .

so here's the thing:
my random number generator wouldn't work.
he only generated names.
and he wasn't random.
so erin, that means your bike name,
was herb's favorite!

it took some thinking . . .
the perfect gift for the give away.

for awhile, i was going to do a truck stop gift bag
but that got old after awhile.
and really, how do you box up a turquoise cow girl hat?

i looked for cool island souveniers
and island-y coffee mugs.
i even considered doing a t-shirt
but i knew that it was no longer 1987
and that a t-shirt with a sea shell embroidered on it
would not be considered "happy mail"
but rather, "where in the world do i put THIS?" mail.

but then i remember this book.

herb and i started reading it together this spring.
we have yet to finish, but so far, it is thought provoking and funny.
it sort of fits.
the authors ate, for a year, only foods that came from 100 miles or less of their home.
and the coolest?
they live up in this part of the world.
(though technically, they are in another country.
but then again, if you go to the north side of the island,
you can see canada.
so there you go)

it fit with the bike give away - and the strides we are all making
to leave a lighter footprint behind.
it fit with the fact that i am cooking like a madman these days
and thinking a lot more about food and body.

so, erin h., if you are out there, email me with your address and this bad boy
(and maybe a little something i found at a truck stop in wyoming)
will be on its way to your home!

thanks for playing, everyone!

I'll have to check that book out. I've been making an effort to buy locally but if you miss the farmers market, you're screwed. I found your blog via SIStv weight loss challenge and I'm glad I ventured over. Great blog.
