Greetings from (mostly) sunny Northern California! I'm enjoying a lovely vacation at my parents' pad out here, indulging in glorious foodie experiences such as Chez Panisse and the Ferry Building in San Francisco. I'll tell you all about it when I get back!
For now, I'll leave you with the winner of the Celestial Seasonings care package. According to the Parental Integer Generator (aka PIG, or Dad, as the case may be), the winner is #43, Cheryl F. (The Lucky Ladybug)! Cheryl, email your mailing address to diana at soapandchocolate dot com and I will pass it on to the Celestial Seasonings folks.
As promised, I will also reveal which of my lies was actually true. There were definitely a couple people who guessed correctly, but it would appear that most of you give me too much credit where "acting appropriately" is concerned.
It was the wee hours of the night in Madrid sometime in early 2004 when I was schmoozing with my fellow exchange students (as well as some choice natives) in a small park...which shall go unnamed to protect its dignity. :) Box of wine in hand, I heard nature's call loud and clear, despite being rather inebriated at the time. One of my buddies was feeling a similar urge, so we ducked behind a convenient row of shrubbery and took turns keeping watch as we popped a squat and relieved ourselves. To my knowledge, the only one who noticed was the statue of Cervantes.
So there's the truth: I have peed in public.
Can you do me one better???
