Mister Meatball was just named Best Food Blog by the Portland Phoenix. It's the second year in a row that this has happened. Naturally, I'm honored. Not to mention thrilled.
Mostly, though, I'm astonishingly grateful to the people who made this happen.
Relax, I'm not about to get all gooey on you here. Besides, this will only take a second, I promise.
But facts are facts and here's a big fat one that means a lot to me: This could not have happened without the extraordinary individuals who support this blog—and therefore me—by reading it, commenting on it, telling their friends about it, or just plain "getting" what it's about. They're the ones who voted the blog into the "Best" spot, not me. And no matter how hard I try I won't ever be able to express fully the enormous amount of gratitude and affection that I feel for every one of them.
I mean it.
Thank you all. Very very much.
Okay, I'm done now. If that was too gooey for you, I apologize.
It won't happen again.
I don't think.
