Kind of flailing here.

Yesterday I got an email wanting to know about advertising. I get a lot of spam for HDJM and debated replying with our rates, before thinking, eh, go ahead. Well, am I ever happy that I did because it was a rep from Lacoste. So I'm waiting to hear back from them about which option they're going for. *cries* Also, I'm now in need of someone that could show me how to add a banner under the existing banner in my Coraline Theme on wordpress. I need to insert CSS code, I'm pretty sure, but I'm not sure how. I can always look it up, but GOSH it would be great if anyone already knew how?

THEN. THEN!! For those of you that watch SouthLAnd, Shawn Hatosy (Sammy) - his DAD contacted me this morning, thanking me for our recaps, and specifically because we have fans that discuss the show in a positive way. That we're the only recap site he's found that does that. *grateful sobbing* Also, a whole mess of new folks came out of nowhere yesterday and brought up some AMAZING discussion points in comments. I love how smart our readers/commenters are.

TODAY! I have a gaggle of things to look into to get this business to actual make a profit, enough that I can do more than just sustain the site's costs, but pay the wonderful women that write the recaps. (Like that alliteration?) You can always drop a l'il something in the tip jar, or visit our advertiser's websites - which is also a HUGE support to us. (They see we drove you there, they stay with me, I can charge for more ads, etc.)

Also, Top Chef Texas, the Penultimate Ep's recap is up, and I'm not even going to act like I'm not slap happy and went bananas in the recap. :D

Sarah made Five Greens-filled Pasta with Garlic Chili and Spice Sformato/Gin, Kumquats, Mango cocktail (Again, I'd be all over that drink, but that's definitely a summer sip. The Sformato is frozen solid in most cases, and that pissed Gail off. She rolls up her sleeves and threatens Tom with a knife when Tom says, “Well, we said ice!” Gail presses the dull blade to Tom's neck and says it should still be edible. Two security guards pull her back and give her another drink. Emeril is on his fourth and looking rosy-cheeked.)
