happy valentine's day

Happy Valentine's Day I trust everyone is feeling the love. Today I had something very unexpected for Valentine's -- an interview with a radio station! I received a call yesterday from WJBC AM 1230 in Bloomington, IL asking if I'd be willing to come on the air and talk about an article I wrote on How to Write a Love Letter.

I had a great time chatting with hosts Steve Fast and Beth Whisman and even got to judge a worst pick-up line contest. My choice: What's a girl like you doing in a nice place like this? (And no, you didn't read that wrong, it's a burn AND a bad pick-up line. Kindof appropriate that the winner received a prize pack from Budweiser.)

What a funny, funny world. I don't know which part of the day they're going to podcast but if it ends up being mine I'll post the link. And for anyone who's not feeling it today, here's one Valentine quote we can all get behind "Forget love, I'd rather fall in chocolate."

Yeah! Way to go, Claire!

(Oh, and just to knock out one more stereo type, I was recently told that I love chocolate like a woman. Thought you might like to know that.)

Okay, I had to comment again, because the word verification at the bottum was "fxgggtgl" and I thought that was awesome.

i seriously think about started a blog about word verification almost daily...but then, i dont know how long it would last. but there's some good ones...and i also am afraid of messing up their whole security plan by revealing the pattern or something. anyway, i'm too sleepy to be commenting tonight, but i liked the "fall in chocolate" quote.
