My friend and I are writing a book — a cookbook of sorts — together. So, we thought it would be fun to simultaneously start a couple of blogs to see what kind of interest we can muster. Sounds reasonable, right?
You might say my friend Deb is the “Yin” and I am the “Yang”. Or perhaps she is the “Yang” and I am the “Yin”. All I know is that we are different.
In person, Deb is relatively quiet with diverse talents -an engineer by training, artistic and an excellent writer. I am outgoing, a former scientist drawn to the corporate world since I couldn’t stand the relative isolation of a laboratory. I am also much more structured and less creative than Deb. So, you’d think we’d complement each other in many ways, right? You’d think our blogs would also be complentary — a bit of my technical foodie stuff and Deb’s engaging creativity, right? Well, I thought so.
So, we linked our blogs.
Good, right? Well, you tell me. Here I am, starting this “serious food” blog — struggling to get some off-the-beaten-path recipes tied to a bit of perspective from my global travels. I link it to Deb’s blog for a bit of counter culture – great writing and humor. Still sounds good, right?
Well, the day before I publish my blog link to friends around the globe, Deb posts this story (photos included) about people with horns coming out of their heads. Doesn’t that sound appetizing? I can’t wait for her next post. Road kill, perhaps? What have I gotten myself in for???!? I’ll bet you can’t wait for the book…..
