Thank you, Ingrid, for giving me Anthony Bourdain! (Wait, that doesn't sound right...)

I came home last Friday to a very happy surprise in my mailbox... an autographed picture of Anthony Bourdain! Thank you, Ingrid! :-D Ingrid works for the Travel Channel, and she had gotten in touch with me a couple of months ago asking if I wouldn't mind writing posts about Bourdain's show, "No Reservations." As this is something I kinda sorta did anyways, I said sure. We have Ingrid to thank for the cool preview videos I get before the shows air, and now I am doubly grateful to her for this picture of Bourdain. I am one of Anthony Bourdain's biggest fans (as if you couldn't tell), both of his books and his show. Heck, I even bought his Les Halles recipe book and I can't even cook! But the boyf can, so at least he can put it to good use.

Here are some pictures of me with the picture:

Ignore the shiny monstrosity that is my pre-makeup face.

Here is a close-up so you can see his autograph. I wonder where the picture was taken?

total awesomeness! you look pretty pre-make-up, friend :) i'm so low maintenance that i don't even bother with make-up - it's not allowed at school anyways, and it's terribly expensive - so you ALWAYS look better than me!! :)

i'm sitting in my dining room and i can see a beeg spider sitting close to me. that made me think of you :)

You are so beautiful! Seriously. So beautiful.

How sweet of Ingrid to send you that! Are you going to frame it?!

Aw, thank you, Hannahkins & Lar-Lar! I went to a strict private school growing up that didn't allow make-up either, so I think my total fascination with it now is a direct result of that. :p

And ew, get that beeg spider away! :0

You are more than welcome! You look so natural with that photo in hand, and I don't even mean the pre-make-up!

I'm really happy that you enjoy it, makes my job and my days much more fun.
