Inside the Yellow House in the Washington Post Express!

So I'm on the Metro this morning on my way to work, merrily making my way through the Express.  (For those of you not from D.C., the Express is a free newspaper published by the Washington Post that distills the day's news down to the highest highlights.)  Anyway, I'm flipping through the paper and I pause on the "Blog Log," which is where they post quotes they've pulled from bloggers about (mostly) what's going on in the pop culture world.

I notice that there's something about the Post's Peeps diorama contest.   I read that the blogger doesn't "know how people come up with this stuff, but [she's] so glad they do."  "Wow," I think to myself, "that sounds eerily similar to what I wrote yesterday."  Then I do a double-take and am stunned to see that it IS what I wrote yesterday. 

That's right, the Post apparently enjoyed my coverage of the contest.  I was so surprised that I started laughing out loud on the Metro.

The real irony here is that I rarely pick up the Express when I take the Metro because I get the Post at home.  And this morning, I was this close [fingers held together] to taking a cab to work because I was running late.  If I'd done either this morning, I would have missed it.  Looks like the stars aligned! 

I'm definitely keeping a copy for my scrapbook!


  1. You are famous! Congratulations!

  2. What a great story! That is so ironic! I love Peeps too! Love & blessings from NC!
