The tragic lot of the early adopter

So, I won this First Annual Lulu Blooker Prize, for books from blogs? Great honor, inconceivably wonderful, the $2,000 in prize money just lovely icing on the cake? Yes?

The prize for the 2007 Second Annual Lulu Blooker Prize? $10,000.

But I'm not bitter. In fact I am so not bitter that I am a judge. So get those books written and send them on over to: http://www.lulublookerprize.com/

Maybe I can see about getting you that $10,000 I didn't get.

Julie,
I just picked up your book the other day and am loving it. You are hysterical. Liz

Hmm. You should suggest a "judging fee" ;)

Congrats. And totally deserved.

I mainly just love that there's something called Lulu Blooker. And that it's a prize.

Plus, no matter what, you'll always be the inaugural Lulu. And you really can't put a price on that.

You're like the valedictorian of LuLu Blookers. You LuLu you.

Judging is a pretty shibby deal, I mean, you're going to have a real impact on someone's life. I'm very happy for you!

P.S. Write a follow up book about the Post Julie / Julia era. I want to read again about the "pea-ness" and all your other adventures!

Hey Julie- Loved the book, love Buffy,and happen to be a chef who learned just like you- at home, swearing, sweating and enjoying every small victory. Aren't dogs the best? Cooking and dogs and great husbands beat depression every time! Keep up the cooking, and the writing, and I plan on being a new fan. Wish I wasn't so late- but at least I'm here now. Hey, loved you on Iron Chef- is Bobby the misogynist he seems to be? Just wondering...

Hi Julie,
Loved the book - a real page-turner! I definitely agree with garrett that you should write a follow-up.....

Cheers.

I would love to get the prize myself, but I fear that I am too new a thing to even think about it.

Just click on my name for this post, Julie, and give me your opinion.

Thanks!
