I am fighting against the cLock, peopLes, but I just wanted to say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to aLL of our friends, foLLowers and fans who heLped us truck up to this point.
First of aLL, I want to thank EDDIE LIN from DeepEndDining for his super sweet birthday card.Â Among aLL of his amaaaaaaazing achievements — like, his superbLy written bLog, his stint at KCRW’s Good Food and PUBLISHING HIS OWN BOOK — he reaLLy was one of the very first peopLe to try our tacos at our tasting a year ago and has stuck by us ever since.Â I remember sending out a baziLLion emaILs to food bLoggers up and down the left coast and, lo and behoLd, by some miracLe, one of my favorite ones was the onLy one who responded.Â And CAME!!!Â The rest is history.Â Thank you, thank you, thank you, mah friend.Â A lot’s happened in ths last year and I’m so gLad we made it.
My 2nd thank you goes to Erica and Daphne (aka LeKogirL) for this fantabuLousLy faBOOSH T-Pain-inspired birthday video:
You ladies are hirarous and reaffirm my dogged beLief that we seriousLy can’t take ourseLves too seriousLy.Â EVER.Â @LekogirL — I’m so gLad I got to meet you on HaLLoween.Â You truLy are our #1 fan on Twitter — and beYOND.Â (( H U G ))Â And Erica — you’re quite awesome as weLL.
