Better Blogs Than Mine: Amateur Gourmet

Ok, I’m cheating a little. I was actually “assigned” to read Amateur Gourmet last week for Blog Class.  I didn’t discover it, but I didn’t discover Cake Wrecks on my own, either.  I rely on people better than me to do that for me.  You see, I’m a little bit A.D.D. and better at oral and visual learning.  This is really a pretty fabulous combination of attributes if you’re looking to get nowhere in life.  Luckily, I’m too busy focusing on something else every few seconds to be “looking” to go anywhere.
