And you can be sure I will submit something. Thanks to Audacia Ray for the call.
Speaking of which, I’m reading Sarah Katherine Lewis’s book Sex and Bacon: Why I Love Things That Are Very, Very Bad for Me right now and it’s excellent. There was a chapter called “The Bacon Quotient” (click through to read it) in which she sees just how much bacon she can eat (answer: a lot!). I’ll post a review when I’m done. See sexandbacon.com (what a killer URL!) for more info.
