As I was riding the subway to work on Friday morning in a pre-caffeine haze, a woman came up to me. "Are you Laren?" she asked. "Yes." "I thought so. I read your blog all the time." Whoa. I tell ya, that put me in a great mood for the rest of the day. So Nancy, if you're out there, a big shout-out (between the pre-caffeinated state and general subway clatter, I'm still only about 95% sure she said "Nancy," so major apologies if I'm wrong).
