That's right, my blog received a mention in this month's edition of the Foreign Service Journal. Of course, they listed it as a blog written by a husband and wife team, while I'm pretty sure I should actually have a disclaimer stating "the views on this blog are held only by the wife-half of this diplomatic partnership." My husband is a great editor, and I rarely submit an article for possible publication without getting his input first. But, nope, he doesn't write or edit anything here. Though now that I think about it, he has been know to shake his head and mutter, after a particularly trying China moment "bet THIS makes it on your blog."
So there you have it. You can say you knew me when. I'll just sit here and wait for the millions of fans whom I'm certain are heading my way.
Oh,and my blog-friend Jill made the list, too (can I call you a friend, Jill? I've been a reader long enough, don't you think?). They called her brutally honest. They called her endearing. They said she injects sass and emotion into her blog.
I always wanted to be endearing. To say nothing of sass-injecting. Maybe next year.
