What kind of lives are we living? Anne and I were just mentioned by the New York Times via Twitter. This is the coolest thing ever!!!
So, when I woke up this morning (read: noon), Anne burst into my room complaining about the New York Times expose on cheese usage in America. Apparently, the government is concurrently warning Americans that too much cheese in a diet is bad for you (sodium, fats, whatever) while also pushing restauranteurs to add more cheese to their meals. The day anyone figures out what the government is trying to accomplish there I’ll worry about it.
Anyway, Anne does ridiculous things like this all the time. This article, combined with her severe disdain for cheese, made for a hilarious moment. She was all afluster and began gesticulating wildly and speaking emphatically about, well, cheese.
Of course this prompted me to tweet about it. Because, you know, just saying:
Roommate just burst into my room screaming: “Molly! There is an expose in the New York Times about CHEESE!… Cheese kills!”#whatismylife?
is not really worthy of its own blog post. Agreed? Well, it wasn’t until I was retweeted by the New York effing Times!!! That’s right, check it out:

Okay, well it turns out that the guy who retweeted dear Anne and myself does not actually work for the New York Times. In fact, he is a newsroom developer at the Denver Post. But still, kind of cool.
