I have this deer-in-headlights look when asked what I do professionally.
Why, you might ask?
Because my work day is filled with awesome things like this:
Which leads to awesome things like this:
Me: So the book in the image….Is THAT the EXACT one being given away? The one smashed up against your privates? Just curious.
Avitable: Actually, Ree [the author] is going to send those out to the winners directly. I’ll auction mine off for thousands of dollars later, though.
Yeah, I get paid for this.
It’s great, but not so easy to explain.
Oh, and if you want a chance to win a new copy of Ree Drummond’s cookbook (read: not a copy smashed up on Avitable’s junk), go visit Avitable’s site. The contest runs until May 1, 2012. While you are there, read all the articles in the sidebar under the heading The One Where I. Next move on to read all the Dead Celebrity Interviews. Actually, just read everything and subscribe to his RSS feed so you don’t miss a single post.
As for the special copy from Avitable, don’t even consider trying to out-bid me on the auction for it. That book is mine.
