Blatant (Yummy) Product Placement!

So I’m not getting paid to promote products… YET.  That could all change in an instant, and then, I’ll be ready.

lunch 2009-08-10 001Here’s today’s winningest Product Placement combo!

Two SuperPretzels, topped (drizzled) with

Gulden’s Spicy Brown Mustard.  Not available in Canada, but specially imported from Buffalo on our last trip.

And notice the third product placement in the frame?

Yup, my Klean Kanteen (gack – spelling!) filled with yummy, homemade, once-icey iced tea.  KK’s are great for carrying drinks around; not so great at keeping them chilly.  (Oops – Klean Kanteen folks, if you feel like sponsoring my blog, pretend you didn’t hear me say that, or my stickler-cringe about the spelling of both CLEAN and CANTEEN!)

Still, all in all, a most successful snack.  Excuse me while I go nibble it daintily!

(p.s.  They have SuperPretzels, or a similar brand with an O-U hechsher, at Calgary’s Heritage Park.  I leapt from the train and purchased five of them for us to share last Thursday.  After making the dozey employees haul out the huge industrial-freezer-sized box to check the hechsher.  They even came with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce, with a COR right on the label!!!)

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white. Because as everybody knows, Jews control the media. (do we???) If anything, some people say, Jews are over -represented in publishing. And yet. Some definitions are careful not to include people like me. Like this random definition from the State of California which defines underrepresented for some very specific business purposes as: "an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identi
