on the left is carolyn kelloggg

at the festival of books

as you may recall, carolyn was the editor of LAist until 6/5/06

in many many ways, if there was no carolyn my life would be radically different.

carolyn stepped down from LAist to persue a masters out in Pittsburgh,

and she was nice enough to recommend me to her bosses (who still havent sold the Ists yet…)

and the rest was history.

carolyn is now the lead blogger for our books blog, Jacket Copy, so i was asking her, and the Books Editor’s wife (on the right) if this weekend was her Super Bowl.

i think she said yes. either way they were both very happy this weekend, and anything that makes Carolyn happy makes me happy since i owe her everything.
