By the way, I just discovered that I missed National De-Lurking Day. (Who knew there even was such a thing?) Apparently you, yes you, the one with the unbrushed teeth and the holey underwear, were supposed to leave me your first-ever comment on January 14th. So let’s just pretend I didn’t miss it, and add in a little Haiti fundraising while we’re at it. For every comment I receive here by this Friday, January 22, I’ll donate $5 to Partners in Health. Go ahead, introduce yourself at last. I’d love to meet you, even if you do wear holey underwear. Heck, so do I.
ETA a few hours later… It’s been pointed out to me that I’m not made of money and I posted this on the Internets, where there are, y’know, bajillions of people. So I must add a caveat that at some point, when my wallet begins to weep, I’ll be capping this.

I'm in. Go!
I have missed this day for two years now. Three? How long has it been around?
am I the first to comment? I think it's super generous of you to do this!!
Does it count if I've commented before? Either way, what a generous and kind gesture. I love the blog and your giving spirit.
Fantastic! Hope you raise lotsa ca$h.
Wow, I missed that day too – in fact I never knew of it 🙂 Anyway – long time reader here, but I rarely comment.
Hi Debbie! *wave*
I, too, applaud your generosity. May you and your family have a wonderful 2010. I live in Fuquay Varina, NC.

Just discovered your blog from a RT about your $5 to Haiti plan. Debbie, you (and your blog) rock!
btw, have you seen this – http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2010/01/the_devil_writes_pat_robertson.html?sc=fb&cc=fp – as amusing as anything under the circumstances.
i wrote a comment on your post about foodies with picky eaters, but way after the fact, so i'm guessing you didn't see it. is that still of interest?
Wow. $5 a comment is huge. Good for you.
Love your blog!
I'm a child-free lurker that luvs ya! lol
Am I a lurker if I just started reading recently? Either way, thanks for the donation for Haiti. I think it's great.
Go, you! PiH is my favorite charity, bar none.
I'm delurking for a good cause. Thanks for doing this. 🙂
I guess I'm not technically a lurker, but I love your blog and applaud what you're doing! Keep up the awesome posts.
I hope you get to raise a lot of money for Haiti! It is so kind of you to have something like this.
I missed it this year, but did it least year. Too many things to keep track of. 🙂 Good for you for the per comment donation – that's awesome!
This is a brilliant and generous idea, Debbie!
This is my first comment (just discovered you recently, but I'm normally a lurker on blogs anyway). It is nice to read your posts- to delight in a beautiful food moment. Thanks! Keep on keepin lady. -Teresa in FL
I've been lurking for a LONG time! Gosh, I think I googled for a cookie recipe and your blog came up. I added the feed to my RSS thingiemadoo and noticed you never seemed to post. It seemed like a year or so before you came back and started to post, but I'm probably exaggerating! 🙂
Your blog sometimes makes me wish I'd had kids. But I love your food, anyway.
I [heart] you, your blog, and your generous self! 🙂
I'm #25 — an even Benjamin, Debbie!
Thanks for your donation!
