Ow! Bourdain, stop standing on my head! Or at least wipe your shoes for once.

And it should be noted that the esteemed Mr. Bonne won two awards -- 1st and 2nd in the internet category. He's beside himself, apparently.

Congrats to all! How come the other winners aren't yet eGullet members? How can they not be and still be winners?

Congratulations to all and well done. I'm so glad to put names and styles and publications together.

I just know who writes well, whose work reads well, whose words leap off the page and give me a ping of delight or dismay or shock, whose view of life and food and living well or not entrances in the telling and resounds in the remembering. I know whose posts I dive into with anticipation, whose articles can be counted on to entertain and inform, whose turns of phrase and methods of expression are painted as vividly as neon, and whose ideas and remembrances linger to be gently resurrected again and again.

I've read these threads avidly for almost a year now, and appreciate each and every person who speaks and illuminates and lets off steam and teaches and makes us laugh and wonder and learn.

Thank you to all, and special congratulations to all the honorees.

...and Bourdain, too :wink:

I missed this when it first posted (damn vacations!) so am glad Natalie posted the thread back into the headlines.

Edited because I can't type.
