and the winner is...

Oh crap. SDCC is not sold out as I had previously thought. Now I am going to have to get myself a Free Hugs t-shirt and meet my stalkers. Yikes.

Seriously - I'm shocked at the response really. 100+ comments, wow! Who doesn't like free stuff, right? I like getting comments because then I know what people want, and recipes seem to be winning the race. I have PLENTY to post, so stay tuned.

If this weekend was any indication of the upcoming week, I'm in big trouble. I ended up in the ER (yes, again, dammit). Remember that fork that went through my finger 2 weeks ago? Yeah. Now it's infected. Great. And the lovely tetanus shot and antibiotics seem to be keeping me in a permanent state of nausea.

Not only that I have a HUGE deadline this week, and seeing as how I am responsible for a team of four people, I do not want them to work late - including myself. I certainly don't want to be labeled as the a-hole who left them to fend for themselves. I already feel bad that I have to leave early to pick up the kids everyday. Guilt is a b*tch.

And smack in the middle of all of this? The Kid's surgery. So yeah, we'll see if I survive this week. However, there's always time for...

THE WORLD'S BIGGEST DONUT. I told the kids I'd take them to the world's biggest donut, and when we got there they were like, WHAT. It's fake. Ok. So you can't eat it, it's still fun, right? Maybe not. But there were real donuts involved.
Randy's Donuts is an L.A. institution, immortalized on film, tv, videos, and I've been told, has the world's best tasting donuts. They were good, don't get me wrong. Not oily, nice glaze to dough ratio. But world's best? Huh. I still prefer my mini ones, what can I say.

And now what you've been waiting for - the winner of the big box o' stuff! Click HERE to see the winner...congrats - email me! And thanks for reading, seriously, I am constantly surprised that people find the world's biggest donut interesting. Or not. If you don't, don't hate mail me because I've had a rough week. But now I'm wondering, if I do die at the end of the week, does this mean my last memory will be of a giant donut? Blergh.

I loved the reveal for the winner! -even if it wasn't me. :)

I pass by Randy's Donuts everyday on the way to work in El Segundo and have yet to stop. Good to know I'm not missing anything.

Have a good week!

congrats to the winner at SC. Also, Randy's donuts are delicious! Randy's is Top 10 in Los Angeles. At work, we were trying to go through the list but some were too far to check out.

Randy's Donuts is all about novelty. I enjoy seeing it but it never pains me to just drive right on by.

Last memory a giant donut? Why do you say this like it's a bad thing? Worse last memory: "Did I leave the stove on at work? Wait, work doesn't have a stov.... ugh."

I'd much prefer going out thinking about a giant maple donut or something nice.

Totally nerdy L.A. Art comment, but see that smudge on the rim just below the O & N? That's a little Space Invader. I'm glad to see it wasn't ripped off like all the rest.

I could say I tried to cut my fingerprint off in honor of your infection, but honestly, I just wasn't paying attention.
