Best Chicken Blog News EVAH March 28, 2014
Today I’m blogging about Martha Stewart blogging about My Pet Chicken. How very meta. Plus, I may have discovered a way, using just chickens and geekiness, to travel back in time. How, you ask? I’ll tell you, But first a short trip down memory lane!
I’ve been subscribed to Living magazine for more than a decade. I keep my back issues, and in fact, come the various holiday seasons, I’ll get out the blocks of them to look for seasonal recipes and decorating ideas to try.
Martha Stewart has blogged about My Pet Chicken before. (I’ve also mentioned Martha Stewart in my blog posts several times: gingerbread coop, anyone? Or do you want to make her amazing chocolate rum balls?) You may also know My Pet Chicken has been on her show (more than once!).
We’ve been hand delivering live baby chicks to Martha Stewart every year. My Pet Chicken chickens are Martha Stewart chickens. Martha loves the especially rare breed, trendy birds she can get from us! This year, Traci delivered Black Copper Marans, Blue Laced Red Wyandottes, Blue Ameraucanas, Lavender Orpingtons, and Olive Eggers.
These are seriously cool chickens to add to a flock, and will lay some gorgeous eggs, too! Martha will have chocolate brown, light brown, pale blue and olive green eggs from these beauties.
This new post on Martha’s blog is especially exciting to me personally, because she mentions our new book, the My Pet Chicken Handbook. Who would ever have thought Martha Stewart would be blogging about me (Lissa says, not without some serious exaggeration!). But I’m really excited about this! Traci looks happy showing off the book, too.
But how does this relate to time travel using chickens and geekiness? Let me tell you. I’ve never denied being a geek, whether its a crafty, decorating, cooking geek that adores her Living magazines; a chicken geek who wrote the My Pet Chicken Handbook with Traci; a home brewing geek or just the regular kind of geeky geek! But, thanks to my inner geek, I always get to say “Hello, April!” ( or any month) in Martha Stewart style.
The only problem—is this a problem?—is that she adds to the portfolio every year. I’ll never get to everything!
So here’s what I figure: my mad sci-fi/fantasy geek chops tell me that if she blogs about me blogging about her blogging about us, we’ll have unraveled the fabric of space-time, and I should be able to enter the mirror universe where ALL my chickens are bearded. Or I am.
Now, how do I find evil Spock? I guess I’ll figure it out. Hopefully I can also figure out a way to include her blog post about the My Pet Chicken Handbook in my Martha Stewart Living collection!
