White people and Kitchen Aid Mixers

So for work, one of my self-assigned tasks it to reach out to pop culture blogs and create partnerships. And the one that I cared about most was Stuff White People Like, I mean…I’m kind of in love with the blog. (In a clearly I know I can’t marry a blog sort of way, of course).

But, Christian Lander, the creator of the blog, emailed me back (and yes, for all of you that paused in shock…that was a real name written there). And I may have run around the office with a happy dance, jump and smile (one of the interns claims I did I happy clog and not a happy dance). All in all though, I got to meet him tonight. It’s like the life goal I forgot about. I mean meeting Christian is right up there with me wanting to meet Deb of smittenkitchen, it just needs to happen.

But he signed my book, took a photo with me and my coworkers, and is going to work with my office. The happy dance I’m doing is never-ending and possibly all internal now as I sit and yawn on my couch.

SOOOOOOOOO HAPPY!!! And if you’re wondering why a Kitchen-Aid is mentioned in the title…it’s cause I self-identify with #54 on the Stuff White People Like List, kitchen gadgets, mostly these three paragraphs:

But, in order for them to truly enter into whitedom, they need to own the holy grail of white kitchens – the kitchen aid stand mixer. They will match this mixer to their kitchen’s color scheme and it will make up the focal point. And much like many religious artifacts, it will remain untouched for months and even years, sitting on the counter to be admired as a testament to their lifestyle.

Kitchen Gadgets also serve as one of the main reasons why white people get married. Look at their registry and you will find gadgets for any possible task in the kitchen. If you end up buying one of these for a white person, your card should make reference to them using a lot to make beautiful food that you hope you can eat one day. This kind of stuff goes over like gang busters.

…you should just throw out a combination of these words: “le Creuset, Calphalon, All Clad, Williams Sonoma, and Sur Le Table.” White people go so nuts when they hear these words, you won’t even have to finish your sentence.

However, to this all I have to say is….my lemongrass green Kitchen-Aid mixer is the center point of my small kitchen, purchased at Williams Sonoma, and I didn’t have to get married and register for it…I just had to graduate from college (cause that is how ridiculous I am).

**Follow-up: I know I’m not white. But people, just let me go on this one. I’ll come back to my usual confused multi-cultural, bi-racial self after the euphoric buzz wears off.

    “I know I’m not white”? There is a solid chance that more posts on that blog describe you than me (if that’s possible). Although I did buy a new scarf today…in the middle of summer.

    I was wondering if you’d live blog PR again, but this is a much more momentous occasion!
