“You’re in love with that cat!” my then-girlfriend Margot once accused me. To be fair, she was a very attractive cat.

A Man and His Cat by Tim Kreider – so evocative and sweet. I’m a sucker for a great cat (in spite of being allergic).

What’s new with you, @JunDishes?

While it hasn’t been too long since I featured @JunDishes in the Twitter Spotlight, she has been doing so much, particularly with her new venture Rice House that I was eager to bring you up to date.

From Jun, three new things:

1 – I opened the very first Korean restaurant, a takeaway joint, in Flanders: Rice House.

Aside from finances, Rice House is helping me share some of the Korean culture through food and conversations, with people here in Belgium.

This is important to me because my son is half-Korean and at barely two-and-a-half, he recognizes already the Korean flag which adorns so much of Rice House.

At home I raise Noah as a trilingual child of mixed heritage, but Rice House now makes it easier to show that to him in a real way.

Marquel for Bachelor

Twitter Spotlight: Daile Bree

Confession: I have a little blog crush on this week’s Twitter Spotlight participant, Daile. She’s got sass and even without makeup, she looks like this:

No makeup

Not fair, right?

She also has this adorable cat named Bixby who reminds me the darling Fitzroy Brandes.

Better to crush on Daile than to be a jealous hater, I figure.

Twitter Spotlight: Lance Burson

It has been so hard to find men to feature in the Twitter Spotlight. Maybe you have noticed the imbalance. There have been some, like Isaiah Mustafa and Matt Feige and Rod Benson, but the female-male ratio has to be 4:1.

Fortunately for us, today’s Twitter Spotlight participant Lance Burson is used to being a man outnumbered by women. In fact, he has blogged about it.

Things aren’t much different at home where he lives with four women. In his spare time, Lance writes. He is the author of three books.

Twitter Spotlight: Amara Baptist

Kobe Bryant follows Amara Baptist on Twitter. Can you top that? I don’t think so.

Is Amara a huge sports fan? She is indeed. But she has also been a professional dancer. That takes dedication.

Get to know @Amarina27 in her own words.
