Who, as I said, is awesome. And I thought it was cute how he did the whole “gradual realization” thing of who I was, when I was PRETTY SURE he knew who I was from the minute I said, “Hi, my name is Danielle Belton and I write the blog ‘The Black Snob.'”
But hey, you gotta play ’em cool, daddio. I get it.
