View Full Version : rolling pin

It was brought to my attention that in the October issue on page 12 there is a quote from Lisa W (that's me). Anyway, upon checking it out I realized that I never said that so I contacted the administrator for the BB. Apparently, it was a mistake. It was really your quote on my threadSlow Cooker Recipe - Wild Rice Soup (http://community.cookinglight.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=14025&highlight=football+and+bread+machine)
The 15 minutes of fame should be yours, not mine! :)

I thought you were going to ask as question about a rolling pin :rolleyes: :confused:
That is very admirable of you Lisa W to correct CL's error and pass the quote on to the person who deserves it. Kudos to you for doing the right thing!!!! :D :)

See, am I the only one who thinks CL should notify the person that they're quoting? This would prevent this problem.........
Dunno. Maybe it's a nice surprise for those who have been quoted not to find out until after the fact.
Nice job, Lisa. :)

Well, funnybone, as they say, "great minds think alike" -- and so must ours. I couldn't imagine what there would be to question about a "rolling pin." Duh. :p

I agree with SandyM. As much as the surprise factor is fun, they seem to misquote often enough that checking with the person ahead of time would be a good idea. They misquoted me on the 2001 Annual Recipe Book website. And it seems to me they misquoted some others, too (although maybe I'm wrong about that).

I was quoted in December '01 and they did ask my permission first. It's weird that they would be so random about it... sometimes asking and sometimes not. They do seem to get it wrong a lot. Even my quote was really a paraphrase of what I actually said.

I agree, it would be nice for them to contact the person first - I was "quoted" but my words were paraphrased. I was actually quite surprised to see it there!

Lisa W., Thank you for your post! Believe it, or not, I read the quote in CL and didn't even realize it was mine! HA! (It was a year ago ...) Plus, it wasn't quite a direct quote ... (like that would have jarred my memory!) Anyway, thanks again for your kindness in passing this on to me. My one chance at fame, and CL blew it. In my best Charlie Brown sigh, "Good grief..." ;)
Andrea M. (aka Rolling Pin - because I love to bake!)
