Oatmeal Tips

As you know, "Bloggy" the "Blog" Mascot (pictured) has been visiting San Francisco, where she has gathered lots of oatmeal tips for our popular regular feature "Oatmeal Tips." "Bloggy" claims - and I believe her - that the McSweeney's tutoring center 826 Valencia is a veritable hotbed of oatmeal tips. I turn it over to "Bloggy" now. She writes, "When I was there visiting the other day, the topic of oatmeal came up and I pounced for details! Jory John, Programs Director, starts every single busy day at the tutoring center with some instant oatmeal. His tip is this: a plastic knife works as a perfectly acceptable substitute for your missing plastic spoon. Ryan Lewis, National Ops Mgr, also insists on daily oatmeal. And finally, 826 Valencia intern Maddie Oatman (her real name, I swear), blogs about oatmeal on her food blog. Wow!" Wow, indeed, "Bloggy." Wow, indeed. Be like "Bloggy"!
