SUPER BIG NEWS, YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW BIG

Ok, I’m going to give you a second to guess how big the news is. Go ahead and guess. I’ll wait.
I’m waiting.
Aaaaaand -
Bad job! All of you guessed wrong. I am very disappointed in all of you!  Especially you, Tomoko! ^_^

The big news is – I AM OPENING UP MY VERY OWN BENTO STAND! ^o^
I know you’re asking yourself – but what does that mean to me?
Good question, citizen. It means that Yumi’s Bento Catering Blog is CLOSED FOREVER.
Don’t even try to go to it. Don’t even try to type in the url. Don’t even think about it! This morning I walked my old blog to the woods and set it free. Sure, it was traumatic at first. I had to throw little pebbles at my blog and yell “I don’t love you anymore! You live in the woods now!”  But after a very emotional morning it’s running free with all of the other wild blogs now. I am sad but also proud.
I know, I know. You’re thinking “If your blog is discontinued, then I’ll be sad forever.” (;_・)
Don’t worry! I have additional good news.
Everything you loved about the old blog will be continued in this new blog. The advice column, the junk food reviews, the how-to’s, the pictures of things that are so cute that it is unbearable, and of course the daily updates on all things Yumi.
I know you’re wondering, why change everything? The old blog was great.I know, but sometimes it’s time for a new start.
So, in honor of new beginnings, I’m going to try something extra new. I’m going to let you, my friends and readers, name my new bento stand and blog! You can vote for one of these names:
Super Bento!
Let’s Bento! 
Bentocalypse! 
Happy Bentos! 
Or you send me your best blog / bento stand name ideas by leaving me a comment.*
*Votes will be counted by a scientist. Original names will be evaluated by a different scientist. Results will be posted when I feel like it ^_^

  15. "Breaking News Today as voting continues for the Name of the Bento blog / booth. We'll go live now to our field correspondent, Yumi."

    Thanks Jim, I'm standing here near my computer and I can certainly say the voters are energized. Exit polls are projecting some very surprising results:

    Happy Bentos has taken a strong lead this with six votes, followed closely by long time rival Let's Bento. Mental Bento and Bariuma Bento are both standing strong with two votes each. But it's still anyone's game as Supper Happy Bento, Bent For Bentos, and Wacky Happy Bentos show no sign of backing down with one vote each.

    Polls will remain open through the evening, with results posted in the morning! :D
