February Update

I just realized that if I don't post today, it would be the first time I didn't write at least once in a month since I started this blog back in 2007. Talk about lazy blogging!

First, a Mexico update: I have been languorously writing about my trip as the mood and memories strike. The ultimate result will be a series of detailed posts with pictures, but I'm going to stop making promises about when that's coming.
Second, why haven't I been blogging in general? You might think it's because life doesn't seem quite as exciting now that I live in the U.S., but my weeks continue to be filled with varied and interesting activities even and maybe especially when I'm stateside. For instance, in the month of February I have:
  • Gone to a Heroes and Villians costume party:

  • Hosted a very successful clothing swap and brunch:

  • Participated in (and cooked for) multiple board game nights (Settlers of Catan, how we love thee)
  • Been speed dating (Yes, again! I can't get enough of awkward social situations)
  • Cheered for a friend's Roller Derby Team
  • Survived cross country skiing:

  • Taken the Underground Tour for the third time (third time was enough)
  • Cooked countless delicious things - I love winter food and getting a bi-weekly produce box keeps me on my culinary feet.
  • Delighted in numerous brunches, lunches, and dinners with friends and family.
So, why haven't I written in unecessary detail about any of these events? I blame it on not having the internet at my apartment. But how can you LIVE without the internet, you ask? Easily. I also don't have a TV - it's the dark ages at my house and that's the way I like it. But I realize my laziness isn't fair to the 5 of you who regularly check in on me, nor to future generations who will pour over my every word (ahem), nor to future me who will wonder what I did with my youth and be grateful for this convenient record, so I will try to do a better job of writing in the future for all of our sakes.
