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.

Whew, I was getting worried about your month of quiet! But of course, you are always doing fun, exciting things and cooking great food even if you aren't writing about it :) I totally support your lack of TV and internet... less distraction and more focus for thoughtful, creative projects. Still looking forward to reading about Mexico!

I'm so impressed by your lack of internet and TV!!! I need a little of that to rub off on me and my family:) I'm trying to have a little TV detox at home, my preschooler and toddler seem to be addicted already...
