i work crossword puzzles in ink.
i am the american nigella lawson. or maybe the american eddie
izzard. can't decide, really.
i would be a really good mom, but i'm cool with being a really
i am sometimes more perceptive than i would like to be.
i am fiercely loyal. sometimes, stupidly so.
i never play dumb. never.
i am way too hard on myself.
i am a change agent.
i sometimes cross that fine line between assertive and aggressive.
i am not afraid to tell people that i love them.
i am militantly pro-choice.
i am pro-adoption.
i know a little bit about alot of things.
i typically enjoy the company of men more than women.
i am capable of being really mean and nasty, but i fight it.
i am a lifelong cubs fan. do not laugh.
i have been known to hold a grudge.
i have hips.
i am not my sister.
i am lousy at forgiving myself.
i am an indoor kind of gal.
i am a bargain shopper. to the point of obsession.
i am 32 flavors. and then some.
and so i'm back...from outer space...i just walked in to find you all here with those sad looks upon your face...s. faces. except that doesn't rhyme. dammit.
sorry i didn't give a clear hiatus notice, kids. i actually didn't think i would be hiatusing. it was unplanned hiatusness. i actually thought i'd be blogging more frequently while i was in miami, what with me spending about 12 hours a day in a room with seven computers in it.
but i was wrong.
i was swamped with work.
and with salsa music.
and with fried plaintains.
and chimichurri sauce.
and hot, sexy salsa music.
and hot, sexy salsa dancing.
and boys named oliver [pronounced "ollie-burr"] who said that my hips made them happy that they were men.
and a lot of booze.
and amazing friends over in hotlanta who help you when you hyperventilate in the middle of an outlet mall.
and still more amazing friends over in hotlanta who try and set you up with a guy, and then feel really bad when it becomes really really clear that this is not working out.
and with the matrix reloaded.
and with getting a rather nice tan, if i do say so myself.
and with drinking copious amounts of caipirinhas.
oh, and working a lot.
so, hope you'll forgive me.
the good news: you just know i have fun stories to tell! i already have a new post ready to roll out. and, as a peace offering, to make up for leaving you guys in the lurch and being so damn incommunicado, i do solemnly swear that i won't even make you wait until monday for it. how's that for sucking up?
so, i'm back.
and i had a fabulous and amazing time in miami.
but, i'll let you kids in on a little secret: i missed you.
