Hello from the most inconsistent blogger ever!
I keep meaning to sit down and write something, but in the end I just don't. Not much of an explanation for where I've been, but really, who cares, right? Life has been rolling along as it does, neither great nor terrible, just life.
Let's see, a quick round up of my life since last we spoke.
I cut my hair. It's the shortest it has been since college, in sort of a messy bob. I love it. I'd put up a photo, but I'm not having a good hair day. That's not my hair's fault. I have a cold, so I've been breathing in steam to try to deal with the onslaught of congestion. It helps me breathe better, but it is not so kind to my curly hair.
We successfully hosted Thanksgiving dinner for the first time. Not bad for someone who was a vegetarian until May and who had never cooked a big meal for a large group of people before. I'm pleased to say the turkey turned out perfectly. I wasn't worried about the side dishes, but getting everything ready at the same time and cooking a 20 lb turkey did have me a little worried. Thank goodness for the Internet and most specifically for the Thanksgiving guides on Epicurious.com and PioneerWoman, because their advice gave me everything I needed.
We started watching Dexter. Why didn't anyone tell me this show was so great? Oh right, you did. Well, we've made it through Season One and just started on Season Two. I hate the opening credits sequence, but really like everything else about the show.
Sticking with TV, I'm also loving Top Chef All Stars (although the museum challenge was stupid! I want to see these people cook, not make snacks for screaming children!). This is the pefect antidote to Top Chef Just Desserts, which I watched, but did not enjoy.
I'm definitely feeling rusty in the blog post department, but at least I'm back up on the horse, right Becky? (Note: Becky got tired of waiting for me to get my shit together and asked, very politely if I was ever going to write anything ever again. Hi Becky!)
In closing, I'll leave you with a cute photo of Seamus, who is trying to get into the Christmas spirit:
