Hi all. What’s new?
Me? Well, I tweaked my neck lunging for a high toss while I was juggling last night and I’m still somehow jetlagged a week after returning home to Minneapolis which is probably a sign from God that I should drink more cider before bed.
If you’ve been the die-hard, drooling dedicated readers that I imagine all seven of you are, you may be aware that my time blogging about Romania over at Gadling has come to a close with this post. You know what that means, don’t you? Yes, posts here will resume shortly. Or longly. I really don’t know. I’m finding it hard to struggle upright and make writing time between sprawling on the couch mostly nekkid, discovering new blogs, watching “Deadwood” and “24” DVDs and eating whole chocolate bars, washed down with a half gallon of skim milk all in one sitting. The American Dream, indeed.
I’m kidding of course. I love you guys. I wouldn’t go that long without posting something new, particularly as I have just acquired one of the greatest gadgets invented since shoes. It is, of course, battery-driven. Very on-topic. More soon.
Finally, on the subject of blogs, now that I have all this free time and unfettered internet access, I’ve decided to start collecting blogs that I plan to read on a regular basis. Seeing as how I expect people to hang on my every word, I figured it was time to give back to the community. Suggestions for writing, travel-related or just plain hilarious blogs much appreciated.
Well, if you are now a Naked-Couch-Potato, one hopes you haven’t acquired an Iphone & are sending videos of yourself to unsuspecting callers.
Your writings on gadling were most enjoyable…almost made me want to see the cement-factory town.

It’ll be good to read your posts again.
Try this guy’s blog. I think you have a similar sense of humor: http://www.geeseaplenty.com/
I’ve drunk the Kool-Aid and you should too….Twitter.
You can’t HANDLE 140-character word limits for tweets!
it’s not unhealthy if you’re drinking skim milk
Do men use vibrators?
Maureen – that neopoleon.blogspot.com gives me a ‘page not found’ message. I do not own an iPhone. I was tempted, but in the end, another gadget won out, much to the chagrin of my Apple disciple buddy…
Kari – good link! Thanks!
Sheila – I love it when you write after your evening Jack and Coke. I have no idea what you’re talking about, yet it’s still oddly intriguing and funny.
Lucas – How was Bolivia or whatever? Hablas espanol? I’m putting away the skim milk by the half gallon to beat back this lactose intolerance that seems to have set in during my absence from America/milk. All I’m saying that that it’s a good thing I spend most of the day home alone within lunging range of the bathroom.
Gemma – I wouldn’t know. There are few avenues of life and culture that I refuse to explore. Male dildo play is one of them. Maybe ask your husband?
Guatemala. I was in the highlands six weeks and then popped into chiapas for a week.
I totally understand the milk thing… I’m hooked too which is a tragedy because apparently it’s not socially acceptable for grown men to drink the stuff in central america. Locals would give me these dirty looks just for sitting with an open carton of milk in a park or on the steps of a cathedral, like I’m urinating in public or something. But whatever, I’m home and can now gorge myself like a baby whale in the privacy of my living room.. and at this rate I’ll have the 8 pounds I lost back by about 4:00 friday afternoon.
Spanish is a work in progress. I knew the grammar pretty well before I got there but, even after a couple weeks of chatting it up in spanish class, I still don’t feel comfortable with it.
Awwww, I’m sober as a judge….maybe not a good analogy anymore.
Anyway, think of Twitter as a series of mini blog posts. You follow some folks and their “tweets,” they follow you, you end up yakking with people you’d never expect.
You answer the question “What are you doing?” If answered halfway thoughtfully, things can get interesting. If answered by “I am admiring my fine L. Pettersen posterior, as usual,” then I can’t help you. :)

System can get slow, but hey, it’s a dumb computer, it does that sometimes.
Isn’t Deadwood great? I didn’t discover it until recently, since we don’t watch TV per se, but I’m addicted to the DVDs.
Hmm…lets see. I read yours, and an airline pilot’s blog that is filled with mostly stuff that makes no sense to non airplane people. But it is airplanepilot.blogspot.com if you like that sorta thing.
I love your blog!!!
