Oh, my Gawd! How the heck are you guys?! I know, I know. It’s been like a million years in Internet time, but I’m back! Oh, the places I’ve seen! The people I’ve encountered! You have no idea! It’s a big, beautiful world out there, even in the mild wilds of our local suburban safari park! But I have ventured beyond the boundaries of my average-Joe reservation many times, to that forbidden shadowy place called “El-Ay”…where the stars lay at your feet and the light falls silver from a plasma sun…and I have brought back with me stories of greed, lust, outrageous public behavior, and damn good food.
Throughout my wild wanderings and weekend sojourns, I’ve thought of you, Dear Reader, as I collected stories, photographs, and recipes that I imagined would put a smile on your face, a tear in your eye…and if you’re lucky, a twinge in your gut.
So I’m back, baby, and tending the store! In coming days, I’ll cover the proper care and maintenance of hula hoops, give a rundown on the Trader Joe version of Bulgarian kyopolou — and, of course, I still need to finishing telling you guys about what happened down at the docks in Venice that cold, dark night. Shenanigans!
So visit me daily for good reads, good eats, good laughs — and most importantly — great stories! You’re not gonna want to miss any of it!
In the meantime, please forgive moving menus and disappearing widgets as I am in the midst of straightening up around here in an effort to improve your reading experience. Thanks, guys!
Feels good to be back! <me-YEOW!>
