It's so Good to be Here

Know why blogs are better than dogs? If you ignore a blog for a few days, nobody gets hurt.

I have missed writing for myself, but I am having a shit ton of fun getting paid to write and edit for other people while learning a thing or two about creating a publication. My foray into the business end of Catholicism has yielded a comprehensive look at how to create a publication, from start to finish. I even got to hire some people. Me! Imagine that. I certainly have Slippy to thank for that. You're the coolest boss ever! Holla!

But wait, here's the best part. I was informed that it would be best if I worked from home while the office is restructuring. I took that to mean, "We love your work, but we can't stand the sight of ya." It's cool though. I mean, I totally miss seeing Slippy, Chesty, KY and company downstairs, but the chilly snoozefest upstairs where my desk was? Nah. I'm straight. I officially work from home. I can work in my shorts. Who's gonna stop me now?

So, work has been busy, it's true. But there has been a preponderance of food porn in my life all the same. It's not that I don't want to talk about it, it's just that there has been so much, I can't remember all the details. It's been a blur, but I will brag on Monday night at Tin Fish. Grilled salmon on a bed of mashed cauliflower--don't hate. Don't even try. What they did to it was awesome. Creamy-lish, all buttery and whipping creamy. I swear, it was great. The fish was cooked perfectly and the sauteed shitakes were soaked in wine. That place is consistently delicious. Praise Tin Fish.

Did I mention the bisque?

The bisque was good. It was sweet, toasty and lobstery. If that bisque were a man, he'd be sponge worthy.

Meanwhile, Juderonomy and Pooh-pah are taking off for a little roadtrip down south, and I am as thrilled for them as I am jealous, jealous, jealous. Green is not a good color on me. Have fun, mommy, and check in with us. Tell us how Key West is and don't let Dad wander off!

I know there are a million things to write about, but my friends, I am just tapped out. It's midnight. I have a big day of working in my shorts ahead of me, so I'm gonna hit the sack. Good night and thanks for reading!

Blogs don't whiz on the floor either. Congratulations on the working at home deal.

I hope your parents have a good trip. Give them my best.

As for blogs, I feel guilty when I neglect mine.

Haha, Pat. How about it. I'm a blog person.

River, I totally feel guilty when I neglect it, but I don't have to worry about animal cruelty! I will send your best to my parents. They will appreciate it!
