Every day for the past month, I have woken up with the same thought: Today will be the day I update my blog.
But that didn’t happen. December is not a great month for blogging. December’s not a great month for doing anything other than eating yourself sick and pulling your hair out over Christmas gifts.
So here’s a super quick recap of some of the things I did in December that did not involve binge eating or stress shopping:
–The MT and I explored Boston together. And let me tell you, you have not explored Boston until you have explored it with the MT.
Seriously, friends. It was a time. We committed treason (see above), skated in a cemetery, wrote on museum walls, went to a Speakeasy, ate food in weird places, wore strange hats, and were transcendental. Among other activities.
–Flew home and celebrated Christmas with my family in Utah. Which included my mom giving us a knitted sorting hat from Harry Potter. We also got a Darth Vader voice changer mask. Not knitted.
–Blind taste tested 13 sugar cookies on a quest to find the most delicious sugar cookie in the Salt Lake Valley.
Seriously, it was a blind taste test. As in we were blind folded.
The best sugar cookie in Utah, in case you were wondering, can be found at One Smart Cookie.
–Attended a Renaissance-themed murder mystery party dressed as Shakespeare.
The MT also came along, dressed as an Irish mercenary/Hamlet/Ronan Lynch.
–Ate at my favorite Utah restaurant, Cafe Rio, multiple times with 14, fresh from her Norwegian adventure. No picture. Because I don’t believe in taking pictures of your food.
–On that subject, I ate too much good food.
This is one of many examples. Resisting posting all of them.
–Read some great books out loud with the MT. Then made sweaters based on them, a picture of which was then retweeted by the author of said books. (MY LIFE IS NOT SUPER EXCITING, OKAY!? THESE ARE THE BIG MOMENTS OF MY LIFE!)
–Saw my dog.
–Saw my mom holding a bowl for water so my dog would be more comfortable when she drinks.
–Was given a Norwegian Christmas troll to protect me. I think he’s actually meant to cause mischief, but he loves me, and so I have trained him to be my guardian.
His name is Chainsaw.
–Was given some excellent fan art by the MT. Bonus points if you can name either of these characters.
And I think that was December. I’m gonna be better about blogging from here on out. I made a pact with myself. I said, “Self, you should be better about blogging.” So that’s gonna happen. I’m even gonna go out of my way to do strange things that will result in good stories for the blog.
It’ll happen. Just wait. You’ll see.
