Easing My Way Back In

I've been out of touch for a while. I've been dragged into the undertow at work.

There hasn't been any posts here in a while. Happy New Year all. Here's an easy meme to get started in the new year. h/t Soan.

1. Where is your cell phone: Charging.

2. Your hair: was just styled today, thank you. Hirono and I pampered ourselves with a hair appointment today. I'm short and much more blond.

3. Your mother: knows how to have fun.

4. Your father: is Papa.

5. Your favorite food: Greens fried in salt pork.

6. Your dream last night: was promptly forgotten. I'm exhausted.

7. Your favorite drink: Rioja

8. Your dream/goal: is that both Alisa and Leia graduate from college.

9. What room are you in: Office at home.

10. Your hobby: is geeky. I'm about to dip my toe back into the FRPG subculture. I'm really a Dungeons and Dragons geek in my very soul. Dylan and Josh, my nephews, are interested in trying it out. I immediately went into high gear prepping and came out with a fantastic campaign in mind that will work for little kids. After a couple of sessions, if they like it, I've lined up another friend who loves to play and wants to slowly bring his daughter into the fun. I'm so stoked.

11. Your fear: Just like Soan, horror movies. Especially any graphic finger injuries. I've broken a bunch of fingers on each hand and know the pain.

12. Where do you want to be in 6 years: Kyoto on vacation

13. Where were you last night: In this office doing work.

27. Something you’re not wearing: shoes and socks

28. Your favorite store: Farmer's Market. We have a good one here.

29. Your favorite color (s): Orange, no yellow.

Oh, and that fish looks incredible!

It was incredible, as were all the other dishes at this fabulous place. And dirt cheap. Of course, there was no wait staff so the service was different than a normal restaurant.

Barcelona really is the place to go for food in Europe.
