Two of My Favorite Things

I love love love the Modern Love column in the New York Times. Eve Pell's essay "The Race Grows Sweeter Near Its Final Lap," posted online Thursday, January 24, 2013, and appearing in the Sunday print edition on January 27th, is an affecting portrait of late-in-life love...with fortune cookies!

Perfectionist Tendencies

You may have noticed I've been scarce around these parts. It's been almost four months since my last post. Forgive me, readers. The combination of regularly eating Chinese food in restaurants that don't offer fortune cookies (what?), a time-consuming job that I love, and settling into my new home result in little blog material and even less time to post it.

But today my colleagues and I had lunch at one of the only places I've found in this town that does offer fortune cookies, and I must say my insert was right on target:

"You have a yearning for perfection."

The evidence? That misplaced hyphen bothers me so much that I left the not-a-fortune on the table. I don't ever want to see it again.

I hope you're all well and celebrating the new year. Give it all you've got. Make the most of it. Do all those things you've been meaning to do. 

If you miss me here, you can find me on TwitterFacebook, and Tumblr. Just because I'm not here doesn't mean I'm gone.
