unstoppable force

Rather than going back in time and explaining my trip to India (everyone who reads this knows all about it anyway) I am just going to leap back into writing and pretend it hasn’t been nearly 4 months since the last time I wrote something legit. I think its spring like today or tomorrow so, New Season, New Beginnings!

This past weekend was the holiest of all mid-March holidays, St Patrick’s Day! I rounded up some old friends (as in I’ve known them for a long time [6 years!] not that they are getting up there in age) and celebrated to the fullest. I made these (though due to me basically making up my own recipe for the jello part, they were not sweet enough and we only ate like 3 each. The trash got the rest.) and Suz made green pancakes for breakfast. Then we donned as much green as socially acceptable and headed out to the biggest Irish pub I know in Cologne. However, we were turned away at the door because it was already too full, so we went around the corner to a smaller, though no less crowded, Irish pub. A few hours of drinking Guinness and meeting people from all over the British Isles later, we purchased our final green product: a can of sour cream and onion Pringles.

Successful St Patty’s Day? I’d say so.
