In honor of 2013, I feel duty-bound to present you with a blisteringly honest review of the past year—or more accurately, of the time since my last real post. I am not (yet) in therapy and I did not then feel like “writing my way through” all of this, but I think I can say, with truth and good cheer, that it’s been a wild ride. I’ll let you be the judge…
5. I moved. For a moment I considered, albeit not seriously, changing the name of this blog to more accurately reflect my new geographic location. However, since I can see Russia, I mean San Francisco, from my house, and still spend approximately 85% of my time in The City, I think I’m still legit. Too legit to quit.

Sad news today. The guy who made the phrase “Snap into a Slim Jim” the stuff of my childhood memories (yes, my mom was inexplicably really into watching wrestling when I was little), Randy “Macho Man” Savage has passed away.

I have only slipped away to the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other,
That, we still are.

May 10th, 2011Local Spotlight
A new friend of mine– an underachieving cancer doctor who stopped practicing and gave up paid employment in order to co-found a non-profit that is really making a difference in the lives of sick children in Uganda and Ethiopia– has invited me to a fundraiser that she is hosting this Thursday.

It’s been such a while that I don’t know quite where to begin. If I’m being honest, I suppose I could start by saying that I’ve been holding out on you. Yes, again. For starters, there’s a new guy who is wildly inappropriate for me that I have a major crush on. There have been signs, yet it’s not entirely clear how he feels about it. Still, I’ve felt super protective of “it” (and I’m not sure exactly what “it” is exactly yet) and haven’t really felt like sharing.
My big mouth has gotten me into trouble so many times and this particular thing I don’t actually want to screw up. I mean, I know I’ll probably still somehow manage to do it eventually (I am the QUEEN of self-sabotage), but until then…
Anyway, I promise I will divulge more if things end up in flames, but in the meantime… a few updates, then a Bike Party recap!Tags: Bike Party, Love on Wheels, The Grove
