Carbs and Carburetors

Right about now, I imagine most of my loyal readers – all 5 of you – are pretty damned pissed and are basically like "what the F?!" that I seemed to have dropped off the face of the planet, never to be seen nor heard from again.

As you should be.

I don't know what happened. Well, actually, yeah I do.

It's taken me a while to feel comfortable writing again and being in the headspace to do it. A lot has been on my mind lately – stuff that has nothing to do with food. Okay – and then there are things, like watching my weight that has everything to do with food – but not in the way that I feel needs to be shared with the blogosphere.

There is such a thing as Too Much Information. (I know you'd never expect to read those words from me!)

Lots of internal introspection, lots of soul searching, and oh: I bought a car. It's an old VW and it's the first car I've owned in 14 years and I've been just a leeettle obsessed with it. My last car, which I'll call "Precious Baby 1", I sold before I left Florida and took a Greyhound bus out to California. I haven't owned a car since, so it's kind of weird to use the phrase "my car" with the actual word "MY" in front of the word "car". I usually do a double-take and then ask myself if I just had a Matrix moment, a senior moment, or something similar.

Such...is life? You can see why I haven't been too concerned with writing about food. There are more important things – things like low carbs and carburetors; a 36 year old body that needs some interior work, a few parts replaced, and a tune up – and a 34 year old body that needs roughly the same, plus an injection of dark chocolate every now and then (purely for the antioxidants, y'all.)

I've got a big weekend coming up (if you're watching the parade, look for me in contingent number 86!), but afterwards I'll be back to my normal – or normal for San Francisco – self. And yes, I do plan on telling you all about my trip, starting with Charleston and the Lowcountry.

Just hang in there.

I promise I'll come through for you.

I just keep coming back for the gems you post every now and then...I certainly can't complain seeing as how I post twice a month and never about food anymore. So it goes.
