With finals done I can finally return to making regular posts. Apologies for the lack of content this last week. I’ve been writing, its just been devoted to research papers. One, for my German history class, required fifteen pages. Two days and thirty-nine citations from thirty-five different sources later I (are you like me?) turned in my paper thiry minutes before the deadline.
On Thursday at the Christmas party of a mutual friend, I spoke with Kelsey Nixon of kelseyskitchen.com about her tv spot, website and budding career as a chef. I promised a good write-up (I’ve eaten a few of her desserts and they are delicious) and link to the website. Congratulations are in order on her plans to spend the summer at an elite French (oxymoron?) bed-and-breakfast, learning French and teaching the culinary arts.
I will, however, have to disagree with her and several others at the party regarding Martha Stewart. Abrasive though she may be, she most certainly did not commit a crime worthy of prison time. She definitely didn’t commit the crime they were investigating–insider trading.
Bad news (?) for Mariners fans. Bill Bavasi is the M’s GM and we still haven’t figured out how to convince Billy Beane to leave the A’s. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that our offseason will be “highlighted” by the signings of Carl Everett (a team player?) and Jarrod Washburn. Steve Kelley’s comments pretty much sum it up.
For those of you who still haven’t traveled home, please, do so safely. My blog has such a small readership I can scarcely afford to have those few of you killed off by a sideswipe from a semi.
Stay tuned for posts on everything from the Seahawks (yes, again), Iraqi elections, a list of the Top Christmas Movies and (dare I mention?) a recent article entitled, “Friends with benefits. Buddies. Booty calls. Is this what dating has become?” What might surprise you most is that it was not written for the Daily Universe.
