The best laid plans

Sorry friends. It has been a while since i have had time to sit down and write in a meaningful way.  Sometimes life gets in the way…or, as in this instance, a drive-by shooting.

Then there’s the “day job” standpoint, with the two past weeks being a blur. I had the good fortune of two clients wanting to make announcements during the same week. Usually we are able to space these things out more since it’s a large undertaking to prepare materials, clients and get the media interested in learning more about what our clients are doing. But the PR Gods decided two wasn’t enough and threw a surprise third announcement into the mix.

I was bummed out I hadn’t had time to blog, and at one point even thought of throwing in the towel. But a quick internal pep talk with myself helped and here i am writing again. Other than work, what did i do that might be relevant to you? Well…

We are officially T-minus 21 days for the trip to Spain. We will “in-country” for two weeks visiting Madrid, Seville and Barcelona. I’m starting to get that pre-travel giddy buzz while booking walking tours and flamenco shows. I’m also trying out EatWith.com. If you haven’t heard of it, the idea is to have a home-cooked meal in the city you’re visiting, instead of always eating out. You get to hang with a local, check out a neighborhood and meet new people. They get to meet new people as well, and if they’re good cooks it sounds like a nice sideline business. So far my potential host has been lovely: very responsive and accommodating. Our only hold up has been scheduling. And i do hope we can work this out because i’m eager to write about it. Of course, i’m open to recommendations. I’ll even check something out for you, just let me know what/where!

Our vintage 2004 Mac finally bit the dust. This baby had a decent run. The timing was unfortunate since I was hoping to convert the blog to a domain. But without a home computer, that will probably have to wait until later in the year.

Of course, i haven’t been completely MIA. I wrote a guest post about Cusco, Peru for a friend’s blog. I’ll be sure to reblog it when it goes live.

So, it hasn’t been all work. It just feels that way. But I’m back, and will be writing soon. In fact, my next local blog adventure may very well be an outing to go absinthe tasting. That should be interesting because aside from Mr. Os, I don’t know anyone who likes the stuff. Then again, watching people drink something they don’t like can be as entertaining as a good meal. I’ll make sure to have before and after pictures.
