So guys. In the last several weeks I have clambered over a 12-foot wall, tasted sherry, swum lengths in a pool after a 5-year absence, survived my dragonboat team's fitness test, baked bacon chocolate chip cookies, made a mean pseudo-jambalaya, and learned I'm moving back to Europe in July.

Good times. Now I'm going to enter hermit mode as I get into the nitty gritty of writing my thesis.

HEY IT'S OKAY! You know me and my baking adventures :)

I actually quite liked them! The smokiness of the bacon (which came in no small part from it being a little overdone) cut the sweetness of the chocolate and I found them to be pleasant and enjoyable cookies - and, surprisingly enough, the kind where you really feel satisfied with just one.

I still have some bacon in my freezer and am undecided what to do with it.

Omg, that sounds so so so good. You know what my vote is for...

Sometimes I am glad I have no talent for/interest in baking because then I am sure I would eat my own body weight in sugar. Like, every day.

Internship (ie, putting off the real job search for another few months at least.) It's coming up quite shortly but I'm mostly glad that it gives me a firm deadline for my thesis, otherwise I could see this dragging out for a really long time...

Best of luck with all you have going on with the intership, thesis, and potatoes!

Hey you're alive??

Also, yes, potatoes. Those things always give me such a hard time :(
