is anybody out there?

i know you could be asking the same thing of me. in defense of my absence from the blog over the past 15 days, i submit the following:

1. i'm now in my late 20s and am getting a little forgetful
2. i went to new york to visit grad schools
3. i decided on a grad school (columbia! yay!) and got so excited and flustered that all other thoughts flew right out of my head
4. i have to re-write my climate change article for about the 18th time
5. since getting back from new york last wednesday, i've had a social event every single evening (except sunday which i spent in a stupor on the couch recuperating from the previous three evenings)
6. my liver hurts a little bit
7. it FINALLY stopped raining
8. i haven't managed to knit ANYTHING in the past 15 days. literally not one stitch.
9. the man sitting across from me is eating his quiche in the most peculiar manner (okay, okay ... that's not really a reason in defense of my absence ... but the man just performed surgery on his quiche. that's weird.)

anyhoo, i'm back! yay! rejoice, rejoice! hallelujah!

the past two weeks have been a little bit of a whirlwind - wheeeeeeeeeeeeee! i told work yesterday that i'm not coming back - yay! it's sunny - whoopee! it stays light until 7:30 - yippeeee! i'm taking the whole month of july off of work - yahoo!

so yeah, i'm back. but i ask you - where's maggie? i mean, i know what she's going to say:

1. her internet doesn't work when it's raining
2. her parents are in town (not so much of a defense when one of said parents is the infamous superbon, also a missing contributor from the blog)
3. she's been swimming in pearls

but that's all i can come up with ... so mags, no more excuses. we want you back in action.

I know that you must be extremely busy when you don't even do an entry in almost a month. Yikes! Are you even getting a chance to knit? I love you, dear. Love, mom
