To Myself

This is the Christmas gift I bought for myself yesterday in Mumbai. They will go perfectly with my First Family earrings and my Obama chitenge.

The savior of the world economy?

The census results shall be revealed today.

I am not counted.

This makes me kind of sad. I am a person and I should be counted. I didn't break any laws, I paid all my bills. Yet, I have not been counted because I lived in 3 different countries this year, missing the census in each one.

Just my luck.

India is cold.

I am here to smash this common misconception. India has the Himalayas. It gets cold.

Now I'm nowhere near the actual Himalayas but winter is upon us here in Pune. I've been gone from 'home' for so long that my body would freeze in a tough South Dakota winter. My winter is sweatshirt, jeans, and (on really cold days) socks with my flip flops. I'm perfectly suited for this arrangement.

Sometimes I do miss those South Dakota winters. I miss staying inside, bundled up, in front of the tv with my hot chocolate and marshmallows. I miss watching Keloland tell me to never leave my car if I get trapped on the side of the road in a snow bank. But now that I think about it, I don't miss snow. I technically miss blizzards. Any other kind of snow is just annoying really.

I also miss my furry boots and crocheting new scarfs and hats.

But this Christmas I get to eat not one but TWO of my favorite Indian dishes: misal pav and pav bhaji. In my book, this makes up for being away from blizzards (and my family) for the Christmas holidays.

I'm back to the blogging...

I've turned 26 and had my try at tumblr. It became annoying and time consuming after 3 weeks (when I realized that I was 'blogging' (or do the cool kids call it 'tumblr-ing'?) WAY too much).

I'll stick with my blog.

So what have I been doing while I've been away?

Worked, Turned 26, worked some more, tried to make bagels on American Thanksgiving (this was a semi-disaster), and now I'm getting ready for Christmas in India.

Oh, I've also become obssesed with making videos on my mac. You can check this one out, if you want!
