Furthering my theory that everything in life relates back to Friends, I'm reminded of The One With the Ride Along. Perhaps 2012 is about "escaping stuff" for you?

2012 is off to an inauspicious start, but if I may channel Croftie for a moment: 2011 was the Year We Got Published. 2012 is the Year We Write Our Books, Get Agents, and Become Honest-to-Betsy Professional Writers.

fingers crossed.

also, things you never want to eat: the charred plastic/spinach combo currently lying in state in my microwave.

What are these 'micro' waves you speak of? And why do you allow them to conflagurate your foodstuffs?

Be happy you live in Chicago. A Boston cab would'nt have 'bumped' you.

My brief time spent there has taught me that even when you depress the 'Can I Walk Across This Intersection Now?' button and then the little white-glowy dancing man lights up on the opposite street corner it is still your best option to keep your head on a swivel and sprint.

Caro, you know me. I don't eat green stuff unless it is green Skittles or M&Ms. Spinach is definitely neither one of those.
