No Le Hemos Abandonado

27 June 2008

So let’s see…judging by the ‘blogstats’ thingy on WordPress dashboard, it’s been about 3 weeks since our last post…just despicable on our part.

We’re about eleventy-billion articles short…there was Barcelona and all of it’s magnificent Gaudí-ness; then Córdoba with it’s Candy Land-inspired mosque, and Granada, home of the Alhambra; then the horrors of lugging eight overloaded suitcases through the Madrid Metro, only to get two hours of sleep prior to landing in London’s Heathrow Airport (the 7th level of hell, btw, especially when you accidentally get stuck in the TSA screening line staffed exclusively with brain-dead mouth-breathing trainees intent on swabbing everything—EVERYTHING—in your carry-on, including business cards, forcing you into 30 minutes of rage-suppressing tongue-biting to the point you nearly pass out from the pain, just as an escape method). Then there’s the obligatory encapsulation post summarizing our experience and what we learned, what we miss, what shocked us, how the hell we managed to gain back all the weight we lost over there in three days back in the States, yadda, yadda, yadda. We could then go on to bore you about the discovery of $1600 worth of broken down cars in the driveway upon our return and the arduous necktie-laden schlepping through the steamy streets of Chicago in search of jobs and our subsequent jaunts from the north of M*ch*g*n to the south of Georgia and get everyone caught up.

But, there’s no time for that now. We have a family road trip coming up and must go pack for that. So, we just wanted to let you know that we have not abandoned you, dear readers, and will update more fully when we get to a static residence. Thanks for your patience and dedicated readership; we love your comments.

Anybody wanna hire a crack graphic designer and accountant tag team of fury? We’re available after the 4th…

    Keep in touch – go back to eating and drinking like you did in Spain for weight loss and good luck to both of you in finding jobs! Alison – let me know if you are interested in the top accounting firms – I know people in New York who know all the partners in Chicago…

    Love – Aunt Carol and Uncle Geoffrey

    We will miss our weekend entertainment but look forward starts writing o hearing all about Chicago and all your adventures there. Remember you have family on the other side of the world – Israel and we love “The World According to Conor”

    I’m glad you liked Barcelona with all its Gaudi-ness, it’s the most fabulous city to live in.
