It's me, Guten Allie. Just checking in to say that I am still alive (yay!) but still taking a tiny bit of a bloggy hiatus to spend time with my family. Oh, how the posts will flow after this- family time is good blogging fodder.
In other news, I went to the dentist today and enjoyed a clean bill of dental health. Three cheers for fluoride and floss sticks! However, during the cleaning I encountered an awkward problem, and I wonder if I'm not alone on this. Maybe the dental hygienist had abnormally large hands, or maybe my freakishly long tongue was to blame, but I kept inadvertently licking her hand. That's right, full on, how ya doin, licking her hand. I don't think I've ever done that before. For the record, she didn't seem to notice or mind, but still, that can't be normal. I just couldn't keep my tongue out of the way. It tasted like latex and regret.
More to come later, including the thrilling tale of my trans-Atlantic never ending flight and the benefits of a good run in with karma, but alas my friends these are for another day.
I will leave you all with this: if you haven't already, please make haste to your favorite DVD rental facility and immediately start watching Battlestar Galactica. Check your reservations over SciFi at the door- this show is so much more than that. Husband and I just wrapped up the last season, and I can say without any hesitation that it has been my absolute favorite TV show of all time. Not only is the story line riveting and rich and the characters robust and beautifully developed, but the acting is simply phenomenal. There were times I actually lost track of the plot because I just so mezmorized by the quality of acting- unlike anything I've ever seen- especially Edward James Olmos as Admiral Adama. The show is quite dark, and pretty intense, but it is truly a beautiful thing to behold. So go on, waste no time. Get to beholding!
