Yes as many people have pointed out I am MIA, Fallen off the Face of the Earth or maybe otherwise kidnapped. I've been woefully busy lately and I will be awfully busy for the next few weeks. Darn. I'm not trying to ignore anyone and I am looking forward to my own return to blogging. I do have some exiting news and I even have a post in the works that I mean to publish in the next few days. Until then this meme that I was tagged with over a week ago will have to do. (Sorry I didn't see the tag Dr. Mom) :)

The Mets beat the dodgers tonight, 9-5, to sweep the series. Payback for 1988! Yes, I did watch that series, I was only eleven and I've held a dodger grudge ever since. So the Mets will move on and go for the pennant and hopefully the World Series. I just hope their pitching will be up to the challenge (with no Pedro and no El Duque). Go Amazings!
I started a new blog devoted to food, The Wednesday Gourmet, go check it out! This week I'm cooking a sushi inspired dessert! The new blog will serve two purposes. First, it will keep all my foodie posts in one spot. Second, it will motivate me to write about (and cook) at least one nice meal a week. I'll still be keeping up From Sushi To Samurais, so keep tuning in!
