One Year and Ten Days

Hi everybody, here I am in Nicaragua, and guess what. It's just about the same as when I left a month ago! Not much new to report, except for how nice it was to see the people I've missed while I was gone. I'm settled back in to ye olde casa de Managua for a few days, and then I'll take off for Matagalpa later this week.

So here is what I have to report, with no small degree of astonishment. It appears that while I wasn't looking, this blog turned one year old. **Clang!** (That was the sound of my jaw hitting the floor. From the sound of it, both my jaw and the floor are made of some highly resonant metallic substance. This may or may not bear future consideration.) At any rate, for what it's worth I'd like to wish myself a happy blogiversary, even if I am ten days late.

Other points of interest:

1. A mighty big round of applause to my wonderful friend Octavia, who managed to get herself engaged over the inaugural weekend. Hooray!

2. In the course of his research down in Panama, my friend Mutt happened to find one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen. It appears to be a tourism pamphlet for Chinese prisons. You should check this out; it's utterly bizarre, and Mutt is hilarious.

3. One year ago today on Cheastypants:

Congrats to Octavia! I see a tacky bridesmaid dress in your future (not that Octavia has bad taste--every dress created for a bridesmaid is tacky! Oooo...maybe it will have a big bow or poufy sleeves....)

For my next vacation I am planning a trip to China, I hear they serve you three squares a day.

Hooray for Cheasty and persevering for a year! I am so glad I stumbled upon your blog. You make me smile.

Happy Blogversary!! It's true time flies by when you are having fun. :)
Hope you are enjoying the nice warm weather there, as it has gotten really cold and foggy here in Austin.
