A Glass of Chianti

Never a Texan*, not yet** a New Yorker

The earlier post... she was eaten! Multiple times!

I'm running out the door and increasingly frustrated at Blogger. Perhaps when I return there will be a post about how the best comparison for Peter Jackson's Bad Taste is to the great (and, tragically not available on Region 1 DVD) 1954 Johnny Guitar. Just because it's compared to a great movie, though, don't assume it is a great (or even good) movie.
In the mean time, amuse yourself with the penguins. (Pictures courtesy of The Great Yankee husband, just so you know.)

* at least technically
** and quite likely never

... of a pictorial sort.
(A few) Wedding pictures here.
Some honeymoon pictures. (Please note that I spent the whole afternoon squinting into the sun before commenting on the lack of loveliness of my countenance.)
The new neighborhood (A game: find the really famous Fort Worthian in that set).
We went to the zoo! (Penguin pictures to come, people!)

Now that I have a regular schedule and we're finally settled into the apartment, I can finally say with complete confidence that regular blogging will resume tomorrow. Hooray!

Almost Sunday in New York

Tomorrow will be my first, so it still remains to be seen if this song is an accurate depiction of life in the Yankeeland Central after Mass. The blow-by-blow (blog-by-blog?) account of our first Weekiversary is here should you be interested in how two newlyweds in the big city capped their first week of married life (hint: more Chianti than you can shake a stick at).

I had my first "New York moment" on Wednesday. Angus and I were walking down the sidewalk on the way home and all I could do was think about how annoying it was that the girl walking in front of us was going soooooo slowly. Would it have killed her to speed up?!? *sigh*

Blogging will still be light for the next week or so while Angus and I are settling in. After that, though, I'll have lots of hours in the day to fill while Angus is off working and before my lessons start in the afternoons. Let the return to blogging begin (in a week or so)! ;-)

Someone's getting married


I'm sure there will be pictures and updates on this crazy day in not too many days (but certainly not until we're all settled in in the Big Yankee City on Sunday). In the mean time, though, there will be much barbeque to be had. Prayers are always appreciated as are tips as to where a Texan can get a good meal in Yankeeland...

Have fun, y'all!
