I took a freelance job with Busy Dad that had me on the road at least once every month in 2011.

    So glad you get to be home with the chillins for a while. Maybe that scary next step will lead to travelling too. (just maybe a little less)

    That was the best round up of roundups ever written in the civilized world. Also, your New York drinking with communists one reminded me that I found something in my jacket pocket the next day.

    That Starbucks pic is the best ever.

While I was in China last fall, they offered me a tea egg, which is just a hard boiled egg steeped in soy sauce and black tea leaves, which is harmless enough except that it is a brown egg, and I took enough ServSafe courses in my day to know that you never, ever eat the brown egg.
