Well hello. Back in the states for a couple of weeks (17 days), time split more or less utterly unevenly between New Jersey and New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Apologies for the blog taking an unexpected hiatus due to “China” and then me being alternating lazy, sick, and busy to get around to figuring out VPN nonsense. We’re leaving that to the new year.

I’m both wired and jetlagged, which explains both the timestamp of this post and the fact that I had a stunningly coherent bbm exchange with my friend who’s currently in Barcelona. In summary, be in touch if you’re around town in the next few weeks, at the very least there are about five thousand new places I would like to eat and/or drink at, and no one likes drinking alone.
