So I update my site after several months and I get one comment??

Clearly, Apollo is my only real internet friend. *tear*

It’s cool, I dig it. Holidays, busy times, finals . . . whatever other crap is plaguing your life at the moment . . . it’s a tough time for a blogger to end a period of truancy. I also suspect the lack of photos and a cohesive recipe may be to blame. Long story short, I am (temporarily) bereaved of my beloved 50mm lens (the one that took all those lovely photos everyone likes) and thusly am forced to endure the frustration of using some other, vastly inferior lens. With a zoom. Which you would think might make my task easier, but in reality does not.

SO I will try to snap some photos of what I’m talking about as I prepare it for my family and dearest friends.

Um, okay. I’ll end my guilt-inducing lecture with that.

  1. Brett Said,

    We’re all just shy ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Rodger Said,

    Sorry, I was half asleep. At one point I thought you were smearing paste onto crackers. Delusional? Maybe just completely.

  3. Janice Said,

    Aw, damn, now I feel bad. Sorta ๐Ÿ˜‰ you DID desert US after all……


    And actually, yes, there was lack of photo and recipe….and ummmmm, well, I have a short attention span…?

    Good to ‘see’ you though for real and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

  4. Leah Kleylein Said,

    LOL!! don’t worry, I still check on you, you just caught me at the end of a 3-month blog-reading hiatus due to work!! I’ll be waiting for when you come back!

  5. Kristin Said,

    See, now you’re just fishing for compliments ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I hope you have a fantastic holiday season and come back with a new camera and lots of tasty food pictures to post!

  6. Tim Said,

    When you stopped posting regularly, there was just no reason to read any blogs…

    Gad you are back??

  7. Will Said,

    This is a guilt comment.

  8. kacie Said,

    i was happy to ‘hear’ from you today. i miss all the lovely recipes.

  9. Kiera Said,

    I’m still here! I just didn’t have much to say about cheese platters. I guess I could have said


  10. G Said,

    umm…yup…shy … that we are ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. Mr. P Said,

    Missed you!

    Are you going to be around more in the New Year? I can’t bear the withdrawal!

  12. Jiro! -Fattyjnl Said,

    We love you and miss you!!! You have internet friends!

  13. nat Said,

    i’m here! i’m here!

  14. melissa Said,

    I am TOTALLY glad you’re back. I just didn’t post because I was late reading it. It’s ok, though, I have a note from my mom.

  15. Kabooken Said,

    I love cheese

  16. Amber Said,

    I’m here! I check in every once in a while and normally i get an email if you update…but I haven’t been checking my other email so I missed this till I was searching through twitter and realized that I accidentally unfollowed you. I’m back though!. ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. con Ka Said,

    This post works. I’m feeling terribly guilty. May I use it on my blog? ๐Ÿ˜€

  18. Rachael Said,

    It didn’t show up in my Google Reader! Only this post did! *shakes fist at google reader*

    my comment would have been, “I wish my boyfriend liked cheese like any sane human being”

  19. Heather Said,

    too much last minute holiday preps, sorry for the lack of (shown) love. Happy Holidays!!! & very glad to have you back!

  20. Marisa Said,

    YAY!!!!! Happy you’re back. Only now catching up on all my google reader stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Kat W Said,

    Always happy to hear from you, ya little stinker! Happy holidays! See…that guilt just slides right off. : )

  22. Kat W Said,

    AND hope you get your camera situated. Boo!

  23. Tami Said,

    Merry Christmas!! I still check in on you, I’ve just been busy….and sick! ๐Ÿ™ A couple of my daughter’s 1st grade classmates decided to share their holiday Strep Throat sickness so my kids and I are battling that now.

    I hope to get back to blogging this coming week! (Gotta say….you drive a mean guilt trip! ;))

  24. Poonie Said,

    Now that’s not fair! I thought we we’re on a “break”. LOL! Didn’t you run off to get married? I still check the blog every so often. Once you get your 50 back you should post a pic of the new tat! ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Mary Said,

    Hilarious! I immediately felt the need to comment that I’ve been out of town with no internet and only now catching up with my Bloglines… ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. stephchows Said,

    nice guilt trip ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m trying to decide on a 50mm lens… the 1.8 is only $100 but the 1.4 is like 350??? worth it??? I have no idea… any thoughts? ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Christa Said,

    Pht! I don’t feel bad. I very, very rarely get comments. I’m lucky if anyone finds my life interesting enough to even glance at. ๐Ÿ™‚

    (Well, that’s fine, actually – it’s a good thing my life isn’t too interesting, then I wouldn’t be happy with the little things.)

    There! Now you’ve gotten 27 comments! ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Jade Said,

    I have recently stumbled across your fabulous blog. i found myself wanting to make every single thing and sitting at work making grocery list after grocery list, as well as coming back the next day to work with my left overs and not being able to eat any because everyone eats it all before i get a bite. ๐Ÿ™‚
    my husband also loves that i have found these recicpes, his favorite is the mama zumaรขโ‚ฌโ„ขs red hot gams, although mine did not come out as crunchy looking as yours did, it was still amazing. i made the rainbow cake for a friends bday, it was so beautiful. anyhow, your blog and photos were really inspiring and made me feel excited about cooking again.
    please continue to keep up the amazing work!!
    thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. ansella too lazy to login Said,

    ‘really enjoy the pictures and want to grab some of the little mice’ ๐Ÿ˜€ so much tempted….
