I've been a little MIA from the blog lately. Boston happened, which left me in shape to be talking great food. I was enmeshed in reading Dances with Dragons, which is 1040 pages! (just finished by the way - oh my god, I can't wait until the next book comes out!) On top of that, my allergies have been debilitating these past two weeks. I mean, seriously, enough is enough. Shouldn't I be used to all these Californian pollens or whatever by now? Ugh. It feels like I have a cold without the body aches. Which isn't that bad I guess. Who am I kidding, having a cold or flu is way worse than allergies, but this is straight up annoying. I've been on four or five different pills to try and suppress the congestion, watering eyes and itchy ears. Some make me feel like I'm on crack, at least what I think it might feel like to be on crack. Some make me feel drunk and loopy. It's not pretty people.
And I feel like every time I get a stuffy nose I can't taste anything. But the one good thing about my allergies is that I didn't loose my taste buds at all! So even though I feel like sh*t, I am grateful I can still enjoy food.
