Minnesotan

I’m a real Minnesotan now. Not only do I vote there, but I just got my real MN driver’s license earlier this week. I love living in the Midwest and Minneapolis is a great city. I’m definitely enjoying this phase of my life 🙂 Minnesota feels more like home, more of a fit for me, than anywhere else I’ve lived since I’ve been 17. So while my driver’s license photo is horrific, it will be nice to fit in.

Ironically, I’m writing today from Iowa, where I’m spending Thanksgiving. I’m headed to Kentucky for Christmas though, which I’m looking forward too. One problem about Minneapolis is that it’s too far from my family.
In other news, Simon the Great sent me a great link from the New York Times today. If you want to chip in to buy a piece of the London tunnels, let me know. We currently have 0 of the required 7.4 million dollars.
Simon and I exchange an average of eight emails a day, many including exciting stuff like the link above. (Simon is the recipiant of all hillarious blogs that appear in my Google Reader. If there’s a piece about spiders lost in space or “Paula Deen is trying to kill us: Thanksgiving edition,” Simon will get it in her inbox. These inevitably lead to threads of emails about space spiders that will take over the universe and links to video of Paula Deen deep-frying cheesecake…just so you have an idea of our communications.) But Simon’s blog, when they write on it (they being Simon and Ivan, her partner in crime), is fantastic. So while I’m busy writing up some of my recent cooking adventures, hop over to her site to read a hysterical piece on alpacas.
