I've been a bad blogger lately. I think I seem to have more absences than I have periods of consistent posting. And I can't really explain why it is, except that lately I have felt pulled in several directions at once.

Oh, also I've been a wandering nomad. After spending two months in New York, I spent a week in Chicago. And now I'm in the SF Bay Area for a couple weeks before I go to LA.

So let's see. I'm in California. I'm applying for full time jobs. Which is basically a full time feat. Meanwhile, I'm trying to do some writing privately on a couple things I have going. A novel that I've been mulling over for the best part of five years.

What else? I made the turkey for our Thanksgiving dinner for twenty. An impressive feat for the girl who two years ago couldn't cook a turkey burger on a Foreman, don'tchathink? I also made a vegetarian stuffing and cauliflower gratin. The stuffing was actually the biggest headache. I wanted to use store bought bread stuffing mix, because I just did not have time to sit there and toast and cut up loaves of bread. Big mistake. I had to go to four stores in search of stuffing which didn't contain high fructose corn syrup.

And this week I've been just eating left overs! How very No Waste of me. But really it's because I'm too lazy to go grocery shopping.

Anyway. Bay Area bloggers, let's meet up! The rest of you, I love you, and I'm sorry I'm such a bad blog buddy.

Nice job on the Thanksgiving meal. I delegate all special-occasion cooking to Mr E Man, who is much more confident and less flappable than me!

So... you're still living in NYC, right?! Where are you concentrating your job search? Or are you looking at opportunities across the country/continent/world?!

I am kind of not living anywhere at the moment. But I'm currently in the San Francisco area applying for jobs. I think I'd prefer to stay here ... I came home and remembered that California is way more awesome than any place else! But I am applying to jobs all over the place. So we'll see what happens.

Welcome back to the blogosphere! I've been kinda absent myself. Blogging ebbs and flows, like most things in life.

Also very impressed with your Thanksgiving turkey--like Cath, I relegate special occasion cooking to my husband. And yes, looking for a job is itself a full-time job. Good luck in that department. I hope you find what you want, and in the place that you want.

Finally... a novel? I would love to read it =) I'm trying to devote time to fiction writing myself... But even finishing a single short stoy is a long hard slog for me. I think a novel would kill me!

I hadn't checked in a while, but I'm glad you're back!

Please write a glamourous transnational green chick-lit novel, Ruchi. Please?
