I feel pretty boring! I haven't had any funny stories, so I've stayed away from posting and stuck to reading. I figure I'd better post so my blog doesn't go out of service!

I am actually going to a shooting range tomorrow to be trained as a sharpshooter, which will be interesting, and (hopefully) successful. We had a dry fire today, so I am now capable of shooting an empty gun very quickly, unloading and loading empty magazines, and pulling a useless safety. Tomorrow will be the true test of my skills, as all of the rounds will be LIVE!

On that note, I've decided to start working out again and become a modified vegan. I've been a vegetarian for a while now, but every once in a while I'll go on a vegan kick. The worst thing about being a vegan is everyone and their mother asking you why you are a vegan, and then STARING at your plate! So a modified vegan I feel is not as obvious...I really try to avoid dairy products, but I definitely don't beat myself up if there is some cheese or eggs mixed into my meals.

C and I are realizing that it is pretty difficult to spend time together. What with the cornucopia of guests we've been entertaining since moving into the new apartment, we're going to have to start planning dates in order to get us out of the apartment and away, together. So far, I've been thinking about cooking classes at Great News Cooking School - how good does this one sound? Margaritaville: Recipes: Frozen Mango Margaritas; Blended Margarita with Homemade Sweet-Sour Mix; Hand-Shaken Citrus Gold Margarita; Smoky Black Bean Dip with Bacon; Shrimp Soft Tacos with Chipotle-Cilantro Crema; Rio Grand Grilled Chicken Breasts Topped with Creamy Rajas (Chili Strips); Southwestern Spiced Rice with Black Beans and Corn; Mexican Chocolate Torte with Brown Sugar Glaze and Cinnamon Ice Cream.

I'm not sure how this blog stuff works since I'm over the age of 30 (haha!) but I was thrilled to have my site mentioned on your blog. I didn't know how to contact you, other than to leave a comment. So... good job on the blog, and thanks again for having MermaidHut.com on your site.
