Hello? Hello? Where Are You?

Forgive me Blogger, for I have sinned. It has been 15 days since my last post.

No, I have not abandoned Martini Cartwheels or my fellow bloggers. I have really missed posting and reading all your blogs. I want to blame work, but I know we all are busy and that is probably a wimpy excuse. But, in my defense, work has been very busy and very stressful and my brain is pretty much mush when I get home. See that picture of the smoking martini up there? Well, that took me over an hour to edit out the background, which of course left me quite frustrated and not feeling like posting. See, I thought that the Magic Lasso tool was something else entirely.

I hope to be back to regular posting and reading this week. And I hope to maybe make the posts a little less cautious and sanitized. I'm not sure what that means exactly. I don't plan on dropping F bombs left and right but I would like to use this blog as an outlet for things I keep tucked away in my head.

I hope to be visiting you all this week! Even if I have to do it during Big Brother!

By the way, the picture is of a Onyx Martini, complete with dry ice to add that mysterious potion effect. Very yummy.

(slapping you on the back) Let it all out. Cuss, rant, vent, whatever. You can say your Hail Mary's later... or not.

LOL Amy. I apologize. I promise to try to be better. I would rather blog than work any day!

Hey Tina! That was one yummy martini! I was a good girl - only one. And then some wine. And they mixed surprisingly well.

Thanks Jude for the encouragement. Work is kicking my butt. Never been so busy for such a stretch of time.

Thank you Lesbo! This place makes a mean martini. I love the dry ice on the bottom. The bubbles and smoke make them that much more fun!

Thank you Chewy! Will do. Promise you won't think I'm a big potty mouth? Actually, a consultant at work called me that once. And I try to be good at work.

I'll do you one better Lilli. If you are ever in western Mass, I'll take you out for one of these babies!

Thank you Ms. Solo! I missed all of you very much!
