I'm probably a better write now, though. And definitely not as broke.
I also used to pride myself in the rugged ability to get around by bike and public transportation, but now I have a car that I kinda love, The Scionallite of Love. It's a stick-shift, so it's kinda like I'm still roughing it. Which, speaking of roughing it, I just bought an A/C a couple days ago and I'm planning to ride out the rest of the summer very near to it. I feel slightly guilty about it, but my house has solar panels so I'm calling it a draw.
I cook a lot. I just learned how to make Kim-chee, before that it was homemade sausage and before that, bread. And I have a fairly diverse repertoire of Italian, Thai, Mexican and breakfast dishes that make the rotation. I have a garden that grows from compost made by my little worm friends. There's several hundred of them and I have names for all of them.
I have Resting Nice Face,
