I just got back from vaca in LA. I'm super busy today, but I shall return soon with plenty of drunken stories and incriminating photos.

Actually, just a quarter. But I've decided that's enough to throw a Cinco de Mayo party.
So here's what I'm thinking. Last weekend, my family suggested I have a Memorial Day party (basically, I'm just looking for an excuse to have people over to our soon-to-be-new apartment). But the problem with Memorial Day parties is that people always have eight places to go that day, and lots of people go out of town. Plus, a party couldn't go very late because everyone has to work the next day.
So instead, I'm thinking I should have a Cinco de Mayo party. For starters, it falls on a Saturday this year. Second, people probably don't already have plans that day. And third? Margaritas.
The only problem is, I have no idea what type of food to make that can serve lots of people. With a BBQ, you can grill two dozen hot dogs and hamburgers, and everyone's happy. But with Mexican food, how do you cook for the masses? I've already decided that I'm going to make cream of poblano soup, which I have been obsessed with lately. But other than that, I'm stumped. Give me some ideas!!!!!
By the way, here's me and Laura on 05/05/05. We're totally Mexican.

So, even though I don't advertise my blog at work, and even though I've deleted all posts containing my last name so as not to be found in a Google search (by the way, that means no more using my new last name in comments, folks. It's rough, I know. Think of all the superhero posts I can't do now), I've decided that it's probably not best to rehash some of the hairier details of my job at the moment.
In other news, after two years in our teeny one-bedroom apartment, Chris and I have found a new place. Looks like we're probably moving to west Bucktown. The apartment we found is a two-bedroom two flat with a fenced-in backyard for Rosie, dishwasher (Thank God!), granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and washer & dryer, among other snazzy amenities. But the best part? This place comes with a piano. A FREAKING PIANO! I seriously almost cried when I found out. To think of all the stress relief and happiness those 88 keys will bring ... I can't wait.
