I'm Baa-aack!

gluten free food
Aloha! I'm back on the blog and back home. I went to Jamaica in Jan. and again in Feb. and just returned from 11 days on Kauai! I also went to the Super Bowl. I've been having tons of fun, as well as tons of stress, and not much gluten!
Let's get you up-to-date:
I flew to San Antonio over Turkey Day 2008 and the city was kindof a letdown. The RiverWalk seemed to be the only draw and I wasn't too impressed. I was shocked that my best friend (I hate the acronym bff) whom I like to call MyChineseSister (she's half Chinese, half Jewish, all American) and her fiancee (She's 35 and he's 28) were bickering the entire 5 days. I had been nervous that I'd feel like a 3rd wheel around them and feel a longing for a boyfriend, but not the case!ugh. I take his side, she was being mean and nitpicking him. This trip made me even more relieved and ecstatic to be single! Think of all the drama, consoling, analyzing what I did and his reactions, trying to please him efforts, disappointments in him, and arguing that I've avoided! Right on!

GLUTEN-FREE HEAVEN ON EARTH: The Lil'Aussie Bakery in San Antonio! MyChineseSister (MCS) who is a natural hostess and stocked up on gluten-free stuff to prepare for my arrival and loves to taste-test it all herself, found this place online and took me there, sight unseen. I got chills when I realized their entire restaurant menu and bakery are gluten free! Uncharacteristically and uncontrollably, I teared up when the waiter arrived at our cute table on the front porch of an old renovated home-turned restaurant with a basket of warm gluten-free bread! He asked who was gluten free and I said "me" and he said, You don't have to tell me anything! I was speechless, which is rare for me. MCS took my picture with her cell phone because I was shaking and trying not to cry. I had Texas brisket sandwich and coconut cake. We brought three other slices of cake home, they were all as divinely delicious as they were lovely and appealing. We returned one more time on my 5 day trip. Amazing!
Over Xmas, there was a really juicy situation that occurred where the FBI guy (my friend whom I began dating) got jealous and texted my ex (The Detective) with my phone, and The Detective ended up coming right over-thinking the text was from me (remember he moved into my friend's condo last year and lives one fwy exit from me)...so I STOPPED dating the FBI and re-started dating the detective (but since he lost his job and is mysterious about it and claims to sell travel now, I guess we can rename the detective to Travel Dude.) I also met a nice dad online who is in awesome shape, and I'll call TwinAbs. He has twin daughters and is very soft-spoken, but he works nights so I only see him about once a month.
