So here’s a post that I had written out a while back (read: way back in January), but apparently forgot to put online.  Sorry about the long delay folks; I hope this will satisfy you for a little while, and I’ll have a new post out soon…I promise:

This shouldn’t really be news, but I once again have realized that returning back to school from winter break is hard.  After relaxing in Florida with my family and wonderful girlfriend for almost two weeks after Christmas, learning about what goes on in the sigmoid colon – trust me, you don’t want to know – just doesn’t quite do it for me.  The astute reader will have already realized that we are now in the Gastrointestinal sequence, and perhaps you’ve also noticed that it’s not exactly my cup of tea…and boy do I love tea.  Maybe it’s the unappealing gut dissections in anatomy.  Or perhaps it’s learning a hundred different intestinal hormones. Either way, a new topic will be upon us soon, and I’ll soon forget my lack of interest in what’s going on now.

On a completely unrelated note, I’d like to share a Christmas story with all of you.  It turns out I’ve finally grown old and boring.  I first noticed this when I got excited about receiving silverware for my birthday back in October.  However, nothing makes sure your childhood is good and dead like opening up a blender, a mattress topper, and a fire extinguisher on Christmas morning.  Yes, a fire extinguisher.  You want to know the really sad part?  I’m not even that upset about it.  Between my lack of cooking skills and my accident-prone nature, I’m probably going to need it.

P.S. Below are some photos from my vacation in Florida over break.  We spent time on the east cost in Ft. Lauderdale and Miami, then some time on the west coast in Cape Coral, and finally a couple days at…DISNEY WORLD!!!

Bistec de palomilla! One of my favorite Cuban dishes.

Another dolphin!

Okay, last dolphin.
