okay, look – i’ve been BUSY, alright?? get off my goddamn back about it!! we all have lives, okay, and sometimes that real shit gets in the way all the other bullshit we just loooove to do. get it? GET IT?!?!
oh god, okay, don’t… don’t cry. come on. buck up. i didn’t mean to yell. i just… i got a lot on my plate right now. but i care, baby! i care about you. you know i love you. come here. lemme nibble on your ear. no? okay okay! i’ll… can i just hold you? let me hold you. it’ll be okay. we’ll be okay. you know what? i’ll give you a little update. just… a little taste of what i’ve been up to. don’t expect much.
recently, my adventures took me out to the great state of new mexico, with air so dry it makes florida feel like the sweaty armpit that it is. it’s a beautiful area, with beautiful landscapes and scenery. and of course, i had some excellent food during my stay. my “tour guide”, sleep, suggested we pick up some indian flat bread, something he’s loved since his childhood.
set in a ridiculously beautiful, scenic locale, along a long road, lies a small hut selling freshly prepared indian flatbread. delicious, pillowy fried bread, steeped in tradition and history.
it comes out plain, but powdered sugar or honey can be added if you so desire. it’s really good as is, though. i advise you not to go overboard on the sweets. they also offer a “taco” variant, featuring a whole bunch of toppings (beef, beans, lettuce, tomato, etc) on the bread itself. i do not recommend this. the beef is greasy, and the bread becomes soaked and drippy. it’s a real mess to eat, and you lose the flavor of the bread behind mediocre toppings.
we also went to a mexican restaurant called sadie’s. it’s a wonderful place, with a friendly staff, and delicious mexican food. if you’re ever in or near albuquerque, do yourself a favor and check it out.
sadie’s makes their own salsa, which is delicious. perfect amount of spice to it. enough to get your nose running. easy to blow through it all very quickly.
my meal was a delicious combo plate, featuring a taco, an enchilada, and a chile relleno. all excellent.
sleep got the most amazing burrito i’ve ever seen. if i’m feeling lonely at night, i look at this picture.
so yeah, been BUSY. going on trips. working jobs. doin’ shit. i was even in the paper. so relax, baby. we’ll get through this together. you know i love you. now lemme nibble on your goddamned ear.
