My 2014 New Year’s resolution is to blog more. I was inspired by my cousin’s resolution to cancel her gym membership and my brother’s resolution to drink more. Why should resolutions be designed to bum you out? Start the year right with a resolution that will make you happy! So I’m resolving to blog more, play with the dog(s)* more, and eat more pasta. That first one may increase the down-scrolling and notification-deleting burden on you, my five loyal readers, but just think of it as additional exercise for your typing fingers!
In a move that is essentially burning through a month’s worth of good resolution-keeping material on the first day of 2014, herewith a photo dump from the back half of 2013, that is, random cellphone photos that entertain me without actually being worthy of an entire blog post.
From our favorite Denver deli, The Bagel Deli: cheesy jalapeño knishes. Just another reason I love the west!
More Denver/Jewish humor:
Behind the bar at Cholon which, besides having scary creatures in wine bottles, has amazing small plates like duck spring rolls.
Green tea chai latte fail:
Saguaro explaining that it’s time to stop vegging in front of the computer and start throwing the tennis ball.
A little light reading on my way to my cousin’s bridal shower in Portland, Maine.
When shopping for yard clean-up, I had to admire the attention to detail in the browser tab icon for Pet Scoop:
I know on some level I should be offended by this, but I found myself more amused, and admiring the entrepreneurial spirit.
We were very sad to say goodbye to our favorite tapas joint, Ondo’s, where we had a typically amazing meal last night, its last night before closing. Really hoping the owners will find a good space and reopen elsewhere.
Then we closed out the year in typical party-animal fashion:
Happy New Year to all and onward to 2014!
*New puppy coming later this month! Will make the “more blogging” resolution really easy!
YAY new puppy!!! Happy New Year from the Furness/Cunnings (or, as we are sometimes known, the “Funnings”)
Happy New Year backatcha from the FoxRobs! (Love Funnings! You all always seem to have so much fun — music, food, travel!)
To clarify I resolved to drink more and take up smoking in 2013. I am pleased to say that I definitely drank more. Alas, I am still a non smoker. But 1 out of 2 ain’t bad. I’m still working on my 2014 resolutions, but I am thinking about something like “be a little nastier to other people, especially anyone who pisses me off?”
