Getting to downtown Sofia: Part 2

Posted on
Jan 26, 2011

I feel like, in my honest account of Sofia, I’ve been a bit hard on the town. This was not my intention. But whenever a tourist walks through a city, the town is laid bare: all of the good and bad it has to offer can be seen. The locals simply shrug off the negative…

In the wake of last week’s treatise about honestly, I feel I should be truthful about a few more things: The other day, I was eating what I thought were toffee peanuts (as the bag suggested).

I would be remiss if I wrote about Bulgaria and didn’t mention Paris. – Um, no. Not that Paris. Try again. – Yup. That’s him. I didn’t actually ask him whether or not I could use his photo on the blog, so I figured I’d give him a mustache, making him slightly harder to identify.…

  • I told him to stop looking at the camera.
  • Eating junk food on the ferry with this guy right before dinner is kind of the dream.
  • Does it still count as photobombing when you love it?
  • Some hardcore stuff happening in the studio today. #muglife #ceramics
  • Determined to pressure wash my deck on my own.  First, I couldn't get the machine started (they gave me incorrect instructions, I later learned). Then a tube broke, sending water everywhere. I got soaked. They brought over a replacement machine and I FINALLY GOT TO PRESSURE WASH.  For five minutes. Before it ran out of gas (they forgot to fill it). So tomorrow they'll be bringing me some gas. But if you are wondering why I don't just "do it myself", THIS IS WHY. 😅😂😭 #DIYFAIL #newhomeowner
  • Yesterday I picked up my James Beard Award from some of the most wonderful humans, wore it all around Manhattan while grinning like an asshole, and made my friends try it on at dinner.
  • He just walked from Hell's Kitchen to Chelsea with this cookie in tow for me. Who was I in a past life? Because I must have been a saint. #schmackarys
  • A friend gifted us this dish towel for obvious reasons. 😊
  • DnD night with @pippinwaffles.
  • MRI time. I should have clarified: this isn't for my brain tumor, but to make sure I don't have some structural problems in my hip. I'm fine. My brain is fine! 😊
