I am going to invoke an analogy which may not make any sense (though it does seem apropos with regard to the impending Mayan apocalypse)
Have you ever seen and/or listened to War of the Worlds?
Okay, so the premise is that these virtually unstoppable space aliens invade Earth, killing people left and right, slurping up their bodily fluids for sustenance. Earth is doomed, right? WRONG. The aliens start dying off on account of not having an immunity to all the tiny microorganisms and bacteria that populate the earth. THE EARTH IS SAVED.
Stay with me.

If you’ve never been to Carrabba’s Italian Grill, you’re seriously missing out.
If you have been to Carrabba’s and are on any sort of restricted diet, then you’re probably still missing out. This is on account of Carrabba’s menu being a veritable deathtrap for those of us who crew the Good Ship Mangled Intestines. That is to say, if copious amounts of meat, cheese, and gluten aren’t your bag, then in stepping across the Carrabba’s threshold, you’ve essentially resigned yourself to the salad menu.
And the wine menu. I guess it could be worse.

Confession time: I’m not Jewish.
Not remotely. In fact, my nuclear family is about as WASP as they come. So I’m not exactly sure from whence our infatuation with Hanukkah stems. Would it not mean I was resorting to stereotypes, I might speculate that it shares a common source with our love of Broadway musicals and coupon codes.

If everyone in the world were like me, stores would start playing Christmas music on the autumnal equinox and keep it up until at least President’s Day. Christmas trees would be a permanent home fixtures, and lights and decorations would stay up all year round.
Also, things like Halloween, power tools, and the RNC would probably not exist.

Okay, go ahead. Give me the award for worst blogger of the century. I accept it with no illusions.
At this point, I feel no need to defend myself. Sometimes life just gets crazy. Job opportunities come and go. Hopes spring up and are dashed. Physical, mental, and emotional health fluctuate. Crises of identity are had. New life paths are charted and blazed. And sometimes, well… sometimes it all manifests in the form of a month-long recipe hiatus.
Fortunately, I’ve got myself convinced that this is a perfectly valid response.
