Happy New Year (+ 2)

I realize I'm a couple days late, but I still need to say this:

Happy New Year!!!

The New Year was Sunday, and I have not excuse. I missed it. But I thought I'd take a chance here to say hi to all of my friends in Asia and around the world, and wish you each a fantastic year of the Dog.

That, and I'll take a couple lines here to update everyone on what's happening in the life of a House of Wonks. There's still 5 of us living here. We're cooking a little less often than we used to, but hopefull sometime soon work will settle down and everyone will be cooking again.

The four roommates are all busy keeping the gears of government turning in their own ways, and I'm deeply engaged in the non profit world--thinking in a tank.

All of my roommates are now in relationships, all with cool people.

In other news, I passed the Foreign Service Exam a couple weeks ago, so in a year or two, all things working out right, I'll be eligble to work for the State Department as a Foreign Service Officer. But that's a long way out, so I'm not too worried.

I'm not really good at writing about people, so I'm going to cut it off here. Sorry for subjecting everything to this... I'll be back to policy next time.

Sometimes it doesn't hurt to practice stuff you're NOT good at... ;)

Hope you're doing well. Give the Boy a call. I've been boring lately, and he misses you. In a manly way, of course.
