This blog has been keeping track of my adventures since 2004. The stories and the adventures have come from my college dorm room to Uganda, Peace Corps Kyrgyzstan, learning Dutch in the Netherlands to living in the wilds of Homer, Alaska. I went back to school in Amsterdam to study Theaterwetenschap (Theatre Science) at University of Amsterdam. And now my adventures as a Fruit Fly, a Sexy Unicorn, and creating a movement with Team Sparkle in Chicago.

It's not just because I am heading into my 8th day of fasting. Not because my tummy is rumbling. Not because I have been looking up recipes that I wanna try and cook. No none of these reasons are why I'm about to type this next sentence:
I do, I really love sandwiches. I love the whole idea of two slices of bread with a slice of meat a slice of cheese. Not enough foods involve the word slice and sandwich is just choke full of them.

ooooo what about Grilled Cheese sandwich? I haven't had one of those in well over a year...maybe two. When I get off this fast I need to make one of those with some tomato soup.

oh, I need to go before I get on to that wonderful topic of soup. Cold Shower, I need a cold shower.

    You crack me up.

    Why are you fasting? 8 days is a long time - is this a full fast? Or a certain kind? Religion related? I'm curious... I don't think I could do it!
