Warning: this is a really poor excuse for a blog entry. But I feel like I have to post something so that you know I'm still here. I was away in Hamburg last weekend (which I'll blog about soon) and have otherwise been busy with stuff at the institute (including preparations for my upcoming presentation on May 5th - eek!). I'll bring you up to speed on all of this (I know -- promises, promises) very soon.
Oh, and why the title No More Cake? Because I'm officially, publicly, with YOU as my witness, renouncing Central European pastries, especially cake-like delicacies. They are tasty, they are seductive, and they are EVERYWHERE. I could eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and as snacks in between. But I'm not going to, because from now on (well, at least while I'm in Europe) my new mantra is "no more cake."
Farewell my fond, fluffy, sweet, delicious friend.
