A dilemma of significant proportions

So, say you need a pair of scissors because you don’t have any in your new apartment. You go to Ikea and get some, along with a bunch of other stuff that will need to be unpackaged with said scissors. You get everything home and you are so excited to unwrap everything and make your place feel like a home. You go immediately for the scissors, only to realize you have a serious conundrum on your hands:

Um, I need scissors to unwrap my scissors. But, I need scissors to do that. But...

Um, I need scissors to unwrap my scissors. But, I need scissors to do that. But...

Blog Commenting 101

I love my man's smile in this photo--halfway between adorable and sinister. Just the way I like him. It keeps things interesting.

I love my man's smile in this photo--halfway between adorable and sinister. Just the way I like him. It keeps things interesting.

I am feeling a little lonely on this side of this blog–no one has commented on any of my posts. Part of that is my fault–the blog template I chose doesn’t exactly make it obvious how to comment. So, if you have tried to comment and couldn’t figure out how, here’s a little tutorial. If you haven’t tried, here’s my not-so-subtle hint to do so if you feel the urge at some point. It makes me feel like I’m not just blogging into space. And I know that the things I am posting are just so profound that who WOULDN’T want to comment?? Global warming? Who cares! U.S. Elections? I can’t think why anyone would have any use for it. But my blog? Pure poetry. A reason to live, really.

Okay, back to the tutorial. There are three tabs at the top of my blog header: Home, About Trajectories, and Log In. Click the Log In tab, where you’ll be asked to sign up in order to comment. Don’t worry, they won’t ask for your first-born child, just a username and password.

UPDATE: I changed the settings on the blog, so now you don’t have to register to leave a comment. Hopefully this will make things easier for people!

Then, when you read something I’ve written and thought to yourself, “Wow, that was amazing. I think I should comment on this!!” click the link at the bottom of every post that will say either No Comments (if you are the first one) or X Comments, if other people already have.

It’s that easy! Now go think of interesting things to say because Lord knows this blog needs some comments from people who actually know what they are talking about.

Flight of the Condor. Or Hawk. Or Whatever

As you may recall, I went to a Palinka and Sausage Festival one of the first days we were in Budapest. Along with getting very sleepy from all of the Palinka, I also tried out for a part in an episode of Wild Kingdom. Okay, not really, but I thought I should share, in pictorial format, my run-in with this hawk. At least I think it was a hawk of some sort. (Bird-lovers, don’t get mad if I am completely wrong).

Uh, sir, are you sure this is safe?

Uh, sir, are you sure this is safe?

Okay, easy now...

Okay, easy now...

This isn't so bad...

This isn't so bad...

Hey there, little fella!

Hey there, little fella!

Aaack! What are you doing???

Aaack! What are you doing???

[the fact that I just posted this horrible image of my face for all to see should assure you of my commitment to report the series of events accurately, regardless of possible humiliation on my part]

Is it over yet? Is it over yet??

Is it over yet? Is it over yet??

Oh, hey there little fella...

You think that was funny, huh? This awkward smile on my face says otherwise.
