I'm with you! Next year this family is hitting the road. After several years of in-laws, I think next x-mas I get a vacation!! In case blogger doesn't know who I am, this is Stacie! Happy New Year!

Holy Hannah, who knew?

Hope you had a great holiday (and that you finally got some sleep!)

Oh. My. Goodness.
I almost burped just looking at them.

Hey, Stacie, I've already started my Christmas in Oaxaca 2007 campaign. Rob was mildly impressed by the radish slide show, but I think root scupltures aren't compelling enough to move him to agree with my plan. We'll see. But I think it sounds FABULOUS. What could be more relaxing than kicking back, eating Mexican food, and carving radishes for three days?

cw: Caravan to Oaxaca?

b.: Try Beto's. Break yourself in easy.

Wow, I must have Oaxacan roots because one time when I was little I told my parents I wanted a big box of radishes for Christmas! Seriously, I'm not making this up, I really did. I was just going through a bit of a radish phase I guess--that's normal, right?

Hope you had a lovely Christmas, Geo. I miss you!

Geo said...

Amy! I always suspected you were part Mexican. My sweet radish soul sister, if you want to join my pilgrimage to Oaxaca (I love to say that out loud, with a lot of breath), I would dearly love your company! Maybe when your stint in Boston is over . . . ? I miss you too!

Yet another reason I'm dying to go to Oaxaca. I'm not the radish fan (my other half is crazy about them) but I like the artistry of it all. I have always wanted to go to Oaxaca (ever since the Zapatista Rebellion--does that make me weird?)

Geo said...

If you'd said you'd wanted to go to Oaxaca ever since seeing Nacho Libre, I might have said, Okay, you're weird.

Now I'm dreaming of a Bloggerette holiday radish outing to Oaxaca.

I must say that after reading Oliver Sak's Oxacan Journals, I was much enchanted at the diversity of such a place but I never imagined such creative radish fetishes.

Geo said...

Welcome, nohno! I see you have no blog, but I did read your profile. We are neighbors, nearly. In fact, I suspect I know you. You don't, perchance, share my great love of all vegetables orange? Did you give me a recipe this week (a really good one, by the way)?

I'd like to read those journals. I enjoy Oliver Sacks too.

wow--another thing to celebrate on December 23rd along with Festivus and Joseph Smith's bday (which we celebrate by reading the Nephite Christmas story and eating JS birthday cake).happy new year, amiga! Don't forget to get a passport is you're going to Mexico!

jamie: That's quite an array of red-letters, isn't it? I'm not sure how well the three events mix, but it might be interesting to try. Love you.
