Hi all,

I was gone to a different continent and far far away from Myrtle this summer which is why I didn’t post on Twitter or the blog then. I was back in the beginning of fall and resumed Twittering (hopefully you noticed!) but not blogging.

Why didn’t I post a goodbye note when I left this summer? Because part of me felt very guilty of not being able to Myrtle blog and of letting my beloved readers down. First my excuse was that I needed to concentrate on getting everything ready for my trip and that I’d write the note once in Africa. Then when I got there, internet access was not as regular and I kept prioritizing other things when online. I know, lame. Hopefully you’ll take this weird block as a sign of how much I care…

For now I am back and as soon as I figure out how to mobile blog (especially photoblog) from my new iPhone, I will resume mobile blogging.  I don’t think it will be that long. In the meanwhile I’m a little amused that learning how to  mobile photoblog from a Palm Centro came much easier than learning how to do the same from an iPhone! But it could just be me and where I’m at right now.

In any event, Twitter is definitely the best way to get your Myrtle Shuffle on as my Twitter stream features my tweets and any blog posts. See you on Myrtle soon?

Oh and if there are any new Fort Greene/Clinton Hill tweeps that I haven’t yet added to the neighborhood tweetroll on the blog, please leave me a note in the comments or tweet me.

Ciao!

While hanging out at the Myrtle collapse fundraiser today, someone pointed out this future spot to me.
Is this a bit much? Calls to mind the Obama Fried Chicken that the community in Flatbush protested. Curious to see how Clinton Hill will take this… Personally, I find the use of Obama’s likeness for purely commercial purposes opportunistic and unsettling.

Monday
That was the day I rediscovered SushiD after a hellish workday. I’d neglected it lately for Yamashiro on Myrtle. Their brown rice Dragon Roll was yummy.

During that meal, this tweet struck my attention:
