Actually, it was a turkey on wheat with bacon, but who’s counting. And with that, another Restaurant Week comes to a close. Thanks for being such a sport. Ahem.
Remember when I used to post about each night of Restaurant Week on each night of Restaurant Week? Remember when we used to actually go to real restaurants each night and not take the slacker way out with carryout from pizza places and sandwich shops? Yeah, me too. Anyway. Sunday: Pizza, carryout. Monday: Sandwiches. Oh… Continue reading Restaurant Weak
So, Saturday we went to a restaurant down in the city. Very far in the city. Our house is 6-7 miles from the northernmost spot in the county; the restaurant was a few miles from the southernmost point in the county. The drive was 45 minutes each direction. Starters: Gene had fried green tomatoes (hmm,… Continue reading Restaurant Week: Saturday
So! Cheesecake City Restaurant Week has begun. We have tentatively scheduled a culinary adventure for every night between yesterday and next Sunday night. I say “tentatively” because we’ve given ourselves an out if work is too busy, too stressful, goes too late etc or if we’d rather just stay at home and eat pizza. Considering… Continue reading The Longest Week
Hi all. So, here’s what is up with me in no particular order: 1) Saw my dermatologist last week, she’s advocating coal tar as this visit’s miracle cure for my psoriasis. Guess what smells terrible? Coal tar. On the bright side, it is working I think. I’ve got coal tar lotion, some kind of mystery… Continue reading This week
(First Day in New Job! New Desk! Same Everything Else!) 1) Got to work early to catch up with stuff, prepare for back to back training sessions 2) Ran web meeting with client (which I’d totally forgotten about until I saw it in Outlook – “CALL CLIENT NOW!”) 3) Trained 1st client on new time… Continue reading And here’s my day
Well, most people did anyway. Turned 36 yesterday. What the hell? (Here’s what I know: I’d better be in a place in my life where I can go someplace amazing to turn 40 at, to soften the blow. I’m not very good at getting older, the entire concept genuinely puzzles me. More about that later.)… Continue reading They say it’s my birthday…
So! I just got back from my visit to Indianapolis. I cannot even put into words how wonderful it was. I hadn’t been home in so, so long. A ridiculously long time. How did I go nearly 2 years without seeing my family in Indiana? And it wasn’t enough time, even though I could have… Continue reading Indiaaaaana, you old banana….
So, I believe I have said before that I say at least one crazy ass thing per day at work. Thursday, the Vatican elected the new Pope. My manager said the new Pope’s from Argentina. I stood up, waved my arms over my head and said “I’M THE NEW POPE-A!” I may or may not… Continue reading Insane Thing I Said on Thursday
(This is one of the reasons why I don’t write here as often anymore…almost my only topic of conversation is work. Good days at work, bad days at work, promotions, hating my job, loving my job, the devil known as year-end, etc. Boooooring). Anyway, today was a crappy day. Really, the last week has been… Continue reading Do Payroll
