New focus

Posted on September 05, 2009
I started a new blog to focus on food - I will continue to use this space sporadically, but any food posts will be found here. I didn't want the posts there linked to some of my more angsty posts here, so I would prefer if anyone is still reading here that you didn't link back to here from that blog...

The funk

Posted on August 30, 2009
Woe is me, for I am in a funk. I should be in a great mood, because for the first time since I quit my job to go to law school, I have an office. Yes, it is true - an office. With a door. And I'm the only one that sits in it.BUT. The new building our company moved into has four floors...

Sunday cooking

Posted on August 16, 2009
I went to work for a couple of hours this morning, quickly wrote some things, and hightailed it home. Because today it is Sunday, and today I feel like cooking.Sage roast chicken + yukon gold potatoes & roast carrots:French bread:Banana bread with chocolate and ginger (slightly modified from another recipe in Orangette's book):Cashew chocolate crinkle cookies:Mapo tofu (with green beans from the garden):Yum.

Everybody's working for the weekend

Posted on August 13, 2009
At least I am. I am DRAINED this week.Last week, a small group of people were re-audited because there were "concerns" about their performance. I was not in that group, praise jeebus. But a few of my classmates were. A couple of them did not make it through and are no longer with the company...

We have a ridiculous number of tomatoes. The garden is a wonderful thing, but having a garden is not like going to the store - I would like 5 to 10 nice, ripe tomatoes a week. Year round. Instead, for two months we are buried in tomatoes (so much so that I begin to hate the sight of them, just a little) and the rest of the year I pine for them...

This just in: plaid is apparently

Posted on August 05, 2009
This just in: plaid is apparently huge for fall. D'oh. Please, someone stop me if I try to recreate eithe my Catholic school years or my "grunge" years.

I was out of town for many days

Posted on July 30, 2009
I was out of town for many days and had no internet. Althouse posted 90 items. LOL Cats posted 49. I don't know if this means anything at all.


Posted on July 11, 2009
I got my new phone last week, and activated mobile posting. Hopefully I will post more often - I get stuck in this rut where I feel like I have to post something epic and meaningful since I haven't posted in so long. But then I don't have time, or I have nothing that feels sufficiently deep to post about, and I put it off again (I am a lawyer, procrastination is second nature)...

Testing mobile post.

I have a shirt problem.Also a font problem above, apparently. Why is everything underlined?Anyway, see above re: shapeless weird shirt. What should I do with it?Fashion bloggers say, wear a belt. So I acquired a giant belt.My sister says, now wear it with pants, not a skirt...

Blah blah blah

I am so bad at blogging! I am also bad at work-life balance and at eating less than 1400 calories a day. Oh well.1. WorkNear-constant. I worked three weeks straight and then took a day off, and enjoyed it so much I took a day off the next weekend too...


Posted on April 20, 2009
I still suck at blogging! Surprise! Oh well.I made a variation of this salad on Saturday - quite tasty, thanks Heidi! Here are the modifications I made:1. I used craisins instead of raisins - I hate raisins. I don't know why, I know they are just dried up grapes...

Dude. Srsly.

I took a day off yesterday! It was awesome. I did exactly nothing all day long. The last day I had off at home was March 7th. We were in Vegas for 5 days at the end of March, but when I came back everything was a shitstorm... and I was working like crazy before leaving too...

April Fool's Day

Posted on April 01, 2009
Carol wins.


Posted on March 25, 2009
I am terrible. I never post, and when I do post I have nothing interesting to say.1. Work is crazy! Also, I am working all the time and so (a) have very little besides work to talk about and (b) am really tired.2. We went to Vegas. It was fun. I think we stayed about a half day too long, because by the end of it I was about ready to stab my mother (she's living there this winter) and also was dying to not see anyone's ass on a billboard when I left the house...

Getting paid for working on the weekends.A 50+ degree day in February.Figuring out how to change my bike pedals.New yellow purse.Friends that come visit from KC.Belgian beers and frites. Dogs to sit with while I play on the intertubes.I am very lucky...

Very very

Busy.  Work has picked up, and so I've been working some weekends to keep on top of things.  It's not bad though, because I got paid double time this weekend (whoo!  holiday weekend!) for 13 hours of work.  Also, the work is interesting and the time always goes quickly...


Posted on January 11, 2009
Happy 2009! I suck at blogging still. Oops.Resolution recap:1. Gym going well. Plan for this year is 2x a week spinning, 2x a week circuit/strength training, and 2x a week plain ol' boring cardio.2. I have been flossing every day. Yay.3. Curt has been to the gym 3x a week for...

Merry, merry, merry.

I had a snow day on Friday, December 19th. It was a perfect illustration of how my new workplace values its employees over the almighty Must Put In Forty Hours Or Turn Into A Toad attitude of most employers. Also, it was really nice to be able to stay home and bake cookies...


Posted on December 18, 2008
It's thundering! And snowing! I really hope they cancel everything tomorrow so I can stay home and bake cookies.br /br /I have nothing to complain about at work. This is remarkable, even though it has only been a bit over a week. br /br /Everyone is really, really nice...

New job

Posted on December 13, 2008
I suppose I should keep this story going and tell about the new job, eh? I'm sure you've all been waiting with baited breath.The new job is going well. It is like night and day from the old place - when I started, my desk was set up and I had pens and a stapler and sticky notes...

We're famous!

Well, maybe not. But Omaha is!(Thanks to Brooke for passing this along!)

Letter of Resignation

Posted on December 07, 2008
Not the one I actually gave my boss. But the one I wish I could have given him...My last day there was Friday. I start New Job on Wednesday. I am hopeful that it will work out - that I can quit being so freakishly obsessed with figuring out what to do with my life and just LIVE my life...

By the power of Grayskull...

Posted on November 28, 2008
Or of the intertubes. All of your good vibes must have worked, because I had my second interview on Wednesday and got a job offer that afternoon. Yay! Now I need to figure out what to say in my letter of resignation. Perhaps I will draft two - one that I will actually give to my boss, and one that says everything I wish I could say in the other...


Posted on November 20, 2008
I have a second interview next week. Eeeeeeeeee.


Posted on November 17, 2008
Why haven't they emailed me to set up another interview?  Why don't they loooooooooooooooove me?Augh.  Hate waiting.


Posted on November 17, 2008
No call.  No email.  I feel like a teenager waiting to be asked to prom.  Sigh.  In the meantime, I am trying (desperately) to concentrate on my current job and learn how to do it.  Just in case I actually uh, have to do it eventually...

Today I am

Posted on November 16, 2008
Cooking like crazy.  I made a spinach and chard risotto, baked Louisiana red beans and rice, and cheddar chicken chowder.Avoiding thinking about work.  Trying to at least.  I am dying to see what kind of crazy this week will bring.  And also if I will really get a second interview with this company...


Posted on November 12, 2008
So I think it went well.  The guy told he that I'll be brought in for a second round of interviews sometime in the next couple of weeks.  My current boss finally hired a receptionist.   She started yesterday.  She's very nice and I think is going to get screwed over 8 ways from Wednesday working at this place...


Posted on November 10, 2008
Please wish me luck tomorrow at noon, as I have an interview then.
