The Lastest in Word in Dieting

There I am in Safeway, safely doing Safeway type things when I turn the corner and end up next to two women who could easily be part of the cast of the Hills by the way their dressed and coiffed.

Both thin (duh!), but one thin to the point of gaunt. Yes, I'm overweight, but that doesn't mean I don't know when someone is TOO thin. Anyway...her friend turns to her and says "how did you get so thin?". Now, I'm kinda curious. I mean, maybe it is something I can do and then stop before you can see the knobs of my spine. Her answer?

"I only eat when I'm drunk".

Oh. Never mind then.


I'm pretty cool with being single. Most of the time. And time really is a big part of the issue - job and a half, two kids, two dogs a bunny and a house. Where would I find the time?

Perhaps, though, being single isn't the best thing when YOUR OWN CHILD says "you should go on a date, mom." Oh my boy - always my best interests at heart.

They need a better plan.

If my co-worker's are trying to kill me they need a better plan than having a precariously balanced box in the stack area fall on my head. Because it didn't even hurt, let alone injure. Sadly, I did shriek. Because I was listening to music with earphones on and it scared the bejeebers out of me. So I am bejeeber-less. And somewhat embarassed.

Fair Warning

Hurt me and I'll get over it. Hurt my kids and I will hunt you down, vivisect you, spit on the remains and leave you out in the cold unburied and probably not even missed.

Good 'n Bendy

Did you know that if you're about to be late for work and your left hand is stuck in a ring on your key chain it is possible to drive to work (so as not to be late) with your left hand hanging from your key the whole way? Even if you have a manual transmission.

I know what you're thinking, but it getting one key off a key chain isn't easy when you're one-handed.

New Office, New Rules

Yes, I have moved offices. Again. Same company, different space. I fully expect to be moved again within the next year.

This is my first day in the new space and I've learned a few things. For instance; yes, the fire door can be opened without any alarms going off. And yes, if you put a file folder in the door where it latches it doesn't lock behind you. However...those two facts are irrelevant given that there is no handle on the outside of the door. So if one wants to take a break and go stand outside you have to prop the door open, or walk around the whole building barefoot in order to go in the front door, which is what I had to do. Yes, barefoot. Why go stand on the green grass if you have shoes on?

I love Lunch

I find it odd that the work day seems better if I have a great lunch to look forward to. Even better is a day when I have supper simmering away in a slow cooker at home.

Maybe I'm thinking about food too much. But let me tell you in the grand scheme of eating properly - well balanced and nutritious - thinking and planning are essential. I'm looking forward to the arrival of soup season. Not that I'm not enjoying the warm weather, though :)

Hit Me Baby One More Time

The muse has hit. I mean REALLY hit. Everything just sort of exploded in my brain. I am now a writing maniac. Can't stop, because I don't know when the muse will leave, but in the meantime...this is AWESOME.
