Paizo Superscriber

Did they offer any explanation or apology for the shenanigans?

Wow, I thought MY job was nuts sometimes! :P

(Oh, wait. It is.) :/

Still, managed to have no events in my theater over the weekend, (Or next week, actually. Don't ask me how I got away with that!) ;)

SO, took family swimming this morning at university pool (allowed to bring family at certain hours only)

And since my 'Pretend to eat healthy, but really just avoid carbs as best i can and pig out on meat and veggies that I Kinda like' plan seems to be working, (Scale says I lost 10 pounds. I'm not sure I believe it, but I like the lies it's telling!) I'm slapping some lime& Seasoning marinated steak on the grill to slap over a salad with tomatoes, avocados, and some homemade dressing.

Last salad involving pork and such was a big success, crossing my fingers!

Busy this weekend actually getting to spend a little time with family, and looking forward to Fathers Day, but I'll catch back up on teh PbP's too! I swear! :)

Actually, it's time for a certain fiery-tempered wizard to get off his duff, and catch up with some more of his journal writing too,... ;P

Pre-emptive Happy Father's Day to all! :D

One of the biggest lies that permeates the food industry right now is that there is some magic "fix everything for everyone" diet. from this story though, I'd say most likely a meat-based diet is in fact the diet that is right for you, not to say processed meat, but that steak for instance. Ah well, enough ranting about the fad-based "healthy living" group. If the diet's working, the diet works for you.

Bad news about bubble tea

They had gotten called in to work unexpectedly (this was not stated in the original message, though).

Bubble tea is full of sugar? I'm shocked. Truly shocked.

I'm always surprised when people think drinks that look like milkshakes and taste like milkshakes are somehow low in calories and high in nutrition.

I'm looking at you, rich high schoolers who slurp down Starbucks whipped creations every day after school.

am actually drinking bubble tea while reading this and giving article the finger

Sorry. I knew that article was click bait, but it was just too easy lol

Wait! When is this! I don't like Father's Day, it's like a mini birthday, and they hate me. :-)

Begins removing all calendars from the Pillow Fort.

Crap! cell phones! damn it!

Yeah, Freehold and I went for bubble teas today.

That said, I have no illusions that it is anything other than a sugar bomb. As Treppa said, it goes with the territory on that sort of beverage.

We also ate poutine, which is just potatoes, stock, and lean cheese, right? Right?


Right!

my home village was first mentioned in a document in 1220, lets see if we can beat their celebration then

Tentaculcat, a creature that is a chimera combination of a cat and an octopus.

What do you mean "do you have a thing for octopuses?" (or cats for the matter)...

German celebrations are sausage festivals.


So, I figure I netted about $1/hour on my new job (not including overhead on the car - repairs, insurance, etc - which would probably bring it into negative range). But I have lost 12 pounds so far without paying for a health club. I think that savings should be included.

In other news, it surprises me that newspaper reporters looking for exploited working man stories haven't checked out their own distribution departments.

Or beer. Often both.

Whichever, they're the wurst.

BA-Zing!!


*sigh* weekend ends...

And I will probably end having no weekend next weekend, because of Airplane Picnic being organized by the Aviation Museum. I might get an extra contract for two days (mostly cleaning after those thousands of dirty visitors).

I will probably take two days off (of my two days off available per month) for the next Monday and Tuesday, though.


I should be already in bed for the last half an hour BTW. Ah, well, I still need to wash my hair...


Not only had I got to bed later than I wanted (which is typical), but I also couldn't fall sleep for rather long, and then woke up a few times.

It's gonna be a wonderful day... *yawn*

I'm a bit out of countenance.

I somehow fell into having a bunch of various alternative/holistic medicine practitioners for clients. Sometimes it's pretty cool, but mostly I cringe at the pseudo-scientific lingo and hand-waving explanations.

Tonight, I was starving, so made shrimp scampi. I felt horrible afterwards.

feeling horrible:
I used to think that feeling horrible after meals was normal, but doctors and friends convinced me that it does not, in fact, happen to everyone all the time. The allergist told me to write down everything that makes me feel sick and avoid it. She thinks the sensitivity is the first step to another anaphylactic reaction. Farewell, shrimp scampi and corn bread!
I took Tums, went to work, got some ginger ale on the way home, no help, felt too sick to go to bed. Then I remembered this weird stuff an herbalist friend gave me for Christmas with instructions to take a packet whenever I feel sick after a meal. I tried it in a rather eye-rolling fashion. Fifteen minutes later, I feel pretty darned OK. I'm no longer wishing to turn inside out and be done with it. In fact, I'm going to go to bed.

But what can I make fun of now? :(

Oh, this stuff goes by "Culing herbal supplement". Turns out that it's an old remedy, and the white people who got it from the Chinese thought they were saying the name of the substance. The Chinese were doing their best to tell the stupid white folks that it was a "curing powder" to cure their stomachs. So, it's available as "Culing" to this day. This amuses me.

The interview went well. I felt a rapport with the lawyer I interviewed with, and she seemed impressed with my bona fides. Sadly, they do not have a position open at the moment, but their firm is growing very quickly, and from what she said they would need help soon.

The location is good. A 45- minute commute from my current residence, nothing I haven't done before. Going over the Bourne Bridge daily is s pain, but only really super annoying in the summer time.

I'd put it in the 'win' category. But, more resumes must be sent out

~sour look on my face~ Thank a bunch, Patrick! I though you were my friend. Here I am, coming in here to "whine" (just really joking to pass some time) about you valuing sleep over me and what do I see? You posting during the night! That is it! Our friendship is over! No one interrupts my "whining" with facts that counteract them!

~grins~
