Ate berries and mascarpone last night while waiting for my beef heart stew to cook. Said stew contained 1 cart, 1 celery rib, 1 zuke, 1 tom, 2 lb heart, 1/2 med yellow onion, 1/2 head garlic, 3 strips bacon, 3 tbsp bacon, 3 tbsp cows blood, and 1 green bell pepper with 2 added cups of water. Ate maybe a cup of that and then talked to my husband for awhile. I think I'll start using the Blueprint as a layout for my daily summary posts come this evening.
haha, leapfrog with a unicorn, the sexual innuendo and bloody imagery that arises........... :3
Nah, I joke I don't take it personally, I actually like your down to the point journal, it's how it should be! It's the rest of us that take it a tad further with long, excruciating posts about skin blemishes ;P (gee I wonder who that might be).
Besides you're a young, sharp scientist chick, I don't expect overly dramatic post from you :3
That's left for us aspiring writers :D
But you should post a recipe or two cause your noms are YUMS.
Which ones do you want, meaty? I'll warn you, a lot of my stuff is throw it in the pot and hope it works.
I did a strange thing yesterday: I stood up to boss's boss. We were in the hallway passing conversation (how are you, dadadada....) and he "accidentally" called me dear. I turned to him and said "Please do not call me that. I reserve that term for close family." He looked kinda shocked for a nanosecond and then covered it up with what I think of as the "I'm being gruff because I have no response" face. (We see that one a lot from him.) He said "Ok, I understand." When he got back from the bathroom, he called me and the secretary (also a notary) into his office (she was to witness it) and formally apologized. I'm the first person on the floor that he's formally apologized to. I'm also the person he hates 2nd most, or he did. I think he's starting to respect me more now that I've bit back and started being very brisk and professional in conversation with him. I don't expect him to ever like me, I just want a semi- peaceable work environment. Come to think of it, he's been being less of a dick this week in general. I dunno if he got laid, finally got off the rag, is plotting his next move, or got unofficially reprimanded; but whatever it is, worked, and I ain't gonna complain.
Screw the tenets idea.
Ate 2 c green curry and the innards of a spring roll for lunch. Drank a mug of herbal green pomegranate tea and a mug or green/ white/ oolong, followed by a mug of water. Went out into the field today for flood complaints and definitely got my sun in. I came in the building just this side of burnt. Dinner was chorizo con huevos (1/2 lb chorizo, 1.5 egg, 1/2 jalapeno, 1/4 onion, 3 cloves garlic.) I overran on o6 and calories, but came in at 24 for carbs. 140 g fat. Can't remember the last time i had that much.
Now to go swimming and do swim sprints.
swam 20 min, swim- sprint 10 min, 14 min sledgehammer.
Oh you go girl!!!
But dangerous territory... scarry! You've got balls woman! (a sentence I didn't think I'd say)
Wow, way to go with the boss situation. You totally got balls!
Kudos on handling the boss. I think you did it in a very professinal way, too. Because you didn't over-react, he couldn't just dismiss you as a bitch.
Awesome that you got an official apology, too. I think he will treat you with more respect from now on, because of this. YAY :)
I can't concentrate at work today, even with tea. I have a 3 day weekend starting tomorrow and my brain is fighting to get me to start early.
Went in to get a set of plans approved (street paving, no big deal) and got more constructive criticism than I anticipated because they forgot to tell me about certain things they do with certain aspects of plans for roadways. (Point tables, curve data, etc.) My boss is a bit of a perfectionist (I don't mind it, it's a good quality in an engineer and keeps us from having issues during construction.) It kinda stung to see my drawing get bled all over with red ink, but most of it was just stuff that I was unaware was an issue. I'm doing a lot better about those now than when I first started working under PEs, it used to nearly put me in tears. As for her boss, if anything, he's been quiet and I'm kinda wondering if he's avoiding me. I know what I did was probably a blow to his overly fragile bully ego.
Had some guacamole (really thin, chunky stuff) and a sliver of coconut cake this morning for a birthday. SLIVER, as in 1/8"x2"x3."

I love it! Only an engineer would give the dimensions of a sliver of cake!!!
Way to hold your own. Yeah, I had to get used to red ink a long time ago. It was when they asked if English was my second language that I used to get upset. Now, I just tell them to fuck off...and then I fix whatever they had an issue with.
Skipped lunch. Just wasn't hungry. That stew is still in the office fridge.
