Kitchen Notes and Lunch

Tuesday, August 31st, 2004

Man, it is one GEORGOUS day out there. I had lunch with Shar today and the sun was out and a bit of a cool breeze too and it was just all around pleasant. Is there a job where I can sit around on my butt all day enjoying the outside? Maybe they ought to institute “go sit on your ass” days, like personal days but you just don’t come back from lunch. I tell you, when *I* take over the world I’m going to not only institute a couple GSOYA days but I will strongly recommend a four day work week AND the immediate adoption of siestas. A short workday nap can only improve the disposition of more than a few people I know.

The Last Fist Full of Yojimbo

Guess what a house with one film major and one communications major does for fun on the weekend? Mifune is my hero and Bruce does beat up like nobody’s business but Clint’s got the squint down to a science. Plus, nobody smokes a skinny cigar like Clint. But first, the post cap to Friday’s precap.

More Picto Goodness

Hi again! It’s time for another pictorial peek into the Q house remodeling project (of which this part has been done for a while now but I haven’t gotten the pics up yet. Eh, just working on boo time). This is the last new knick knack shelf that stands in the corner of the room opposite the book shelves.

The Friday Precap

Friday, August 27th, 2004

Heh, look at me, all witty like with the “precap”. Why, I could easily be the poster child for amusing what with that small jest. “Precap”, like that which comes before the traditional Monday “recap”, get it? I am stylin and full of the clever today, except that’s about all the funny I have right there in the title. No wait a minute! Ahhh, sorry, false alarm.

The Tuesday Weekend Review

Tuesday, August 24th, 2004

Oooo! An elusive Tuesday post AND a weekend recap PLUS an announcement of POOOOST dating! Take a look at the very special JSFR for Sunday which, in the now established tradition, was posted on Monday. I’m all about traditionalism here, mostly when it enables my slothatude.

Sadness in the Key of Sammich

Wednesday, August 18th, 2004

TANSTAAFL indeed, even when the lunch is free. I scored a DEluxe deli catered lunch bag today, because I am just that cool (and I set up a video thing for the presenter, but I prefer to think it was my coolness coming in to play), and when I opened up my “chicken salad” it was pretty unmistakably roast beef. Oh the sadness, because this place makes really good if incredibly overpriced deli sammiches and I was looking forward to some free chicken salad sammich action. Alas, I do not partake of the cow so this beautiful pile of delicious looking beef was discarded. Somewhere out there, a beef lover is crying. Probably the person who got the “roast beef” sandwich only to discover chicken salad.

What Went Down: Eggs and General Crankiness

Monday, August 16th, 2004

Hee, I guess I decided that nothing was really worth writing on Friday, but since it’s Monday I have the entire weekend…to REVIEW! Love Mondays. I’m also loving this particular Monday because the boss, she is out The. Entire. Week. Excuse me a moment…


OK, back.

Picto-blorganization Part Many

Thursday, August 12th, 2004

Or something. Hey! A quick note to you JSF Junkies, Pooooooooostdated! Check out the new squidgie rice cakes. Fun? Evil? Amusing? Yes! Anyway, here are more fun pics of our living room remodeling, this time the other side of the room.

I’m SsssssUPER, Thanks for Asking!

In retrospect, Tuesday should have been No ASSHATS day. Alessar and I had decided that Monday we would suffer No Asshats, so it became NO ASSHAT day but it was sort of a wasted thing. It was more a No Asshats on account rather than there being an actual need to declare a No Asshat day. But Tuesday, Oi! Asshats out of the woodwork. And I thought we had sprayed for them!
