Talking

And I get a hard time about posting pics?
CL, PM me anytime

Is it wrong of me to not answer hubby's email from hours ago about a conference we have to attend today? He has known about it for months. Has gotten a reminder yesterday. Notes on the fridge, calendar, blah, blah...I guess this is why I can't stay awake today...

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

He's doing pretty good, wonderfully in the crate. It's really been great with us buzzing around getting ready to move and with the packers here today he wasn't underfoot, yet was able to keep an eye on everybody to make sure they did their job.

I was walking home when this guy took off his hat and bowed to me as I passed him, strange. Guess he thought I was pretty?

Too cute!

I wish men still took off their hats in the presence of a lady. Not just men in the armed forces (which I guess they do so often around their superiors that it becomes second nature).

I do too.

I also wish they wouldn't swear around women they don't know in public.

It was strange at first but then I remembered men used to do that back in the day.


Today is a good day, I went to the supermarket, these two women were in awe of my curls lol I guess my hair looked great. These three strangers made me feel great

In the American armed forces, people take their hats off inside (or under covered areas) and put them on outside. It doesn't have anything to do with your superior.

Or women IME.


So I went to our first "Stitch and B$%#h" tonight and had a blast. As usual I enjoy the company of women older than me than I do of my peers.

I didn't know that! Bonus points!

Discipline is sexy as is chivalry. Why can't I spell anymore?

Five more days....five more days.

I'm sorta doing the dance that bad guy in kayb's signature line is doing.

So as I have posted, when the chef hired me, he said I would work fish as well as GM. He reiterated this when I started. I like to think that he's good cop chef. He greets me in typical French fashion with the two kisses, he's usually rather good-humored. His executive sous is bad cop. He's an American man (though he says he is originally from Albania). He was totally suspicious of hiring me on the day of the interview, he cracks down on people, and is fairly intimidating for fear that he'll rip you a new one. When I first started he was ready to be on me. And he made no mention of me working the line, only GM. But it seems I've made it obvious that I am a competent cook. I was actually told as much by one of the sous chefs (which basically every single guy who works here but the prep cooks and the guys who work with me are). Executive sous shortly put me on an earlier schedule because he said I was the best at the station and making sure things are in order. He has pretty much backed off me in a short amount of time having seen that I'm not likely to do something stupid if left to my own devices.
Anyway, yesterday he asked me if I'm ready to start working the line! Because I've shown I may actually be for real and because he doesn't seem satisfied with the way that sous works there. And executive sous is a guy I've had to hear call someone a pu$$y, talking about someone not having balls, and I forget what else that is basically insulting to me as a woman.
And yep, if I were a man I wouldn't have needed to prove so much because there just wouldn't be so much suspicion about my ability to do my job.
But it still feels good to have proven them wrong. Especially one whose arm basically had to be twisted to see my ability as a cook.

Though I admit I am intimidated by working the line here. When it gets rolling, it's going to be 1000+ services all the time. Executive sous worked the grill during those really busy days and my goodness! I've built up the ability to basically hunker down and not panic when in the weeds, which is one of the more important things to develop as a cook, but this was another level. I'm not sure I could keep calm if I has to do what he was doing. He had moments where it was "I need 17 burgers" now. Y'all, 17 burgers in one shot. With all the other stuff he had working as well. Yikes.

Saria, you are amazing and wonderful and fantastically talented, and if anyone can hold her own in the the kitchen, it's you.

We're all very impressed and proud of you. Sniff!

(p.s. for entertainment purposes, I'd like you to know I found a mosquito in my hair this morning, and no, I don't know long it had been there.)

Thanks, ninja. And I am highly amused by that, if a bit baffled. Heh. I got two huge bites on my arm recently, since I'm currently living in a place where mosquitoes abound.

Saria, I only need two words to describe your kitchen prowess: you rock.

Ninja: LMAO@ skeeter in ya hair!!

One of our packing guys looks like a young and trim Vince Vaughn.

The other packing guy keeps busting my chops for all the baskets and containers I have. And (brace yourselves) for the 7 glass liquid measuring cups I have (two sets plus an extra 1 cup). Those helped make the cookies he kept inhaling yesterday while packing up my kitchen so he best shut it.
