The title’s not sarcastic, we have a difficult assignment due this Thursday and I’m glad to still have a day standing between me and it!
My shift at work went well yesterday but when I got out at 9 I was just too tired to photograph, or blog, or think. We do not do Daylight Saving Time where I grew up and my body still hasn’t quite gotten used to it. Every year I am so exhausted for the weeks immediately following the time changes.
I needed a little extra help this morning too.
The vanilla flavored Doubleshot was very tasty. I’d drink it for flavor alone if it weren’t for all the caffeine.
Solid food was good too.
I had a Siggi’s Strawberry topped with two sliced yellow plucots and a drizzle of maple syrup.
The yellow plucots were good but I think I prefer the dapple variety. These were more tart.
Clinic was good too. I had my first teenage patient (I’ve been with adults and infants previously) and it was a different sort of interviewing experience. We also met as a group for some interesting mini-discussions on anorexia nervosa and cystic fibrosis.
I added a big handful of shredded carrots on top for veg.
It was good, and I very much liked the amount of heat to the sauce, but desperately in need of a crunch factor. I have a few other flavors that I purchased on sale and I might stock up on peanuts to top them with.
Dinner was actually a blogger event. T.G.I.Friday’s invited a bunch of local bloggers to try out their new menu.
The plates were portioned for sharing (and the light was pretty bad) so the media contact actually requested that we not take any food photographs. Instead I’ll do a recap of what I thought of the dishes I tried when she sends me press info/high-res photos. I will say for now that I was surprised and impressed. It felt very strange to not be photographing though!
I brought my friend Kim with me and we ate ’til we were stuffed and a had a lot of fun. It was nice getting to meet some of the other local bloggers.
I came home from the event planning on working but instead I’m hurrying to bed. Adam baked up a ton of food to pack for his lunches this week (eggplant, zucchini, tomatillos, mushrooms, rice, and a bunch of seasonings and sauces) and the apartment is permeated with a smell that’s making me ill. It actually smells delicious, but the sensory overload has given me nausea and a headache. Tomorrow will be insanely busy but hopefully oder-free!
