I could get used to having two days in a row off with the spousebeast that we can just hang at home.  We haven't had that for while (like, the last 19 months while I'd been working at Happy Acres).  He also mentioned yesterday that, since I quit, I'm not as "prickly."  I can see that.  I'm not angry and obessed with work all the time any more.

(We'll ignore the fact that I still wake up with a sense of dread in the morning that I have to go back, and I worry about my residents CONSTANTLY)

We went out for lunch yesterday, which was flipping hilarious in its futility.  EVERY place we wanted to eat was closed for the long 4th of July holiday.  We ended up going to Carolina Brewery, where we haven't gone in a decade due to a horrendous hummus related experience when I first came down here (so we're talking almost ten years to the day).  I don't know who they have in that kitchen now, but WOW!  What a change!  I odered the bbq pork sliders as an appetizer.  For $7.95 I got three AND a side of coleslaw (I refuse to put slaw on my BBQ.  I also drink unsweet tea.  I fail as a southern girl).  I ended up taking two of them home.  Kent got the calabash shrimp that came with fries, hush puppies, and coleslaw.  I'm not a fan of hush puppies (proof positive that there is ONE kind of fried dough I won't eat), but he *raved* over how light they were and happened to run into the chef when he was coming out of the restroom and complimented her profusely AND slipped her a fiver.

I love that guy,


Came home to discover a note from Tony, the mafia hitman er, exterminator had been by to do a preliminary sweep (four other apartments are having the same fun we are.  It has NEVER been this bad in the eight years we've lived here).  It would have been nice if he had told us we needed to take EVERYTHING out of the kitchen cabinets.  So he did a quick hit and will be back to do a deep job at a later date.  Glad we're not paying for it.

Do I have to even say what a pain in the ass this is?  Especially since I am hotflashing like a mofo today and having to rob Peter to pay Paul in terms of finding storage containers  (all of my carefully organized yarn has been pitched into garbage bags for temporary storage.  *sob*).  Ah, well.  I'd been wanting to organize the cabints anyway.  Knowing my level of procrastination, it probably wouldn't have gotten done any time soon if *something*  hadn't forced my hand.

Still waiting to hear back from Promising Job Interview.  Of course, again...long holiday weekend.  My timing on interviews SUCKS.  But I feel good that I did all of my new hire paperwork  *fingers crossed*

I hope you hear back from your interviewer soon.

That's the crazy thing about bad jobs, we think of them often.

I come from Kentucky Coal Miners, biologically, and I still don't like sweet tea.

Fingers and toes crossed. Stay cool!

We have a Carolina Brewery in PBO, but haven't been excited about its food. Not much selection for pescetarians on the menu down here. Also probably tainted by the tea & water experience we had -- PBO water can taste pretty horrid at times, and we hit them on one of those days.

Good luck reorganising the cupboards. I hope you get everything sorted.

Fingers crossed for the job!

I remember having hushpuppies in the past and not liking them.
