Recent good things:
1. Two Fridays before Christmas I came home from a second interview at Pitt (don’t get excited, I didn’t get the job) around 4:30 and it was already starting to get dark. When I opened my front door, one of those spiral light trees was glowing in my “dining room.” It hadn’t been there when I left.
2. One of the baristas where I get coffee on Saturday mornings gave me a giant free latte.
3. The hott boy at one of my favorite cafes charged me $2 for a pizza and some coffee. Should have been about $10.
4. A co-worker from my basket packing temp job bought my yogurt and grape leaves two Saturdays ago and then brought me Greek pastries at work one night.
5. I have a new comforter and it is wonderful - 100% cotton cover, wool/silk fill.
6. Dinner last Friday. That was good. Depending on how you look at it, it took one year or 16 years.
Recent not so good things:
1. UPMC temping. I’m in a cubicle and not answering phones, but there really isn’t much to do and I’m bored. Your healthcare dollars at work.
2. I’m having a moral dilemma. Should I tell that girl what she’s getting in to? I mean forewarned is forearmed, no? The women have got to stick together, no? But considering that she KNEW we were still together when they started seeing each other, does she deserve a heads up? And will she even belive me?
3. We’re looking at spring for another THS tour. So far away.
4. My oven bakes so unevenly that about ¼ of my chocolate chip cookies are slightly burnt, but still delicious.
5. I really don’t have anything to put here, I just wanted both #6’s to correspond.
6. Okra. And being hopeful, but terrified, but unable to stop thinking and making up all kinds of crazy scenarios in my head that make no sense and gearing myself up for a big let-down, mainly because if I prepare for the worst, it won’t suck so badly if/when it happens and if it doesn’t, it will be even better, sort of a surprise.
