It's the day of the week where randomness reigns. Keely's got it all going on over here. Go check it out. After you get done reading my post please.
I'm feeling more dorky than ever today. I think there are stages. Yesterday I was scared dorky. Today is nervous dorky. Why this week more than any other? Well you should ask. This week was the official unveiling of my digital library. This was a big deal. At least in my mind.
Part of this big deal was that I was interviewed by campus media. This scares the shit out of me. Why? Because I know myself. Here are some things that I know now about myself in relation to this interview:
- I know I should look to see if they posted it on the university website.
- I know I should do this before some intrepid librarian does it for me then posts it on YouTube. (cause you know they will)
- I know I should see if they sent it to the PBS station on campus.
- I know my hair looked like I had stuck my finger in a light socket.
- I know stuttered.
- I know I wish I had the confidence of MaryAnn.
- I know that I didn't have the confidence of MaryAnn so I most likely looked like a dork.
- I know that the interviewer was really nice to the poor stupid librarian standing before her.
- I know that the interviewee was really a dork. More than a dork. Wait? What is more than a dork?
- I know that this is only one of the interviews that I have to give. Next up is NPR.(hold me).
- I know I am so screwed.
We just found out our that our beautiful girl doggie, Nessa, is allergic to the proteins in regular (aka cheap) dog food. What does this mean? It means that we have the choice of buying her prescription dog food or vegetarian dog food. Let's look at our options a little more closely.
Prescription dog food: made with duck, venison or rabbit and costs the moon. (too hoity toity for this household). Now, I'm no mathematician (why I went to library school) but I'm thinking that when a 16 pound bag of dog food costs $60 and I have a 65 pound dog to feed. It's going to cost me?????? Uhhhhhhh....wait, I was never good at story problems let alone algebra. TOO DAMN MUCH!!!
Vegetarian dog food: Let's run our numbers one more time. Okay, let's not. A 16 pound bag of veggie dog food costs about $10 plus shipping but if I buy more than 2 or 3 bags the shipping is free. Even I, with my limited math skills, can figure out that our dog is going vegetarian.
You asked for it. So I'll be doing it. I'll be posting the spinach and cheddar dumplings and the olive pasties (pasties....snicker...I'm so immature) recipes on Friday or maybe as late as Saturday. Since, I'm a fly by the seat of my pants cook I'll need a day or two to remember what and how much of what I put into each recipe. Then try them out one more time because I'd hate to give you all faulty recipes. JR will love me even more.
It got really cold down here last night. Into the low 40s. That's cold for here. Cold enough that JR wanted to turn on the furnace for the first time. Being the tightwad that I am I told him; No, just go put more clothes on. We decided to just go to bed instead. Move along, nothing to see here...... HA! fooled you. We're too old for that kind of thing on a week night.
Well, it's getting to be time to head to work. Let's see if I can top yesterday's idiocy. This ought to be a no brainer since I have a 3 hour lunch meeting with a bunch of architects. At least they won't be talking about architect thingies and if I'm real lucky I may be able to pick up some consulting work. It's a shake of the dice today. ****Come on, mama needs a luxury cruise****
That is enough out of me. Scroll back up to the link at the top. Yeah, I am too lazy to link it down here, thank you. And if I was really demanding I'd insist that you leave a comment. Maybe the word insist needs to be changed to beg, plead, or whine since I'm feeling pretty vulnerable today. it's that whole interview thing. It totally freaked me out. Can ya tell?
