Someday, You Will Ache Like I Ache

Why are German chocolate cakes festooned with coconut? Coconut is not particularly German.

In any case, today we had a cake for all the office folk with June birthdays. They brought me a leftover slice at the end of the day, so I was, quite literally, The Girl With the Most Cake.

Today, a departing British man actually told me “Cheerio.” He really was British too, from our London office.

5:30 update:
Okay, another Euro guy just told me “Ciao.” !!!

My Undying Love

I heart heart heart my filipina supervisor and coworkers. Today they made quesadillas for everyone. Yesterday they brought us home cooked noodles and pork skewers.

Sadly, the way to my heart IS through my stomach.

But I will Never Give Up Carbs

According to, I actually have a large frame, and therefore might only be a pound overweight. Which is reassuring, even if I have gained about 20 lbs. in the past two years in spite of jogging (interval and non), kickboxing, rowing, stair climbing, core training, push ups, and weight training six days a week. I would be further reassured since apparently I have skipped 3 months’ worth of periods, except I am still covered in enough fat to make me an enticing meal for cannibals. (Self basting!)

Not that my self worth is actually dependent on my weight, but my initial value on the meat market is. Parental advice is to join a church group, because “they are atheists too, and joined to have fun and meet people.” Still, I’d like to uphold some standards before I get too desperate.

Why did I give up binge drinking again?

In other news, I caved and started reading “Absurdistan,” which is great fun.

Everything IS Illuminated, Goddamn It

I need thicker window shades; I need to black out the sun. Or, at the very least, those annoying streetlights.

Finally got around to seeing Pirates 3, which weirdly enough, I didn’t like at all. I think once you’ve shown your audience an eerily beautiful army of undead skeletons, one octopus-faced villain is not so impressive. Nor is Orlando Bloom’s “facial hair.”

And after all those years in the anime biz, I feel let down when the tentacled monster is just some dude impotently playing his organ.

Meanwhile, my mother made an excellent tiramisu for Father’s Day. I didn’t, because I’m an ingrate.

What do you know? Kefir is tastier than yogurt.
