Definitely meeting awesome PPKers for a delicious brunch at Hogtown Vegan today. The company was delightful and we had a great time.

Ha this made me laugh. I turn my keyboard over and spank it every so often too to clear out the crumbs. Rhinestones! That's one for the books.

today was a pretty great day.
I went for a morning walk with my awesome friend and we walked down to the beach and then out to the wharf, where we watched sea lions frolick and bark and rest and play.
Then I cleaned out, made muffins, snuggled with my dogs.
Then I went to a totally great 2 1/2 hour yoga class.
And then my parents and my brother and his family all came over for a big take-out pizza party. We had to order pizzas from 3 different places to keep everyone happy, but it was worth it! :)

Meggs, that's awesome! Screw you, cancer!

Last night my best friend from back home/former roommate texted me to say she was in Chicago and did I want to hang out on Sunday? Yes! I had to work at 3, so we decided to go to brunch. Once we realized it was Mother's Day and every good brunch spot would be packed, I offered to cook for 8 people on 15 hours notice. Never done that before!

Despite a mishap with some biscuits and a quick run to the store for berries, everything went off without a hitch. We even managed to make our dirty, dirty apartment presentable. I made kale & sun-dried tomato frittata, herbed drop biscuits with sage gravy and tempeh sausage crumbles, stout pancakes with mixed berry sauce, roasted rosemary potatoes, and blueberry lemon muffins. Also mimosas and fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. Everything was delicious and vegan and got rave reviews (Fred did make some bacon for the omnis).

It was so great to see old friends and show off how awesome vegan food can be. I miss those kids! It was such a good morning.

I had a long vegan adventure with a bunch of friends in the woods near (ish) Mannheim. We were officially there to start planning and organizing this fall's EU Embracing the World fundraiser, but in practice it was more like adult summer camp. Completely ridiculous and wonderful, lots of music, food and woods aaaaaand (!) I made a lot of connections based on my university study, which means: I might get to go to ETW's French farm near Chartres to teach what I know; that I get to go back in September to train the Press Corps and (!) that I'm now part of the Press Corps, since I gave a spontaneous training on how cognitive science can improve press relations (etc. etc.). I made a couple of new friends, and got better friends with people I already know, and :) :) :)

Also, as a bonus, the 2 Dutch cars played tag on the highway driving back, and the hijinks we played on each other got more and more ridiculous as the drive wore on. Completely ridiculous. HOORAY weekends!

Calling in sick to work. If I get the job this week, all my current sick hours will go away, and I earned them. Don't feel guilty about it. Not one bit.

I am so confused right now I don't know what to think. There's got to some kind of mistake. Take the money and run?

Submitted it for consideration, even but still no way it was good enough.

Go zwingtip! I obviously have not read your paper but from what you've said around the forum, you're a more dedicated student than most and also, you know, wicked smart. Congratulations!

Did you know that I really love this thread? Almost every night, I ask my husband "what was the best part of your day?" I really like thinking back on it.

I guess the best part of my day today was doing my yoga practice, which is often the case. But also, today I learned that I will officially be buying the yoga studio where I've been teaching for the last ten years or so. I have two partners and today we officially reached an agreement with the current owner. It's very exciting!

Talked to my sister about my mom... Made me feel a little less unhinged and a little more like my response is appropriate and in proportion to the situation.

Congrats again Amey! (running in to you & Alana was the other best part of my day!)
