What I've Been Up To

Too much time has passed since my last entry. I can’t revert back to my bad blogger ways! Here’s a quick rundown on what’s been going on lately, with a promise of a few fuller, more detailed follow-up entries this weekend:

Work has been much busier than usual. If everything goes according to plan, I will have at least three trials this summer. That in itself is not necessarily horrible, but one of the cases is with a defense attorney who shall be known as Liar Liar. She has been known to drive sane, ethical lawyers such as myself to the brink of madness. I foresee much agitation in my near future.

My cooking mojo is back! During 2007 I would cook at least three new recipes a week. In addition to getting burnt out (no pun intended), Eddie and I also steadily gained weight. So for most of 2008 I have been sticking with boring protein, veggie & whole grain dishes in order to slow our roll (around our respective bellies – bad pun intended). But I’ve tried out several new recipes over the past weeks that were hits while also being relatively healthy.

I got sick and was out of the office for almost a week. Again. This is the second time this year that I have had to take so many consecutive sick days. The last time around it was the flu. This time it was a cold. Both sucked, but at least I lost five pounds when I came down with the flu. All I lost with the cold is apparently a layer of skin on the edge of my nose, which now hurts like a mofo.

I am still holding steady at –5lbs. on my Six Week Mission. There are only two more weeks to go. sigh. I guess I should get rid of the agitation generated by Liar Liar by hitting the gym?

The judges on Top Chef nearly gave me a heart attack with some of their wacky decisions in the final weeks of Season 4. But in the end the right cheftestant prevailed much to my relief. I was on the verge of giving up the show forever if a certain person won. Who am I kidding? I am totally Top Chef's bitch.

I agree re Top Chef! Man, editing is really something!

Good luck with the weight, although I think you look tiny!

OMG...I was about to have a heart attack watching this last night. So scared she was going to win.

I do have to say that despite being a huge bacon fan...bacon ice cream sounds downright vile and disgusting. Ugh!
