a boring update and a lunch survey

So here is a boring update of my life/weekend.
  • classes started for me on Thursday, things seem okay, but damn here comes the collaborative group work again, and then there's the whole buying books thing. bleh
  • I am only doing half days at school now. This is cool because I have never had free time in the afternoon like this. Maybe I will be productive and use it for work. or maybe I will start watching general hospital or something like that. doubtful I am more of an E! true hollywood kind of girl.
  • I had a flashback to undergrad when I got home from my half day of work Friday. After grocery shopping and other errands, Michael and I had a drink and watched a movie. Then I called Alyssa and realized what I am really doing used to be a frat house thing in Bloom called a 6 to 9. It evolved into more of a 6-1am sort of event as the event moved locations. A fun evening was had by all as Michael got the chance to play beer pong with Coors Light while I drank a pretty decent (AND FREE) magarita in a frat house.
  • I can't believe I just typed that last bullet I am REALLY OLD. But you would have enjoyed this Margarita too. I know was so tasty.
  • Saturday I volunteered at the YMCA exercise class for kids with Autism. (if I am lucky I will get paid for that, this will come in handy for those of you expecting Christmas presents from me)
  • Today I bought one of my books for class and I read the Preface (man I think of the geekiest ways of procrastinating) Then we went to see Corpse Bride with the last of the Free movie tickets, I can pay to go see indie films instead of feeling trapped in my billions of free crappy movie theater tickets.
  • Finally, in my widely exciting weekend I made my own chicken stock.
Well as you can see here, non-stop fun and excitement on this front.

One other thing I have been thinking of, Food. Right, like I am always thinking of food but this is in a different way, not just the "what food do I want in my mouth and tummy" kind of way.
People I work with eat a lot of crappy food. Things that come in boxes, that are prepackaged with extra food coloring, and with the labels proclaiming E Z prep. They have a lot of weird food things such as the girl that eats hotdogs dipped in apple sauce and the older lady that eats these interesting wrapped meat and cheese and condiment things that must be like some sort of Atkins/heartattack type lunch also the girl that doesn't eat any nuts and makes fun of me and another girl that eat fruit, (she calls us "healthy" and then laughs). Even better the cafeteria serves the kids such lovely items like mini corn dogs and fresh pizza bake. I don't know what that it pizza? is it pasta? who knows?
I am so relieved not to be there at lunch now that I leave at 12:30. I can go home and eat what I want because obviously whatever sandwich or fruit or vegetable I am eating is entirely alien and disgusting to all parties involved.
What do you eat for lunch?

Nanc, Hey what's up? Nice to catch up via blog. Sean is walking and talking alot. Good luck with the kids at school, it sounds like fun. Each moment you have with them can impact their lives, it's definitely intimidating.

i'm eating biagio leftovers. kinda yum, i didn't like it in the first place, though

Usually bring leftovers from the night before or some frozen low-calorie whatever was on special at Giant entree. And then I decide that I don't want it and go to Cosi.

Last night I had a nightmare that I was teaching science to high school kids.

Peanut butter and jelly with my baby carrots and yogurt. I'm the healthy one at my job, too.
