I thought I was being so on-the-ball with things by staying in my work e-mail loop during the holidays so there wouldn't be a ton of catching up now that we're all back rolling again. Wrong. I've spent the last few days pretty much having to remind myself of which people I have to re-remind about things they owe me. This misses the whole "tag, you're it" concept of work e-mails.
Netflix, you're going to be the end of any sort of productive use of my free time. I've spent the last few days entrenched with old episodes of Lipstick Jungle and Cashmere Mafia (Remember those shows? They were both touted as the new Sex and the City, but neither seemed to wield the magic that Carry Bradshaw in her Manolos seemed to). And what have I learned? Well, Brooke Shields is really tall.
Starting on January 2 - because the 1st was a pancaked, fried chicken loss - I have been trying to eat healthier. This time for me it means eating only whole grains, less sugar and red meats and about as much whole unprocessed foods that I can find. Which means I have been gnawing on home-made extra lean turkey burgers and steamed kale/baked sweet potatoes. Sounds not terrible, right? Except of course when I'm not allowed to have it, I want pizza, Panera Bread broccoli and cheese soup (in a bread bowl, natch), lamb gyros, spaghetti with meatballs ...
The singer Tiffany was on What Not to Wear recently. Which got me into full-on elementary school nolstagia mode - I think we're alone now / Doesn't seem to be anyone around / I think we're alone now / The beating of our hearts is the only sound ...
